Glen Ellen house description

Custom built in 2009, a luxurious 2 bedroom, 1 bath guest house on a private ridge top retreat. Perfect for a couple or a family of four getting away for a wine country weekend. In addition to approximately 1000 sq ft of interior living space, you also have big views of the Sonoma Mountain countryside, vineyards & colorful sunsets from all the rooms.

Bedrooms sleep up to 4 people as follows:
main bedroom 1: 1 queen (with dual zone heated mattress pad)
smaller bedroom 2: 2 twins in trundle format (great for kids).

The full bath has dual sinks and large glass walled shower. Top of the line linens. The kitchen is fully equipped with stainless steel appliances: gas oven, microwave, dishwasher, and refrigerator with in-door ice maker. Radiant floor heat (winter only).

Sunny and quiet, this unique eco-guest house boasts 18' thick rammed earth walls that open up via sliding glass walls to the pool, hot tub, and several stone terraces. Beautiful eco-modern finishes: recycled onxy & glass countertops; sustainably grown warm cherry & bamboo cabinets; clay walls in the kitchen, radiant floor heat (winter only). Modern luxuries like indoor & outdoor zoned music system (bring your ipod/iphone/digital music player), wifi, and DVD player. The house is tastefully furnished with art, antiques and oriental carpets - it is not child-proofed nor appropriate for very young children.

Surrounded by gardens and mature oak trees along a ridge, it is a peaceful and private place to unwind. The outdoor gas grill and table is perfect for alfresco dining. Pool-side loungers with sun or shade to recuperate after wine tasting or a hike. Or nap in the hammock & enjoy the birds singing above in the magical setting. At night, stargaze from the pool and hot tub.

NEW ADDITION: Bocce court! Added in July 2013, it is yet another way to 'while away your time' in wine country. Traditional rules provided, but it is much more fun to make up your own!

NOTE: The guest house shares the pool & hot tub with the main house. However the guest house is usually not rented when the owner is in residence, so renters have complete privacy on the property.

TulaVista is centrally located in Sonoma wine country: 5 minutes from the village of Glen Ellen, 20 minutes from Sonoma town and 20 minutes from Santa Rosa.
