Overview

About the property

4 bedroom, two bathroom designer wine country estate with views and pool

Our Sonoma Valley home on 2 acres of beautifully landscaped property has newly and lovingly been remodeled as our private country retreat, with every amenity and designer finishes. Located in the heart of Sonoma Wine Country, it has recently been made available as a vacation rental.

This private, quiet Sonoma retreat, on level grounds appealing to all ages, is reached by a long country driveway. The home has two sprawling landscaped yards in front and back, is landscaped to bloom nearly year round. The Ledson designed home has the appeal of an English country manor with a sprawling deck in the back for al fresco meals or sunset conversation. A fire pit and teak chairs are surrounded by a rose garden in the front yard. Relax and take in fabulous, panoramic views of nearby Sugarloaf or Hood mountain peaks and surrounding vineyards.

This meticulously updated single level 2800 sq. ft. personal family residence has been recently renovated with high end finishes and is appointed with state of the art amenities including 66 inch and 60 inch Samsung HD/3D flat screen TV's in multiple rooms, high thread count linens, Frette towels in the master, custom designer furnishings, vintage pieces and original art.

Serious or casual cooks will love the gourmet chef's kitchen featuring professional grade appliances by Thermador and Bosch, a huge marble island, and designer lighting and an oversized farmhouse sink. The dining area boasts a beautiful French oak extension dining table for family meals and a small conversation nook to enjoy your morning coffee while gazing out upon the views. From the dining room enter in the huge living room with a wood burning fireplace and deep, oversized sofas for relaxing conversation. The open floorplan and multiple French doors to the deck and pool allows for gatherings of family and friends to enjoy indoor/outdoor living.

Outside, relax on the comfortable outdoor living room furniture or enjoy a family meal at the gorgeous teak dining table. Cook dinner on the charcoal grill, or light a fire in the outdoor fireplace for toasted marshmallows under the stars. Enjoy the beautiful Sonoma outdoors in the 20 X 45 solar heated pool with automatic heavy-duty electronic pool cover and built in spa, the young orchard with abundance of fruit trees, the children's play structure, the kitchen herb garden, or the large fenced-in vegetable garden filled with produce in season.

This property is a perfect getaway for family gatherings or retreats. It is surrounded by several wineries, tasting rooms & restaurants, many within walking distance of the property. Walking distance wineries and restaurants include: VJB, Café Citti, Pallooza, En Garde, Muscardini, Mayo Reserve Room, B Wise, Ty Caton, Paradise Ridge, Kenwood winery. Many more wineries are located within a short drive (Chateau St. Jean, St. Francis, Ledson, Kunde, Deerfield Ranch, Imagery, Arrowood, Landmark, etc.)

The home has four bedrooms: one king, one queen, two twins, a queen bed with a baby crib, and a media room with a comfortable pull-out sofa. Every room has been remodeled within the last 2 years.

The house is very kid friendly with two extra pack n plays, high chairs, lots of toys and kids' books and a child's play structure- however adults are responsible for watching their children given the risks associated with play structures and pools.

Because this is our family country home we discourage large rental parties or heavy entertaining. We wish not to disturb our neighbors in this peaceful, private area. By prior arrangement, a limited number of day guests may be considered.

Our Sonoma County TOT Certificate number is 1589N. Maximum adult guests are 8. No loud outdoor noise allowed after 10pm.

Gorgeous property...

  • 5 of 5

We just finished a five-night stay here and it was wonderful all around. Everything in the house was in working order, and the layout and rooms were ideal for our group (2.5 families). Serenity, quiet, plenty of room, and a great location. Really fantastic!

Beautiful home and location was excellent. All the amenities you could ever need.

  • 4 of 5

This beautiful home is situated in a perfect spot for trips to Sonoma, Napa, St. Helena, Calistoga and Yountville- not to mention all the wonderful Kenwood wineries. All the amenities you could ever need are at this beautiful property and we felt right at home. The one and only thing that made us uncomfortable was the surveillance camera - not that we had anything to hide, but it felt strange knowing we were being watched. Otherwise, I would definitely recommend this property.

After twenty years of going to the wine country, we found a hidden paradise.

  • 5 of 5

In Kenwood, at the end of a non-descript road off of Sonoma Hwy., we discovered a wonderful home in the wine country. This home is well thought out with attention to detail. The owner was extremely helpful by offering not only suggestions for local wineries, but restaurant recommendations (which were spot on) and a Chef who came in and cooked a spectacular birthday dinner. After a couple of tastings each day, to be able to return to this magical backyard, turn on some music, light the outdoor fireplace and taste the discoveries of the day...well, it doesn't get much better than that. We will be back. Cheers from Texas!

AMAZING!!!!! Highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

This house is incredible. Well-organized, nicely furnished, perfect layout, lots of bells and whistles. We went for my husband's 40th birthday and had the time of our lives! Some recommendations: Restaurants we loved included Girl and the Fig, St. Francis (multi-course meals for groups of 8+, note that the food is the star, the wine is OK), Farmstead. Wineries that made it special included Littorai, Dunn, Spring Mountain, and Arista. We hired John Adamson, a personal chef, and he was unbelievable! And such a friendly, kind person. I can't recommend him enough!

Peaceful Country Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Lara's home was a perfect spot for our family. Beautiful views, well appointed, out door fireplace and grill.

We felt right at home as the home has everything. Situated walking distance from restaurants and vineyards, views of the hillsides from the back yard. One floor, the gathering are of kitchen and dining area are perfect. Top quality appliances, even a bike was available.

It's a perfect location for any Sonoma destination. The road to Napa is through tricky mountain road but doable.

We would go back again as it is a perfect relaxing destination home. Kids even took advantage of area skydiving.
