A Peek Inside Our Commitment to Quality

Posted by Dornhomes on Dec 10, 2018 2:17:17 PM

Building a brand new home is a major step for most people, no matter where you are in life. You may be selling an existing home, securing financing, and changing cities, and those are all steps you’ll take before you even start designing your new home. After you’ve chosen your model and met with our professional interior designers in our state-of-the-art Design Center, we get to work building your dream home. All of that work planning, and building culminates in one moment: the moment you step through the front door. We understand just how important that moment is. Because that moment is about more than just what you see as the door opens, it’s about what you’ve dreamt of seeing for the past few weeks or months.

Exploring Boutique Dining and Fine Art in Cottonwood

Posted by Dornhomes on Nov 21, 2018 8:03:37 AM

Walking through Old Town Cottonwood it’s easy to imagine yourself on the same street 50 or even 100 years ago. Main Street and the Town Square are modernized but otherwise relatively unchanged. The real difference is that instead of general stores, saloons, or soda shops you’ll find small-batch wineries and locally-sourced restaurants populated by craftsmen and women that are redefining Old Town through passion and good old fashioned hard work. When you live in Cottonwood, you’re only a few minutes from all of the restaurants, art galleries, and wineries that Old Town has to offer. With so much to do in Old Town, we thought we’d share some of our favorite spots.

Finding your Own Retreat at Quail Canyon in Cottonwood

Posted by Dornhomes on Sep 21, 2018 10:34:48 AM

Nestled between Mingus Mountain to the west and the Mogollon Rim to the east lies a valley that some have called the heart of central Arizona. The Verde Valley, through which the Verde River flows, is a snapshot of the changing lives of Arizonans over millennia. From the centuries-old Tuzigoot National Monument and Montezuma’s Castle to formerly abandoned mining towns like Jerome that have been revived as National Historic Places. As Arizona has grown and evolved, the Verde Valley has evolved as well. Small towns that mined copper in the early 20th century are now home to boutique art galleries, antique shops, and wineries.

Small Town, Big Tastes: Downtown

Posted by Dornhomes on Mar 14, 2017 11:00:00 PM

The reasons homebuyers decide to move to a small town from a large city are as varied and individual as the homebuyers themselves. Typically, people focus on the accessibility of the outdoors, the sense of community, and the people. But they often resign themselves to the idea that they’ll have to make sacrifices in the variety that living in a big city can bring to life. Especially when it comes to food. Fortunately, in Prescott at least, that’s simply not the case.

Whether you’re a cat person or a dog person, if you have pets you understand just how big of a role they play in our lives.

That’s why it’s so important to show them the love and affection that they show us every day. And, fortunately for us, Prescott is one of the pet-friendliest cities in Arizona. First off, let’s talk about…
