Property description

Originally built for two families, wine country getaway is perched on Trinity Mountain overlooking Sonoma's beautiful 'Valley of the Moon'. Open the front doors and you are hit with a magnificent view, maximized by picture windows and an expansive deck.

The generous living room has high beamed ceilings and opens up to the dining room and full kitchen, creating a spacious, cohesive environment. The living room has a 70' flat screen TV with DVD player, satellite TV, and Sonos stereo system. The dining room has a table that can accommodate 10 people. The deck off the kitchen has a gas BBQ grill. Free wireless high-speed internet is available throughout.

The home has two wings off the main living room, with each wing containing both a master and large guest bedroom. All four bedrooms have stunning views, king or queen size beds, private bathrooms, and sliding doors that lead out onto a deck. The two master bathrooms have dual showers and the guest bathrooms have shower/tub combinations. Three of the four bedrooms have walk in closets.

The swimming pool is a short walk past the grape vines and garden. It is surrounded by another oversized deck appointed with plenty of lounges, chairs and sun umbrellas. The pool overlooks the property’s 200 olive tree orchard and another spectacular mountain/valley view. From the pool or the main deck you can enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning as you watch the valley below wake up, or a glass of wine at the end of the day as you watch the sun sink below the mountains and witness a breathtaking sunset.

With a beautiful drive in either direction, you are 8 minutes from the Sonoma Valley and 18 minutes from the Napa Valley. From this dazzling property you can take advantage of all the activities, sites, wineries, and restaurants the wine country has to offer . . . or simply come and relax. Great for families, couples, company retreats, or a guys/gals weekend away, and just an hour from San Francisco. Please note, weddings and loud parties (of any type) are not permitted at this property. Due to the configuration of the driveway we do now allow 'stretch' limousines to come to the home. Property manager is in separate residence on site.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1994

About the owner: The home is owned by two families who live in San Francisco. The families have kids who were young when the home was purchased and who are now all in college. The home is managed by another family member who lives in a separate home on the property. The family all participate in gardening and other projects around the house when they visit, as well as in the yearly olive harvest which yields around 500 pounds of olives and makes some of the best olive oil ever.

Why the Owner Chose Glen Ellen, CA, USA:
We wanted to find a wonderful home that was close to San Francisco yet felt like it was a world away. We have discovered and love the little town of Glen Ellen and are great fans of the Sonoma Valley.
