About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5+ Baths, (6- 8 People max) 5 min from Ledson Winery!

We are just 5 minutes from the wonderful LEDSON winery and castle, perfect for picnics and wine tasting. The fires did not affect our home - AT ALL! Please read our reviews, they speak for themselves! This home is perfect for mature couples, families with kids, multifamilies, reunions, or an adult retreat-ABSOLUTELY NO PETS! Sorry. With 4 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms, this luxury 2900 square foot home is located in a quiet neighborhood, on a hill-offering beautiful mountain and distant vineyard views. The house is only five miles from the heart of Sonoma Valley wine country, with famous wineries including Ledson, Kunde, St. Francis, Matanzas Creek, Chateau Souvreign and Paradise Ridge. Our home is conveniently located near the highly regarded scenic Highway 12, which will lead you to Kenwood in 5 minutes, and Sonoma Square in 25 minutes. Each guest is greeted by a personal concierge who will answer any questions you have about the house and your stay and will offer a chilled bottle of wine upon arrival!

Our gourmet kitchen is well loved by many of our past guests (see reviews). We have Thermador professional grade cooktop, a convection oven/ microwave, plus two additional ovens, two dishwashers, and a subzero refrigerator. The kitchen is beautifully apppointed with granite counters, brazillian cherry cabinetry and maple hardwood flooring throughout. The kitchen is fully stocked with all the basic cooking ingredients, spices, oils and utensils. Perfect for those of you who enjoy cooking. In the bedrooms where each room is themed, you will find European Cotton, 500 thread count sheets,(We received tons of compliments about how comfy our beds are) and iPod docking stations/alarm clocks. In each bathroom, we have wine country soaps, lotions, as well as Shampoo and blowdryers. The Master Bedroom, with dark hickory wood flooring, and beautiful artwork, has double french doors opening to views from both sides of the room, with a bathroom that has a double head shower, a large 2 person soaking tub and heated tile floors.

We have a play structure for the kids, and 2 outdoor eating areas to seat 8 people. One is a BBQ area with views off the deck, the other is a relaxing gazebo area. The house backs up to Howarth and Annadel parks, as well as Spring Lake, which are sought after by the locals for challenging mountain biking trails, with great areas for family walks, hikes or jogging. You can also rent Kayaks at the park and Kayak through the lakes. For those with kids, you can walk to the park in minutes where you will find a train ride, carousel, horse back rides, and a petting zoo in the summer months. Less than a mile away, you will find a quaint plaza with Mary's Pizza Shack, The Union Hotel Restaurant, The East West Cafe (which serves a great breakfast), and an old fashioned movie theater. Further down, you will find Montgomery Village with its fabulous coffee shops, restaurants, a yogurt parlor, and unique shopping. For those who like to walk, you can walk to Union Hotel restaurant (awesome Italian food), a yogurt shop, and a starbucks-- less than a mile away.

The house is perfect for anyone who appreciates electronics. It is equipped with an amazing indoor/ outdoor sound system (dock your ipod, or use our ecclectic CD collection) that can be heard at the BBQ area and Gazebo; as well as throughout the house. We have a Bluray player which will allow you free access to Pandora Radio, and you can listen to virtually any type of music. Each area has it's own volume control, so rooms can be turned up, down, or off, to tailor to your personal preferences. House has 3 Tv's, 2 of which are brand new high def, and 3 dvd players.

Be sure to enjoy our amazing and private tree lined hot tub with a glass of wine, at the end of those longs days of sightseeing! We even have a couple of robes to snuggle up in.

For those of you big city folks, San Francisco is an hour south, and Bodega Bay ocean with it's gorgeous coast line is just 35 minutes from here. There is so much to do! Use this home as your headquarters to all of Northen California wineries. We are close to EVERYTHING!!

Please remember that if you would like me to assist, I can arrange a limousine wine tour of the closest wineries, as well as an in -home massages, or...private catering. I have reliable and wonderful connections in these areas and would love to help you plan that special weekend! I can also arrange daily gym passes to a fitness club if that is your desire.

We have a limit of 8 people per visit due to the common courtesy of our neighbors, so no large parties, or receptions.

Keywords: LUXURY HOME! This is truly a great home. In a beautiful park like setting just minutes from famous wineries, Glen Ellen, Kenwood, Healdsburg, and Sonoma. You can make this your headquarters for wine tasting as the location is right at the beginning of the Highway 12, which is a designated 'scenic route' that is sprinked with some of the best wineries: Ledson, St Francis, Kunde, and Chateau Souvreign (these wineries are less than 10 minutes from the house). This house backs up to Howarth Park, and is adjacent to Annadel park - both are nature reserves with sought after biking and running trails. The house has a play structure for the kids, and is ideal for adults, friends, and families. We also have a beautiful tree lined, hot tub area with complimentary robes, for end of the day relaxation, and 2 outdoor eating areas, 2 grassy areas, and a Gazebo.

About Lisa

My husband and I moved to Santa Rosa, in 2002, and immediately fell in love with this house. We enjoy being right in the middle of wine country, with all its nature and beauty. We began raising our kids here and chose the home because of all the nature around us, its proximity to the beach and Annadel park reserve, San Francisco and of course very easy access to all of the regions beautiful wine country. We decided to keep this lovely home, and our goal is to make it wonderful for your stay!!! This is why I strive for ONLY FIVE STAR REVIEWS!!!!!

Lisa purchased this estate in 2002

What makes this estate unique

The location of this home is perfect because it is close to the amenities of a city, and also right in the heart wine country. We are five minutes from the first winery, (Ledson), and five minutes from my favorite locally supplied market (Olivers). I love the privacy and views this home offers!

Guestbook comments from the owner

“We had such a wonderful time during our stay for the Levi's Gran Fondo cycling event. The house is amazing and the views are incredible. 5 star accommodations and our only regret is that we could not stay longer. This place books quickly for a reason as its one of the best places available. Hope to stay here again in the future if we come back to Santa Rosa.”

Comfortable Base for Touring

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful visit at this delightful property. The instructions to get to the house and for entry were very easy and Kimberly showed us around and gave some helpful advice for shopping and the like.

The house itself was very comfortable for our family of five adults and one child. The kitchen is well equipped and if you are interested in preparing meals you will have everything at your convenience. The house is very close to the Annandel State Park great for walks. They also have a nice outdoor kids play area which our grandson took great pleasure in. There is also a hot tub and bbq outside for your use. The pictures on line are accurate and give a good depiction of what you will have. It was a lovely haven to return to after a day of touring and visiting places of interest. We will definitely visit again.

On a personal note our hearts go out to all the families who have suffered loss because of the fires in the area. We wish all in Santa Rosa and adjoining areas a speedy recovery.

Very nice and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The property was very nice and close to town. We especially liked the hiking trail that began almost across the street from the house. The manager was very responsive to any inquiries we had during our stay. I would definitely recommend this house.

comfortable home, quiet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

This house is very spacious, cozy, comfortable and is pretty much as advertised. It's close to several nice restaurants and shops. Lots of wineries a short drive away (within 15 miles). The best thing about the house is that it's in a very quiet neighborhood.

We liked the layout of the house; the rooms are well arranged for family living.

Family girls wine weekend

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for a long weekend to celebrate my grand daughters' 21st birthday. I was hoping it would be conveniently located for an easy drive to Napa and Sonoma valley wineries and I was not disappointed! Lovely quiet setting and a quick drive through the hills to get to Calistoga and St Helena. We all loved the house, plenty of room for the 7 family women that went for the weekend. I definitely would recommend this to others looking for the quiet setting of Santa Rosa and the easy access to all the wine regions.
