Forestville house description
This newly constructed 1,600 square foot house has complete privacy on a 10-acre hill surrounded by redwoods, sun, and stars. Dozens of tall redwoods, fir trees, oaks, and madrone, plus a collection of Japanese maples and rhododendrons. It feels far away, but Forestville and Guerneville and river beaches are all 10 minutes away. Near to the Vineman triathlon swim start. Great place to spend Thanksgiving or Christmas, or for a small office retreat. Spacious and modern 2 bedroom, 2 bath house. Very large open living room with wood-burning stove. Heating and air-conditioning have separate controls in the living room and 2 bedrooms. Upstairs master bedroom has 2 skylights and a full bathroom, with a Japanese soaking tub.
(Driveway is steep, but well-paved; you must be able to walk up 39 steps to the house.)
The fully-equipped kitchen is big enough for holiday-meal preparation, with both a renovated OKeefe and Merritt propane stove with griddle and a modern GE convection oven/microwave. You are welcome to harvest lettuce and vegetables when ripe from the large garden and use herbs from the planters on the front deck. New refrigerator with ice maker plus a wine refrigerator with separate zones for whites and reds. There also is a picnic basket for taking to the beaches.
Nearby attractions include the Russian River (10 minutes; rent canoes or kayaks at Burkes); Sonoma County's numerous wineries; the Pacific Ocean; old-world Italian dinners in Occidental (15 minutes); seafood feasts in Jenner-by-the-Sea or Bodega Bay; Armstrong Woods; the world-famous Northwood Golf Course. Excellent restaurants in Forestville: Cannetis, Backyard, Twist Eatery.
Flat-screen TV with Netflix and blue-ray player; home-theater setup with quality audio. You can plug in your Iphone, Ipod, or Ipad. Satellite high-speed Internet with WiFi. Free domestic long-distance telephone calls on the landline (only ATT cellular works here: 1-2 bars). Large BBQ with charcoal and propane grills and a smoker. Wood-burning hot tub outside (will be ready for use 8 December or so) with redwood views--very private, no chemicals in the water.
Two owl houses. An osprey nested on the ridge last summer. Many birds and squirrels and the inevitable raccoons.
Sleeps 4 to 6 (including all children age 3 and over) in 1 queen-size bed, 2 twin beds which can be converted to a king-size bed, and a double fold-out couch/bed. Off-street parking at top of hill for 3 cars maximum; parking area half way down steep driveway for 5 more cars. Smoking is allowed outdoors only.
Large well-behaved dogs are welcome. They will enjoy the large, fully-fenced area around the house.
