About the Property
House, 3 Bedrooms, 4.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 8+)
The main house with its columns, curved terrace, balconies, stone floors with radiant in-floor heating and Palladian interior architecture, won the Sonoma League for Historic Preservation's top design award for new construction in 1991 .It has three bedrooms and two and a half baths, as well as a sunny cooks’ kitchen, open-plan living- and dining-room with 20-foot ceilings and stone fireplace, and media room. The veranda, accessed by French doors, runs along the south side of the house, allowing for gracious indoor-outdoor living. Each bedroom (1 king, 2 queens) has its own flat-screen TVand satellite receiver. Two of the three bedrooms have private, south-facing verandas, with views of vineyards, the valley, and San Francisco beyond. The third offers views of the Mayacama Mountains.
Additional amenities: luxurious bedding, guest robes, gas barbecue, bocce ball, private walking paths, CD and DVD player, satellite TV with DVR, wireless internet, air-conditioning, and alarm system.
The grounds are a mix of lovely Mediterranean gardens, meadows, and groves of fragrant bay and eucalypt trees. You can pick your own lavender, rosemary, lemons, and oranges just outside the kitchen door, and the formal plaza, with its two-tier stone fountain, is perfect for entertaining.
The stylish cabana, pool, and spa are located just steps from the main villa, yet remain private behind a wrought-iron gate and stone walls. The heated pool offers both a terraced lounge area, as well as a lap pool and fountains. The adjacent spa can be heated to your desired temperature. Cushioned chaise lounges on the shaded terrace provide sweeping vistas of the valley below. The cabana offers a full bath, sitting area, flat-screen TV, stereo system, and continental kitchen.
This charming detached cottage has full bath, flat-screen TV and continental kitchen. Its location, set back from the main villa, offers stunning mountain views to the north and east.
Villa Montagna offers the best of California wine country: It's an easy ten-minute drive from the fine restaurants, boutiques, spas, and tasting rooms in Sonoma and Glen Ellen, but its serene hillside location makes you feel as though you're a world away. The closest wineries are located five-minutes by car down the hill, at Moon Mountain, and Mayo vineyards—all with lovely gardens and grounds. Oak Hill Farm, a charming country market where you can buy seasonal organic produce and fresh-cut flowers, is also just minutes away at the bottom of the hill. Guided vineyard tram tours are available at the renowned Benziger Family Winery in Glen Ellen. A scenic 30-minute drive over Trinity Pass from Cavedale Road provides easy access to the Napa Valley, St. Helena and Oakville. There are three state parks for hiking within 20 minutes of the villa. Bodega Bay and the Sonoma County coastline are an hour’s drive west.

Year Purchased: 2005
About: With 3 children and 9 grandchildren on the west coast we decided to purchase a home where we could all congregate. We spend Thanksgiving together there and spring birthdays. However, we spend the summers in Canada and it seems a waste for our beautiful home to be empty all summer. Please enjoy!
