This charming tri-level, contemporary home is centrally located within easy driving distance of highway 101 and centrally located for access to the Sonoma county and Napa county wine regions. The house is 2500 square feet and just 8 blocks from highway 12 where you can take the scenic drive to the majestic Sonoma coast, reaching Bodega Bay in 45 minutes. A slightly different route takes you to Russian River beaches or beautiful Lake Sonoma. Traveling in the other direction on highway 12 takes you to the lovely Sonoma Valley of the Moon and town of Sonoma. This property is also 6 blocks from Calistoga road, which will take you on a scenic drive over the mountain to Calistoga and the upper end of the Napa Valley. This comfortable home has all the amenities to make your stay a wonderful, relaxing and refreshing experience. This is a perfect accommodation for a weekend get-away, bachelorette parties, wine country weddings, a second home for families visiting for the holidays or week vacations.

Located in a quiet neighborhood on the eastern edge of Santa Rosa the house has been designed to let people have a shared experience while maintaining space for everyone. The house has vaulted ceilings with large windows in the living room and family room, that afford views of the spacious yard and surrounding hillside, a multi-leveled yard with private patios, and a pool, which is heated by a solar blanket in the spring, summer and fall. By the pool is a deck which invites you to enjoy a glass of wine or relax with a good book. At the upper end of the yard there is a meditation patio. The lower yard has a covered patio with a gas BBQ, a patio table and a small lawn area with vegetable and flowerbeds.

The entry hall looks out onto the yard and provides your first view of the inviting pool area. Bedrooms are located with privacy in mind to the left of the entry up a set of stairs. The master bedroom with a queen bed also has a walkway deck for viewing the surrounding hillsides and the sliding glass door provides a beautiful view of the morning sunrise. This bedroom also has a walk-in closet. The master bathroom has a stall shower and a sink area that is separate from the shower and toilet. The back bedroom has a queen bed and a wonderful large deck with a sun canopy. It overlooks the pool area and upper patio. The third bedroom has a full size bed and is located adjacent to a bathroom. This bathroom has a tub/shower and ample sink and counter area.

The lower part of the house is set up for entertaining with an ample living room complete with a wood-burning stove for ambience and heat. There is also a family room with a built-in bar and small table, flat screen TV, DVD player and video player and a collection of CDs, videos and music for your enjoyment. The lower area also includes the newly remodeled, fully equipped kitchen and adjacent dinning room, which comfortably seats ten guests. A laundry room and half bath complete the downstairs area.
