About the property

An Immaculate, Spacious 4 Bedroom, 3 1/2 Bath Wine Country Headquarters.


Location. Location. Location. La Prenda Vineyards Victorian - a large, well appointed 4 bedroom, 3 ½ bath vacation home - is the centerpiece of the working ranch from which Ned Hill, one of the region’s most prominent vineyard managers, guides more than 800 acres of the region’s finest grapes. Magnificent century old redwood trees compliment the impressive stature of the soaring two-story Victorian, backed by vineyards and ranch operations. Located at the gateway to Sonoma Valley, the ranch is just minutes from historic Sonoma Plaza, hundreds of Sonoma, Carneros and Napa wineries, dozens of restaurants, historic sites, hiking trails, bike paths, spas, galleries, shops and event facilities.


Step into this stately sanctuary and make yourself at home! Settle into comfy furnishings in front of a blazing fire in the first floor living room. Whip up a gourmet meal in the spacious kitchen; enjoy a formal dinner at the large dining table, or informal meal in the kitchen’s breakfast room. Play games or watch movies in the family room, complete with a large flat screen television, full sofa bed, and wood-burning stove.

The well equipped kitchen, with granite counter tops, central island, and new stainless steel appliances, provides plenty of work space for family and friends who cook together, as well as professionals. Invite a private chef in – and plan an intimate dinner.

A spacious veranda wraps around the front of the house, and a back porch and lawn provide ample space for outdoor dining. The hot tub is located just off the back porch. The expansive handcrafted picnic table seats 12.

Hardwood floors flow throughout the remainder of the first floor, while carpeting softens the upstairs bedrooms. A second master with cal king bed, rich wood furnishings and in suite bath is located on the second floor. Two separate queen bedrooms share a tiled bath. A hide-a-bed loveseat in the king provides space for an additional child or adult, along with the family room sofa bed, The Victorian comfortably sleeps up to 10 people. There are also additional folding beds available. (twin sizes)

Amazing weekend celebration

  • 5 of 5

There were eight of us that spent a long weekend celebrating my youngest daughters 21st birthday and couldn’t have stayed in a nicer place! We thouroughly enjoyed the time we spent at La Prenda and liked the fact that it was close enough to NAPA and had many wonderful places to go to right in Sonoma. The home was very cozy, clean and had no problem accommodating all eight of us! We would definitely recommend this property to anyone and will also reserve time there at a later date.

The six of us (3 couples) really enjoyed our Sonoma stay. LaPrenda was perfect-very comfortable and homey. We had a sumptuous catered dinner and the kitchen provided everything the chef needed for a lovely presentation. Thanks, Erika & Ned.

Spacious yet charming

  • 5 of 5

Our home away from home in Sonoma was just perfect for our getaway with friends. We had everything we needed and plenty of space. This gave us some private, quiet space as well as great areas to gather together. The location was great; close to Sonoma Sq and easy quick drives to stores and Napa. It was everything we hoped to have in a vacation home.
