The newly remodeled Estate at Chalk Hill is a luxury private residence in the famed Alexander Valley of Healdsburg. With approximately 3,000 square feet of living area and sweeping vineyard views, this 'contemporary rustic' retreat is the perfect place for families and friends to gather, unwind and build traditions. Perched atop a hill, The Estate at Chalk Hill feels wonderfully secluded, yet restaurants, shopping, wineries and a myriad of outdoor adventures are just a short drive away and Windsor and Healdsburg are within 5 and 10 miles, respectively.
Living. The Estate at Chalk Hill is a single level home with an open floor plan and towering beamed ceilings in communal areas. The main living room has a cozy sitting area with an over sized wood burning fireplace. A separate lounge area has a sectional couch facing a large plasma TV with surround sound, a DVD player and iPod connections. The house also has a wireless network for the convenience of guests.
Eating. The dining/kitchen area features another over-sized wood burning fireplace with a dining table that seats 10. The open kitchen has a large island with bar stools, commercial appliances and all of the dinnerware to host an amazing dinner. Should you need a place for the wine you collect during your visit, there is a 42 bottle locker in the dining area.
Sleeping. The Estate at Chalk hill has four bedrooms, one of which is also a multipurpose room perfect for children. The master features a king size bed with a large walk in closet, luxurious master bath and sliding glass door to a deck. The two guest bedrooms have queen beds and overlook vineyards. The second bath has an over sized double shower with a picture window. It adjoins one of the guest bedrooms and can also be accessed from the hallway. The final bedroom is multifunctional, and has two twin beds, a fooz ball table, a plasma tv and is connected to a full bathroom that also houses the washer/dryer.
Lounging & Playing. From every spot on the property you can take in spectacular views of the Alexander Valley and Mt. St Helena. Enjoy the pool during the day (note that it is now fenced for safety), and hot tub at night; a friendly bocce ball match or a game of 'HORSE' at the basketball half court. Small children can enjoy the walk-in playhouse. Or if lounging is what's in order, grab a book and enjoy the sun deck, hammock or porch swing. Beyond the property there are ample hiking and biking opportunities...as well as golf, zip lining, hot air ballooning and more!
In addition to the pool and hot tub, there is also a bocce court, a half basketball court and a walk-in kids wood playhouse.
We are happy to provide suggestions for babysitting, in home massage and a personal chef, as needed. ...moreless

About the owner: Our family of four resides in San Francisco, as does our extended family. Healdsburg has always been one our favorites places to escape and explore - it's understated, yet sophisticated. Chic, but not fancy. Right up our alley!
Why the Owner Chose Healdsburg: We looked at this property when it was for sale several years. We fell in love with the views (as did the VRBO Bear Traveler!), and the aesthetic of the house but the timing wasn't right. After several years off the rental market, we are delighted to be sharing The Estate at Chalk Hill with others again.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Of course we are biased but we can't think of a better gathering spot to build traditions with friends and family. The house is perfect for entertaining and togetherness - open layout, high ceilings, large farmhouse table, several fireplaces. It is both cozy and contemporary.
