Project Description

Botanical Wine Country Compound

12800 Sonoma Hwy, Glen Ellen 95442


This approximately 6.42± acre estate in the historic community of Glen Ellen is an idyllic garden getaway that recalls the fabled vineyards of Tuscany. Offering impressive versatility and seemingly endless potential, it encompasses two residences, a tractor and bottling barn, a party barn, a heated swimming pool, an outdoor kitchen pergola with a grill and a pizza oven, more than 700 olive trees nestled between Cabernet and Merlot vines, beautiful established landscaping, and extensive vegetable, herb, and flower gardens. One of the area’s best aquifers and two wells provide ample water for the property.

The multilevel main residence offers 2 bedrooms and 3 baths, hardwood and tile floors, and an open-plan living area featuring a woodburning stove, a charming kitchen, a dining area, a beamed ceiling, and French doors giving way to a wraparound deck designed for enjoying the picturesque surroundings and dramatic sunsets. Stairs lead to an area of emerald lawn that surrounds the refreshing swimming pool. On the second level are a guest room with a full bath and the owner’s suite, which boasts a generous closet, a walk-in shower, and a convenient laundry area. Other highlights include a new carport and a converted garage serving as an office with a full bath and a mud room. A generator provides peace of mind.  Continued…

Ideal for visiting family and friends, the guesthouse is an updated retreat featuring three bedrooms, two baths, an open-plan living area with a woodburning stove, hardwood and tile floors, a well-outfitted kitchen, an inviting porch overlooking a lush fenced yard, and oversized windows offering spectacular views of the Sonoma Mountains. Accompanying the guesthouse are a hot tub, a carport with storage and laundry space, and a nearby play structure.

Rebuilt in 2018, the barn near the main residence was designed for processing oil from the estate’s olive trees and is equipped with hot water and a bottling system featuring Italian plugs. It also includes a wood shop area and a detached greenhouse.

Perfect for festive gatherings large or small, the party barn is introduced by gardens, manicured hedges, and an arched vine-covered walkway. The bright, airy interior space features cathedral ceilings, easily maintained concrete flooring, a striking Tony Duquette chandelier, a half bath, double-paned windows, and French doors to a terrace. Fully insulated, the space is also plumbed for up to four sinks.
