Arizona Mansion!

  So when I went to my see my brother in Arizona for the weekend and we went to Sedona for a day trip.  The weather was beautiful, it was a clear sunny day and Sedona was amazing! 
We stopped at the tourist center to find out the best places to hike in the area. 

One of the places that was suggested was that we see the chapel, so far all the other areas that we had been sent to were rock formations, but this was an actual chapel built into the side of the mountain:

  The view from the side of the chapel was amazing!  There was this huge house: 503 Chapel Road.  It is huge!!!  Clearly someone rich and famous had to live there. 
 So once we got back from our day trip we did a google search to see if we could find out anything about the owners.  The land was bought for $285,000 in 2001 and construction started to build the house, shortly there after.  For a while it was rumored that Johnny Depp owned the house, and then Nicholas Cage.  Finally it was determined that the real owner is the Dr that invented the laser for lasik eye surgery.  He has never moved into the house and put it on the market for a cool $29 million!  Now, I'm not sure who lives there today but the house is certainly a sight to see! Be sure to check it out if you ever visit Sedona!
