Sonoma house description

Originally built in 1916 by the British Embassy for the Ambassador's vacation retreat, this beauty sits majestically on a knoll with spectacular views of the surrounding vineyards, Arrowhead Mountain and the Northern section of the San Francisco Bay. Updated over the passing years, the home offers all the modern conveniences but retains its original charm. The Main house is 3,500± square feet to include 2 spacious bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. A sun porch, large living room with fireplace, dining room & well-appointed kitchen are all oriented around the inviting (completely fenced) patio area complete with solar heated, in-ground pool.

A separate 2 bedroom Guest Cottage with 2 full baths, steam shower and sauna & a kitchenette is on the other side of the pool area. The Guest Cottage also offers phenomenal views of surrounding vineyards from its hilltop location. The grounds encompass 12.5± acres offering complete solitude and privacy behind a private gated entry. A (hard court) tennis court & a separate sport court with small pavilion area are included in the offering. Truly a quintessential wine country retreat property.

                      Year Purchased: 2006

                      Why the Owner Chose Sonoma:
                      Originally purchased as a primary residence due to the unique qualities and private setting.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      The property feels like it is a million miles away but is a stone's throw from Downtown Sonoma & Napa. You can choose to stock the refrigerator(s) and never leave or go wine tasting, enjoy world renowned restaurants in both Valleys, or partake in the many events held each weekend in Wine Country.
