Glen Ellen house description

Tucked into the Mayacamas mountains separating the Sonoma and Napa Valleys, Oliveira has been optimized for relaxed adult entertaining.

The great room flows easily into over 1000 square feet of deck with a choice of eating and lounging areas. From your fully equipped kitchen, you can look out over the mountains as you prepare fresh seasonal produce paired with local meats, wines and cheeses.

The three bedrooms are outfitted with luxury beds and Italian linens and the loft has an additional queen size sleeper sofa with a bed-like mattress.

The three full baths are stocked with the finest quality towels, as well as Kiehls shampoo and custom-made local soaps.

There are three flat screen TVs with DirecTV, an Xbox 360 in the loft, a computer with color printer, internet access and unlimited domestic calls from the landline.

The salt-water pool has solar heat during spring, summer and fall and the six-person, salt-water hot tub is kept an inviting 100 degrees year-round.

There is a small garden at the entrance that can be enjoyed from the porch swing and the 10-acre property boasts over 150 olive trees - giving it it's name (Oliveira is Portuguese for 'olive tree'). There is extensive landscaping featuring lavender, rosemary and other flowering plants.

To help you feel welcome regardless of how far you traveled, the owners speak Portuguese, French and Spanish (and are fluent in Southern!).

Come share the wonder of the Mayacamas mountains with us for an unforgettable vacation.

                  Car: Necessary

                  Sonoma Valley appeals to a large cross-section of interests. Many come for the food and wine and end up discovering the nuanced history of the region, the topography that is ideal for hiking and biking, the amazing bio-diversity and unspoiled wilderness so close to a major urban center and the outstanding weather. What brings people back time and again is the friendliness of the locals and the feeling that a progressive slice of small-town America is thriving in northern California. Come enjoy real wine country!

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2012

                  About the owner: We have called Glen Ellen home for six years. Our professional lives are split between the pharmaceutical industry and real-estate. We were drawn to the Sonoma Valley by the warmth - of the people and the climate - and are very active in the community. We invite you to come home to Sonoma!

                  Why the Owner Chose Glen Ellen:
                  We bought Oliveira because of its unique combination of seclusion and accessibility. Sitting on the deck around the pool, it's easy to forget that you are so close to so much. Yet, turn left out of the driveway and in fiive minutes you are in 'downtown' Glen Ellen, the heart of Sonoma Valley, with its world class restaurants, wineries, parks and amazing village market. Turn right out of the driveway and a beautiful twenty-minute drive lands you in Oakville, in the heart of Napa Valley.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Completely updated A-frame with expansive views of the Mayacamas mountains. The home has an open interior floor plan that is perfect for entertaining but is surpassed by the outdoor space - with salt-water pool and hot tub and a number of lounging and dining areas. Oliveira is the perfect place to get away from your 'regular' life and lose yourself in the wine-country lifestyle for a weekend a week or longer.
