Secluded on a peaceful knoll just minutes from the towns of Kenwood and Glen Ellen, this approximately 3,300-square-foot home is a serene, comfortable resort-caliber retreat set in the northern Sonoma Valley with 360-degree views of vineyards, small shaded oak forest, meadows and pastures, poised perfectly in the Valley of the Moon to appreciate the beauty of the Mayacamas Range that separates the two valleys of Sonoma and Napa. This unique setting also affords views of Hood Mountain, Sugarloaf Park, Sonoma Mountain with the legendary Jack London Historic State Park.
The main living and entertaining spaces allow for graceful transitions, from living area to deck, patios and pool, creating several separate yet connected spots for relaxation. Main living area includes numerous useful built-ins, warmly hued white oak hardwood floors, a Texas limestone fireplace, a lofty open beamed ceiling, and a wall of windows offering a dramatic panoramic view, a spacious, open kitchen with built-in breakfast table, tile surfaces with punctuations of copper counters and generous cabinet space, a dining area with terra cotta tile gas fireplace, expansive views from banks of windows and doors to a large redwood deck. Plenty of spots for catching afternoon and winter sunshine and sunset views over the vineyard and a simple step down to a level area for recreation activities. Curved steps lead to a fenced vegetable garden with raised beds.
The thoughtful floor plan creates welcome privacy by placing the primary bedroom on one side of the home and the guest bedrooms (one with a star gazing deck), an office, and a recreation room on the other. The tranquil owner’s suite includes a bedroom with a fireplace and dazzling views of 3 different vistas, a separate sitting area or reading nook, access to a private brick patio with views, and a stylish, light-filled bath with a dual-sink vanity, a soaking tub, and glass-walled shower, open beamed ceiling with skylight close to two ample closets, one walk-in with built-ins. The recreation room offers access and views of pool area, gardens, and mountain ranges, with abundant built-in bookshelves, a naturally cooled wine storage area positioned in a large closet, and easy access to a covered separate entryway.
Living room opens to a larger redwood deck with sweeping and unparalleled views, including sunrises, reflected sunsets and remarkedly dramatic moonrises –all against the backdrop of the Mayacamas. A graceful transition to a terraced yard includes a trellis decorated with climbing roses and wisteria surrounding an al fresco dining area on a patio of decomposed granite, a possible quintessential wine country farm-to-table setting.
A fan-shaped design creates gentle sloping natural lawn steps, connecting to the larger lawn that borders the blue-green waters of the 50′ pool. This is encircled by a garden with a variety of plants and flowers, protected by a palisade of grape stakes covered with wild roses. A natural low rock wall encloses a small patio, suitable for private lounging under the oaks close to the shallow end of the pool.
Property is situated on approx. ±3.96 acres with spaces indoors and out, offering vistas of treetops, rolling hills, vineyards and mountains, wide-open blue sky, night skies of stars, and dramatic moonrises. The acreage affords room for the creation of a studio or similar auxiliary building for hobbies or sports. Downtown Kenwood is a five-minute drive away, the town of Glen Ellen with its renowned restaurants only a 15-minute drive on scenic back roads, and 6 nearby popular parks: 3 state and 3 regional parks—Jack London, Sugarloaf Ridge, Trione-Annadel, Hood Mountain, North Sonoma Mountain, Taylor Mountain, and their miles of trails.
