Glen Ellen house description

Casa Hadassah is a lovely four-bedroom home with pool and breath- taking panoramic views. Sonoma Valley's beauty as described in Jack London's 'Valley of the Moon' is still apparent at Casa Hadassah.

This fully renovated home is situated 10 minutes from the town of Glen Ellen, 25 minutes from the town of Sonoma,and 50 miles from San Francisco with the benefit of feeling a million miles away.

From a friendly game of Bocce on the front lawn to lounging by the pool or in the hot tub, this house promises to entertain guests of all ages. This lovely home can be a serene escape (visitors never want to leave) or a basecamp for Wine Country and Northern California adventures.

Located on a private cul-de-sac, this two-plus acre property is surrounded by neighboring vineyards, Casa Hadassah features spacious living areas inside and out. With four bedrooms, four full baths including two master suites, this property is perfect for adults and children.

Three of the four bedrooms are located on the main level of the house. Each bedroom has a queen bed. One bedroom is a suite with a separate bedroom,work space and a large marble and stone bathroom. The luxurious shower and separate deep tub, make it an inviting space to start or end any day.The other two bedrooms are across the hall from one another and share a full bathroom.

Beyond the recreation room is a full bath complete
with a redwood paneled shower and redwood framed sink; this bathroom serves as a perfect guest bathroom and is easily accessible from the outdoor entertainment area.

The recently renovated second bedroom suite is located on the lower level of our home with a separate entrance offering privacy for that special romantic weekend.
This suite includes a separate bedroom, sitting area and beautiful bathroom (with a shower for two). The suite opens onto a slate path leading to the pool or the garden.

The house comfortably sleeps 8, including a pull-out sofa in the rec room.

The open living/dining area has high celings with multiple sliding glass doors opening out to our fabulous view and a spacious terraced decks.

With large teak tables and a gas grill, the upper deck is the perfect place to relax over a glass of wine while enjoying late afternoon light on the hills across the valley. The middle terrace of the deck holds a 6 person hot tub, ping pong table, and leads to the pool patio with plenty of chaise lounges and outdoor seating areas. The salt-water pool (not chlorine!) is accented with water features and natural rocks, creating an inviting, relaxing environment.

The fully appointed chef’s kitchen overlooking Sonoma valley opens to the large dining area (comfortably seating 12) and living area complete with a fireplace, IPOD docking station and built in speakers wired for indoors and out, and comfortable seating.

The kitchen is ready for the creations of any cook, complete with a six-burner Thermador gas stove, two Thermador ovens, two sinks, plenty of prep space and an open granite bar allowing guests to enjoy their cooks’ company.

Heading away from the living space, you pass a laundry room complete with a second fridge, second dishwasher, large laundry sink and extra dishes. From there you enter a large recreation room complete with a large screen tv, two sofas (one pull-out with a queen mattress) and both a pool and foosball table- perfect for entertaining friends and family of all ages. The TV is equipped with satellite coverage. There is also a collection of DVDs and numerous board games.

Outdoor pursuits can be enjoyed nearly year-round here- from enjoying thehot tub and swimming pool to exploring the nearby hiking and mountain biking trails, including Jack London State Park.

                            We stayed at this gorgeous house for the weekend with three other couples and we had a truly amazing time. The owners put so much thought into making the house comfortable- from the wonderful chef's kitchen to the endless activities (whirlpool, ping pong table, foosball, board games!) that we ended up spending more time at the house then in wine country! The views from this amazing house are truly breathtaking and made for beautiful sunsets to go with our outdoor meals. We will definitely come back any chance we get!

                            This house was perfect for a girls long weekend for 6 women to celebrate a birthday. Close to lots of wineries and easy to get to from SFO or OAK. The location is wonderful, up a narrow windy road out of Glen Ellen but when you get to the house you are rewarded with wonderful views. The mutli layer decks are great - enjoyed all meals out on the top deck with the killer view. Loved the salt water heated pool for chilling in the late afternoon. Inside the kitchen is very well equipped and made meal prep fun and easy. All bedrooms had comfortable beds and lots of bathrooms so for a group of women that was helpful. House also had a big TV and lots of movies, which we never used, a pool table, foosball and ping pong tables. It would be awesome for an extended family gathering. The owner was great to work with. I would definitely recommend this house. The pics do not do it justice.

                            Our group loved this property! It was beautiful, well maintained, & provided us with plenty of entertainment options. We really took advantage of the pool, outdoor area, BBQ, and game room while visiting over the weekend. I would just caution that the house is out of the way & off the beaten path, so make sure you have printed out directions so that you don't mind the limited cell phone service! We didn't mind the trek & felt the house was close enough to venture out for dinner & wine tasting nearby. Thanks again for a great weekend.

                            I just want to say what an amazing experience we had at this house!! Our group consisted of 3 couples from maui and we could not have asked for more. The house is perfect! We loved the kitchen( 2 of the men were chefs) so were able to cook amazing meals each night...... The ladies loved the pool and jacuzzi......The house was located outside of the town, so very private, but only a few minutes from wine tasting, grocery store etc.... And the owners were very helpfull with any questions or concers we had. I hope our group can make a yearly trip to this house.....Awesome House!!

                            This house surpassed all of our expectations! The view was exactly how it was described.....breathtaking! The kitchen was very well-equipped with everything being top of the line. The linens in the bedrooms and bathrooms were exceptional, too. It was just a perfect house for our four couples. Everyone had plenty of space and house getaways. The outside areas were very special with the pool, hot tub, heaters, grill and large tables with plenty of seating. I would recommend this residence to anyone. It just seemed like we were in our very own world, with our own vineyard, fields and mountains. Sitting outside on the deck was truly a special experience. The owner was very accommodating and thorough in the process and communication of renting the residence. It was a very good experience.

                            We stayed her with 8 of our closest girl friends for a wedding weekend. What a wonderful vacation home. It has every amenity you would need. Very clean and well maintained. The view from the backyard is breathtaking. Plenty of beds and bathrooms for all of us. I can not say enough great things about this place. We decided this will need to be an annual vacation for us because we had such a wonderful time! Thank you for letting us stay at your home!

                            This house was everything I was looking for! Four great bedrooms with 4 baths, top of the line kitchen, pool, hot tub and a KILLER view of the valley. We have a group of 4 couples that take yearly trips and this house quickly went to the top of our list of places we have stayed. We would have stayed over longer but the house was already booked after us. I just wish we had scheduled a day to stay at the house and enjoy everything it offers.

                            I celebrated my 40th birthday here in June with some close friends and family and the setting couldn't have been more perfect. The house is perfectly laid out for small get-togethers of family or couples, with a spacious (and extremely well-stocked) kitchen, a game room with a pool table/foosball, and 2 decks that were perfect for a barbecue and lounging by the pool. For those with young children, you can rest assurred that the pool is locked behind a tall gate and there is a lovely lawn area for the children to happily play in. The views are spectacular and the house is conveniently located less than 10 minutes from Glen Ellen. Finally, the owners were a pleasure to work with. All in all it was absolutely perfect and we left wishing we owned such an ideal wine country retreat!

                            The photos do not do this property justice. Perched perfectly above the Sonoma Valley the outdoors seem to blend into the open floor plan for perfect summer accommodation. We were a party of five, but the home could easily accommodate up to eight. This is the perfect spot for anyone looking for a private retreat with all the amenities.

                            I rented the house this past summer. This is a great house that has a fabulous location with beautiful views! It has everything you could need or want to have a relaxed and pleasant vacation. Plenty of room for several couples or a big family to be comfortable. Lot's to do, either hiking near by, taking a wine tour or just barbecuing and hanging by the pool and hot tub. Highly recommend, can't go wrong with this house. The owners are very nice people who really try to think of everything to make your stay be a memorable one.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          While only 10 minutes away from the lovely small village of Glen Ellen, when you open the door to the deck, you will feel a million miles away from all the responsibilities of your daily living. Start the day, drinking a delicious cup of coffee, watching the sun rise over the sonoma valley and in the evening gaze at the millions of stars overhead. There is lots to do: hike in Jack London State Park, go to the fabulous farmers markets, enjoy the local wineries.......or stay at the house and relax by the pool.
