Healdsburg house description

Nestled on 5+ acres at the end of a secluded country lane and shaded by a canopy of majestic oaks, Oak Leaf Retreat is a stunning, 3300 sq. ft., 2-story, luxury 3 bedroom, 3.5 bath custom home with a wrap around porch, abundant spectacular features, and gorgeous amenities. This elegant country Retreat offers the best of the two worlds of country and town, where you can enjoy the peace and serenity of a pastoral and vineyard setting that is only a 10 minute drive to the town square of charming and historic Healdsburg, the ‘crown jewel’ of Sonoma County’s Wine Country.

Oak Leaf Retreat is located next to Nicole's Vineyard of J Winery and is within a 20 minute drive of over 100 wineries in the Dry Creek Valley, Alexander Valley and Russian River Valley appellations. Naturally, there are dozens of fine restaurants within 15 minutes of Oak Leaf Retreat.

This special home in the ‘Tuscany’ of Northern California, has a fabulous gourmet kitchen, the heart of this very special retreat. The main level entry hall leads you to the expansive well-equipped kitchen, on your left, which opens to the dining and living areas, all with high ceilings, custom lighting, abundant windows and doors opening to the 3-sided porch and back patio, and the well designed flowing floor plan makes for nearly effortless transitions from room to room. With everything your ‘chef’ will want or need, this kitchen is truly heavenly and includes abundant custom lighting, marvelous maple cabinets, a large island with a professional Fisher&Paykal 5-burner gas cook top and prep sink, new appliances including a built-in oven, stainless steel Maytag fridge-over-freezer, dishwasher, Magic Chef microwave, and a large stainless steel sink

The lovely dining area conveniently awaits service of your culinary delights, just adjacent to the kitchen, with a rustic dining table, 6 luxurious leather high backed chairs and windows all around to let the splendor of nature ‘join’ you as you enjoy sipping, supping, and good conversation. From the kitchen/dining area, you can ‘flow’ into the large living and entertaining room with plenty of comfy seating for all including a large sectional sofa, 2 leather chairs, and an ottoman. The spacious living room’s audio/visual entertainment is provided by a Phillip’s 30” widescreen HD TV.

The Retreat’s main level is completed with 2 lovely bedrooms with full baths, a guest bathroom and a convenient laundry room. Situated to the left and right of the entry, the bedroom suites are on opposite sides allowing for maximum privacy. The bedroom suite on the left has a comfy queen bed, a full glass door to the side porch, and a private en-suite bath is well-appointed with a shower over tub and pedestal sink. You can use the available, trusty iMac computer. Also, WiFi delivers high-speed internet connection that reaches throughout the Retreat and outdoors more than 200 feet.

On the right front side of the home, ‘lives’ the second bedroom suite also with queen bed, peaceful décor, ceiling to floor silk drapes for the window, and full glass door, leading to the back deck and spa. There is also a wall-mounted 32' flat screen TV. A well appointed second en-suite bathroom features a huge walk-in, fully tiled shower with 2 showering stations with wands and a teak ‘in shower’ bench. Additionally, there is a private water closet, vanity, small dresser, and mirrored wall which completes this roomy and efficient ‘getting ready’ station. Finally, on the main level you'll find an additional half bath and an laundry with large washer and dryer, sink, wine fridge, and another full glass door to the side porch.

But wait! Climb the staircase to the upper level of this very special home to the expansive 1400+ sq. ft. multi-use Great Room suite. A private family retreat unto itself, this beautiful space creates a relaxing environment full of amenities and opportunities for play, watching TV or a movie, or a rejuvenating, restful sleep. Enter the upstairs expansive living entertainment area with sofa and loveseat and a 52” Panasonic HD widescreen TV with DVD player and an iHome Speaker/Charger System for you iPad, iPhone or iPod.

This very special haven’s alcoves include a bedroom ensemble with king bed and armoire, a queen bed, two single beds, a play area with game table & dart board, a desk/work station, and a wet bar with a small fridge. Spa inspired, the suite's bathroom is grand, and features a private bath and shower room that includes a jetted Jacuzzi soaking tub with wand and a large free standing shower with wand. Also, adjoining is a private water closet, and a private vanity with mirrored wall.

Considering the splendor of it all and spectacular and abundant amenities and features of this magnificent Retreat, you may never want to leave and may have to be ‘pried’ out to enjoy the beauty of Mother Nature and the many adventures to be enjoyed in Healdsburg, Windsor and the surrounding areas. The outdoor features of the Retreat include a 3-sided wrap-around porch, back deck with 2 tables and chairs for 10, another round table with umbrella and 4 chairs, two lounge chairs, a new high-end 7-person Belize 1500 hydrotherapy spa, a new gas grill for your BBQing pleasure, the shaded canopy of 100 year old oaks, over an acre of lawn, and the glorious sunsets over Nicole’s vineyard. During the early morning hours of the ballooning season, you may also enjoy balloons overhead and, if you listen carefully, you'll hear distant conversations from above.

              Year Purchased: 2003

              About: My wife and I built our home in late 2003. After living in our dream home for 6 years we decided to return to the East Bay to be near (our two daughters and) our four granddaughters, all under the age of 5. We did not want to sell our home so we decided to provide our home as a vacation rental. This way we can return whenever the home is not occupied and show our granddaughters their goat and sheep friends on the neighboring property and help them indentify the birds (nearly 50 different birds appear throughout the year). We intend to constantly upgrade our home with the amenities that make for a relaxing and memorable retreat or vacation. We encourage feedback from our guests so we can improve the 'wine country' experience for future guests. Thank you for considering our home for your 'retreat.' Kae and Andrew McGuire Owners

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Our home is at the end of a country lane and is peaceful and quiet.
