Luxury abounds in this 2100 + sq.ft. (3Bed/2Bath) Wine Country retreat. This beautiful home is nestled in the “Valley of the Moon” in the heart of rolling hills, world renowned vineyards, wineries, restaurants and parks.
Farmhouse 148 is a spacious two-story mini estate constructed with amazing attention to detail and high-end finish work and complete with comfortably luxurious furnishings.
Throughout the home you will find elements of design that were salvaged and given new life, such as the antique oak hardwood floors (specially milled for this home), hand – picked fir beams and Italian stone floors which were surplus inventory purchased from an architect who procured all of the material for the Apple Stores.
The main floor houses a fantastic great room, gourmet kitchen, 1st bedroom, full bathroom, media room/extra guest space and laundry.
The delightful great room/kitchen area is perfect for entertaining.
The great room features vaulted open-beam ceilings, banks of windows, a spacious living area with comfortable seating and a large gas fireplace.
The fully stocked kitchen is a chef’s dream with top-of-the-line Viking stainless steel appliances, honed granite counter tops, counter stools and a large wooden table that seats 8-10.
The 1st bedroom on the lower level opens to the peaceful backyard. The room has a very comfortable queen sized bed, walk-in closet and well-appointed bathroom with a shower/tub combination and cement sinks restored from Sonoma Cast Stone; a local high-end supplier of cast metal pieces. Open the sliding doors to enjoy the moonlit evenings.
The media room/extra guest space acts as a den by day and can be sectioned off by a sliding door to create a room by night. The den features a large, flat screen television and a sectional couch with a very comfortable pull-out queen sleeper sofa, designed by a company that furnishes the Trump and the Ritz Carlton properties.
The upstairs houses the master bedroom and bathroom. In addition to a sitting area, the bedroom has a king sized TempurPedic bed, large closet and huge windows offering wonderful views of the backyard and countryside beyond.
The master bath is a spa haven. There is a large shower, soaking tub, dual concrete sinks and private water closet.
The home has a large, sunny, manicured back yard with many outdoor seating areas, fruit trees, fire-pit, BBQ and large hot tub. A perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine or BBQ get-together between family and friends.

Kenwood is a wonderful town and we are fortunate to have a spectacular home that is only blocks away from tasting rooms, wineries, parks and restaurants.
