Property description

From the first moment you drive through the gate and start down the driveway, you realize you have entered your own private retreat…the perfect home away from home!

O’Donnell Lane is the subtle blend of secluded privacy with very close proximity to the unique restaurants ('restaurant row') and shopping in and around Glen Ellen and Sonoma Wine Country.

The property consists of a newly renovated, warm and inviting four bedroom, three and one-half bath house that is situated on one+ acres of well-maintained lawns and mature olive, oak and bay trees. The back lawn is nestled up against the Sonoma creek which flows all year.

The large, well-appointed Viking gourmet kitchen, complete with a six-burner, two-oven Viking range and natural granite counter tops, begs for preparing gourmet meals and entertaining for discerning guests. There are two dining tables which can seat between 4-8 people each.

The four bedrooms consist of two California king beds (downstairs Master Bedroom and upstairs Suite) and two queen beds (downstairs Poolside Guest Bedroom and downstairs Den Bedroom with a new Memory Foam sofa pullout). All the beds have new, over-sized mattresses with cozy pad tops and 600 thread-count linens.

The furniture throughout the house is an eclectic mix of 19-20th century antiques and modern appointments.

The options for how you choose to enjoy the house run the gamut…

Plug in your iPod to the stereo, select your favorite playlist, and lounge in the den that overlooks the bubbling creek below (or any room for that matter as our high-end surround-sound stereo system plays throughout the house as well as outside by the pool). Better yet, soak in the warm Sonoma sun while lying on a chaise next to the heated saline pool. Unplugged, pure and serene…these are the natural themes of O’Donnell Lane.

The property and house are secluded, yet only five minutes from the award-winning wineries of Sonoma Valley. You are only 15-20 minutes from Sonoma Plaza, minutes to a few miles from the best Sonoma wineries and thirty minutes to Napa valley. And being in the heart of Glen Ellen Village, you are just a stroll down the lane to your pick of the best culinary choices Glen Ellen has to offer.
