Santa Rosa house description

This is a lovely hideaway only an hour north of San Francisco. Situated 15 minutes away from Santa Rosa, it is in a quiet, private, rural setting. Three acres of California's rolling hills with natural grasses, old oaks, lush gardens, and your own vineyard give you the privacy to enjoy Sonoma County living at its best.

The house is casual and warm, with sets of French doors opening from almost every room onto flagstone patios, decks, lawn, and gardens. A private solar heated pool with an in-ground spa big enough for eight is just outside the master bedroom. It’s the place to watch the stars and the distant lights at night and great for just warming up after a cold dip in the pool. A waterfall at the edge of the pool has rocks you can sit on for sun and is also a good place to jump into the water.

The Great room houses the living room with fireplace, dining area, and gourmet kitchen with a Viking range, a Sub Zero refrigerator and Miele dishwasher. There are exposed beams and the ceiling reaches 12 feet high. Just outside the kitchen door is a large ground-level deck with charcoal grill, an herb garden and dining table and chairs.

Market umbrellas and six lounges are available around the pool for relaxing in the sun. The flagstone terrace, under an old Redwood tree and some Japanese Maples and Rhododendrons, also has plenty of comfortable outdoor seating.

The three bedrooms in the house have very high ceilings and are brightly furnished with an eclectic French farmhouse feel. Each is distinct. One, with a queen bed, has a double set of French doors opening onto a deck. The second is small and cozy with a skylight and a double bed. A bathroom with toilet, sink and shower is located between these bedrooms and the Great room.

The master bedroom is a very spacious room with views from the bed out the French doors and all the windows. Just outside the door is the pool and spa. The master bath has a shower with room for two and a tub with a view. Big windows and a door out to a back deck make it bright and open.

The fourth bedroom is for the more adventurous in the group. It's a special, more rustic hideaway up a long stairway between rows of vines, then up some stone steps and paths even higher to the Quinta. Here, a large flat area on the hillside above the valley has been civilized with a romantic white fabric tent-cabin and an expansive patio. It's a bit of a hike to get there (though there is a gravel road you can drive up).

A queen-size bed, tables, chairs, lamps, and a CD player make it something like sleeping outdoors but with few of disadvantages. Antique windows look out over a view of the Sonoma Plain.

At night, you see the lights of towns and suburbs in the distance. On most days, you can see mountains on the other side of the valley and the coastal sky beyond. The patio has tables, chairs, lounges, and a small outdoor fireplace. It makes an ideal spot for gathering to catch the late afternoon rays or to watch the sunset--or the stars. On the other side of the patio, is a double hammock available for snoozing in the shade of a huge old oak tree.

A winding path leads to a charming, indoor/outdoor bathhouse (cold water only). A colorful Mexican sink is sheltered from any rain by a tin roof, The toilet is a modern composting toilet that is odor free.

The location has surprisingly easy access to Highway 101. There are many wineries in the area. The Russian River Area, Petaluma, Santa Rosa, Sonoma and Healdsburg are close and the Sonoma coast is within an hour. The Napa Valley is about 45 minutes away. Best of all, most of this travel is over beautiful back roads.
