Sonoma house description

Sprawling Oak is located in the wine country - Sonoma, California, 45 minutes from San Francisco, 15 miles to Napa Valley. The house is a peaceful, private home just minutes from the historic Sonoma Plaza, and in the heart of the hot spring/spa area. (The Sonoma Mission Inn's world famous spa is a short 5-minute walk away.) Two dozen world-class wineries are within 10 miles. The house is in a quiet neighborhood, with easy access to highway 12, groceries, fruit stands and numerous eateries.

The house has two spacious traditional bedrooms, one big tatami room where you can entertain and sleep, a big family/dinning room with open kitchen for entertaining and relaxing with family and friends. The private backyard and open side yard are lovely spots for a quiet outdoor meal or an afternoon lounging. There are lemon trees in the front yard and roses in the backyard.

Hi-speed Wi-Fi, washer / Drier, fireplace, lots of parking, cable and a big screen TV, kids stuff, a full (and fully equipped) kitchen, a folder of local info, and super comfortable sofa-bed (in addition to the king and queen sized beds in the bedrooms, and tatami pads in the tatami room) make this a perfect place for groups and extended families.

Things to do in Valley of the Moon: wine tasting, sight seeing, shopping in the beautiful Sonoma Plaza, hot air ballooning, biking, eating at world class restaurants or local taquerias, enjoying spas, or relaxing in the sunny weather.

The house is ideal for two couples, a family with parents/in-laws, or groups. Perfect for weekend getaways or longer stays in wine country. 6 people can stay comfortably.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2013

                          About the owner: We are a family with small children who fell in love with the spirit of wine country. We found that 'Sprawling Oak' (with the protection one huge and magical tree gives the house) perfectly captures the relaxation, openness and energy that make Sonoma so unique. We are excited to share this with renters who will appreciate a truly special place.

                          Why the Owner Chose Sonoma:
                          Spacious: the master bedroom, the tatami room, and the space of the family room and adjacent open kitchen are all big, make it perfect for gathering. The cathedral ceiling makes the space spacious in three dimensions. Beautiful: the front, side, and backyard have all sort of flowers and plants; the whole glass wall lets the morning sunlight in, makes the dinning room and the kitchen enchanted.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          Close to everything, and yet quiet and relaxed. Tatami room is beautiful and is full of smell of the tatami grass. Local fruit stand down the road - they sell everything, all local stuff. Local guide is provided. Up to 4 cars off street parking. The house is fully stocked: we've put everything in place for guests to be completely at home at Sprawling Oak.
