This beautiful home sits on an acre with over 300 feet of rare Sonoma Creek frontage in Kenwood. We've just added a new Hot Spring® hot tub to enjoy the creek more in winter as it rises several feet when it rains. The home sits behind a stone wall with a gated circular driveway. There's a 16' x 33' solar heated saline pool with a child safe automatic cover that's 80+ degrees from April through October 1 (possibly later depending on weather). Surrounding the pool and house is 2250 sq ft of Brazilian Ipe wood decking and a 12' x 12' resort cabana with Pottery Barn seating. Other pool furniture includes a double wide lounge, six single chaise lounges with cushions and terry covers and a couple 9' square market umbrellas. There's a large outdoor dining table that seats 8 and a 36'' top of the line KitchenAid stainless gas grill. Yamaha outdoor speakers, an ipod dock and Sony 400 CD changer supply the music for swimming and dining.
There are two king bedroom suites with private bathrooms and a third bedroom with a pillow-top queen bed and separate bathroom with a 2 person tub w/shower. Both suites feature W Hotel pillow-top mattresses, Ralph Lauren duvets & linens. The master bath has a TV, steam shower (very nice for a winter rental) and 2 person WetStyle soaking tub overlooking the creek.
The main floors are wide white washed oak and all baths are light Italian limestone. The living room and Master bedroom have 46'' LCD TV's and the other two bedrooms have 42'' and 32'' LCD TV's, all with DVD players. The living room has a large cast concrete wood burning fireplace and there's a gas fireplace in the master bedroom. For keeping cool in summer all the rooms have ceiling fans and air conditioning. The radient floor heat keeps the house toasty warm in winter while you watch the creek rush by just a few feet from the deck.
Top of the line stainless KitchenAid chef's kitchen with concrete counters, island sink and 6 burner Aga Legacy 43' gas range. Plenty of space in the 42' built in counter depth fridge and separate under-counter wine fridge. Dine at the reclaimed farmhouse dining table that seats 8. There's also a small creekside petanque court and a wrap-around gated driveway for kids to play and ride bikes safely. Eat anything from the organic garden - tomatos, lettuces, cilantro, zucchini, basil, beets, parsley, peas etc. There's a wonderful 5500 sq ft (roughly 1/4 of a football field) creekside lawn that's great for everyone to play sports.
The house is within walking distance from some of the best wineries in the valley and just up our road is Sugarloaf Ridge State Park for horseback riding and great hiking. This house is also a perfect retreat for the bride/groom party that wants to escape the wedding chaos. Sonoma Town Square is 15 minutes south on Hwy 12 and Santa Rosa is 10 minutes north. We're about an hour and 15 minutes from San Francisco. You can also fly into Santa Rosa (Charles Schultz) Airport just 25 minutes away on Alaskan/Horizon nonstop from LAX, Las Vegas and Seattle and rent a car. Please let us know if you need catering, a private chef or spa information. Our home is well appointed for private entertaining but we absolutely cannot accommodate parities of any kind due to local zoning laws.
