Features

This very private gated retreat, resting on over 4.5 acres just east of the historic town of Sonoma, California, is the perfect manifestation of the relaxed yet sophisticated indoor-outdoor lifestyle for which the Napa and Sonoma Wine Country is known worldwide. Surrounded by vineyards – including its own approximately 1.5-acre cabernet sauvignon vineyard -- rolling low hills and lovely landscaping including palms, lawn and a charming rose garden, the home exudes an air of spaciousness and light. Walls of folding doors with clerestory windows above flank a substantial fireplace in the living room, and open to create a seamless flow between there, the adjacent formal dining area, and the expansive terrace. If the typically perfect wine country weather calls for dining al fresco, however, a sheltering pergola awaits just through the French doors of the nearby family room. In fact, French doors, complemented by an abundance of windows, allow outdoor access and memorable views from nearly every room of the home.

The tranquil master bedroom is complemented by its truly luxurious spa-like bath, with its pampering soaking tub set in a mirrored bay and looking out to treetops; creating the ambiance of bathing in a peaceful grove. The gourmet kitchen offers accoutrements to please even the most discerning chef. Top of the line appliances, a spacious and versatile center island, custom cabinetry and countertops, and multiple windows providing a peaceful vista comprise this delightful culinary center. Upstairs, each guest room hosts a private balcony overlooking the beautiful courtyard and its fireplace, fountain, dining and lounging areas, and showcasing a spa and sparkling solar-heated pool.

Additional amenities include an office/den with its full bath, 80 Italian Tuscan blend olive trees, a 3-car garage, and a photovoltaic solar system. A separate yet contiguous approximately 4.6-acre parcel is available for purchase as well. With the enchanting town of Sonoma, acclaimed wineries, and world-class dining and shopping just minutes away, this fabulous estate is perfect for hosting and entertaining family and friends in utmost comfort, privacy and style.

Neighborhood


Sonoma

A small town with a rich history, the center of the locavore food movement, and situated in the heart of Wine Country, the city of Sonoma is content to play country mouse to its more citified cousin, Napa. You won't find enormous tour buses disgorging hundreds of passengers in downtown Sonoma; the city of 10,000 residents is mostly laid-back and quiet.
Centered on what many call one of the most beautiful town plazas in the state, with its historic, preserved Mission that dates back to 1823, Sonoma has the feel of a small country town -- that is, if a small country town boasted more than a dozen tasting rooms of award-winning wineries. Surrounded by vineyards and more than 60 world-class wineries that mix the elegant with the down home, Sonoma is ground zero for great wine and the lifestyle that goes with it.

All that makes Sonoma a premier destination, sought after for its mellow pace, natural beauty, and proximity to San Francisco, just 45 miles south. Sonoma offers plenty of things to do, including jazz festivals, parades, cooking classes, the Sonoma International Film Festival, and exhibitions and openings at Sonoma Valley Museum of Art.

Spacious homes in the vineyards and rolling hills around Sonoma command spectacular views. Today, the multimillion-dollar estates of Sonoma range from Tuscan-style villas to more adventurous concrete and glass architectural statements.
