Kenwood estate description
One of the few vacation rental properties within walking distance to so many wineries! Hacienda Sonoma was custom built in 2008 -- professionally designed and beautifully decorated, every detail has been thoughtfully considered with wonderful weekends in mind. Entertaining is easy here, and the location is perfect -- walk to seven wineries, (and over 50 wineries within 10 miles), walk to a nice dinner, and no one has to be the 'D.D.' on vacation. If you're a 'foodie,' this house was designed for you! Every possible amenity is available for entertaining in style, including a wood-fired pizza oven!
The Hacienda offers a huge professionally-equipped gourmet kitchen (2 dishwashers!), luxurious pillow-top mattresses, travertine bathrooms with lots of elbow space, two fireplaces, bocce court, pool table and bar, plasma TV, and whole-house sound system. Our gardens are filled with flowers (plus a lavender field behind the house - 540 French lavender plants!), a zinfandel vineyard, and herb garden. Gorgeous outdoor living / dining / and cooking areas are lit by chandeliers.
A thousand activities close by!: Sonoma Valley is full of fun things to do. Whether you're into birdwatching or skydiving, there's something fun for you in our area. There is a full listing of area golf courses, event calendars, and ideas for planning your vacation on our website at: http://www.haciendasonoma.com/index_files/activities.htm.
Girls' weekends are great at Hacienda Sonoma! We can arrange for a private chef and/or massage therapists on site, and there is also one of the World's top spas (as rated by Conde Nast magazine) just a couple of minutes down the road, with a gorgeous adults-only pool for your use. The best part about our location in Wine Country? No one has to be the driver. There is a full weekend of wine-tasting within a 5-block radius of our property. If you'd like to sample some of the more than 50 wineries within a 10-mile radius, let us recommend a great limo service to take you wine-tasting in style!
A foodie/wine-lover's paradise: Sonoma Valley has been rated as one of the top destinations in the world for food and wine, and Hacienda Sonoma was designed to be the perfect environment for enjoying them. Our kitchen is huge, and extremely well equipped. When have you rented a vacation home that came with an Italian wood-fired pizza oven, a KitchenAid stand mixer, an emulsion blender, two dishwashers, two coffee pots, built-in grill, electric wine bottle opener, and matching place settings for 20? We love to cook and entertain, and we love to do it in style. Visit the local farmers' markets and be inspired, or, hire our chef to come and cook for a truly memorable occasion.
Fun is everywhere at Hacienda Sonoma! Our bocce court, pool table, whole-house sound system, plasma T.V., upstairs bar, Blu-Ray DVD player, DVR, DirecTV Satellite system, VCR, puzzles, board games, WiFi, and even the redwood play structure in the back yard, means that fun is had by everyone in the group.

Year Purchased: 2007
About the owner: I'm a grapegrower, winemaker, mom of two kids, and executive recruiter. My husband, Rick, and I are wine lovers and enjoy 'getting away from it all' but not so much that we have to get in the car and drive a long way to do something fun. We can walk to many of the wineries in our area, some great restaurants, a neighborhood market, and some cute shops. We can walk down the street to live music, food pairings, or barrel tastings on most weekends, and are surrounded by the friendliest people. We love Sonoma Valley!
Why the Owner Chose Kenwood:
We looked for 5 years for the perfect spot to build a custom home. At first, we looked at mountaintop properties with expansive views, but we quickly realized the drive up a winding narrow road would defeat the purpose of buying in Wine Country. We wanted to be near everything fun, enjoy a short stroll to dinner or lunch, or even walk to a wine and food pairing. And yet, we didn't want the traffic and noise of being downtown, and we wanted the gorgeous views of rolling vineyards. Kenwood is our perfect spot! Our friends can visit and no one has to be the 'D.D.' There is a World-Class spa about two minutes down the street, great restaurants, fabulous wineries, golf, and a small-town feel to our area.
The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
We are one of the few vacation rental properties so close to the many gorgeous vineyards in our area. You can walk just 2-4 blocks for wine tasting at 7 wineries. One of them offers a 7-course gourmet food pairing for just $25! It's food and wine heaven in our neighborhood. The house is custom-built with lots of fun amenities like a bocce court, pool table, zinfandel vineyard, giant gourmet kitchen, lavender field, two fireplaces, soaking tubs, and more. We gave a lot of thought to every detail (we had 5 years to think about it!), and the house was designed with entertaining in mind.
