Monte Rio house description

If you haven't already fallen in love with this part of the world, you will now. La Vie Boheme is absolutely quintessential wine country. It's a special place - its storybook setting and private gardens are the perfect backdrop to create lasting memories with family and friends.

Located just steps from the creek, this beautiful 2-bedroom/1-bath home, with adjacent 1-bedroom/1-bath cottage is a perfect retreat and a destination unto itself.

The house is nestled along the Dutch Bill Creek that runs from its watershed source in Occidental to the Russian River. It is surrounded by an acre of abundant gardens with flowers, Japanese maples, dogwoods, magnolias, pear trees, flowering cherries, and peaceful age-old redwood trees.

The interior juxtaposes modern architectural elements with designer furnishings for a truly classical style. The bright, airy living room has a gas fireplace, flat screen TV, sumptuous furniture, and soaring ceilings. It’s a truly unique setting that allows you to view the redwoods in absolute comfort.

The beautiful spiral staircase leads to the upstairs master bedroom with soaring ceilings, and skylight which provides this unique perspective on the rest of the house. The upstairs bedroom is spacious and elegant, with its own private deck overlooking the creek.

The galley kitchen, adjacent to the dining room, is completely updated with everything you could need for gourmet cooking. From gorgeous tile backsplash to stainless steel appliances, you’ll feel pampered here!

The main floor bedroom has sliding doors to private deck overlooking the creek. The many windows connect you to nature, yet it's a truly private setting.

The beautifully remodeled bath in the main house has high-end fixtures and a sunken tub/shower combo, putting it in the running for 'best room in the house'.

Take in and enjoy the wildlife on any one of the many decks and watch the birds (both local and migratory), or watch the children play in the creek, with the water up to their ankles as they fish for minnows with their nets. When the creek rises, the swimming hole is the perfect place to teach your little ones how to swim.

The studio cottage is spacious, with a full kitchen and bath, plenty of light, and great views.

Spend the afternoon playing croquet on the adjacent lawn or relax and rejuvenate under the gazebo with a cold glass of Sauvignon Blanc.

There are so many sweet spots to enjoy this property, whether you want sun, shade, or a little of both. Regardless, you'll always have a great view of the creek.
