Healdsburg house description
Very well located, less than 7 miles northeast of Healdsburg’s historic Plaza, perched on the slope of the western foothills of the Alexander Valley, this absolutely divine, nearly new, custom 3br plus bonus room/2.5ba modernistic eco-friendly wonder also has a lovely 1br/1ba guest house; combining for 3+ bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms, accommodating 8+ guests, and is beautifully decorated with eclectic art and each piece of furniture is handpicked with great taste, making the home an ‘artist’s paradise’.
This 4.5 acre Wine Country paradise has a Cabernet vineyard with ‘end of the road’ privacy, and all of this luxury is so close to Sonoma County’s ‘crown jewel’ and world class destination, Healdsburg! Up the paved drive, you will find plenty of parking behind the home. Follow the flag step stones over granite gravel to the entry walkway, with beautiful Asian-themed landscaping including bamboo, Japanese maples, lavender, olive trees, citrus trees, and a decorative dry creek bed. The entry side of the house is also half covered with beautiful clinging ivy and plenty of outdoor lighting welcoming your return to your ‘castle’ after sunset, as well as for your evening entertaining enjoyment.
This stunning tri-level main home is nearly 2700 sq. ft. and features a spectacular three level, 16-window corner array which provides unparalleled views of the hillside vineyards, the Alexander Valley, and beyond. Heat is provided by an eco-friendly hydronic system which heats the floors for use in the late fall and early winter. The main level living area’s ceramic logged fireplace also provides warmth. Plenty of cooling is also available with the Great Room’s central AC and all of the bedrooms have their own individual wall mounted AC units. With great design and insulation, the home stays warm when it is cold, cool when it is warm, and is very energy efficient.
Enter the home’s main level and be wowed by the beautiful custom stairway which leads ‘up to heaven’, the upper level Master Suite open loft, as well as down to the lower level’s bedroom, media/bonus bedroom, and bath. The main level has an open flowing floor plan with the living area to the right of the entry with soaring ceilings and features a beautiful ceramic logged gas fireplace, with a large leather sectional and lounge, several easy chairs, and two ceiling fans. The beauty of the outdoors is invited in by the abundant windows, sliders, and particularly the spectacular corner window array.
The living area opens to a beautiful dining room with a recycled wood dining table with benches, comfortably seating 8-10, and a double full glass slider opens to the large main level deck from the dining room; another full glass door provides deck access from the adjoining kitchen side deck. Music on the main level is provided by a Pioneer receiver with an adapter for your iPhone, iPod, iPad, and mp3 player.
The ‘heart’ of this home is the beautiful Gourmet Kitchen featuring a 6-burner professional stainless steel KitchenAid built-in range in a stainless steel-topped central island with upper counter and four wine barrel stools for the ‘backseat chefs’. This kitchen also features two deep stainless steel sinks and prep areas, one with purified reverse osmosis water, with three KitchenAid dishwashers for easy and efficient food prep and clean-up. Completed by a KitchenAid built-in stainless steel fridge over freezer combo, microwave, 12-cup coffeemaker, professional stainless steel cookware, bakeware, plateware, glassware, knives, utensils, spices, coffee, olive oil, etc; all you will need to prepare your feast is your ‘vino and vittles’.
To the left of the main kitchen sink is a small HD TV if you need inspiration from the Cooking channel for your gourmet meal. You may notice in the picture tour of the kitchen, on the wall next to the fridge, there is a wood fired pizza oven which is exclusively for owner use, due to the serious risk of smoke and fire hazard. The oven takes a couple days of training to learn how to use and several hours to warm to temperature, and is generally only used for pizza parties. Lastly on the main level to the left of the entry is a convenient half bath.
Now let’s take the ‘stairway to heaven’ to the Master Suite open loft with bamboo flooring and tile in the ensuite bath. The Master loft bedroom has a sub-wall and railed side open to main level Great Room; a freestanding wooden privacy partition opens to cover the railed side and is provided for your comfort. This stunning suite features a king size platform bed for the ‘royals’ of your group and is beautifully furnished with a large decorative ottoman, a full size freestanding mirror, and a couple upholstered sitting chairs on an area rug. There is also a lovely decorative ceiling fan above the bed.
The Master loft’s private ensuite bath is high tech and spa-inspired with a double, porcelain, bowl-topped vanity, tiled floors with walls tiled in beautiful iridescent glass, a large walk-in shower, a deep soaking tub with waterfall spout within the shower enclosure, and a large window with privacy film, for ambient light. This beautiful shower has a ceiling mounted, large, square shower head with three water feature settings and a whole kaleidoscope of light choices to color the falling water. There is also a wall mounted wand for convenience, as well as a low bench/step to the deep porcelain soaking tub. A private water closet and a large walk-in closet with a stacked front loading KitchenAid washer/dryer ensemble complete this beautiful space.
Moving back down the stairwell to the lower level, to the left is the media entertainment room with a 60” Sharp HD TV with an Xbox 360 and LG Blu-ray player; speakers mounted in the ceiling and a nice collection of DVDs and Xbox games are provided for your enjoyment while at the home. This lovely room is furnished with a twin daybed, two oversized stuffed leather chairs, and a beautiful custom-crafted wood table. This area is floored with a rich brown, burnished concrete with hydronic heat and a Hepa Air filtration system circulates freshly filtered air through the bottom level, for your comfort. The lower level is also home to the bonus/guest room with queen bed, 40” HD TV, a small work desk, and a wall mounted AC unit.
To the right of the media room is a bonus convertible bedroom with a queen bed, 40” Sony HD TV with DirecTV, LG Blu-ray player, and a Denon surround sound with wall mounted speakers, and a small work desk. A large beautiful Jack N Jill bath sits between the front two rooms of the lower level from the second guest bedroom, with queen bed, work desk, a 60” Sony HD TV with DirecTV, and a wall mounted AC unit. With most of its walls tiled in a beautiful blue opalescent glass and additional tile detail on the burnished copper colored concrete, the lower level Jack N Jill bath is lovely and features a deep soaking tub with shower above combo.
The main house is graced with 3000 sq. ft. of beautiful decking with the larger two-level deck on the main level and stairs leading down to a slightly smaller beautiful deck on the lower level. Furnished with a table, four cushioned rockers, and outdoor sofa, from the main level deck, take two steps down to the lower area of this large deck including a dining table for six with umbrella, a KitchenAid 36” wide stainless steel propane grill for your ‘roast beast’.
This upper part of the main level deck also includes a stainless steel KitchenAid portable sink cabinet prep area on wheels, and a second rolling stainless steel kitchen serving table. From the main level deck, a short flight of stairs brings you to the large lower level deck featuring aan 8’x8’, 6+ person, high end, nearly new Divine freestanding spa. Additional furnishings include a couple of cushioned chairs with a side table, two lounge chairs, several beautiful large potted plantings and climbing vines around the rails and, of course, the beautiful forever views from this Wine Country ‘paradise’.
Last but not least is the beautiful guest cottage which is just a short walk down a lit concrete pathway, through the vineyard. Up a flight of stairs and you land on a nice sized entry deck with seating and beautiful views from the second floor, which is home to the guest studio. Enter this beautiful studio through the front sliding glass door and this suite is bright and airy with a wrought iron king canopy bed, a beautiful dresser, side table, a 30” Samsung HD TV with DirecTV, and a double paned full glass French door which opens to a Cinderella balcony with views of the upslope vineyards and the main house above.
Heat and AC for the guest suite is provided by an energy efficient wall mounted unit to ensure your comfort. The suite’s small kitchenette includes a hotplate, fridge, sink, toaster oven, and a coffeemaker for two, and the lovely bath of the suite includes a wall mounted porcelain sink, marble tiled floors, and a large walk-in tiled shower with two small opening windows and vent.
This spectacular Alexander Valley Wine Country ‘paradise’ is so close to Healdsburg and yet surrounded by working vineyards and provides an authentic ‘grape escape’. Ideally located for enjoying all that Sonoma County has to offer, the Soda Rock Ridge Estate is a perfect ‘home base’ whether you just stay in, relax, and soak up all of the beauty and luxury, or venture out in almost any direction to experience the many adventures nearby. In addition to the Alexander Valley wine growing region just to the east, a few miles west is the Dry Creek Valley wine growing region, and just a little south, River Road provides you entry to the Russian River Valley wine growing region.

ReviewsWrite a review
Wonderful time in this beautiful hilltop home in Healdsburg. The layout of the house, and the available guest house, was perfect for visiting with family....parents and 5 adult children. We loved the large back deck with the magnificent view. Convenient to town, but secluded enough for privacy. Perfect home for a large family.
