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 this house (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 guests who will appreciate a truly special place.

Why the Owner Chose Sonoma:
Unbeatable location: We are near all the attractions and amenities Sonoma has to offer - world class wineries, luxury spas, golf courses, shopping, historic downtown, hiking trails in natural settings and through vineyards, world-class restaurants and local eateries, farmers markets and local fruit stand, museums and art galleries. Spacious (1614 sqft): the master bedroom, the tatami room, and the space of the family room and adjacent open kitchen are all big, make it perfect for families and friends. The cathedral ceiling makes the space spacious in three dimensions. Beautiful: the front, side, and backyard have all sort of flowers and plants; the unique and tranquil tatami room provides a romantic atmosphere; 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. Minutes away from our favorite wineries - Imagery, Little Family Winery, Chateau St Jean, BR Cohn, Ty Caton Vineyards, Muscardini Cellars, and Cline Cellar. 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. Ample parking. Kid friendly: The house has many kid's stuff and it's very safe for kids - all tall furniture is fixed to wall. The house is fully stocked (especially the kitchen): we've put everything in place for guests to be completely at home.
