Overview

About the property

Mod. farmhouse, 13 acres/vineyard views, 4 bed/4 bath, for 9, pool/bocce/hot tub

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!).

The house sleeps up to nine guests and features a master suite with king bed, second master suite with queen bed, guest room with queen bed and a twin sized day bed, and another guest room with two twin beds. In addition to a large barn, property highlights include a 50' swimming pool, changing room with outdoor shower, large pond, fruit orchard and full-sized bocce court.

Our house combines the beautiful Sonoma countryside with stunning architectural design and reclaimed wood from local 100 year old farm buildings. Longfield is the ultimate retreat for couples, families and guests.

The house does not have AC, but does have ceiling fans in the upstairs bedrooms and a floor floor for use in the Master bedroom. Even with high temperatures in the valley, the area commonly experiences cool breezes in the afternoons.

FIRST FLOOR

The kitchen and family room has been designed to be both functional and relaxing. The gourmet kitchen has high end appliances, a large center island with stools, in addition to a large kitchen table with 10 chairs. Views look South to the garden and fields. The family room is adjacent to the Kitchen - the ideal area for reading, watching TV or listening to music. We have a reading room just off the kitchen, with intimate wood paneling and views of the surrounding landscape.

The living room features twin oversized sofas, a reclaimed (non-working) wooden clad fireplace, interesting curios and TV/media.

The library comes stacked with books and provides guests with cozy seating, fireplace and views to a field with cows and vineyard.

The master bedroom suite has gorgeous views of fields, vineyards and trees to the West and to the South. A king sized bed looks out onto the deck, patio, bocce court and pool. The gracious bathroom has a large soaking tub, shower and two separate sinks.

SECOND FLOOR

The second floor has a second master bedroom suite, with an additional two bedrooms and family bathroom. Industrial ceiling fans are in all rooms, with a dedicated climate control system. Barn door closets are in all bedrooms.

The second bedroom suite has a queen sized bed, writing desk and barn door closets. A large private bathroom, with freestanding soaking tub, shower and two sinks provides guests with a place to relax.

The North bedroom has a 4 poster queen bed, antique desk and twin day bed. The South bedroom has two twin beds. A family bathroom has a large shower and two sinks.

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.

ACTIVITIES

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. The house is ideally situated for Russian River bike riding or kayaking. Good public golf courses are nearby. We have plenty of flat land for children to run around, play soccer. The entire 13 acres is completely fenced.

About Andrew Brown

We live in San Francisco and purchased Longfield early in 2012. We have spent the time since then creating our ideal getaway. Kirsten likes to spend time in the vegetable garden, Andrew likes to swim with the boys and watch the sun set with a glass of local Pinot.

Andrew Brown purchased this estate in 2012

Why Andrew Brown chose Santa Rosa

13 private flat and all usable acres, with incredible views - a rarity in Sonoma County. We jumped on the property as soon as we saw it. Kirsten's parents have been in the Region for decades.

A Gem of a Property!!!

  • 5 of 5

This house is a gem! We came with friends for a long weekend (4 nights) and everyone was so impressed with the house. It is even better than the pictures and feels like a family home - spacious, yet comfortable and cozy at the same time. The kitchen is central to the house and entertaining and has all the essentials that you need to cook gourmet meals. We even had a chef one night and he thought the kitchen was well stocked. The bedrooms are perfectly appointed and bathrooms are fresh with great finishes. The furnishings in the house are all great and interesting as well. The pool is stunning and overlooks part of the property. It is a very quiet and relaxing setting. We enjoyed each and every part of the house and will definitely be back! The location is great too - close to both Santa Rosa and Healdsburg for great restaurants and wine tasting.

Exceeded Expectations

  • 5 of 5

Wow and wow! We have a group of 8 very particular ladies that travel all over California striving to stay at the perfect house and boy did Longfield deliver. Every detail is perfect from the art, to design to linens to the outdoor space and amenities. So many great spaces to hang out with a group from kitchen to bocce to pool and the two master suites.

Working with Andrew was easy and he went above and beyond with a couple of special requests that he was able to accommodate. We even cancelled our schedule bike riding excursion because you literally never want to leave the house. Thank you for providing the perfect venue to create a magical weekend.

gracious and perfectly appointed estate property

  • 5 of 5

we recently stayed at longfield sonoma while in napa for the weekend. i could not say enough great things about this property. it is a well appointed estate with all of amenities one might want. the floor plan is very gracious and accommodated our group of 7-9 persons very well. the grounds are gorgeous and we enjoyed dining often in the outdoor pergola. the pool and hot tub are well placed on the property, offering spectacular views of vineyards beyond. we enjoyed many games of bocce and walks around the property.

we even gathered apples that had fallen to the ground from the resident orchard and made homemade apple butter. andrew [owner] was most helpful and very responsive during the time leading up to our stay, during and after. i have stayed at many properties and this will go down as the best one ever! we will definitely be back. thanks!!

Great house for Girls weekend

  • 5 of 5

I just stayed here for the weekend for a mellow girls weekend. The house is PERFECT. I do a lot of vacation rentals and am very picky about hotels and rentals, but this house was amazing. It looks even better than the pictures show it to be, which is very rare. It was beautifully decorated, you could tell a lot of thought went into the layout and look of the house. The house was also very spacious, we had 6 girls and could have comfortably fit two more girls there if needed. It was about 15 minutes from healdsburg square which was nice and convenient. Also, the owners of the house were super nice, accommodating and very easy to work with. We loved it so much we plan on making an annual trip here. I would HIGHLY recommend this house to anyone that is looking to stay in the area. Trust me, you will not be disappointed.

Perfect Location for a Family Vaction

  • 5 of 5

The owners of Longfield Sonoma have done a wonderful job creating casual elegance in a rural setting that is near everything you need for a vacation. The house is located minutes from Highway 101 and in under 10 minutes you can either shop at the Whole Foods in Santa Rosa or listen to music on the square in Healdsburg. Multiple wineries are minutes away. The house can easily sleep nine people as we had kids, sitters, and two families with significant room to spare. The pictures of the house and pool are completely accurate. We enjoyed swimming every evening and walking the property in the morning. The owners are easy to work with. I highly recommend this house for anyone looking to relax in a quiet location while still desiring close proximity to local attractions/amenities.

Perfect Ladies Weekend

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived, everything about the place was absolutely perfect. We really felt like we were away from hustle and bustle and the beauty and the sounds of nature enveloped us in a way that was unexpected. The house is simple, serene, and perfectly appointed. There were 8 of us staying in the house but there was plenty of space for everyone to feel comfortable - either socializing or being by themselves. The grounds were wonderful to hang out it and read or just soak up the beauty of the surrounding areas. Everyone was wishing our trip was longer. Longfield is a truly magical place.

The house is located off a peaceful country lane on thirteen private acres, surrounded by vineyards and farms and including a pond. Centrally located close to Healdsburg, near the Russian River and just an hour's drive North of San Francisco.

The world-class Sonoma wine region offers over 370 wineries — from wine castles and winery resorts to simple and family vineyards. Longfield is half a mile from the nearest tasting room (Robert Rue) and the wineries around Healdsburg and Dry Creek Road (Francis Ford Coppola, Simi, Chalk Hill, Clos du Bois).

The house is minutes from excellent restaurants (John Ash, Zazu). Healdsburg presents visitors with many options (Bisto Ralph, Dry Creek Kitchen, Oakville Grocery). Given Longfield's central location, guests have access to outdoor activities (biking, hiking, rafting and golf), outdoor beauty (Russian River, The California Redwoods, The Mayacama Mountains) and general attractions (Charles Shultz Musuem, Petrified Forest, Safari West).

With 13 acres, pool, pond bocce court and the surrounding views, you may also want to just stay at the house and relax.
