The Bosworth is a charming Victorian home ideally situated in Geyserville at the heart of one of Sonoma County's best wine-tasting regions. Built in 1904 and stylishly restored in 2015, this home is perfect for relaxing wine country get-aways. The new pool and hot tub/spa are perfect for relaxing on hot summer days or after wine tasting!
The Bosworth house was built in 1904 by George Bosworth for his wife and family. The family is one of the early settlers to the Geyserville area, and whose descendants have remained in and around Geyservile. George Bosworth's grandson, Harry Bosworth still runs Bosworth & Son General Merchandise just a few blocks away.
The house is an outstanding example of mixed styles: it is Victorian with wide interior trim. It still has the large sliding pocket doors intact, along with high ceilings, and original fir floors. The outside shows a strong Palladian influence in the low dormer windows cut through the main roof line, small bay and windows, and sheet metal minarets on the roof. It is a classic example of a merchant's home in a rural area, built at a time when folks could use a mail order Pattern book to choose house plans. This home was built from a Pattern Book popular at the time.
Each room has been thoughtfully decorated to bring the home to life and create a comfortable, casual environment for your vacation.
Walking through the front door you'll find the cosy wine room to your left and dining area to your right. Both rooms will comfortably seat 8-10 people and are great spaces to gather with family and friends. The kitchen is set up for those who love to cook. With a six burner Wolf range, a Sub Zero refrigerator, and a cozy farm table you'll be inspired to cook with all of the local produce and cheeses Sonoma County has to offer. And finally the TV room comes with a 70" television, two sofas and leather reading chair.
The three upstairs bedrooms, two with ensuite bath, all have King beds, 50" flat screen TVs and down alternative duvets. The light-filled downstairs bedroom at the back of the house has a Queen bed and two full walls of windows that look out on to the charming back yard.
Outside, you'll find beautiful gardens, a small vineyard, fruit trees, and tables and chairs for outdoor dining or relaxing with a glass of wine.
Guests have access to the entire house and yard. There is also Wi-Fi and a garden.
