Sonoma house description
Farmhouse elegance in downtown Glen Ellen, CA. This bright and airy, custom-built, 4 bedroom and 3 bathroom home with a hot tub is a perfect place for a family gathering or a tranquil get-away in the heart of wine country.
Dovetail Farm is a two-story, open-concept house enhanced with comfortably luxurious furnishings, high-end amenities, clerestory windows and magnificent light throughout.
The main floor houses the large gourmet kitchen, an expansive dining area, a gracious entry, large great room, study with twin trundle beds, and a full bath with tub.
The kitchen offers a Viking gas range, double ovens, granite countertops and a generous center island – a wonderful place to display hors d'oeuvres, prepare an elegant meal or sip wine while making a casual dinner.
A lofty, two-story red brick hearth & fireplace anchor the large great room and also warm the upper floor's open sitting area. This central living area, adjacent to the dining room, is an inviting lounge space for intimate cocktail parties, family game nights, watching the big game on the flat-screen t.v., or to simply enjoy a romantic glass of wine by the roaring fire. Winter or summer, it is an inviting, tranquil, cozy space with an expansive feel.
The quaint private study has lovely French doors that open on to a private patio and can accommodate two people on custom-made twin trundle beds. As in the rest of the house, all of the pillow-top mattresses are brand new and the linens are high-end, exquisite cotton and delightful to sleep on.
Upstairs, decorated with a custom, hand-forged iron railing, you’ll find an open loft with desk and sitting area as well as the master suite, two bedrooms and a full bath.
The Master Suite has a queen bed and a lovely balcony overlooking the back garden. The bathroom, decorated with tumbled marble, has a steam shower.
The second bedroom has a queen bed and shares a large hall bath with Jacuzzi tub and stand-alone tiled shower with the third bedroom in which there are twin beds that can be made into a king upon request.
The home is landscaped with a walled private garden tucked away from the street - a lovely quiet place to read a book in the dappled sun light. A wrap-around deck outside the kitchen faces the back garden, surrounded by pear and crape myrtle trees, lavender, wild flowers and grasses along with a welcoming lawn perfect for a picnic or children to run freel

Fabulous house, beautiful setting
Fabulous house, beautiful setting
My mother, her brother, myself and my three cousins gathered for a small reunion at this house over Memorial Day. We couldn't have been happier. It was absolutely perfect. The house is beautifully furnished with comfy beds and lots of seating areas - and the gardens are lovely. Glen Ellen feels as if it is a magical little setting. We visited wineries, went to the Hog Island Oyster Company in Bolinas, went hiking in the two parks, both within five minutes from the house and cooked a few nights in the wonderful kitchen with a few friends we had invited from San Francisco. We also walked to the Fig Cafe for dinner one night and we found we could easily walk to the Glen Ellen market which had everything we needed. Imagery winery is just up the road as is Chataeu St. Jean and majority of the wineries. I have stayed in Sonoma before, but this was definitely more to my liking. We look forward to returning again. Oh yes, and the 3 girl cousins spent a lovely morning at the Sonoma Mission Inn which is about 10 minutes away.

Beautiful Property and fabulous kitchen
Beautiful Property and fabulous kitchen
My fiance and I rented this property for three days in February with several friends. We wanted to do something special since he works in Germany and was visiting for several weeks. He loves to cook so he walked into the house and immediately exclaimed "this is my dream kitchen". From there on things only got better. The house is furnished with lovely sheets and lovely furnishings. It's in a lovely setting close to town. We so enjoyed being in Glen Ellen, such a charming community. We hope to go back next year. By then the hot tub will be in.-

About: I'm a highly awarded Creative Director at a NY advertising agency. I've restored several houses and my specialty is set design. I've traveled extensively and have always had a particular love for innovative architecture and beautiful design in unique settings. I have had homes in the Hamptons, Connecticut and upstate NY. This house is my first venture in California. It has a lot of my personal acquisitions from years of travel and the art that I've collected while living in New York. This house was designed by a landscape architect. You can feel it in the garden spaces and in his attention to detail in the house. The bannisters were hand forged by a blacksmith for the house and give a rustic, yet elegant feel to the house. It is the perfect combination a sophisticated open space plan found in many NY City lofts combined with a lovely rural setting. It's a wonderful place to spend time with my family and we all find it hard to leave Glen Ellen every time we visit.
There are many beautiful places in the world, but I am always drawn back to the light and smells of the wine country. I have worked in New Zealand, Australia, Canada, South America and Europe and I always find myself comparing those countries and their cities to the parts of California that I love. I bought a house in this area because I grew up nearby. Glen Ellen still has a rural charm. The oak trees are old and the landscape is rough in parts and groomed in others. I love walking into town and people recognizing you and knowing your coffee order. It's peaceful, quiet, but close to everything. I eventually plan on moving back, but in the meantime I'd love that other people enjoy the space that I've created. When I'm not here I spend time with my family ,and our dog Bearto, in New York City, Maine and upstate New York.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This property sits in it's own little ecosystem. It is cooler than the valley because it backs up to the mountains. Waking up to the light and the smells that fill the master bedroom on a sunny morning and the sounds of the birds in the garden is magical. When it's chilly, the fireplace goes on, and with a freshly brewed pot of coffee we settle in with the New York Times. During the spring and summer, the teak tables and chairs outside provide a perfect place to start the day. For us, the kitchen is a dream kitchen. It's gorgeous and has everything we need to cook, bake and entertain. At night sitting on the front porch with a glass of wine many friends say 'it doesn't get much better than this'. The gardens are lovely and my nieces and nephews play catch on the front lawn, or everyone can find their own space since the house is a wonderful 2600 ft. open concept plan. Some of the family make trips to the beaches less than an hour away while others love exploring the exceptional wineries only minutes away. And when no one feels like driving there are two tasting rooms right up the street. There are movies nearby, the Sonoma Mission Inn and the Kenwood Inn and Spa are both only a few miles away. And two of my favorite restaurants in the area, 'The Fig Cafe' and 'Glen Ellen Star' are right up the street.
