MINUTES FROM HISTORIC SONOMA PLAZA BUT A WORLD AWAY
With its wide terraces, outdoor sitting area, dining deck and multiple French doors, the impressive two-story home is a model of the indoor/outdoor lifestyle.
A cathedral ceiling crowned by rustic beams floods the Great Room with natural light while large windows afford views of the Sonoma Valley below. The room’s wood burning fireplace is flanked by niches ready for books or an art collection. French doors lead to a covered outdoor patio perfect for lounging and enjoying the pool. The adjacent dining room is roomy enough for a lively dinner party and leads to a sunny outdoor dining terrace.
The spacious open kitchen is a chef’s delight with professional grade appliances including a built-in oversized refrigerator, five-burner stove, and double ovens. A huge center island invites guests to linger. Granite countertops are virtually maintenance free. A breakfast nook looks onto a balmy outdoor patio and the grounds beyond. A large pass through to the dining room lends each space formality while keeping the open flow.
Follow the gleaming hardwood floors to the roomy den. Large, rustic double doors welcome you to the inviting space which features custom shelving for books as well as entertainment equipment. Across the hallway, a doorway leads to an underground wine storage area, naturally cooled by the earth.
On the main level of the home, find two bedrooms as well as a large in-home office. Each of the bedrooms is roomy and bright while the office features sliding glass doors to the deck. Two full bathrooms each feature lovely tile work. A powder room and laundry room with utility sink and storage round out the main floor.
Upstairs, the sumptuous master suite features a large bedroom with lofty beamed ceiling and sliding glass doors to a private balcony. A bonus area can be used as a sitting room, an exercise spot, a yoga/meditation retreat or more. A spacious walk-in closet has a built-in organization system. In the spa bathroom, a deep soaking tub is perfect for luxurious baths.
Outside, views of the Sonoma Valley abound from the many patios, terraces and decks around the home. Rock walls and meandering paths dot the naturally landscaped property and a seasonal creek in the distance flows beyond vintage oak trees, Manzanita and evergreen trees. A stone fire pit with built in seating affords views of the hillside while a sun drenched pool surrounded by flagstone patio awaits a summer party. A detached two-car garage with additional storage completes this picture perfect home.
With stunning views, a gorgeous home and fabulous indoor/outdoor appeal, 17485 Mallard Lane is a dream of a Wine Country home.
