The estate was originally built for the iconic Wrigley family and was later sold to the Hills family of Hills Bros. Coffee.

The property had been on the market since 2006 and in that time Hills received multiple offers from developers, all of which she declined. Hills wished to preserve the natural beauty of the land and Sedona.

“I am so proud that we were able to procure the perfect sale where the seller, the buyer, and the community of Sedona and the surrounding areas are happy and appreciative,” said Pennington. “We feel blessed to be involved in this sale and appreciate the efforts of Roy Grimm, the local agent, who brought an incredible buyer to us. The seller did the right thing by refusing to sell to developers while waiting for the perfect buyer to come along. We, as a community, should applaud her efforts.”


The spectacular property is a world-class getaway, just 1.5 miles away from Sedona. The perfect retreat offers stunning, forever views of Sedona’s famous red rocks with much of the land backing up to the Coconino National Forest.

The main residence is a 6,700-square-foot Southwestern-style estate that boasts soaring walls of glass that yield unmatched views of Sedona. Additionally, there is a beautifully refined 1,300-square-foot guest casita and 1,600-square-foot caretaker’s quarters. In total the property boasts 5 bedrooms and 9 bathrooms.

The expansive property also features a gym, an amphitheater, multiple terraces, a lap pool and a spa.

Additionally, on the property is a private 2.5-acre park that is bordered by refined red rock. The setting sun draws a rich color from the iron-stained rocks allowing for a peaceful retreat or a sophisticated event complete with covered picnic tables, a bandstand, stone fire pit, barbecue area, and bathroom facilities.

The spectacular property also boasts state-of-the-art equestrian facilities including multiple barns, a tack room, locker rooms, 3 arenas, a veterinary clinic, stables, and a private cantina bar.
