Property description

Buena Vista River house is a charming, 4 bedroom, vacation home on Fitch Mountain just outside the city of Healdsburg in beautiful Sonoma County. It boasts fantastic, 360-degree views over the Russian River and the surrounding hills.

Located just a 5 minute drive to the downtown square and a 5 minute walk to a wonderful beach, this vintage home is spacious and comfortable, with high ceilings and original wood floors throughout. This home has a large, fully equipped country kitchen with checkerboard floors and a vintage stove. The 500 square foot living room comes with a stone fireplace, and two bay windows overlooking the river. The dining room is an ideal place for celebrations and memorable meals with its large, custom-built table and stunning views of the river and surounding hills. This sunny home retains many of the original details including interior french doors and built in alcoves.There is charming garret office, and four bedrooms, one with a king, two with queens and one with two twins and a toddler bed.(A queen size futon mattress is also available.) Our house has one large bathroom with a separate bath and shower,and a half bath off the laundry room which comes with a washer and dryer for your convenience. A large private deck, with remarkable views, crowns this two story home, and is ideal for sunbathing or stargazing… in fact whenever we stay there during the summer we sleep out on the deck.
There is a small front yard with a picket fence, and a gas barbecue for your use. There is off-street parking for 2 cars in the driveway.

This home is set in a quiet neighborhood which is perfect for large family gatherings or relaxed getaways with friends, but not for wild parties. There is also a full time rental on this property with a separate yard and parking, so please respect the privacy of this and all our neighbors.

The house is a wonderful base for exploring Sonoma and Napa Counties with many local attractions including swimming, biking, and canoeing on the Russian River (only a short walk from the house), wine tasting in the many local wineries including Clo Du Bois, Fetzer Vineyards, Chateau Sovereign, or any of the other unique and excellent wineries tucked in the Dry Creek, Alexander, or Russian River valleys.

You can enjoy touring the beautiful open farms along the Sonoma County farm trails, hiking through the giant redwoods, cycling the scenic country roads, exploring the rugged Sonoma or Mendocino Coast, and water sports on Lake Sonoma.

Or... you may choose to pamper yourself in the hot springs and spas of nearby Calistoga or simply enjoy village life in the charming old town of Healdsburg. This historic town includes a beautiful town square with a wealth of wineries,cafes, bakeries, fine restaurants, a weekly farmers market, and antique shops, and summer concerts in the park. There are places to rent bikes and canoes, all within a 5 minute drive from the house.
The Buena Vista Riverhouse is an old fashioned family home, light and bright, and spacious enough for family and friends to gather, to visit, to share their days together. We hope you enjoy it, and all of Sonoma County as much as we do.

Location

Car: Necessary

Buena Vista Riverhouse is perfectly located for you to enjoy all that the Sonoma County Wine Country has to offer. Located an hour and a half north of fabulous San Francisco, you can enjoy the many unique and inviting wineries in Healsburg's Dry Creek Valley, Westside Rd, the Russian River Valley and more, and still make it home for an afternoon swim just a 5 minute walk from the house. We are close to Healdsburg's downtown square, where you can grab the best bread and pastries, and then enjoy live music in the park on Tuesdays throughout the summer. Rent bicycles and explore our scenic valleys or canoes and paddle down the lazy Russian River. Ours is a family friendly spot from which to savor the natural beauty of Sonoma County.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: Hello, we are Tom and Liz Cozine, and we fell in love with the Russian River during the many summer days we spent here while our kids were young. They learned to swim and kayak here, to skip rocks along its banks, to look for turtles and tadpoles…to simply play and grow and go with the flow of the river! When we first saw the Buena Vista Riverhouse, we knew it was just the right vacation house for us. It had all the old fashioned charm of the Classic Healdsburg homes while being just up the hill from our favorite beach, Camp Rose. We have spent so many wonderful times gathered here with family and friends, enjoying grand meals together in the dining room or watching the sunsets or shooting stars from the deck. If you choose to stay here, we hope you enjoy its relaxed charm and beauty as much as we have.
