About the Property
House, Two Bedrooms, Library/Media Room, 2 Full Baths, 1/2 Bath (Sleeps 4-6)
Open the front gate. Walk along the curvy flagstone path and up a few steps to the sunny front porch. Open the double French entrance doors and you will find a home that is beautiful, immaculate, and relaxing.
The 'Great Room' has high ceilings, stunning reclaimed wood floors, a gas fireplace, and comfortable leather seating. The dining area features an 8' long French farm table with seating for eight. The fully-appointed kitchen was designed for the gourmet chef and is perfect for entertaining.
The house has 2 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms. The master bedroom has a king-sized bed and ensuite bath. The upstairs bedroom has a queen bed and adjacent bath. Linens and tableware are luxurious. The library/media room, offering comfort and privacy, has a comfortable Queen sofa sleeper, 55' 'Smart' TV, gas fireplace, and adjacent half bath. Central heat/air conditioning and wireless internet are provided.
The house was built with our planet in mind. Green features include an on-demand hot water system, all Energy Star appliances, energy-efficient windows and walls, ceiling fans, and clean gas-burning fireplaces. The floors are custom Beech reclaimed from a former tobacco barn and 150-year old Midwest barn beams have been reused as fireplace mantels.
Outside is an award-winning garden that is a friendly haven for butterflies, birds, and gorgeous blooms accented by a softly burbling fountain.
Please check the calendar and terms before making inquiry. To be in compliance with City of Sonoma zoning regulations, we only rent for a minimum of 30 days. Thank you for understanding.

Year Purchased: 2008
About the owner: We live about an hour away from Sonoma. Our interests include photography, travel, art, reading, cooking, gardening, cycling, and, of course, wine! We designed and built this house in 2008 as our country retreat. We enjoy sharing it with others who love the wine country as we do. When we are at Chez Winnie, we enjoy some of the best wine tasting in the Valley, then walk to one of our favorite restaurants on the Plaza, perhaps watch a film at the Sebastiani Theater, and stop for ice cream on the walk home. It couldn't be better.
Why the Owner Chose Sonoma, CA, USA:
There are many beautiful vacation homes in Sonoma, but few capture the unique charm of life in the wine country like Chez Winnie -- and there are very few within walking distance of the Plaza. If we want an adventure, there are so many things to do. Sonoma County was the first wine region in California. It enjoys a 55 mile picturesque coastline, beautiful redwoods, and is dominated by established lineages of family-owned vineyards and wineries. Interestingly, approximately 35% of all Bay Area and Wine Country Michelin-rated restaurants are in our wine country.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
A new home on one of the most charming streets in Sonoma, a beautiful garden, and one block from wonderful restaurants, wine tasting, and shops. As a recent guest said, 'When you step inside, you will realize that this is much more than a place to stay; it's like living the Sonoma experience to the fullest.'
