Just aside, the town of Glen Ellen is the hidden entry to this 6.42± acre idyllic garden compound offering versatility and seemingly endless potential. A gated, dogwood and oak-lined drive leads into the grounds and immediately you feel a sense of place and home. Spurred by their love of plants and the land, the owners have over years created an enclave with incredible trees and decorative, cutting and produce gardens with arbored paths and secret retreats amidst flowers, vegetables, fruits, vines and olives.
There are two private and light-filled renovated residences, one a 3-bedroom and one a 2 or 3-bedroom; there is possibility for a third dwelling or guest house. The homes boast open plans with vaulted, open beam ceilings, multiple picture windows and glass doors providing lovely outlooks and accesses to the grounds. The valley floor site offers views of Sonoma Mountain and breathtaking sunrises and sunsets.
Indoor/outdoor entertaining areas include a large, heated pool surrounded by lawn and magnificent gardens, an outdoor kitchen with stone sink, grill and pizza oven beside the vegetable and herb garden and a trellised dining pergola.
