Santa Rosa house description

This one acre property sits atop Taylor Mountain, 15 minutes southeast of downtown Santa Rosa; a whole world away from the hustle and bustle. This very private home is clustered within a small community of houses that are surrounded by ranches and vineyards affording breathtaking views high above most of the winter fog and cold temperatures of the Santa Rosa Plain. Bennett Valley, Kenwood and Glen Ellen are 20 minutes away and the historic town of Sonoma, Russian River Valley, Healdsburg and the Bodega Coast are 40 minute drives. The excitement of downtown San Francisco is just an hour away.

This classic ranch style home has high celings and an open floorplan with a chef's kitchen. The living/dining/family room opens to the large covered terrace, perfect for year-round alfresco dining. A cozy sitting area/library with 100's of varied titles to browse is nestled around a wood burning fireplace. The Master bedroom has bathroom en-suite and affords a wake up view of the valley below. The second bedroom has an en-suite bath with tub. Both bedrooms have queen beds and cable TV.

The gardens have been designed by the landscape architect owner and have been featured in Sunset Magazine/Western Garden Book, Better Homes and Gardens and other publications. Many garden rooms with different themes such as the English Mixed Border, the Sunset Perennial Hill, the Vegetable Terraces, the Lookout Point, The Maple Dell, have many different places to sit matching any particular mood. There are two water features and a pond full of colorful fish. (Please see the separate link to the Picassa Web Album for copious garden photos). The swimming pool shares the BBQ terrace with a nearby outdoor shower can be used after sundown under a star filled or even rainy sky.

Wildlife watching abounds, especially with the morning birds queueing up to be first in the feeder. Bluejays wait to be treated to peanuts and clumsy quail, sometimes 20 at a time jump up on the terrace wall in search of breakfast. Hawks, Geese, Woodpeckers and hungry Herons fly overhead and owls serenade at night. Deer, fenced out of the gardens, browse below and and an occasional fox can be seen at sundown along with turkeys roosting in the oaks.

Wineries, Armstrong Woods, Annadale State Park, the Prince Memorial Bike Trail along Santa Rosa Creek, Sugarloaf State Park, the Valley of the Moon, Lake Sonoma, Historic Petaluma, the Charles Shultz Museum are local attractions that are closeby. Downtown Santa Rosa with Historic Railroad Square is home to numerous restaurants, bookshops, antique shops, museums and theaters.


Keywords: Chef's kitchen, open floor plan, high ceilings, bright sunny rooms, resort style private gardens, expansive southwest views.
