About the property

4 Bedrooms, 3 1/2 newly remodeled bathrooms - Sleeps 10

Paresa is a stunning 3 acre estate located between Sonoma and Glen Ellen in the beautiful Sonoma Valley wine country. Perfect for entertaining, this wine country compound boasts a mid-century main home with 3 bedrooms & 2 newly remodeled baths set on 3 panoramic vineyard & hill view acres between Sonoma & Glen Ellen. Additionally, there is a spacious attached guest suite with a newly remodeled full bath & private entrance, a detached game room with ping pong table and half court basketball. Newly remodeled 1/2 bath in game room and an outdoor shower.

This 2600 square foot wine country escape has walls of glass that bring the outdoors in, with sweeping vineyard views. Newly stained concrete floors add a contemporary touch. Relax at the brand new, sumptuous salt water pool, custom spa, patio and bocce court and basketball court + a new outdoor shower. Multiple outdoor seating and dining options give it a resort-like feel along with the outdoor BBQ and fire pit. The property also comes equipped with a tandem bike, suspension mountain bike and a custom cruiser for touring the trails and wineries in our backyard.

The main house has three bedrooms, all with brand new furnishings, bedding, artwork and appointments. The master queen bedroom has beautiful vineyard and pool views along with an en suite, newly remodeled marble bathroom with heated floors and walk-in closet. There are two additional bedrooms, one with vineyard views and queen bed and one with 2 twin extra long beds. Both share a newly remodeled bathroom with brand new washer dryer.

The large, open living room and dining room each have floor-to-ceiling brick fireplaces + vineyard and garden views for exquisite and entertaining backdrops. The open kitchen was newly remodeled in May 2016 with all new equipment, and open bar.

The attached guest suite has a large, open format with brand new American Leather sleep sofa (with high end king bed), daybed and pull-out trundle (2 twins), new leather club chairs and a new 46' plasma TV; DVD/CD player with high speed internet/WiFi and cable. The guest suite also has a pot belly stove, full, newly remodeled bath and breezeway kitchen pantry with additional sink, dishwasher and wine cooler. Although the guest suite has a separate entrance, it is connected to the main house.

The property is surrounded by lush vineyard and hill views with complete privacy. Beautiful Manzanita and fruit trees along with raised beds filled with organic vegetables and flowers also adorn the backyard alongside pool, spa, bocce, basketball and barbecue.

The estate is minutes from multiple wineries, fine dining and state parks with endless trails, hikes and panoramic views. BR Cohn, Valley of the Moon, Imagery and Hamel Family Vineyards are less than one mile away and feature beautiful tasting rooms, summer concert series and events. The nearby Sonoma Mission Inn boasts a world famous spa for pampering and relaxation.

This is a dream destination for groups, families and friends. Paresa is the Heaven of Heavens!

About Kelly Halligan

We recently purchased this dream home in Sonoma's wine country and hope to retire here someday. The estate is currently our escape from San Francisco and feels like a European country retreat less than an hour from the city.

Kelly Halligan purchased this chateau / country house in 2014

Beautiful Home-Fantastic Location!

  • 5 of 5

This home is gorgeous! We rented this home for a special birthday celebration and had four couples attend. The home is very well maintained and the owners were helpful and immediately made some restaurant and winery recommendations. The house is conveniently located near downtown Sonoma and there are a few wineries that are walking distance from the house. Unfortunately, it rained the entire weekend we were there, so we were unable to relax outdoors around the pool, but we enjoyed the beautiful view from the family room and were able to make a fire in the fireplace and were extremely cozy. We did not cook any meals at the house, but if we chose to do that--the kitchen was well equipped for cooking. I would recommend this house to anyone looking for a place to stay in Sonoma and would love to have another opportunity to stay in the future. Hopefully with sunshine this time!

Perfect Getaway in Sonoma

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home as a little getaway before winter hits our mountain town. It was fantastic! We really enjoyed the hot tub, ping pong table and bocce. Perfect location for tasting and for dinner in both Glen Ellen and Sonoma. The owners were very attentive and available to answer any questions that came up. We will be back!

Perfection in Sonoma

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for a girls getaway and couldn't have been happier! The kitchen is well stocked with everything we needed, the home is perfectly renovated and really feels like a beach home, minus the beach, and was super clean. And the views!! The views from the pool (and actually from the front door as well) are spectacular and almost made us feel like we were in another country. The pool is perfect for lounging around and there are several wineries within walking distance. Oh also, the owner was very responsive and very welcoming! We really couldn't have asked for more.

Relaxing Under the Stars

  • 4 of 5

This property was a great space for hosting our group. The recent renovations were well done and the living area was thoughtfully appointed with entertaining in mind. In particular, the backyard was a lovely space for enjoying the evenings - and taking in the shooting stars display. Above all, the kitchen was great to work in. The owner was accessible and went so far as to enhance our experience with fresh flowers. Even though we were 4 couples, the house would work well with families. Very close to the town of Sonoma.

A life well lived.

  • 5 of 5

This property was so perfectly put together. Every part of the experience was impeccable. From the booking to staying at the property every detail was considered. We stayed for a long weekend to celebrate my best friend's 40th birthday. We hit 3 to 4 wineries a day and spent the rest of the time here, either in the pool or enjoying the many activities this property offers.

We cooked fantastic meals in their well appointed kitchen, enjoyed wine in the jacuzzi while watching the sun set over the vineyards and enjoyed peaceful evenings and mornings with the windows open feeling the coastal breeze.

My wife hopes to have a property just like it one day. I hope to give it to her.

Any night spent at this property is a night well spent.
