About the Property

One Bedroom Apartment Close to San Francisco and Napa/Sonoma Wine Country

This apartment is the perfect home away from home for traveling professionals who are tired of staying in hotels or for anyone coming to visit family in the Alamo, Danville, Lafayette, or San Ramon Valley. For any couple looking for a romantic getaway we are set on a half-acre wooded estate, in the upscale community of Alamo, just east of San Francisco and just 50 minutes southeast of Napa and Wine Country, Casa Di Riposo is waiting for you!

A Countryside Stay Just Outside the City!

For anyone wanting a quiet place in the countryside, but quick access to the sites of San Francisco or Wine Country by car or public transportation, this is the place to stay!

This 600 square ft. attached unit was newly remodeled in July of 2014. Guests enjoy a single master bedroom with en-suite half-bath, a spacious Living Room, fully equipped Kitchenette with all new appliances, a nicely appointed Living Room space, and new hardwood floors throughout the entire apartment.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: Bob and Cindi Norsworthy, the owners of 'Casa Di Riposo', have spent their 35 years of married life, traveling the world, bringing funding, training and resources to partnerships that work among some of the poorest and needy of the world. Casa Di Riposo means 'Home of Rest' in Italian. That is precisely what this home is for them. A place of rest and relaxation. It's a haven and retreat to recharge their batteries, in preparation to go out again, in relentless pursuit of bringing transformation and hope to those who have no hope in our world. Bob & Cindi are excited to share a part of their home with people looking to enjoy a time of rest and relaxation in 'their' favorite part of the world, the San Francisco Bay Area and the world renown California Wine Country. We welcome you to our Casa Di Riposo, House of Rest. Bob & Cindi

Why the Owner Chose Alamo, CA, USA:
We chose this property for Casa Di Riposo because of its quietness and beautiful surroundings. We are within a stones throw of the hustle and bustle of downtown San Francisco and its world class sites. Our location affords the best best combination of country living near the City. We also love being less than an hour from Wine Country with its world-famous wineries and the beautiful oceanside communities of Carmel and Monterey to the South. We can also be in the breathtaking mountains of the Sierra Nevada and Lake Tahoe or the World famous Yosemite National Park in only three hours of very scenic driving.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Alamo, the location of Casa Di Riposo, is tucked in between Danville, CA. a quaint town with a classic Main Street and great restaurants and shops along Danville Blvd., 5 minutes to the South and Walnut Creek, one of the Bay Area's best restaurant and high end shopping areas, 5 minutes to the North along Main Street and its surrounding neighborhoods. You can also walk out the door of the apartment and in 2 minutes hike or bike along the scenic and tree lined Iron Horse Trail. The Iron Horse Trail, once a historic railway that brought the wealthy of San Francisco to the nearby countryside for retreat, is now paved over and turned into a pristine paved hiking trail with over thirty miles of hiking through the communities of the historic San Ramon and Diablo Valley. Mount Diablo, dominating the horizon to the East is one of the Bay Area's best regional parks, affording breathtaking views of the San Ramon Valley to its West and on a clear day views all the way to the State of Nevada and the Sierra Nevada mountain range to the East.
