Santa Rosa chateau / country house description
Located in the rolling hills between Santa Rosa, Petaluma and Glen Ellen, this contemporary renovated 1909 ranch house is a peaceful retreat, only an hour drive from San Francisco. Inside the casual, elegant home there is an open living area with a country kitchen and wood burning stove as well as formal living room and dining room with a fire place. The recent contemporary addition houses the private, spatious master bedroom with its high open beamed ceiling and is surrounded by spectacular views from the coastal range to the vast Sonoma hills. There are four bedrooms in the entire house that sleep 10 people.
The living area opens up to a wrap around porch that provides additional protected sitting and dining areas. The house is surrounded by open gardens that lead into pastures
and onto our classic big red barn. The artist designed swimming pool, Jacuzzi and pergola shade structure provide a wonderful recreational environment for kids and adults.
With such a remote feel, it’s great to be only minutes away from highly acclaimed restaurants, movie theatres, shopping and all the other amenities found in Santa Rosa, Glen Ellen and Petaluma. There is easy access (30-40 minutes) to world renown wineries in the Napa Valley, resort towns of Sonoma and Healdsburg, the health spas in Calistoga, the Russian River, Bodega Bay, Point Reyes and the beautiful beaches on the Pacific Ocean.
The home has been published in several magazines and featured in Sunset.
This is not a party house. We do not allow events or parties of any kind.

ReviewsWrite a review
I brought my family here for a reunion, Three adult couples and a possee of kids hanging out and relaxing in a place I wish I could live year round. The kids played in the barn, watched the deer roll by even spotted a bob-cat. Adults swam, relaxed in the Jacuzzi. I have never slept past 5:45 in my life....until I got here....and then 8AM was eye opening....with great smells and sounds from an ample kitchen, meals inside and out.....Really a dream destination. Great value for the size and scale of what it can accommodate. The owners are very gracious and we even found a homemade apricot galette waiting for us. This is the land of pastoral hikes, books by the pool, DVDs, Everyone was entertained and make for a perfect sense of family. The architecture is spectacular and everything so well done. We immediately booked for a subsequent visit. I have stayed all over the planet with a eye to alluring my kids and their families to join us.....no resort can top this in a feeling of warmth and intimacy. Top marks!
