Sonoma house description

The Sonoma Hideaway is a wine country gem that combines indoor outdoor living amongst the vines with the privacy of a 2 acre lot - Perfect for families! The Master Bedroom, 2 guest bedrooms (one with trundle bed), 1 kids bedroom (2 beds and trundle bed) sleep a total of 10 people (8 adults and two kids) in comfort, while the open layout provides a sense of privacy. Chef's kitchen and outdoor grill make cooking a delight, and the airy eat in dining room or outdoor banquet table is the ultimate in wine country living.

The very private backyard overlooks vineyards to the east, and silver dollar ecalyptus stretch across the north property line. The garden is filled with California native wildflowers, cyprus, and a selection of white and red roses. The pool and patio feature 6 chaises and 3 umbrellas, while the large oak provides shade and privacy.

Every window opens out into gardens, live oaks, or pinot noir grapes, making the Sonoma Hideaway feel like you are nestled away amongst the vines.

The pool and vineyard make it easy to keep the kids occupied, while you take in a spa or a trip to Sonoma or nearby wineries. Only 50 minutes from San Francisco, 10 minutes from Sonoma downtown and great wineries like Beaulieu and Buena Vista, with parks and hikes nearby.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2007

                  About the owner: Software person, avid traveler, sometime musician

                  Why the Owner Chose Sonoma:
                  This property was our weekend and summer home when we lived in San Francisco. Since it's less than 1 hour from the city, it's very convenient. But it feels like you are way out in the country, even though you are 10 minutes from starbucks and wholefoods

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The long gravel drive, the small pinot noir vineyard, and the beautiful landscaping make the property's two acres feel like ten acres. The hills above Sonoma frame the northern end of the property, rising above the silver dollar eucalyptus. You can relax, let the kids swim in the pool, or head out to Sonoma for wine and fine food.
