Bathed in natural light and with stunning views that span nearly a hundred miles, Chill Hill is a secluded and private hilltop getaway that's perfect for a memorable, relaxing wine country holiday. Set on nearly an acre of lush grounds, this an immaculately kept, designer home that's perfect for indoor/outdoor living.
The wine country home features lush, natural views from every window (even the bathrooms) and is located within minutes of world-class vineyards and wineries, the coast, and the quaint towns of Healdsburg, Sonoma, Glen Ellen, and Kenwood. It's a perfect location -- close to everything, but a million miles away.
The house is set-up for true California Wine Country living. Like a mini-resort, it features:
- Open floor plan overlooking the Pacific Coast's western mountain ranges and vineyards
- Warm 30' swimming pool fed by crystal clear, spring water (80-84 degrees F avg. temp)
- Outdoor dining pavilion with giant views of the Russian River Valley
- Yoga deck and Zen garden
- Herb garden and seasonal vegetable gardens
- Numerous outdoor seating areas, quiet nooks, and vista points
- Hilltop perch
- Fruit trees: apples, oranges, lemons, plums, olives...
- Weber BBQ
Inside: The house has three bedrooms. On the first floor is a large master with en suite bath and natural stone, walk-in shower for two. There are two more bedrooms that share a brand new, slate and marble bath on the secluded second floor. Both upstairs bedrooms open to an adjoining sunroom with a DVD screen, spin bike, sitting area, and tons of books. The main floor features a living room and dining area with formal seating for six. There is also a 6' ebony grand piano and giant picture windows facing the Russian River Valley, Dry Creek Valleys and the coastal hills. At the heart of the main floor is a large, open, chef's kitchen with Viking appliances, commercial gas range, La Pavoni espresso machine, and a beautiful 11-foot antique work table from 19th century France, with stool seating for casual meals. The kitchen spills to a warm seating area with wood-burning fireplace, 55" flat screen TV, and a giant picture window with expansive valley views all the way to the coast and guaranteed gorgeous sunsets just about every evening.
Natural wood plank floors span the first floor with beautiful Persian carpets, recessed halogen lighting (all on dimmers), Asian antiques, and artwork. The house is instantly comfortable and perfectly decorated with restraint and casual elegance.
A short walk down the hill will take you to the area's best bakery, coffee shop, florist, a boutique grocery store, and a popular family restaurant -- all locally owned. The renowned Santa Rosa Certified Farmer's Market is a few miles away on Wednesday and Saturday mornings. Downtown is just a few minute's drive where you'll find Michelin-awarded restaurants, cafes, shopping, movies, live music, brew-pubs, attractions, and more. And of course, there are hundreds of world-class wineries to be explored in every direction. We've left an extensive list of our favorite local spots for guests.
Please note that parties, events, weddings, annulments, electronic music festivals, Burning Man reunions, and related celebrations at the home are *strictly prohibited*. Sorry. It's really quiet here and respect for neighbors is absolutely essential. At night, the stars and lights below will twinkle while sounds of civilization are replaced by those of nature.
You'll find Chill Hill to be a super peaceful and restful escape of the best kind. Welcome to Sonoma County!
