Perfectly situated off a country road that winds through the heart of Sonoma Wine Country Paradise, surrounded by the area's leading wineries and restaurants, this 'Modern Barn' has been transformed into the perfect private getaway vacation home.
You will be thrilled when you enter the Zen Modern Barn -- Romantic, stylish, modern and peaceful all describe this special light-filled lofty space with high open beam ceilings, the warm rich colors and lovely furnishings, including a very comfy king-size bed. We have recently added an air-conditioning system for maximum comfort in the summer months. There is a completely new fully-equipped kitchen with stainless refrigerator, full-size gas range and dishwasher, too! Loaded with appliances including Microwave, toaster, blender, cooking supplies, etc. Enjoy one of your own gourmet meals with fresh produce and local wine as you gaze out the many doors and windows to the vineyard. Enjoy the flat-screen TV and Wi-Fi. Sit outside and enjoy the night sky or morning birdsong on your private patio
that looks out on our Japanese-style garden and the old oak, pine and redwood trees and vineyards beyond. Its a perfect place for your morning coffee or to enjoy that bottle of wine you bought when wine-tasting that afternoon!

Local Wineries: We are truly located in Wine Country Central, an ideal starting point from which to explore dozens and dozens of renowned wineries. Joseph Swan and Martin Ray are within .25 mile with numerous within a 5-10 minute drive. We can't begin to list time all but some of our favorites are Gary Farrell, Rodney Strong, Ferrari-Carano, Arista, Hop Kiln, Lynmar Estates, DeLoach, Dutton Estates, Kendall-Jackson,La Crema, Murphy-Goode and Merry Edwards. 20 minutes to the delights of charming downtown Healdsburg, less than 15 to Sebastopol and Santa Rosa, a few miles to the Russian River .

The Dry Creek Valley, Chalk Hill and Alexander Valley wineries are all just a short drive through some of the most gorgeous scenery anywhere. The only hard part is choosing which ones to visit!

Restaurants: Sonoma County has become renowned not only for its wineries but also for its food known for using many of the local fine ingredients to produce many an award-winning dining experience.

Wonderful restaurants in Graton include Willowood Cafe and Underwood. Zazu is a farm to table restaurant in downtown . The Farmhouse Inn is just minutes away and serves first-class fare in an elegant turn-of-the-century farmhouse. Willy's Wine Bar is fun, you can order Wine 'Flights' for your own private wine tasting while sampling delicious tapas dishes to pair. Peter Lowell's in Sebastopol is one of our favorites for great savvy awesome food in a hip casual environment. Lunch on the patio at Coppola in Geyserville overlooking the estate is a special experience. You can reserve space at the pool there too!

Home to the Slow Food movement, the surrounding countryside is dotted with fresh produce stands like Andy's Produce, local dairies and cheese.

Explore the Farm Trail vendors where everything from fresh eggs and homemade

Local Towns to Explore: The house is ideally located to explore many of charming and picturesque towns that surround the entire region. Of course, the well-known village of Healdsburg is great fun, as picturesque as a Disney movie set. Built around a classic country town square, explore the many shops, boutiques and wine tasting rooms after a fine lunch or dinner in one of many gourmet restaurants.

Downtown Graton is little more than a block long but on it are 3 great restaurants including Willowood Cafe, Underwood Bar & Bistro and Mexico Lindo Restaurant, also Mr Ryder's which a great antique store. After lunch just walk over to the West Regional Trail for a walk or a bicycle ride through the oak trees, past vineyards and the apple cider vinegar plant.

About 15 minutes away on the Bohemian Highway, tucked into the redwoods, is the charming west-Sonoma town of Occidental. Home to one of our very favorite restaurants - Hazel, where two wood-fired ovens turn out truly inspired rustic Mediterranean cuisine and pizza. The little town also has Negri's, an old-fashioned authentic Italian restaurant, numerous cafes and charming antique stores.
The town of Point Reyes, where you can stop for lunch, browse the remarkable bookstore or visit Cowgirl Creamery for ice cream or fresh cheeses, is about an hour's drive from the house and borders the Pt. Reyes National Seashore. If you are into nature, hiking ar canoeing this is a must! Hiking trails meander along the estuaries, through forest and across gentle hills where cattle graze. The birdlife is abundant with hawks, egrets, and herons among other shore birds.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2007

About: Though we are from the Bay Area but moved to Palm Springs almost 15 years ago to live and work our dream was always to have a place in Sonoma County. In 2007 we had sold a house in the desert and took a vacation to the Wine Country and stayed at at VRBO rental. Suddenly our dream seemed possible - we could buy our second home in Sonoma and rent it out too! Over the years we have renovated and improved pretty much every inch of the property, and most of our times there are "working holidays". But we truly love it and it has become the place where we so often celebrate wonderful dinners with friends and family. And we love that others are enjoying it too!
