About the Property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Approaching on a winding private drive lined with ancient live oaks, its own vineyard of mature zinfandel grapes to the right, guests arrive at this soulful estate magically sited on 8 acres overlooking Bennett Valley, just minutes from the famed Valley of the Moon and the amenities of Santa Rosa.

There are about 3 level acres and 5 acres of wooded trails, creeks, and exploration. If you and your group appreciate privacy, and “artisan luxury”, we think you will love our house and grounds.

Tall glass walls offer light and views of the natural gardens, vineyard, and fruit orchard, while relaxing in contemporary luxury. The lower level of the home features slate and maple flooring, ancient fir beams, an open living room with hearth and woodstove, spacious dining, Mexican tile kitchen, and a great room with stone fireplace, entertainment kitchen and French doors leading to outdoor deck, expansive, level lawn. Two of the five bedrooms are on the lower level. Make your way across the lawn and there, tucked into a private benched terrace surrounded by a woodland grove, lies an artful pool with stone spa and large patio area.

Cascade stairs lead to the second floor balcony overlooking cathedral ceiling living room. A master bedroom with skylights, King bed and room to spare, a large private bedroom with Queen bed and views of the valley, a loft bedroom for 2, especially fun for kids. The second floor bath has a fabulous Victorian claw foot tub and shower, mosiac tiles and lots of room for candles and music!

This is not a party house. We do not allow events of parties of any kind. Sorry!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: We are a family of four who live in San Francisco, and we bought the property in 2008 to have a very accessible weekend getaway for us and our two boys.

Why the Owner Chose Santa Rosa, CA, USA:
We bought this property because the minute we arrived, the sense of being in the country, in nature, and of becoming utterly relaxed, hit us. While the main grounds are quite well maintained, the fact that the property also has creeks and trails, frogs, a huge seesaw and ropeswing, and hundreds of oaks, was very appealing to my boys and me for exploring and getting dirty.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
very tranquil and peaceful and still, but if you need to you can hop in the car, and zip to a Safeway and a Starbucks for a couple things in ten minutes.
