Property description

Kiss of Country

Our home welcomes those travelers in search of something simple. This home has been our family’s refuge since 1968. Nestled in the small town of Glen Ellen, our home is near the ranch where well-renowned author Jack London chose to settle. Jack London State Park offers many activities, such as hiking or horseback riding among giant redwoods, picnicking in a
meadow or by the lake (we recommend picking up picnic supplies at the upscale Glen Ellen Village Market, which is a couple blocks from our home) or exploring the ruins and museums that were once Jack London’s houses. There are also opportunities for hiking or biking at the Sonoma Valley Regional Park, which is a short walk from our home.

If you’re not the outdoorsy type, there are a multitude of world-class wineries and spas a short drive away. Glen Ellen is the perfect staging place for enjoying all that the Sonoma and Napa valleys have to offer. Within a 45-minute drive, you could get a massage in Calistoga, go wine tasting in the Dry Creek Valley appellation near Healdsburg, or have dinner at a celebrity chef’s restaurant in Yountville. Within a 15-minute drive, you could explore downtown Sonoma’s historic plaza, spend the day at Morton’s Warm Springs Resort and go wine tasting in Kenwood on your way back to the house, or tour the biodynamic Benziger Winery. The heart of Glen Ellen is merely a block away, and there you will find fine dining at restaurants such as The Glen Ellen Inn, Glen Ellen Star and The Fig Café. Or simply stay in and relax by the pool and hot tub, fire up the gas grill, play croquet, badminton or a game of pool. These are just a few ideas out of the myriad of possibilities afforded by our central location in the wine country.

Our 1700-square-foot, ranch-style home offers three bedrooms and two bathrooms, large picture windows, a gas fire place insert, and a game room with a pool table. A 2000-square-foot outdoor entertainment area with a pool, hot tub, redwood decks, flagstone patio, lawn area, and view of the surrounding mountains. We hope you will enjoy creating lasting memories with friends and family as we have for over 40 years!
