About the Property
Chateau top floor includes 3 bedrooms, one home theater room and stunning views
The location is in Sonora, the heart of the California gold country, with easy daily commutes to Yosemite National Park, Dodge Ridge for Skiing, Pinecrest Lake for boating and fishing, and numerous other parks like Kennedy Meadows, Big Trees, in addition to much of the Sierra Foothills wine country.
Come and experience what Chateau like is like away from the city. You will see what $2 million can buy you (and you can bid on it if you ware interested); In the bay area, you can buy nothing but a tiny house on a busy street for that money. In today's world you can work remote, so why not live like I do, in such a paradise.

Most guests generally like to drive up to Yosemite National Park, or go skiing at Dodge Ridge, Hiking around Pinecrest Lake, or do wine tasting locally, including at the home, or towards Murphy's and Sutter Creek, in the Gold Country. But Chateau St. George is a destination of its own, as the chateau has its own vineyard from which the owner makes his own wine; the views are totally amazing as well, and are around 270 degrees.
Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: I have custom built Chateau St. George as it is my dream home, and it is designed after French Provence style, so you will feel as if you are visiting the best of Provence or Tuscany. I am fluent in French also, and enjoy listening to a variety of cultured music, ranging from French to Opera, and some nice sultry music and fun rock in between. I enjoy hosting, as I am well traveled. I am a wine maker also, and can discuss wine making techniques with preparing dinner and wine pairing it with a variety of wines at market cost including Chateau St George Petite Syrah.
Why the Owner Chose Sonora, CA, USA:
I have designed Chateau St. George and built it completing it in 2004. It has a vineyard also, where I make wine. It is a destination in its own right. The views are stunning; the property is fenced, so it is totally secure. It is totally a quiet area other than listening to the country sounds like birds chirping, or the music playing. It is close to everything; the grocery stores are only 5mn away; yet it is totally secluded. Skiing is only 40mn away at Dodge. Yosemite is an hr and half away.
The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
Amazing views and amenities and easy access to popular destinations in the Sierras; the Chateau is custom built, and it is really high end. It is very comfortable, and has views from every room. My friends when they visit, simply call it: 'paradise'. To experience it you have to visit it. It is the ideal venue for a family retreat, as the Chateau design is charming and Provence like... very charming in all its details. In addition, dining and wine matching are key options that the host is willing to prepare on some occasions.
