Set on over an acre of peaceful country property in the heart of Sonoma Valley, this wine country retreat is a private getaway. The freeform, saltwater pool, outdoor barbecue romantic get away or a shared family vacation. The extensive grounds of our country cottage make it suitable for family vacations, girls weekends, or any weekend get-a-way for a group of friends.
Get a taste of wine country living by cutting fresh lavender and roses from our flower gardens to decorate your dinner table. Pick fruit in season from Pear, Plum and fig trees, add island, and multiple patios create a beautiful backyard setting with view of the neighboring vineyards. Make it a cozy color and flavor to your salads with tomatoes and herbs from our organic, raised bed gardens. Sip wine and drink in the view of some of the wine country’s most beautiful sunsets from the back deck or under the shade trees. Later, you’ll want to experience why Sonoma is called the “Valley of the Moon”. Grab a sweater and wait for the stars to come out. Far from the city lights they light up the sky and magnify the full moon until it appears you can reach out and touch it.
Just 2 miles from the Town of Sonoma and the Historic Sonoma Plaza you will experience the “country feel” but still be close to town and restaurants. Inside you will find a fully appointed kitchen with granite counters that is open to the family room. With hardwood floors, a stone fireplace and vaulted ceilings, you can enjoy beautiful views and sunsets from the french doors or the back deck. Entertain and relax by the pool, outdoor BBQ and private, fenced yard. Play Ping Pong or Bocci ball in the back lawn or read your favorite novel in the quiet, private setting.
With four bedrooms, the home sleeps 8 comfortably. There are two master suites with King beds, each with a private bath, and one with a cozy window seat and french doors to the deck and pool area. The third bedroom has a Queen Bed and shares a hall bath with the fourth bedroom that has two twin beds, the twin beds can seamlessly be converted to a third King bed.
Take advantage of the formal dining room for entertaining or share more informal meals and snacks at the counter and in the family room or on the patio by the pool.
