Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Pool, Hot Tub, Bocce Ball, Outdoor Fireplace

This charming wine country home is located on Sonoma Creek just a mile from downtown Glen Ellen. After crossing the private bridge, you will find everything you need to relax and enjoy a gathering of family or friends. The large bluestone patio has a beautiful heated pool with integrated spa, a stone fireplace and Bocce ball court. Play horse shoes or just relax in the hammock. There is an outdoor dining table, BBQ and plenty of flexible seating areas. Kids will love exploring the 5 acre property especially the creek side “beach” and swimming hole, or the tree house and a tree swing. There is an old feed shed at the top of the hill with spectacular views of area. The hillside is covered with incredible oaks and the house is surrounded with olive trees which are harvested and pressed for oil in the late fall.

Inside this one story home, settle down in the cozy family room with a flat screen TV and game table. The adjoining great room has a fireplace, a family style dining table and a wonderful, well stocked kitchen that a cook like Ina Garten would love! The large kitchen island is a favorite spot for wine tasting while prepping meals together or feeding the kids. There are 3 bedrooms and 3 full baths. The Master has a queen Tempur-Pedic bed, ensuite bath with tub and large shower and a private deck. The 2nd bedroom has 2 twin beds that you have the option to have us combine into a king bed and an ensuite bathroom. The 3rd bedroom has a queen bed and a full bath directly across the hall.

Most people never want to leave the property but if you feel like venturing out there are many wonderful restaurants nearby (Fig Café, Glen Ellen STAR, Yeti Indian and Nepalese Restaurant, Olive and Vine and newly opened Aventine). If you head down highway 12 and are a fan of Mexican food, the tiny town of Agua Caliente hosts El Molino Central. By far the best chicken enchiladas in the United States! The town of Sonoma which is just 15 minutes also has incredible restaurants such as The Girl and the Fig, Café Le Haye and Eldorado Kitchen. If you decide to stay home and cook, the world class Glen Ellen Market and Deli has everything from the basics to the most fancy gourmet foods.

This home is located in the heart of the Sonoma Valley. There are many fine wineries within a 10 minute drive in both Glen Ellen and Kenwood. The Benziger Family Winery has an excellent tour featuring their Biodynamic organic farming methods. There are many hiking trails located nearby. Enjoy state and regional parks especially The Jack London State Park with remains of his dream house, the “Wolf House” which was destroyed by a fire back in 1913. The Napa valley is only a 20 minute drive over the scenic Oakville Grade.

We are very confident your expectations will be met and then some!

Amazing relaxing vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We could not have picked a better home to stay at while we were in Glen Ellen. We were able to relax, take a dip in the pool and enjoy wine country! I would suggest this home to anyone looking to stay in a beautiful updated home with all the amenities. The home owners were extremely sweet and helpful with all our questions. Looking forward to visiting again :-)

beautiful house and land

  • 5 of 5

Neil is orofessional, courteous and responsive. The kitchen is very well equipped. The land is private and so lovely. We had beautiful night skies. We hit an unusually hot few days (103) and not having air conditioning was hard for elderly parents. Short of that (and not being able to heat the pool and spa at the same time) this was a wonderful property and experience. Definitely recommended!

Charming family home in Sonoma

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a really wonderful weekend in Sonoma at Neil and Ellys property. This is a beautify family home clearly designed for active children (tree house, pool, bocce etc) and wonderful evenings by the fire (in door or outdoors!). Really a wonderful time - couldn't recommend it more.

Excellent Property!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Yellow Barn for Thanksgiving with our families and had the best time. The house is very comfortable, with everything you would need during your stay. Their grounds are amazing- our dogs loved their stay as well. Would book this property again in a heartbeat!

Perfect wine country oasis

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at the Yellow Barn with my family to celebrate my mother's birthday and we couldn't have asked for a more perfect getaway. This place is beautiful! The house is comfortable, spacious, and clean with all the amenities you need. The pool is perfect for a warm wine country afternoon. Elly and Neil are so accommodating and responsive and gave us many wonderful recommendations for nearby eateries and wineries. On top of it all, they let us bring our puppy (who is an "apartment dog") and she LOVED being able to prance around and sunbathe in the huge back yard. None of us wanted to leave on our checkout date - we could have easily spent another day or more relaxing outside, grilling, playing bocce ball and swimming. I wholeheartedly recommend this house - you will love it. Thank you Elly and Neil!
