Property description

Designed and hand built by Bryan Tedrick, the Moon House is a sculptural jewel situated in the heart of historic Glen Ellen. Uniquely curvilinear in form, this intimate space is an ideal location for adventuring in the Valley of the Moon.

Restaurants, a gourmet grocery, and the Jack London Saloon are within one block of the Moon House. Take walks in the neighborhood’s regional and state parks and peruse Jack London’s Beauty Ranch. Wineries abound and the Sonoma Mission at the Sonoma Plaza is just 15 minutes away.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1990

About the owner: Bryan Tedrick and I have two children, Nathalie, 29, and Jake, 26. I retired in 2013 after teaching at the local middle school for many years. Currently, I am working as an education consultant in the Valley. Bryan is a sculptor, working on his latest Burning Man commission. If you would like to see more of Bryan's work, check out his web site. Bryan also designed and built the Moon House. We purchased the property in 1990.

Why the Owner Chose Glen Ellen, CA, USA:
Although Bryan and I both grew up in the Bay Area, we always loved visiting the wine country - both the Napa and the Sonoma Valleys. After our daughter, Nathalie, was born, we decided that it was time to move away from the city and settle in a more rural area. We picked Glen Ellen for our home because we love the small town feel, yet it has all the conveniences of a larger city...our fabulous grocery store is just down the street, along with some terrific restaurants within walking distance. (Not to mention, my bank, my post office, and my hairdresser).

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We chose the specific location of our home and the Moon House because we are in the heart of the Sonoma Valley. Our home, and the Moon House, are on our quiet little street...but not far from the center of town.
