Sacred Mountain Retreat offers majestic views of Volcan Mountain, our own 'Valley of the Moon' and unparalleled stargazing. This property takes you back to a more peaceful time and place.
The charming, ivy covered main cottage is comprised of three bedrooms and two bathrooms. There are hardwood floors and French windows throughout. The cottage has a sunny, fully equipped Viking kitchen with solid cherry countertops and a large European farm sink. The living area offers down-filled seating and a wood burning stove. The sumptuous master suite has a California King bed, separate sitting area and a private spa tub. All natural materials and white, crisp Egyptian cotton sheets ensure a peaceful nights rest. The bright and airy secondary bedroom has two full beds and ample closet space. The third bedroom has a queen bed and French doors that open out onto the enchanting, secret garden.
Steps away from the main cottage is a vine covered, two-story carriage house. The individual suites are fully equipped with refrigerators, coffee makers and half baths. The downstairs unit has a fantastic four-poster queen bed, farmhouse table, and private patio. The Zen inspired upstairs unit boasts a King bed and private sitting area.
The Wine Country inspired rustic barn is a treasure. An open floor plan, centered by a custom-made, solid Californian walnut table, invites you to dine with friends and family. The Viking kitchen is well equipped and a wood-burning fireplace is featured in the sitting area. The wraparound deck with stunning views of our “Valley of the Moon” and Volcan mountain is ideal for stargazing, yoga or just hanging out. A spiral staircase accesses the bedroom upstairs, which has a California king bed and a queen bed.
A long, private driveway, canopied by low hanging pistache trees, is your access to the gated property. There is a large Brazilian, rosewood deck in front of the main cottage with expansive vistas across the meadows to Volcan Mountain, encouraging guests to relax and enjoy the serenity. This private residence also provides a 40 foot saline pool and spa, Smith & Hawken teak furniture and a secluded entertainment area with barbeque. Half way up the stairs to the main deck there is a pool house, which has a stainless steel refrigerator/freezer, farmhouse sink, serving area and bathroom. Outside the pool house is an incredible outdoor rain head shower. The middle tier is home to the pool and an expansive, sweeping lawn area, flanked on one side by a grape and wisteria covered pergola. A custom-made iron & rustic wood dining table underneath seats 14 guests. The seasonal organic vegetable garden is in front of the sweet playhouse and wild French lavender bed. The lower tier has a horse barn, corral and sheltered pathways that meander through the ancient oaks. Abundant wildlife such as deer and wild turkey share these pathways with you.
Sacred Mountain Retreat sits on 61 majestic acres that offers many hiking trails where you will come across stunning plateau’s, spectacular vistas and sweeping views of the surrounding mountains all the way to the coast.
