Stock up with gourmet ingredients and local wines, surround yourself with loved ones, and settle into comfy surroundings for your incomparable wine country experience. Whip up a tantalizing meal in the spacious kitchen; enjoy a formal dinner at the large hand crafted dining table, or outdoors overlooking the pool and vineyards. Catch up on the news or watch movies in the great room, complete with a large flat screen television and gas fireplace.

The well-equipped kitchen, with granite counter tops, central island, and sparkling new stainless steel appliances, provides workspace for family and friends who cook together.

The expansive great room, open to the kitchen, features ample seating in comfortable leather sofas and club chairs, a gas fireplace, game table, flat screen television, unique dining table and views over the terrace, pool and vineyards to the mountains. The sunsets are breathtaking.

Comfortable, light filled bedrooms are well appointed and feature outstanding furnishings and linens. The Vineyard Suite features a king bed, flat screen wall hung television, vineyard views and a private bath with granite countertops, dual sinks and beautifully tiled rain shower. The Vintage room is furnished with a captivating vintage art décor set in pristine condition. Vineyard views, a private bath and a queen bed make the cottage master a great choice when selecting bedrooms for your guests. For those who prefer the unique, a beautifully made wine barrel headboard meticulously handcrafted by the owner sets the Barrel Room apart.

Hardwood floors grace living areas, the kitchen is tiled, and carpets soften bedrooms in the expanded and renovated farmhouse. An enormous terrace made of pavers flows from the great room to create a spacious outdoor living area with pool, spa, grill and fire pit. A bocce court further expands the space and recreational opportunities to make your stay a fun filled experience with family and friends. The Villa is truly so special that you may have difficulty leaving to attend events and tasting appointments – but no worries – you will be able to make reservations for many future visits.


Stocking up on food and wine in Sonoma is a pleasure with numerous gourmet indulgences, grocery stores, wine shops and wineries so nearby. Broadway Market, just one mile west of The Villa, carries basic supplies, has an excellent meat department and great sandwiches for take out. Whole Foods, Sonoma Market, and Safeway, just a few minutes away, are near Sonoma Plaza on West Napa Street. A number of wine shops and tasting rooms are located on and around Sonoma Plaza. Nearby Sonoma’s Best at the junction of East Napa St and Eighth St East, features gourmet take out and a lovely patio for breakfast and lunch. The Farmer’s Market operates seasonally on Tuesday evenings in Sonoma Plaza and at Depot Park on Friday mornings.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2012

About: We have lived in Sonoma County most of our adult lives. We love this beautiful area and all it has to offer for those who love the outdoors. We are both retired and longed for a retreat for our extended family to gather. So - we bought a little old farmhouse, lifted it, moved it, remodeled it, expanded it and put our fingerprint on its new design. It was our goal to make the outdoors as much a part of the living space as the indoors. We beleive that we have succeeded! and invite guests to enjoy Villa in the Vines as much as we do! Thomas and Sylvia Silewicz

Why Sonoma:
We live in Sonoma County and chose our farmhouse to transform and mold into the retreat of our dreams because of its exceptional location in the vineyards of Sonoma Valley. It is near town, yet far away. The location and views could not be more appealing. The setting and location are incomparable.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Villa in the Vines is centrally located for family gatherings and is located in an ideal location for guests due to its close proximity to Sonoma Plaza and the wineries of Sonoma, the Carneros, and Napa Valley.
