CUSTOM HOME IN THE SONOMA HILLS

EXQUISITE WINE COUNTRY HOME FOR ENTERTAINING

This beautiful home in the hills above Sonoma is an absolute must see.  Featuring various levels to welcome guests, and bursting with custom accents and winsome touches, every inch of this home features thoughtful architectural details.  From the airy two-story foyer with its handcrafted wrought iron handrail and designer light fixture to the kitchen’s glass tile mosaic backsplash, almost no stone has been left unturned.

The home’s main floor features an airy and bright Great Room. French doors open onto a large balcony that overlooks both the property and Sonoma’s southern hills.  A gas fireplace is a focal point of the room and perfect to ward off winter’s chill.  The adjacent dining room is large enough for a dinner party and the flowing living and dining areas readily accommodate an entertaining lifestyle.  Large windows frame the vintage oaks just outside while high ceilings add drama.  And, note the gorgeous oak floors, custom millwork and solid core doors throughout.

In the chef’s kitchen, a commanding butcher block island - complete with a five-burner cooktop and bar seating - takes center stage. The breezy space features cherry cabinets, granite counters, a big pantry, and stainless steel appliances including a wine fridge in the stand alone bar area. A lovely powder room rounds out the main level.

On the lower level, a large living area with French doors gives direct access to the large terrace and deck area. This versatile space can be used as family room, den, media room, home office or exercise area.  Two large bedrooms, each with spacious closets, share the downstairs as well as a full bathroom.

On the home’s uppermost level, the en suite master bedroom is an absolute haven.  Quiet and serene, the room features a cathedral ceiling as well as French doors that lead to a private balcony with far reaching vistas. The beautiful spa bathroom is highlighted by custom travertine tile on the floors, counters and in the enormous spa shower.  Mahogany cabinetry and a jetted soaking tub add a luxurious touch. In the huge walk-in closet find custom built-ins and shoe shelves made of Iron Wood. 

Throughout the home, three zoned heating, radiant heat flooring and Marvin windows and doors bring efficiency and consistency.

Outside, this home affords multiple entertaining areas, each highlighting a different vantage point.  On the main level, find a large deck, perfect or lounging.  Upstairs off the master bedroom, the private balcony is like a treetop aerie.  On the lower level, the terrace and large deck area feature an incredible creeping wisteria, a large hot tub, and views of the rest of the property with room for a pool or hobby vineyard.  An attached two car garage with shelving as well as a well-outfitted workshop round out this home. 

Perfect as a main residence or weekend home for entertaining, 17247 Hillside Avenue is the ultimate Wine Country destination.  Don’t miss this exquisite Sonoma Valley escape.
