Located off a peaceful country lane on thirteen private acres, Longfield is surrounded by vineyards and farms, with 40 wineries within 5 miles. Healdsburg is 15 minutes away. Longfield is a modern farmhouse with luxury finishes and extensively landscaped grounds, pool, bocce court, firepit, outside dining arbor and sunken hot tub - all with beautiful views. The multi-year project has been a labor of love for the owners and a team of leading designers. Our goal has been to create a place where you can relax, play and explore. Centrally located close to Healdsburg and near the Russian River, Longfield is an hour's drive North of San Francisco, and only 15 minutes from the center of Santa Rosa.
It may come as no surprise that Longfield has been chosen by multiple home design firms as a desired location for product photo shoots.
Longfield is a place for families, couples and friends looking to spend time in the peace and tranquility of Sonoma. We do not host Weddings, or groups looking to play music outside. It's a quiet, beautiful place.
Having rented from others, we know your choice of rental property is an important one. Email us or call us with your questions at 415 602 7967/415 509 6651.
We recommend you start by reading out Guest reviews. Everyone of our Guests has provided us with extraordinarily positive feedback on our property, and on their stay. We always ask Guests 'How could things be better?', we listen, then we work to make things even better. We have also rented out our house for photo shoots by leading interior design and furniture companies, including Williams Sonoma. Our home has also be sought out for Hollywood productions (although we declined!).

GARDENS AND LAND
Longfield is surrounded by farms, trees and vineyards. The property has 13 acres of land, all flat. A small stream runs though the property with a large pond (there is a fence separating the pond from the house). The main house area includes a barn, bocce court, 50' pool and cabana with outdoor shower. A sunken hot tub sits to the West located for stunning sunset views. The gardens around the house have been landscaped with mulberry, coastal oak trees, a fruit orchard and a vegetable garden. Towering 40 year old oak trees provide privacy and a stunning setting.
A pergola area with outside dining and seating is just off the swimming pool. A bocce court provides guests with entertainment. The pond contains big-mouthed bass for fishing. The pool is appointed with four loungers (and a large umbrella) for relaxing, eating and spending time with friends and family.
The 50' saline swimming pool is solar heated and located just off the patio. The pool is heated April through October. The pool has a lockable cover. The pool is solar powered, and heats up wonderfully during the Summer months. Earlier/later in the season the water will be at lower temperatures, depending on the climate/days of sunlight. An adjacent bluestone patio deck is the perfect place for relaxing and entertaining.
A separate building next to the pool (with sink/WC] is for changing and outdoor shower. An international-sized bocce court - 70' X 12' with Italian designed bocce balls is just off the master bedroom.
Our library comes with books and board games for adults and children. The family and living rooms both have two large flat panel TV's and stereo. The house comes with a Sonos music system (requiring guests to have a digital music collection on their phones or computer in addition to a Sonos App on their phones). For those without Sonos, we have a CD player and collection of CD's.
You can walk to the local winery just down the lane, or stroll pass vineyards in the surrounding properties, or past the adjoining fields with horses and cows.
