Location, location location! Perfectly situated only 3 miles (a 5-7 minute drive) from the charming and historic Healdsburg Plaza, this fabulous, custom three-bedroom home abounds with special eco-friendly features. You will be wowed by this modern home’s beautiful open-beamed cathedral ceiling, wall-to-wall windows and multiple full-glass, oversized French doors that let the beauty of Mother Nature inside. With vineyards all around, a short drive down a tree-lined, country lane, delivers you to this tranquil wine country home.
The beautiful new, in-ground salt water pool/spa with electric, lockable cover is solar heated, and the spa is gas heated. The partially covered front porch is a tranquil gathering place that looks out over the pool and new bocce ball court on the side. Furnished with a large teak dining table and chairs for six, four beautiful chaise lounges for the ‘sun worshipers’ and a comfy new full-sized outdoor sofa with two chairs, coffee table, and end table, this entertainment space is especially serene.
Completing the outdoor amenities are a new Weber natural gas grill plus a briquette kettle grill for the grilling “purists.”
Please note that this is not a “party house.” The setting is peaceful and bucolic, and we require that all guests respect the serenity of the area and our neighbors’ expectation of peace and quiet. We strictly enforce not just the Sonoma County Vacation Ordinance rules, also the special, including limiting the number of guests and cars that may be on the property at any time.
**Special Rules with This House**
No more than 4 cars may be on the property.
No more than 6 adults may occupy the property.
Quiet time starts, and outside activities must end, at 9:30 P.M.

Up the concrete pathway, past the roses and through the beautiful covered front entry of this Wine Country retreat delivers you to the entry hall. Polished concrete floors covered with natural fiber area rugs in the living room, bedrooms, and entertainment room are particularly welcoming. The open beamed ceilinged Great Room is on your right, with a ceiling fan for optimal air circulation. Special energy efficient shades reflect sun and heat for the large windows on the west side of the room, helping to keep the house cool in the warmer season. Beneath your feet is a massive, whole house radiant-heated concrete slab, which keeps the house cool in warm weather and warm in the winter. With excellent design and insulation, air-conditioning is not needed. The living area has two lovely, new sofas, a large recycled wood coffee table, and a couple of additional chairs. With windows all around, the quiet and peaceful environment is conducive to great conversation or a good read.
Next to the living room is the dining area with a charming 10 + person dining table constructed of recycled wood from an old Georgia textile mill. The heart of this home is its fabulous gourmet kitchen with all new stainless steel appliances, a lovely brushed black granite island with reverse osmosis water filtration, a high-end Blanco faucet with pull down handle, and bar stools for the backseat chefs. Sure to please the most discriminating chef, this beautiful gourmet kitchen features a new Italian Bertazoni 5-burner professional gas range with over-lit hood.
The under-lit cupboards on each side of the stove are window-backed to allow more ambient light in the kitchen, making this space a spectacular culinary ‘creation station’. Completing the appliances in the kitchen are a new stainless steel Bosch dishwasher and a lovely built-in stainless steel GE Monogram fridge over freezer. Unlike many rental houses, this kitchen is well equipped with plenty of professional cookware, quality stemware, dishes and everything you will need to prepare and serve your feast. On the opposite side of the kitchen is a convenient pantry that is also home to the microwave. A half bath completes the kitchen end of the great room.
Returning to the entry and the sleeping wing of the house, first up is the media room with a large sectional including a pullout queen-sized sleeper sofa (perfect for children), original oil paintings, shaded windows, a coffee table, and of course, the entertainment center. A new 60” Samsung plasma HDTV provides a perfect spot for watching movies or sports. In addition, the system boasts a Blu-ray player, Denon surround sound, and whole house sound system with speakers in the great room and master suite. There is also a universal mp3/iPod docking station, and whole house Wi-Fi is provided.
Walking down the hallway leading to the bedrooms and bathrooms brings you first to the first of three bedrooms, this one with twin beds, two large windows with Roman shades, and a jute area rug. Further down the hallway and next you will find a beautiful shared bath with shower over tub, rainforest showerhead and a beautiful single-sinked, soapstone-topped vanity with modern mirror and light sconces. The short hallway to the shared bath is also home to the laundry with a new front loading, low-water-use, high-efficiency (“HE”) washer and dryer.
Next, we arrive at the second guest bedroom with two large windows, Roman shades, a new queen bed and luxurious new linens and bedding. At the end of the hall is the very private master suite—just close the door and you will feel like you are in your own world, away from it all. The private ensuite bath is first on your left, featuring dual sinks and mirrors, a modern freestanding shower with a smooth pebbled stone floor. There is a modern but rustic outdoor shower just around the corner from the bedroom’s French doors.
The master bedroom has two large, draped windows, a built-in cabinet and shelving, and another lovely set of double full glass French doors that open to a small gravel patio with sweeping views. The French doors also have drapes so you can block the light for sleeping in or an afternoon nap. This bedroom has a lovely, new queen bed, again with gorgeous linens and bedding, a bench at the foot of the bed and end tables and lamps.
This Wine Country ‘chateau’ is a heavenly home away from home with vineyards all around. Just south of the Healdsburg square, this property offers a tranquil and serene ‘home base’ for soaking up the beauty of Mother Nature, enjoying a dip in the salt water pool and/or spa, playing a little bocce ball, or making yourself a fine feast. When you leave the property, please explore and enjoy the diversity of Sonoma County Wine Country, with more than 100 wineries, outstanding restaurants, Russian River, Sonoma Coast, and many more attractions and adventures in the ‘Tuscany’ of northern California; you will likely need at least a week to relax and feel the joy!
House is beautiful and well appointed. Loved relaxing by the pool. Enjoyed reciting limericks and laughing about the neighbor's "VRBO's NOT WELCOME" sign. We certainly felt welcome enough:)
We rented Limerick Lane in August & were thrilled with whole experience!
You never know how on line house rental will go & this experience, happily, exceeded our expectations.
It was easy to book, guided tour of house was right on time when we arrived & best of all, the place was FAB! Well stocked luxury linens, kitchen supplies (essential for wonderful dining al fresco & bocce balls to boot. The pool/hot tub made few days stay so relaxing.
It was hard to tear our selves from house but when we did Vizslay winery for some bubbles was show walk away - John the owner was great.
We ventured in to town and had a great meal at Barn Diva.
All in All, the perfect get away from the city.
Only downside? Too short of a stay!
Next summer we will be booking Limerick Lane for an extra night or 2.
Pure Heaven. Go!
We stayed at this lovely Limerick Lane house for a wonderful weekend. The salt water pool is like sliding into silk sheets, soft, smooth and memorable. Every detail has been attended to, the kitchen is so smart and easy to cook in with the dining table nearby everyone joined in the culinary creation by our son who is a chef. The living room is serene and simple. The guest rooms are generous and gracious with comfortable beds and a discreet bathroom down the hall. The master suite was inviting and private with a terrific outdoor shower. We watch a film in the entertainment room and the surround sound was exciting to say the least. Our overall experience was so good we would like to move right in!! This property is one that actually kept us onsite most of the time; swimming and playing bocce ball into the twilight hours. Thank you for your Limerick Lane House!!
Limerick Lane is conveniently located in the world class destination of Healdsburg, CA. The home is just 3 miles south of the charming and historic downtown Healdsburg Plaza.
