Summer Time is a lovely, airy 3 bedroom and 2.5 bathroom house on the shores of the Russian River in Monte Rio, CA
The house (appr.1600sq' )is located in the desirable Northwood Golf Course community. You can play golf in the morning, swim or canoe in the afternoon, and enjoy a glass of wine on the deck in the evening, admiring the redwoods across the river and the gentle flow of the Russian River. Almost every window of the home provides a view of the towering redwoods that surround the house.

You enter the house on the bottom floor, where the garage and third bedroom are located. Coming up the stairs, you enter the great room, with the kitchen, dining, and living room flowing together into a warm, airy space, with cathedral redwood ceilings. Even though you are surrounded by redwoods, the house feels warm and open-not dark like an old cabin.

The living room has three large bay windows that provide views of the 2nd fairway of the golf course. Two couches and an easy chair provide ample space to unwind. There is a 32' flat screen TV as well. The living room also features a wood-burning fireplace.

The dining room has a French door that leads you to a large redwood deck (25'x17') with views of the river and across to a redwood forest. The dining room seats six.

The kitchen is fully equipped with electric stove, recently replaced dishwasher, microwave oven, coffeemaker, and garbage disposal. Another large window over the kitchen sink looks out to the upper deck and forest.

The upper deck (425 sq') is a bird-watchers paradise, in the mornings you will see swallows flying over the river. There is a large, round table with room for six chairs and one couch and two zero gravity chairs. The deck is equipped with a new gas barbeque. For those sunny afternoon naps, the deck has a 10'x10' electric retractable awning, which provides excellent shade.

On the same floor as the living and dining room and kitchen are two bedrooms and bathrooms.

The master bedroom is spacious and has a large window facing the river and redwood forest. It has an en suite bathroom with separate shower and tub. The tub sits across side yet another window. Again, views to the redwoods surround you. The master bedroom sleeps 2 in a king bed.

The second bedroom also has a king bed and sleeps 2. It includes a large window facing the golf course.

The second bathroom is roomy and has a large shower.
This bathroom also includes the washer and dryer.

The entrance/lower level consists of the entrance hall and a hallway that leads to a large bedroom/lounging room combination. This room includes a King bed, a large leather corner couch, and a reclining chair. It has
a 32' flat screen TV as well. A sliding glass door from this room leads to the bottom redwood deck (680 sq') and out to the seven person hot tub.
Also on the entrance level is a rustic 1/2 bathroom with cold water sink.
