Indulge in your own private villa nestled in the heart of wine country, located perfectly on a short cut between Sonoma to Napa Valley, 2 miles from the main Sonoma road of wineries, 9 miles from Sonoma Plaza. This stylish mid-century modern home was built on a spectacular 4.5-acre setting located in the hills above the Sonoma Valley and is a Licensed Vacation Rental with the County of Sonoma. Take a dip in your private idyllic pool, styled as a lake amongst the trees. Hang out in the outdoor hot tub with views of mountains and redwoods. Spend hours playing bocce on a court next to a private vineyard. Test out that new recipe you have been dying to try in your own gourmet kitchen. Dine al fresco on your private deck, then sip cocktails on outdoor seating while the sunset casts a warm hue on your amazing view of the “Valley of the Moon.” On a cold night, cozy up by the warm fireplace. Take in a movie, or relax, on the sophisticated and modern furnishings. This property is behind a private gate in a tranquil setting that cannot be seen from the road. The home is designed to maximize outdoor living, with plenty of windows to take in the view, and doors situated to allow easy outside access from almost every room! Each bedroom has its own private exit. The home is surrounded by amenities, and tranquil settings.
While you visit, see wine country and relax. This villa is well-located and is very convenient to Sonoma and Napa valleys. The house is about two miles from the Sonoma Highway (Hwy. 12), which is not only a beautiful drive, but it is also dotted with many wineries, such as, B.R. Cohn, Valley of the Moon, St. Francis, Arrowood, Imagery, Mayo, Wellington, Kunde, Kenwood, Ledson, and many others. A short drive or taxi ride down a scenic road are the restaurants and wine tasting rooms of the towns of Glen Ellen (~2 miles), Kenwood (~5 miles) or the Sonoma Square (~9 miles). Key towns in the Napa Valley are also close by. Yountville, with the French Laundry and Bouchon restaurants, is ~11 miles away; St. Helena, with its shops and restaurants is ~14 miles away; and Highway 29, the main road through the Napa Valley is ~8 miles away.
This villa has so many amenities to entertain you, it creates a great vacation. You will be tempted to return year after year.

This property is located in the heart of wine country. The home is well-located for a tour of world renowned wineries -- two miles from a restaurant hot spot amidst the Sonoma wine region. It is situated on a scenic ridge between Napa and Sonoma, overlooking the Valley of the Moon (aka Sonoma Valley). Two miles down the road is the quaint village of Glen Ellen, and the Sonoma Highway. Glen Ellen is the site of multiple fine restaurants and a high-end gourmet grocery store. The Sonoma Highway is part of a 17-mile stretch of wineries. Just to the North of Glen Ellen is Kenwood, just five miles away from the property and home to the world class Kenwood Spa and additional restaurants. A 9-mile scenic drive south leads to the historic Sonoma Plaza with restaurants, wine tasting, supermarkets, etc. If you head down the mountain in the other direction, you will find yourself in the Napa Valley, starting at Oakville, with Rutherford, Yountville and St. Helena just a few miles beyond. San Francisco Airport is about 60 miles away. There are plenty of activities nearby. Hike the scenic Overlook Trail, horseback ride, or even rent kayaks.

Why the Owner Chose Sonoma: We live in San Francisco, but fell in love with wine country. After years looking, we finally found a home on our favorite road in Sonoma, between the Sonoma and Napa Valleys. We have always been fans of Mid-Century Modern Architecture. We fell in love with this home at first sight. We hope you love our home as much as we do!
The Unique Benefits at this House: LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION AND AMENITIES! This home has many spaces to lounge while you are home, and puts you in the heart of where you want to be when you are out -- in the center of the wineries. There are top rated restaurants just down the hill, and the elevation provide spectacular views.
