Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Winchmore House is a beautiful blend of Victorian and Craftsmen inspired architecture, located in Santa Rosa, the very heart of Sonoma County’s world renowned wine country with easy access to Healdsburg, Sonoma, Alexander Valley and Dry Creek Valley. Nestled along the banks of Spring Creek, our home offers something for everyone seeking a wine country vacation.

Santa Rosa provides the perfect hub for visiting more than three hundred Sonoma County wineries as well as easy driving distance to the Napa Valley, and only sixty minutes to San Francisco.

Within a 10 minute walking distance, you will find Montgomery Village with boutique shops, banks, a post office, a large grocery store and fine restaurants.

Our beautiful home offers a charming ambiance, while equipped with modern conveniences. Built in 1992, and recently updated. At the end of a private driveway, in a quiet desirable neighborhood, our home is situated on approximately one third acre and offers approximately 2875 square feet of living area. Nearby Spring Creek creates the backdrop for the gardens and plentiful mature trees.

Upon entering, via the large covered front porch, you arrive in the expansive entry hall with a grand redwood staircase and oak floors that continue throughout most of the first level. Beyond the entry hall, lies the living room with a wood burning fireplace, built-in bookcases and stately redwood columns. The large dining room with redwood paneled walls, features leaded glass windows looking out towards the back gardens and Spring Creek. The kitchen and nook area offer additional views of the garden and a lovely patio seating area accessible by two sets of French doors. The fully equipped kitchen has wide plank pine floors, stainless steel appliances, and a large butcher block island for easy meal preparation or gathering around for a glass of wine. Also on the ground floor is a large bedroom with a queen size bed conveniently located across the hall from the downstairs bathroom with pedestal sink, tub and shower. Near the bathroom is the laundry room with a full size washer and dryer.

The second level of the home offers three bedrooms; the first features a unique leaded glass window with a full size bed. Further down the hall we have the large, master bedroom with queen bed, as well as a gas burning fireplace. The master bathroom offers two pedestal sinks, a large jetted tub, separate shower, a toilet room and travertine stone floors, as well as a walk-in closet between the master bedroom and the master bathroom. The third upstairs bedroom at the back of the house overlooking the inviting gardens comes furnished with a queen bed, and is conveniently located next to the upstairs hall bath.

Our warm Mediterranean-like climate invites our guests to sit outside in the evening enjoying a wonderful home cooked meal with family and friends after a day of wine tasting. On Saturday mornings is the nearby Farmers Market with all types of locally grown fruits and vegetables, meats, fish and artisan cheeses.

Among activities for the children (or children at heart), canoeing on the Russian River, Safari West game preserve and Train Town in Sonoma, a 30 minute drive to the Sonoma Coast are a few of the many choices.

Guests may choose from a wide variety of acclaimed restaurants in the surrounding areas such as John Ash, Bistro 29, The Girl and the Fig, and many others.

We are centrally located within easy driving distance of the rugged Sonoma coast and the scenic Lake Sonoma. Go hot air ballooning, or just enjoy a good book in our garden.

Winchmore House has free high speed internet Wi-Fi access.

At night take in your favorite television programs on our large flat screen high definition TV.

We sleep seven comfortably but can accommodate up to eight.

Owners live in an apartment next to the house.

This peaceful setting is the perfect retreat for families, wine lovers and weekend getaways.

No parties of any type.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for our stay at your wonderful home. Our family enjoyed our visit with extended family from Spain. This is an ideal spot and was more than we expected. We hope to return again while visiting Wine Country, especially Malm Cellars!

The perfect home for large groups!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with a few other couples for a wedding up in Sonoma county. What a gem! This place is huge and had a lot of character. The perfect place to stay with a large group, everyone had plenty of space. Thank you! :)

Lovely Santa Rosa property

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our stay at Winchmore House. This large and beautiful home accommodated 7 adults and a baby beautifully. We especially loved the large kitchen and lovely outdoor spaces.

Everything was clean and things we needed, like tons of towels were well supplied. The owners were nearby and available should we need them.

Relaxing Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the house and felt at "home" right away. The layout and spaciousness was perfect for our 2 couples and teenager, with plenty of privacy for everyone. We also enjoyed the peaceful backyard--as others have said in their reviews, it's surprisingly quiet and peaceful, yet so close to main streets and amenities!

Would love to return to this house for our next wine country visit!

Great property in a good central Santa Rosa location

  • 4 of 5

The Winchmore House served as a great base for a family visit to Santa Rosa. Spacious and comfortable...it accommodated our group of 5 adults and two small kids very well. The layout of the home offered everyone "space"...and the outside property was very enjoyable. One note...our visit happened to occur during the first summer "heatwave"...and the house does not have air conditioning.....so we had to make do with fans. Otherwise, a great option for a large family gathering.
