"The Light House" is a collection of indoor and outdoor spaces created
with a complimentary merging of Indonesian, Japanese, Moroccan and
East Indian cultures. Its warm, inviting rooms are interspersed with comforting courtyards, peaceful meditation gardens, hanging lounges,
tranquil pools, and restful waterfalls.
The Light House offers a full sensory environment enhanced by inspirational natural and handmade architectural essentials: egg-shaped door knobs, pebble stone walls, hammered tin lights from
Asia, custom furniture, hand-carved doors & banisters. Extensive custom trellises & 'weathered' rustic fencing. The Light House offers the following elements of 'Green Architecture': It is positioned on the site for windows to take advantage of winter sun heating and summer shade cooling. The
entrance is protected from direct summer sun and the south windows
and door glass have summer shade cooling. There is maximum
insulation in the ceilings and exterior walls. The windows are
energy efficient. There are ceiling fans throughout. 50% of the
lumber is from certified sustainable sources. The stone and
flagstone used throughout are materials from regionally extracted
sources. The countertops are custom dyed concrete. The interior paints are nontoxic. The ceramic tile and natural stone are installed with low toxic mastic and grout. The car port is detached. Water-based finishes are used on floors and woodwork. The casework is formaldehyde-free. The irrigation system
has rainwater sensors so vegetation is not watered during rains. Non
toxic cleaners/scents are used throughout the home. Most of the
mattresses are made of organic latex.
The Light House also incorporates the principles of Feng Shui to
create an environment that is energetically aligned promoting
harmony, serenity, creativity and vitality. An impressive cleansing
crystal is strategically placed in the center of the house to ensure
a healthy environment and numerous Feng Shui essentials are found
throughout this residential landmark. The one thing missing is the cable TV. After a couple of days of unwinding, many welcome the break from TV and use the time at the Light House to unstress and rejuvenate. The natural outdoor beauty of Sedona is just out the back door which includes beautiful Oak Creek.
