About the Property

Estate, 4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths (Sleeps 8)

El Mirador (from Spanish, from mirar to look, affording a view of the surroundings)
This gorgeous, private and gated 1.8 acre estate located just behind the historical Sonoma Square, in the country. Newly remodeled in early 2014, the property features 4 bedrooms and 4 full bathrooms, a large living room with 13 foot french doors offering endless views of the Sonoma hills, and a 26 foot dining patio for gathering friends and enjoying the weather.

Come enjoy the view over the pool, relax on a daybed suspended from a perfectly placed old oak tree, while listening to the koi pond quietly cascading in the background, BBQ warming your dinner as you sample some local wine and cheese.

This could be one of the finest places to sit and relax after a long day of wine tasting, hiking, ballooning, biking, shopping or just enjoying the slow paced local atmosphere.

*Please note: the property is not permitted to host weddings, receptions or large parties.
*The pool is solar powered. Thus it is typically warm enough for swimming from April through October, often into November. During hot summer months the temperature is often in the 80s.
* This is a non smoking property.
* Fire pit is closed due to fire danger (we need rain!)

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: I have lived in the Bay Area my entire life and have no intent of leaving. Between Marin, Sonoma and Tahoe I can; bike, hike, ski, eat, dine and play just about anything with some of the worlds great people.

Why the Owner Chose Sonoma, CA, USA:
Having lived in the Bay Area my entire life I truly believe Sonoma is one of the great hidden gems of the world (and yes I have traveled extensively. The best comparison I have found is the slow pace of Southern France) Where Napa may have the name for wine, Sonoma has access to all the great wine PLUS small old town charm. The Sonoma Square (one of two, Healdsburg is the other) offers a relaxed atmosphere that has not changed 100 years. This is also the birth place of California for the history buffs. El Mirador (from Spanish, from mirar to look, affording a view of the surroundings) offers unparalleled views from Mount Tamalpais past Mount Diablo, in the middle, through the east bay. Truly amazing on a clear day. All while less then 5 minutes (under 2 miles) from the square. Read the reviews as pictures just cannot do it justice. The house was fully remodeled in 2014 and has all the bells and whistles you could ever ask for while keeping the quite of this tranquil hilltop location. You will not be disappointed. Sonoma TOT #: 133N
