Property description

Tucked away & secluded 8,000 sq. foot stucco home constructed of thick strawbales in the classic Italianate manner, nestled at the end of a long meandering 3 mile country road passing cows & nature, the house is set amongst the oaks with sweeping views of Alexander Valley. Six bedrooms, 6 marble bathrooms, half bath with a sink from a Hamman from Istanbul.

The entrance graced by a cobble stone entering a classic rotunda reaching two stories; views down the valley & over coastal hills. Master suite w/ private balcony, elegant bathroom w/ double shower & tub. First floor has 13 foot ceilings. Two fireplaces grace the house, a formal living room & dining room; the other end a great room adjoining kitchen. House is centered around a gourmet kitchen with white Carrera marble counters, an 8 burner Wolff stove and two dishwashers. A gracious 60 foot pool surrounded on both sides by lush grass & lavender, patio w/ seating and dining area a butt south facing lawn.


Surrounding towns & wineries: Let me begin by describing the local towns that are near our house. Geysersville is a small town that was founded a hundred years ago to support the Italian grape growers and the sheep farmers. In this quaint town, an original family from Geyserville has returned to open a great family restaurant called Catelli’s and down the street is a fantastic pizza restaurant, Diavola. This town is 5 miles from our house & well worth a visit for the evening or lunch. The town of Healdsburg is 6 miles away from Geyserville and has become a hot bed for chefs looking for a new outlet. The well known chef Charlie Palmer opened Dry Creek Kitchen in the beautiful Healdsburg Hotel, Barndiva, Campo Fino, Scopa to name a few. There are too many wineries to name in the area but they can be found on the internet under Dry Creek and Alexander valley wineries. Francis Coppola just opened the newly renovated winery that used to house Souverian. It’s a gorgeous property and should be on your agenda, reservations are needed.

House and gardens: The house its self is quite unique & most individuals note when they arrive that the photos do not do it justice. The house is built of straw making it more similar to the construction one would find in Europe. The exterior walls are 3 feet thick with stucco on the outside and plaster on all the interior walls; the ceilings are 13 feet high. The house is surrounded by gardens, olive trees and grass as well as the natural setting of oak trees. The full length of the back of the house has a 60 foot pool with chaises & umbrellas on decks at each end.

Interior details: The first floor is entered through a vestibule paved with cobble stones. One enters into a rotunda that connects to the formal dining room and living room with a large fireplace. On the other end of the house is a great room featuring a seating area next to the kitchen that merges with the antique farm table set in front a second fireplace. The kitchen is very large, 200 square feet with a large prep island in the middle & three other working or serving counters. The kitchen is completely setup for individuals who love to cook and entertain guests. The first floor also features two bedroom suites on either end of the house.

Moving up the curved staircase on the outside of the rotunda, one will find four bedrooms, each with its one bathroom. The master bathroom is very large with two shower heads & a claw foot tub with views all the way down the valley. (830N certificate no.)
