Santa Rosa house description

4BR/2BA home with large, naturally-lit living spaces. The furnishings are mid-century modern and the feeling is simple, elegant, light and comfortable. The location is rural, scenic and quiet. The property is surrounded by oak, madrone, manzanita and Douglas fir that shelter and preserve your privacy.

Extensive, tiered redwood decks overlook a sunny garden and a rolling lawn. It is a perfect spot to sit out or indoors and relax with meals, wine, a good book, good friends and family. Through the surrounding woods one can peek at acre upon acre of nearby vineyards.

The great room includes a fully equipped kitchen with a large cooking island. There are 3 bar stools at one end of the island that promote conversation with the cooks. The comfortable dining table seats 6 and can be expanded to seat 10 or 12. A large window and three sliding doors give the great room easy access to the decks and garden.

The other group rooms include a spacious, more formal living room, and a separate sitting room with view of a tranquil rock garden.

Below the decks is an open, expansive lawn that wraps around a fenced-in chef's garden, a 35-vine zinfandel vineyard and a rose garden, all of which can help make cooking and floral arrangements a treat. Pick your own tomatoes, herbs and roses! The fence is designed to minimize sharing the garden produce with the deer that wander through every evening.

The master bedroom has its own sliding door and view to the garden. It has a bathroom, shower and jacuzzi. Two other bedrooms have queen beds, and one bedroom has twin beds. There is a couch that converts to a bed and can be opened for additional sleeping. A washer and dryer are available.

For venturing out, we are a scenic 10-20 minute drive to Healdsburg, Forestville, and downtown Santa Rosa. For outdoor pursuits, the largest nearby park is Annadel State Park where you can fish in the 26-acre lake, go birding at Ledson Marsh with its 130 bird species, or swim in Spring Lake. Similarly you can hike at Shiloh Ranch Reserve or head down to the Russian River for kayaking, canoeing or swimming -- all within a 15-20 minute drive. You might find yourself content, however, with just exploring our neighborhood.

For the cyclist, the options run from a relaxed bike ride through local vineyards to a long, rigorous but spectacularly beautiful century or two. Check online and consider joining one of the many organized rides by local bike and/or culinary clubs. There is also a collection of bike route maps available at the house.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2002

                      About the owner: I recently inherited Pinecroft from a very dear friend with whom I spent many tranquil or festive, idyllic hours here cycling, cooking, gardening and wandering the trails and streets that surround us. I, our friends and my kids continue to do the same, We are hoping that you will enjoy it - and help us pay the upkeep! We cherish the opportunities to enjoy it and to share it. It is a truly special place.

                      Why the Owner Chose Santa Rosa:
                      We love Pinecroft for the feelings of serenity and beauty we experience while we are here and for the wide range of nearby activities adventures available. Perhaps the most important reason for loving this property has been the food and wine. This property is not far from some amazing local restaurants, wineries and fruit and vegie venders. When I have been diligent we also enjoy the sublime pleasure of going to the garden and picking lemons, apples, lettuce, strawberries, tomatoes etc just in time for lunch or dinner.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Comfortable, tastefully decorated, beautiful, serene, secluded -- and yet, close to so much.
