Property description

Walk up the brick stairs into the living room with hardwood floors, wood-burning fireplace, gorgeous deck, and a hot tub. A lush conversation area has been designed adjacent to a formal dining area in an octagon setting, again with beautiful views. Up several stairs is the kitchen with gas range and family room with large high definition TV, CD/DVD and wireless internet via satellite.

Through the kitchen toward the front of the home is one bedroom with queen-sized bed and full bathroom with walk in shower. There is also a laundry room on this level. On the 2nd floor are master suite, sitting and writing area with queen-sized sofabed, third bedroom in tower location, and full bath with huge tile tub/shower combination.

The fourth bedroom is up a spiral iron staircase to the open loft, and is set up as a sort of meditation area. It features a double/full-sized bed, Japanese style soaking tub, water closet and sink.

The location of this home is unique in that is lies in the middle of 3 wine growing regions - Calistoga/Sonoma/Napa, Healdsburg, and the Russian River Valley. There are literally dozens of wineries within 15 minutes of the home. The Russian River is nearby as well for a canoe trip, fishing, tubing or floating, and Healdsburg is just a quick 20 minute drive north for great shopping, wine tasting and gourmet restaurants.

Mark West Retreat is located less than two miles away from the Safari West animal park.

Hot tub.
Four Bedrooms: 3 queen-size beds and 1 double/full-size bed.
