About the Property
3 BR, 2 1/2 BA, sleeps 8. Solar pool/spa open mid-April to mid-November.
Our home is just 3 miles (5-10 minutes) from Healdsburg Plaza and its variety of restaurants, tasting rooms, shops and galleries. It is also practically at the very center of the extraordinary Northern Sonoma wine country, just minutes from the Russian River, Dry Creek, and Alexander Valleys. In fact, there are over 150 tasting rooms within a 10 mile radius - making this an outstanding home base for your Sonoma Wine Country vacation. The house is also only about 40 minutes from outstanding wineries at the northern end of the Napa Valley for those seeking even more variety.
The property offers a variety of features and activities to enhance your wine country vacation when your not out wine tasting or enjoying the other pleasures of Northern Sonoma County.
Our home is around a bend at the end of a country road that dead ends at our automated gate. Outdoors, you can relax by the solar heated, salt water swimming pool (open from mid-April through mid-November), and warm up at night by the wood burning fire pit surrounded by fragrant lavender. Or enjoy your morning coffee under our covered gazebo next to our vegetable garden and near our fruit and olive tree orchard. The property is richly landscaped, with lush front, rear, and side gardens and a manicured front lawn. We also have a young hobby Cabernet vineyard at the very front of the property, which hopefully will begin producing fine Sonoma County wine this year! There is a basketball hoop above the garage where you can practice your jump shot, or brush up on your ping pong skills on our indoor/outdoor table.
Indoors, the home is equipped with central air conditioning, central heating, and wifi Internet access. Our fully-equipped kitchen is stocked with practically everything you could possibly need to prepare a gourmet meal. The kitchen has a stainless steel GE refrigerator and dishwasher, Jenn Air range, granite tile counter tops, as well as the full array of kitchen essentials. For wine lovers there is lead-free crystal glassware and a dishwasher safe decanter. We also have a full array of unbreakable dishes and wine glasses suitable for outdoor use. The pantry is stocked with spices and other cooking staples to make preparing your meals at the house an easy and pleasant experience.
In an open floor plan, the kitchen opens to the dining room which seats 8 and to the den. The den has a comfortable modern sectional, a 43” ultra high definition LED television with DirecTV, and a Sonos sound bar for streaming your favorite music.
Or you can sit back and watch a movie on our home-theater equipped living room, with its 7.1 surround sound, 55 inch flat screen HDTV, Blu-Ray/DVD player, and Sonos component. The living room also has a wood burning fireplace to provide additional warmth on cool Sonoma County nights.
The master suite has a king sized bed and a private bath with a double vanity, whirlpool tub and separate shower, and a Sonos speaker. The other 2 bedrooms each have queen sized beds, and all the bedrooms are equipped with custom Elfa closet storage. In the hallway, you’ll find the second bath, which has a shower/tub combination and dual vanity. An additional ½ bath is accessible through the laundry room next to kitchen. The laundry room is equipped with a front-loading LG washer and dryer.
By the pool is a set of outdoor speakers powered by a Sonos amplifier.
Enjoy the best of both worlds - the privacy and tranquility of the country just minutes from Healdsburg Plaza!!!
