Kenwood house description

Brambleberry is a luxurious three-and-a-half acre estate in the heart of Sonoma’s Valley of the Moon bordering vineyards, near renowned wineries and centrally located for wine country touring in the Sonoma, Napa, Alexander, Dry Creek and Russian River Valleys. In fact, Brambleberry was featured in a recent article in Travel + Leisure magazine. The author chose Brambleberry as his base for touring all of Sonoma County!

Brambles of wild blackberry border the property. Guests delight in blackberry picking in late summer and early fall. The bucolic, park-like setting includes a seasonal creek lined with majestic oaks and a seasonal pond. This private, quiet Sonoma vacation rental, on level grounds appealing to all ages, is reached by a long, tree-lined and gated driveway. The 3+ bedroom, traditional farmhouse-style home has a wonderful wraparound veranda that provides a cooling retreat in the summer heat. Take in pristine views of nearby Sugarloaf, the landmark Sonoma Valley peak, while luxuriating in the heated pool or custom spa.

The 2600 square foot wine country vacation home has been thoroughly remodeled and updated yet has kept its vintage style, with high-end fixtures and appointments throughout. Ceilings range from 9 feet to over 12 feet high. Furniture has been chosen for comfort and includes numerous antique and period pieces. Antique prints, oil paintings and unique handmade treasures decorate the house. Brambleberry is fully handicapped accessible and is equipped with access ramps, an elevator and an accessible full bath.

Serious and casual chefs alike will delight in Brambleberry’s large designer kitchen, which has been featured in Better Homes and Gardens. Its dining nook seats ten and overlooks the pool. Luxury appliances, including a massive Wolfe six-burner range and oven and Thermador convection oven, are complemented by granite counter tops, a marble baker’s counter, a center island ideal for gourmet meal preparation and high-end cookware and dishware. Adjoining the kitchen, the formal dining room has a beautiful trestle dining table and an office area also overlooking the pool. Keep in touch during your wine country escape with the well equipped office, with generous work space, high speed internet/Wi-Fi, guest computer and printer/copier/scanner/fax. From the dining room enter the large, inviting living/family room with fireplace of local field stone surrounded by ample seating. When it’s cool, build a roaring wood fire in the high-efficiency, clean-burning fireplace insert. Luxuriate in the fire’s warmth as you converse, enjoy a book or take in a movie on the theatre-like 60” plasma TV. Step outside through French doors to the wraparound veranda furnished with comfortable rocking chairs and vintage wicker and bistro seating. Also on the ground floor are a den, two half bathrooms, and a large finished mudroom/laundry room that gives easy access to the outdoor living area, pool, spa and bocce court.

Brambleberry can sleep up to 10, although we contemplate that large groups will include small children and not more than seven adults. Upstairs are three spacious bedrooms, all with views. The master has a king and a twin, one guest room has a queen and the second guest room sleeps four with a queen and trundle bed. The den downstairs sleeps two with a trundle sleigh bed and sliding doors for privacy. The master bath has a large stall shower and a freestanding clawfoot bathtub. The guest bath has a shower-tub combination.

The beautiful estate-sized pool has been completely remodeled, with automatic salt chlorination for comfort and an automatic recessed child safety cover that also keeps it clean and warm. The solar heating system can be supplemented by gas heat (by prior arrangement and at cost) in cooler months if desired. A custom stone spa is available for enjoyment year-round. Enjoy a warm outdoor shower after a swim or soak in the spa. A custom bocce court with premium Har-Tru surface measuring 12 feet by 65 feet, provides hours of fun for all ages. Comfortable outdoor seating on the patio and pool deck, extensive lawns and mature shade trees provide the perfect setting for outdoor dining and relaxation.

Brambleberry is fully equipped for young children including two Pack 'n Plays, high chair, stroller and baby monitors. A full collection of ride-on toys and wagons can be made available as well. Other amenities include two-zone high-efficiency central air and gas heat, water purification system for the house and the pool, double-paned windows, automated security system, computer with high speed internet access and Wi-Fi, three TV's (including 60” plasma HDTV) on cable with DVD/VCR, gas grill, croquet, horseshoes, bocce ball, ping pong and basketball.

Because this is our family country home we discourage large rental parties or heavy entertaining. We wish not to disturb our neighbors in this peaceful, private area. By prior arrangement, a limited number of day guests may be considered.

Brambleberry’s sophisticated, well-appointed indoors appeals to discerning adults; its outdoors is a paradise for children of all ages.

Brambleberry is a luxury Wine Country House - a Sonoma Valley retreat that is sure to be part of many happy memories.
