Boonville house description

A rural retreat in a vineyard-laden valley in Mendocino County. 2 1/2 hours North of San Francisco. A converted barn, three bedrooms, 2 baths, just renovated in 2011. Serene and comfortable with the perfect beauty of classic California vistas. If you're interested in a peaceful alternative to city or suburban life, this fits the bill. Read in the hammock. Picnic at Hendy Woods, a magnificent stand of old-growth redwoods. There's a great local ice cream shop in 'town.' Come read, rest, walk, meditate, contemplate. It's beautiful. More beautiful 'in the flesh,' thank any of the photos can show...

              Location

              Anderson Valley is a very beautiful (VERY beautiful!) classic California landscape: grasslands and california oaks, and many vineyards with Mendocino appellations. The Louis Roederer champagne-makers (makers of Cristal Champagne in France) have chosen Anderson Valley for their American vineyards and produce Roederer Sparkling Wines in the valley. It is a simpler, less gentrified, and more agrarian environment than Napa, with lovely sophistication and atmosphere in the valley. The forests are comprised of coastal redwoods, the tallest trees on earth. As the crow flies, it's about fifteen or 20 miles inland from the north coast of California, insuring sunshine in the valley when it's often foggy on the coast. There are a couple of small towns in the valley, which have local restaurants, and the food sensibility is quite satisfying, with contemporary California values that appreciate what is from the locality. There are many day trips to experience, town and country, and the peacefulness and beauty of the environment is treasured, rarer and rarer in the world today. We've planted some olives, lavendar, rosemary, a riot of roses... it's California with the scents of Provence. In the autumn, the vineyards turn burgundy and gold, depending on the varietals. It is breathtakingly lovely to behold.

              Year Purchased: 1997

              About the owner: We are from Hollywood! This retreat of ours in Mendocino County offers us the opposite to our life in Los Angeles. We work in the entertainment industry; I am a writer and my husband is an actor. (Mendocino is my writing retreat.) We truly cherish the times when our family, our children and grandchildren, come and enjoy the retreat with us. In summer, the kids love the pool, hiking, going into the forest, going to the beach on the coast, taking our 'poke boat' out on the rivers, and lying in the hammocks to read and rest. Being in this tranquillity definitely represents The Other to our urban lifestyle.
