Sonoma farmhouse description

Vintage Hill is a totally remodeled country home with a 2700 sf , 3 BR+3 BA main house and a 750 sf one BR +1 BA cottage on 25 acres overlooking a panoramic view of the oldest family-owned winery in California. Large windows and French doors bathe its interior in constant light. Extensive outdoor entertainment areas invite casual wine country comfort. Vintage Hill is in a rural, very private setting, yet is less than 7 minutes from the historic Sonoma Plaza.

Exterior: The wrap- around porch with a dining table for eight offers exquisite views of sun sets, Mt. Tam, vineyards and the home’s majestic oaks, rose and vegetable gardens. Behind the home, is a solar heated pool sheltered by rock walls and a flowered hillside.

Interior: Designed by a prominent San Francisco interior designer, Vintage Hill has an immediate air of elegance and welcome, with a size and scale that invites hospitality and great comfort. With its two wood burning fireplaces, large family room\kitchen and large living\dining room, the home is the ideal wine country retreat.
The gathering place is the kitchen\family room which includes a 24 foot ceiling, wood burning fire place, 50” HD TV and a surround sound audio system. There is Wi-Fi throughout the main house and cottage (which has its own TV). There is a game table which can be expanded to accommodate meals for six. The kitchen has professional grade appliances and equipment.
The living\dining room also has 24 foot ceilings and a wood burning fire place. The dining table will accommodate 12 people.
We look forward to having you as our guest.

                  Year Purchased: 2003

                  About the owner: Thornsberry is our second home. We spent several years researching before we chose Sonoma and then three years completely remodeling (gut rehab) this farmhouse. My wife is an interior designer and only the finest materials and workmanship went into this house.

                  Very comfortable, completely renovated farm house. Fabulous views, beautiful rose and vegetable garden quiet. Interior

                  The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
                  In the country but 7 minute drive to historic town of Sonoma. Great views of vineyards and mountains. Secluded with great privacy. Solar heated pool. Fabulous guest cottage.
