SONOMA & THE VALLEY OF THE MOON - Sonoma Vacation Rental estate like a country park resting on 2 1/4 acres in the exclusive and historic Spreckels Estate enclave of Sobre Vista. One of the finest Sonoma Vacation Rentals and Sonoma Luxury Rentals and Vacation Homes. Sonoma Vacation Rental in the Valley of the Moon including a grand 6,500 square foot mid-century contemporary home that was built along side the historic 1898 Spreckels Estate tennis court. There is a classic Thomas Church designed swimming pool, a raised grass volleyball court, basketball, horseshoes, croquet, picnic areas, hammocks and an outdoor Jacuzzi. We always hear, in view of the limited photographs, that the property is so much more than our guests expected. We love it, and hope that you will too.
Common Areas: The home features a 40 foot entrance gallery leading to the great room with its 17 foot ceilings and massive stone fireplace. On either side of the great room is the formal dining room and the den with stone fireplace. A large chef's kitchen compliments the morning breakfast room with stone fireplace and overlooks the pool, tennis court and valley views to the east. Through the adjacent billiard room you enter the family room with baby grand piano and 50' flat screen television. The artwork is historic and thought-provoking...cupids and kings, horses and cavaliers, Chinese figurines, allegories, myth and legend.
The Spa Feeling... the 7 Bedrooms & Bathrooms: While the home's interior common areas resemble a country manor or lodge the bedrooms and bathrooms are very modern and feel like a spa. Each of the 7 bedrooms are color coordinated in soft light and dark taupes and have resort quality organic linens, waffles-robes, towels and duvets from Coyuchi. All bedrooms come with custom walnut shelving, flat screen televisions with built-in DVD players, and Ipod compatible clock amplifiers. Each of the bathrooms are encased in seagreen limestone and installed with European Lacava counter-top sinks, custom teak shelving and hardware from the Purist Collection. And though our other bathrooms have porcelain soaking tubs, the master bathroom suite is a special and private spa experience with a 'Tea For Two' jetted tub, double headed stall shower, and separate his and her unpacking and dressing areas. Very romantic.
Figs, Family & Friends: The home is big, and at the same time inviting and cozy. The many wood burning stone fireplaces, easy chairs and sofas provide ample opportunity for social settings and peaceful areas to find some time alone. Sobre Vista has many personalities just as the outdoors call for laying out on the lawns, picking figs, plums, apples, blood-oranges, white grapefruit, lemons and peaches or reading around the pool, playing tennis or volleyball and later a family game of croquet or horseshoes. You won't be bored. You and your family and friends will truly enjoy the seamless pleasures of our Sobre Vista Estate. From relaxation and recreation to dining, reading, thinking and just being...your time here will be memorable...a peaceful and entertaining home away from home.

Sonoma, Sonoma County, Wine Country, California, USA (Near Sonoma Town Square: Wine Tasting, Golf, Hiking, Biking) -- The property is 'gated' at the entry to provide maximum privacy, security and safety at all times. Sonoma generally, and Sobre Vista especially, are very safe environments...still the gates are nice. Mountain View: Beautiful sunrises over the eastern hills rimming the Valley of the Moon can be seen from most of the property. At night, the skyscape explodes with stars and constellations. Our estate is part of the 3000 acre 1898 Speckles Estate. The original main residence compound is just 14 acres and provides wonderful walks among mature trees along with some interesting history. Charley Chaplin and Ronald Reagan played on our tennis court...just as the Speckles Estate itself was once called 'The San Simeon of the North.'
