About the property

Well appointed home on 1 acre,3 BR, 2 Baths, Pool,Hot Tub,private yard!

My home is perfect for a family, 2-3 couples, or a friends

getaway to celebrate a birthday, wedding, bachelorette party, anniversary or other special occasion!

A short 5 minute drive from downtown Sonoma, this home is located in the coveted east side of town and

centrally located to many wineries in both Napa and Sonoma. The home was purchased and completely refurnished in 2012 with new beds, appliances, sofas, furniture, etc. including a remodeled barn for entertainment, new flagstone patio, pergola, new hardwood floors, and freshly painted bedrooms. We recently completely renovated in 2017 the kitchen and bathroom and pool! The new kitchen is well-equipped with pots, pans, serving platters, dishes, etc. Both bathrooms include walk-in showers. There's a large flat screen TV in the living room, flat screen in the master, and Blueray/DVD player in the living room with cable service including HBO. There's also WiFi (Wireless Internet) and a Sonos stereo system that allows you to control music from your phone or laptop and has two separate music areas (1 inside and 1 outside by the pool). The barn is recently remodeled and is outfitted with ping pong, darts, a pool table, foosball, stereo, and sofa. We have a blast out there!

Walking into the front door you'll immediately notice the openness of the floor plan, with a kitchen that opens up to the large living room that flows into the spacious dining room, making for a 'great room' for entertaining. The outdoor pool and patio is located off of the dining room and is equipped with a dining table, lounge chairs, a pergola for shade, and a festive string of outdoor lights set on a dimmer, perfect for eating, relaxing and entertaining. There is a second deck with a brand new hot tub (2014) and outdoor speakers. The gorgeous views from the outdoor area are towards the west and north (primarily to the west) with open fields, vineyards, a horse ranch and

mountains in the distance. The 3 bedrooms are located on the other side of the house, comprised of a master bedroom with king bed, tv, private bath (incl. walk-in shower), and private deck, and two guest rooms both

with queen beds that share a full (new) bathroom.

About Seth Israel

We live in San Francisco and love the wine country. Originally from the east coast, we have lived in San Francisco Bay Area for nearly 15 years.

Seth Israel purchased this house in 2012

Why Seth Israel chose Sonoma

Sonoma is a special place and this home has many of the key attributes that make this experience special - close to many wineries and attractions, beautiful peaceful views of adjacent farmland, vineyards, and hills, plenty of land to roam around, a classic barn for entertaining, and great indoor and outdoor space for relaxing. The pictures don't do the place justice!

What makes this house unique

The living areas - both indoor and outdoor - rural setting, beautiful views, spacious property, and central location make this place truly unique!

Fantastic Sonoma retreat

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at this beautiful wine country house. Just outside of town with all the amenities we needed. The chef’s kitchen is well stocked and open to the living room where our kids could watch movies while we prepared dinner. Dine indoors or outside by the pool, both are perfect settings. Watch the sunset in the hot tub. The barn has so many fun games; ping pong, foosball, darts, and a pool table.

The bedrooms are well appointed, super comfy beds.

The whole house is beautifully decorated. So comfortable, can’t wait to visit again!!!

Loved it. Location is perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We took a trip with 7 people and there was plenty of room. Kitchen/living area and main bath were rennovated beautifully. Open concept which was great for a large group. Loved the outdoor area too! Around the corner was Gundlach winery which was amazing. House was a little hard to find as it is off a busy road, down a private lane (we arrived in the dark in pouring rain). We would def stay there again! Thank you!

Great place for a family or group to get away

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house. The main house is well appointed and updated. It was also very comfortable, we felt at home. The rustic barn was great to fit a couple of more people and to hang out playing ping pong or pool (we didn't play pool). The location is fantastic. We were able to get to the center of Sonoma in a couple of minutes as well as venture out for day trips to parts of Sonoma and Napa very easily. We had a mix of ages from young kids to grandparents. Everyone loved the place. I cannot recommend it enough.

Gorgeous, perfectly located Sonoma house

  • 5 of 5

This house is in the perfect location for touring Sonoma and south Napa wineries and restaurants. It is beautifully decorated inside and has a very relaxing vibe outside with the deck, hot tub and pool areas. The house is ideal for 3 couples but we were able to squeeze in 4. I only wish we had more time at the house throughout the day to use the recreation barn, but the vineyards were calling!
