Windsor house description

Passing through a gated entrance and vineyards brings you to this European inspired wine country retreat. The elegant French Country estate set on approximately 6 acres of manicured grounds includes private 5 acre lake, pool, and spa. There is a small aluminum fishing boat to use for your fishing pleasure (bass and trout for catch and release).

The 4500+ sq. ft. French Country estate has vaulted ceilings, 4 fireplaces, and features 3 beautifully appointed rooms with private baths. There is a formal living room/dining room, large gourmet kitchen which opens to the family room. For entertainment it has a billiard room with built-in bar; and gorgeous sun room which boast beautiful daylight.


Should you choose to go wine tasting you will be amidst the finest wine country regions such as Napa, Sonoma, Healdsburg, Alexander Valley and Russian River. To tantalize your taste buds there are numerous highly-acclaimed restaurants of world-class cuisine just minutes away.

If you are more of the active type there is canoeing or kayaking on the beautiful Russian River, walking along the beach at Bodega Bay, golfing at the many nearby golf courses, or even taking in the sights in a hot air balloon. Want to stay in shape? You are within walking distance to an Equestrian Park where you can either go horseback riding, walking/jogging, hiking or bicycling on the numerous well-maintained trails.

Interested in the theater? There is the Well Fargo Center for the Arts, Santa Rosa, for world-class performances in music, dance, theater and, comedy, only fifteen minutes away.
