Property description

'THE PICTURES ON THE SITE DON'T DO THIS HOUSE JUSTICE... THE HOUSE IS ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS.' Guest Review, January, 2015

TREAT yourself and friends to this magnificent Mountain Retreat, located in the exclusive 'Diamond A' Estates community on Sonoma Mountain, just minutes west of the Plaza. Our vacation home is situated in a secluded area on 2+ acres, with no other houses in sight, right at the end of a private country road. We are located right in the heart of Wine Country, less than a 10-minute drive to both the Sonoma Plaza and Glen Ellen. This is an exclusive, premium custom-built home that offers you an amazing space in a serene and unique setting, all Sonoma style!

We are a NEWLY built, craftsman-era home with over 2700 feet of vaulted wood ceilings, red oak hardwood floors, massive windows, and an open floor plan that will embrace you with continuity and openness. Each window and balcony offers amazing wooded and valley views. Take advantage of our acreage, including custom hiking trails around the house, and waterfall ponds that add a constant babbling of nature. The house is engulfed by Oak, Maple, and Bay trees with many fern varieties. Our property is active with deer, wild turkeys, and many species of birds.

One of the many highlights of our home includes our custom constructed Executive Chef Kitchen with Viking appliances, custom leather granite & cabinets, including an amazing kitchen island that comfortably seats 6 for any gathering. You can personally take advantage of all the amenities of a professional chef, or skip the cooking, and enjoy an in-house Chef prepared experience that we can help you arrange. Sip a glass of wine off one of our many decks, perfect for outside lounging, or viewing the wildlife.

Adjacent to the Kitchen lies a Butler’s Pantry (a smaller kitchen), equipped with an extra dishwasher, sink & prep area with plenty of space. Our spacious Dining Room offers serious entertaining, with fabulous views.

Take advantage of dipping yourself into our Hot Tub (w/ shower), with complete privacy--no houses or fences in sight to disturb your experience.

All three bedrooms are spacious & well decorated, with the Master Suite encompassing the 2nd floor, complete with its' own deck, massive closet, and newly built Master Bath. The Guest Suite offers its own unique getaway--with warm, pine-paneled walls, it includes a kitchen, with plenty of space for dining & lounging. Both the Guest Suite and the Guest Room have their own entrance leading out to the hot tub deck. Off the Living Room, there is a wine tasting (or game) room, ideal for… well… wine tasting, playing games, reading, or just hanging out. There are three FULL bathrooms, all NEWLY constructed “Sonoma” style.

For our techno-savvy guests, we offer a Wireless Entry system (no key needed), WiFi & Satellite TV (w/ FULL DirectTV channel offerings). While are fully equipped for entertaining, we cannot accommodate parties larger than 6 guests, owing to zoning, permit regulations, and our septic capacity.

We are owner-operated, so you don't have to go through a third party management company to ask questions or arrange your booking--we are very responsive and love to help our out of town guests plan their trips, and enjoy all that Sonoma has to offer.

We are a permitted Sonoma County Vacation: TOT Certificate #995N.

Location

Car: Recommended

Deer Park Retreat is located in hills, just 10 minutes west of Sonoma Plaza. The location offers a wonderful view of Mt. Diablo, and embraces many hiking trails for outdoor adventurists! San Francisco is just 48 miles away, and Tomales Bay (ocean) is just 37 miles west. Tons of local wineries, parks and fantastic restaurants right here in Sonoma!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Being native to the Bay Area, we have been traveling to Sonoma County for many years, doing VRBO/Homeaway ourselves. It has been a long process, but we finally were able to purchase our own home in an ideal area that we just love. If you enjoy cycling and hiking, it is ideal! Now, we want to share it with other travelers seeking all that this area has offer, and hope that you will love it too!

Why the Owner Chose Sonoma:
Western Sonoma offers a special, unique mountain experience, so you gotta love the outdoors. This area is a ideal, mountain-oriented community, with horses and hiking lending many opportunities to enjoy the outdoors or just bask in nature. What intrigues us the most is the outdoor setting that envelopes ferns, Oak and Bay trees, moss, and greenery everywhere. The house itself is very secluded, with no other residences close by. A dream for us.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We are owner-operated and provide each guest with detailed attention, responsiveness to their booking and travel needs--we are exceptionally user friendly! We provide each guest stay with fresh flowers, and a bottle of local champagne or wine!
