Bathed in natural light and with views that span nearly a hundred miles, Chill Hill is a secluded hilltop getaway that's perfect for a memorable, relaxing wine country holiday. The house features lush, natural views from every window (even the bathrooms) and is located within minutes of world-class wineries, the coast, and the quaint towns of Healdsburg, Sonoma, Glen Ellen, and Kenwood. It's a perfect location -- close to everything, but a million miles away.
Outdoors: The house is set-up for true California Wine Country living. Like a mini-resort, it features: - 30' swimming pool fed by crystal clear, spring water. - Outdoor dining pavilion with giant views of the Russian River Valley - Yoga deck - Zen garden - Herb garden and seasonal vegetable gardens - Several outdoor seating areas - Hilltop perch - Fruit trees: apples, oranges, lemons, plums, olives... - Weber BBQ - Chiminea
Inside: The house has three bedrooms. On the first floor is a large master with en suite bath and natural stone, walk-in shower for two. There are two more bedrooms that share a brand new, slate and marble bath on the secluded second floor. Both upstairs bedrooms open to an adjoining sunroom with a DVD screen, spin bike, sitting area, and tons of books. The main floor features a living room and dining area with formal seating for six. There is also an 6' ebony grand piano and giant picture windows facing the Russian River Valley, Dry Creek Valleys and the coastal hills. At the heart of the main floor is a large, open, chef's kitchen with Viking appliances, commercial gas range, La Pavoni espresso machine, and a beautiful 11-foot antique work table from 19th century France, with stool seating for casual meals. The kitchen spills to a warm seating area with wood-burning fireplace, flat screen TV, and a giant picture window with expansive valley views all the way to the coast and guaranteed gorgeous sunsets just about every evening.
Natural wood plank floors span the first floor with beautiful Persian carpets, recessed halogen lighting (all on dimmers), Asian antiques, and beautiful artwork. The house is instantly comfortable and perfectly decorated with restraint and casual elegance.
A short walk down the hill will take you to the area's best bakery, coffee shop, florist, a boutique grocery store, and a popular family restaurant -- all locally owned. The renowned Santa Rosa Certified Farmer's Market is a few miles away on Wednesday and Saturday mornings. Downtown is just a few minute drive where you'll find Michelin-awarded restaurants, cafes, shopping, movies, live music, brew-pubs, attractions, and more. And of course, there are hundreds of world-class wineries to be explored in every direction. We've left an extensive list of our favorite local spots for guests.

Tucked into the gentle, verdant Sonoma County foothills, Chill Hill is just a few minutes to the downtown: shops, restaurants, cafes, brew-pubs, local gourmet treats & attractions. It's only 15-20 minutes to Healdsburg, Sonoma Square, Kenwood, Glen Ellen, Petaluma, and about 25 minutes to the legendary beaches and coves of the Pacific Coast.
Located about 45 minutes north of San Francisco, you'll find over 200 wineries within a short drive. Napa Valley is to the east and world-class cycling roads (and trails) connect the entire area.
While the home and grounds are private, quiet, and perched on a secluded ridge-top with amazing vistas, you can descend the hill in minutes to be in the heart of the action if you choose.
About the owner: We love to travel, cook, entertain, and play. Food, wine and music are some of our passions and we've found all of them here in gorgeous Northern California. This has been an inspiring place for us to be creative, to write, play music, and welcome friends.
Why the Owner Chose Santa Rosa: Chill Hill provides the perfect escape to relax, entertain, cook, or just float in the pool after a day visiting the area's world class vineyards. The house instantly feels like a vacation resort and it's been tastefully decorated with Asian and European antiques. We recently installed a chef's kitchen using high-end appliances, commercial gas stove, and an 11' work table from 19th century France. The secluded grounds are filled with fruit trees and you're welcome to help yourself to whatever happens to be in season. Beautiful sunsets are guaranteed and our local deer often wander up to the front windows to get a look inside. Even though the house is just minutes from town, you'll feel like you're way out in the country...and on top of the world.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa: We took the advice of an old-timer who shared some home-buying wisdom a few years ago. He said if you're going to live in the SF Bay Area, you should seek out three things:
1) a great view 2) lots of sunshine 3) a pool
