Property description

Welcome to your private wine country vacation home on 5 plus acres in the beautiful Russian River Valley. Only 60 miles north of the Golden Gate Bridge and 12 minutes from historic and sophisticated Healdsburg, the Four Sisters Farmhouse is the place to relax and enjoy the best of life with family and friends.

A beautiful country farmhouse powered by solar electricity with a heated pool and private hot tub in the heart of the Russian River Wine Country. Refurnished and remodeled in the summer of 2006. Spectacular views from the pool and wrap-around porch. Private hot tub on back patio.

Your front yard includes a 1/2 acre hillside vineyard with some of the regions finest Pinot grapes, a small fruit orchard and a vegetable garden. All fruit and produce in the orchard and garden are for your enjoyment if your stay is in the right season! Great for the long summer vacation or for the romantic weekend get away.

Living room with fireplace, dining room, eat-in kitchen with expanded sitting area and wood burning stove, family room, laundry room and full bath off the family room are located on the first floor. Two bedrooms with queen beds and walk-in closets, large bath with separate tub and shower, and Master Suite with king bed, fireplace, and satellite TV are located on the second floor.

All three upstairs bedrooms and the family room have new carpet. Secluded loft provides four twin beds - great for kids. Family room has a large sectional sofa or a blow up aerobed to sleep two additional guests. The Farmhouse is ideal for a large family or group. We recommend no more than 10 guests stay, but you can make it 12 if you don't mind being a bit more cozy.

The family room has a large flat-screen satellite TV with DVD, CD stereo, desktop computer with satellite internet access and printer. There is wireless internet connectivity (albeit slow, via satellite) throughout most of the first floor for your laptop computer.

Fully-equipped kitchen with updated appliances and all new cookware and tableware will satisfy the most discerning chef and entertainer. A full size refrigerator in the kitchen coupled with a refrigerator/freezer with filtered water and ice maker in the laundry room will limit the need to make extra visits to the local grocery during your stay. A Weber charcoal grill makes for great cookouts on the back patio almost year round.

Enjoy an elegant dinner in the dining room at the dining table that accomodates 10-12 guests or enjoy a casual outdoor meal on the wrap-around porch and back patio with outdoor seating for 12 at two tables.

For additional guests, two bed and breakfast accommodations are within one mile - the Farmhouse Inn and its world renowned restaurant and The Raford Inn. Great location for family reunions or to accommodate large groups.

Located in the Russian River Valley and 20 minutes from the Dry Creek and Alexander Valleys for easy access to world class wine tasting and winery tours. Shopping and dining on the historic and sophisticated Healdsburg Plaza is a 15 minute drive. Other local areas of interest are within easy driving distance - Anderson Valley (45 minutes), Sonoma Coast and Bodega Bay area (50 minutes), the historic and scenic Village of Mendocino (90 minutes), Lake Sonoma Resort area (30 minutes) and Lake Berryessa (60 minutes).

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2010

About: Heather, Donnie and Cleo - we love getting to enjoy the house on our monthly visits. We live in San Francisco, but leave our hearts in Sonoma once a month. The photo was taken poolside a year or so ago.

Why Healdsburg:
It's the perfect blend of rustic and sophisticated. We love fine wines and great foods, but we equally love to be in a more rustic, relaxed setting. The location of Four Sisters is perfect for this - if we want fancy wineries or Michelin-starred meals, we have them at our doorstep. If we want inner tubes and rafting on the river with dodgy beer in a can, we get that, too.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
As city-dwellers, we can't get enough of the orchard and veggie gardens up there. Each spring, we plant at least 6 different kinds of tomatoes, and lots of squash, cucumbers, peppers and herbs. I now jam and can all of the tree fruits up there as well - pears, apples, nectarines, figs, plums (and soon, pomegranates and persimmons).
