About the Property

3 Bedroom, 2.5 Baths (Sleeps 6 maximum)

Healdsburg Bliss House is a noted unofficial hillside landmark. This comfortable ranch style home is high up on a ridge above the stunningly gorgeous Dry Creek Wine Valley. Just 1.5 miles from downtown Healdsburg, the home is a blissfully peaceful escape surrounded by 80 acres of lush vineyards. The 100ft deck and expansive windows provide endless opportunities to take in the literally 100 mile-180 degree views of vineyards, forests, mountains, big skies and florid sunsets. Watch the hot air balloons rise to the south or the plumes of steam from The Geysers in the surrounding northeast mountains. Bring binoculars and check out the myriad of birds swooping by. Sunbathe or read on the deck, bbq while sipping wine and taking in the views. An outdoor dining table for 6 is a commanding location from which to dine and leisurely watch the sunset. The master suite opens to the deck and the spacious kitchen/dining/family great room has views as does the generous living room with rock hearth.

Bliss House Hillside Setting: This truly unique location is up a 1/4 mile shared paved drive which is in good condition and suitable for all types of cars. The property is not fenced and adjoins neighboring vineyard property and as such is not suitable for small children.

The setting backs up against rural wilderness area and thus is plush with wildlife...wild turkeys, deer, raccoons, wild pigs, etc. are all a part of the close to town but country lifestyle. As tempting as it may be, we encourage our guests-for their own safety to observe and enjoy the wildlife from a distance.

Bring the camera and the binoculars and no matter what season-warm outerwear as evenings can be cool. If guests are planning to walk, bring sturdy shoes.

The Weather: From April through August, most afternoons are pretty and bright with breezes. Mornings and nights are usually cool and sometimes the early morning fog comes in to kiss the grapes. Temperatures can range 30-40 degrees in a 24 hour period. September and October is almost always warm and there is less early morning mist or fog. However, there are don't forget the pullover or wrap. Even in winter, when we get the rains that make this such a lovely place...there are many many break through days with crisp sunshine.

Year Purchased: 1968

About: We are both are native Californians and retired teachers. My wife was born in Healdsburg and raised on the property before it was split into the winery and the vineyard properties.

Why Healdsburg, CA, USA:
The property was inherited from my father and was part of the property where I was raised and grew up. The view is great, the people are nice and the town is small and has a certain charm.
