This spacious Sonoma home is situated in prestigious Sobre Vista estates on 5+ acres with a gated driveway, solar heated pool and in-ground spa. The main house has a large kitchen with granite counters with an airy eat in table for the entire family/group to have breakfast while looking out on the garden and lawn. The adjacent dining room seats 16 with plenty of room surrounding for everyone to join in on elegant family meal while the living rooms offers expansive windows, a wood-burning fireplace, and a great place for relaxing.
In the main house, kids will enjoy their room (a twin over double bunk-bed plus a daybed with trundle) as well as the toys, games, bikes, and basketball hoop with plenty of space indoors to find a nook to play in. (We have 3 kids, so we get it!). The master bedroom is huge with a king size bed and an adjacent nook for additional sleepers, complete with its own jacuzzi bathtub and double headed shower. Two additional bedrooms look out onto the garden each with a queen size bed. The fully enclosed pool room functions as a 6th bedroom with two twin day beds and has its own attached bathroom. The
The guest house is just steps from the house and has a king size bed with a separate living room, its own kitchen and bathroom with a walk in shower. (extra sleeping mats in the closet)
In addition, separate from the house and away from the noise of the pool is a private office complete with a desk, wifi, printer/scanner and plenty of shade, for those of you who just can’t seem to get away completely.
Our charming stables give it that unique Sonoma flair to make sure that you know you are not in the city, but alas the property does not come fully equipped with horses.
We’ve worked hard to make this house both beautiful and comfortable and hope you enjoy it as much as we do. The large gathering spaces and the flexible sleeping arrangements, make it perfect for couples vacations, girls’ getaways, family gatherings, holidays, or to allow everyone to stay and gather for nearby winery weddings.
We’re surrounded by wineries for those wanting to go tasting or just step out the door and go on a short hike to the Sobre Vista lake with vistas over the valley and a plenty of ducks to make it worth your while. Borrow our bikes for a short ride into Glen Ellen (1 mile away) or to Sonoma Plaza (4 miles away) or to the Sonoma Country Club golf course (1 mile away) or drive over to Infineon Raceway (12 miles) if you are so inclined. Or just sit by the pool…

Owner purchased this Chateau / Country House in 2010
Why Owner chose Eldridge
We purchased this property so we could host events for our extended family that live throughout California and the Bay Area. The house is conveniently located to many fun and interesting attractions that provide entertainment for all generations. We strive to keep the house stocked with activities for young and old.
What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
A few things that set this property apart: 1) We are close to Sonoma Square and very accessible to all locations throughout the County. You wont be driving for 25 minutes just to get to the main road! 2) We know how important it is to stay connected. Unlike many homes in Sonoma we are on cable internet by Comcast/Xfinity so our internet is screaming fast with access points extended throughout the property. 3) We have converted our pool to a saltwater system so significantly fewer chemicals. Also our spa is attached to the pool which means it gets cycled with the pool water everyday resulting in a much cleaner, healthier spa experience than detached spas. 4) We have recently (2018) upgraded our HVAC system so that the house heats rapidly and we have airconditioning throughout the main house and guest house.

Five stars is not enough to give this lovely home and property. We enjoyed it immensely. The house and grounds are immaculately maintained. The guest house was the perfect place for my husband and I to stay. The rest of the families stayed in the main house. So much to do for the kids; toys, bikes, batting cage, swimming pool. A beautiful large dining table easily accommodated all of us. And very close to Sonoma and great wineries.
Perfect Family Get-Away
The place we perfect for our family get-away which included three families! Very relaxing weekend, kids had a blast too!
Although we stayed on this property in the middle of winter, it does have a great location. Had the weather been warmer we would have been able to utilize the beautiful backyard and swimming pool. The interior of the home could use some updating to make it feel like a luxurious retreat. On the plus side, the owner was very accommodating and did allow us to come in early to decorate for my daughter's birthday.
Thanks Nancy - Glad you enjoyed your stay and while great year around the spring, summer and fall are particularly nice. We continuously update and improve the interior and exterior areas. Our big upgrade in April, 2018 was to add a new heating and air-conditioning systems so we have AC throughout the main house and guest house.
We loved this house!
We stayed here for a birthday celebration with a total of 12 people. The house and property are beautiful. The house is spacious and comfortable. There was a huge table in the dining room that fit all of us, and had room for more. We loved sitting around the table playing games. The backyard was beautiful! We sat outside multiple times and enjoyed the scenery.
There are lots of things to do that are close to the house, it really is in the perfect location.
Paul was easy to work with, and responded to my questions quickly.
I would definitely rent this place again, and would recommend this house to others.
Thanksgiving in Glen Ellen
We had our larger family (including our dog) get together in Glen Ellen this Thanksgiving.
It was great (even after the fires).
The house was spacious and our girls had the best time whether it was playing in the expansive yard, hanging out in the hot tub or baking.
Would recommend highly.
The online description for this property does not accurately describe how gorgeous and massive this property is. This property consists of one huge main house, a guest house (complete with 1BR, a kitchen, living space and full bath) and even a separate office house with two cots. We fully enjoyed the firepit and the pool/spa. This space is great for entertaining with a nice kitchen and massive dining room table. I would highly recommend it!
We are located approximately five miles from Sonoma Square and three miles from Glen Ellen. The house is conveniently located to main roads so you will not be spending time driving back and forth up and down winding side roads!
