Glen Ellen house description

(TOT#1447N) Enchanted Cottage is a gracious wine country getaway in Northern California. Minutes from the charming, gourmet paradise of Glen Ellen in Sonoma Valley, California. Just an hour from the Golden Gate bridge and San Francisco but a world away-- and out of the fog.
World class wineries, restaurants and activities within a five-minute radius of this peaceful estate. Breathtaking scenery in every direction. Popular hiking and biking destination. Heaven for children.
Why this property? My father lived in rural England for 10 years of his life after he retired. His and other homes in Somerset were casual but comfortable. As welcoming for people as for dogs, with a sort of 'active relaxation' the norm. Room enough for gatherings, but plenty of odd spaces for solitude both inside and out. A large welcoming kitchen and outdoor seating, but places for reading or an afternoon nap. Space enough outside for children to roam (with a creek to wade in) but close enough to town for a quick trip to the store for milk or bread (or lighter fluid.) Of course in the wine country, we had to add a pool. Our house has worked for our family as a place that is distinct from our San Francisco city life but is civilized in its own way. After a day, the oaks and quiet work their magic and you can't help but unwind.
Welcome!
Inviting 4 Bedroom Country Cottage, landscaped with Pool and quiet environs, 2 miles to Glen Ellen.
There are 2 large bedrooms with King beds. One has direct access out to the pool, the other has its own private deck. There is a bedroom with 2 single beds that can be converted into a King, with access to the pool. There is a bonus room with a double bed.
2 Bathrooms, one with shower/bath, the other with a shower and a bath.
The house has the benefit of have two 'wings,' each with its own bath for added privacy.
The spacious, well equipped kitchen was recently updated with a double oven, gas range and adjoins the dining area.
There are views of Sonoma Mountain from the living room and the pool. Our furnishings are comfortable and inviting.
(Our photos are out of date and not great quality but are still representative of the cottage. We will revamp them as soon possible. We had a stint of long term tenants in the house, hence the lack of reviews for VRBO and no recent photos. We wanted to get our site up ASAP so people could take advantage of our great property for the summer!)

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1993

About the owner: We have loved Sonoma and Glen Ellen since 1990. We ended up buying our 'cottage' in 1993 to escape the freezing summers of San Francisco with our young children. We lived overseas (Spain) for a spell, and then actually lived in the cottage full time for 3 years and then ended up back in San Francisco. Our children are very attached to the house and the area, and it has been a very special place for us and all the guests we've had over the years.

Why the Owner Chose Glen Ellen:
We were looking for a getaway that was close to San Francisco, and Sonoma fit the bill perfectly. Since we were trying to escape the fog, beach was out of the question!! Glen Ellen is close enough to Sonoma, but quiet and has more of a country feel. The summers are glorious, but the rest of the year is quite beautiful too. We've traveled all over Europe and the scenery in the Valley of the Moon can match any sights we've seen. This property was particularly appealing because it is close to town (1.7 mi) with its market, but feels quiet and remote. The old oak trees are spectacular and add to the charm and rustic 'Old California' feel.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house is on one level, and though has plenty of room, it has an intimate 'cottage' feel. It is close to town and has an acre of pasteur in front for added privacy.
