Featuring award winning design and breathtaking views this 38+ acre Sonoma Valley estate compound rests on the Mayacamas mountain range.

The compound consists of four structures and blends: The main residence, guest cabana, stone studio and stone garage. Access is via a gated entry to a paved driveway and circular drive with plentiful parking. There is a strong well, water storage and an installed 6-bedroom septic system.
The award winning main residence has 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths; stone floors are heated and the home is air conditioned.

The foyer opens to the airy living room with a splendid 22 foot central rotunda, exquisite hand carved stone fireplace mantle and multiple banks of tall French doors with terrace access. The formal dining room is flanked by cast stone columns and also has access to the terrace.

The kitchen features cherry wood cabinetry and stainless steel countertops and stainless appliances. There is a breakfast bar and dining area with French doors to the terrace and access to the entertaining plaza. No detail was left out of the design; even the rear of the home is lovely with a gorgeous curved terrace with shade providing canvas awnings that add a pop of color. The view is ever present from multiple windows and balconies.
Below the plaza you find yourself at a luxurious stone and stucco cabana guest house with a solar heated pool and spectacular view. Structure includes 1 bedroom, 1 bath, a charming kitchenette with breakfast bar, a wood burning fireplace, radiant heated cement floors, cushioned window seat and French doors.

The 3-car garage with workbench and storage has automatic glass doors, stone facing, and an arched door entrance off the plaza. It was designed to have the look of an old world winery.
There are many walking paths that take you through established gardens and vine covered pergolas to secret stone benches and multiple outdoor entertaining areas beneath majestic valley oaks. With approximately 10 of the 38+ acres usable, the land offers not only privacy, but the ability to have equestrian and/or viticultural uses.
