Sonoma house description

Why stay in a hotel or bed and breakfast when you can unwind at Sonoma Farmhouse Ranch, a private, luxury Sonoma vacation rental property, right in the heart of California wine country? Situated just a short two block walk from the historic Sonoma Plaza, this recently renovated mid-century classic California Ranch home provides the comforts of a cozy and private wine country retreat and getaway.

The home is situated on one half acre of land, providing visitors with charming gardens, expansive outdoor entertaining spaces and a new 15' x 35' inground salt water pool with solar heating, volleyball net and automatic cover. A separate 4 person hot tub is provided for a $35 hot tub cleaning fee.

The renovated ranch-styled home offers an open great room entertainment area with living, dining, kitchen island and cook area with large flat screen tv. The home can accommodate up to 4 persons and offers two master bedrooms with generous sized en-suite bathrooms, complete with shower/tub combo, vanity and toilet area. A separate laundry room is available upon request for an additional $25.00 fee.

Just a quick walk to shops, museums, historic sites and world-class restaurants, you can spend each day at your own pace, art and antique shopping, enjoying a relaxing massage at one of the local spas, eating superb local foods and wines from one of our local restaurants or town farmer's market, and all within a short 2 block walk from this unique property.

Centrally located in the heart of the California wine country and right off Highway 12, Sonoma Farmhouse Ranch is within easy reach of the Sonoma Valley, Napa Valley, the vineyards of Santa Rosa, Healdsburg, and the Russian River. We are also located within less than a one hour's drive from the bustling night life and excitement of San Francisco. Our Ranch house can be your home base for a fantastic, relaxed and authentic California wine country experience.

              About the owner: Bob McDonald is part owner and property manager for Sonoma Farmhouse which includes Sonoma Farmhouse Town in Sonoma, Sonoma Farmhouse Country in Kenwood, and now the newly renovated Sonoma Farmhouse Ranch house in Sonoma. Bob has been managing Sonoma Farmhouse since 2004. Bob's background and education is in Urban Planning and Landscape Design. He has a local landscape design business, and has professionally landscaped and lovingly restored each of the Sonoma Farmhouse properties, including the Ranch home. Bob is active in Sonoma, volunteering for the City of Sonoma Design Review Commission, and is a member of the Sonoma Chamber of Commerce, the Sonoma Historic Society and the Sonoma Valley Visitor's Bureau. Bob makes sure that every property detail is taken care for your visit at Sonoma Farmhouse Ranch, including the maintenance and production of Sonoma Farmhouse brand wines.

              Why the Owner Chose Sonoma:
              Bob is originally from San Francisco, but can remember visiting family and friends in Sonoma as a child. Years later these wonderful times and impressions brought Bob back to live, work and run businesses in Sonoma.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Sonoma Farmhouse Ranch is uniquely located in the historic district of Sonoma and within a short walk to the Sonoma Plaza. Very few rentals can boast the expansiveness of open space, privacy and features including a pool within a short walking distance to town.
