Resting serenely in the heart of California’s world-renowned Wine Country, minutes from the historic town of Sonoma and less than an hour from San Francisco, an oasis of calm abiding awaits its new incarnation. Myriad possibilities will challenge the creativity of the property’s fortunate new owner. This nearly 4-acre sanctuary consists of 2 permitted, legal parcels (one for an approx. 1,000 sq. ft. second unit and one for a new home site) and currently hosts a lovingly cared for 1930s-vintage 3-bedroom cottage, new 4-car garage, bocce court, beautiful new entertainment barn, and panoramic views of surrounding hills and vineyards. There are approved building and septic plans valid through 2020 for a future home and guest home, which would be complemented splendidly by the property’s magnificent Heritage oaks. The existing cottage pays homage to the many comfortable years and peaceful times it has undoubtedly hosted, yet it is surely thankful for its enchanting restoration. Generous front and back porches are reminders of simpler days.
Highlights of the great room are a dramatic wood-slat vaulted ceiling, French doors opening to the grounds, a charming brick fireplace, and an impressive vintage bar. The current pièce de résistance of this inspiring Sonoma Valley compound, however, is its versatile entertaining barn. Spacious and stylish, offering an ambiance of relaxed sophistication and what Architectural Digest refers to as “easy chic,” the space exudes warmth, hospitality, and a promise of good times. The great room’s expansiveness is enhanced by its large, sliding barn doors and high vaulted ceiling with recessed lighting. While one entire end of the room is dominated by a full bar and dining area, the remainder offers plenty of space for game tables, seating, and sound/video equipment. This piece of Wine Country paradise is much more than acreage with multiple improvements. It is a place of refuge and recreation for even the most discerning family and friends.
