ELEGANT HOME ON VERDANT COUNTRY PROPERTY

VIEWS, TRANQUILITY, CONVENIENCE

On a small side road off Arnold Drive known locally as El Rancho Feliz Road lies this lovely Shangri-La.  With quiet country surroundings that give way to a beautiful home and manicured grounds, the views of the Mayacama Mountains are an added treat from almost every room.  Just minutes from the Sonoma Plaza this home is worlds away in terms of its tranquil environment.

The beautiful home is both grand and welcoming with atrium ceilings, large windows and French doors that flood the space with natural light. Views to the pool, back patio and gorgeous vintage oaks bring the beautiful outdoors inside the home.  The formal living room and gracious dining room are elegant, with an open floor plan, wood burning fireplace, and beautiful staircase with balcony.

Just off the living room, the library is a study in serenity with incredible views provided by a beautiful bowed window and French doors.  Built-in shelves are ready for a collection of books or other family treasures.  The muted paint palette highlights the view of the outdoor greenery.

Down the hallway, two bedrooms share a large­­­ full bathroom.  This private enclave is perfect for guests or family members. Up the beautiful staircase find the master suite.  The subdued space is spa-like with neutral carpeting and French doors opening onto a private balcony with stairs leading to the pool and gardens.  A sitting area is graced by large windows overlooking the bucolic yard.  A hallway leads to two enormous walk-in closets and a sumptuous bathroom complete with soaking tub and walk-in shower. 

Downstairs, the huge kitchen gives unrestricted access to the backyard and pool area.  A second wood burning fireplace keeps the breakfast area cozy while an enormous center island and large open space are perfect for entertaining guests.  Skylights in the beamed ceiling bring natural light into the lovely room.  A large pantry, full bathroom and laundry room with access to the carport round out the space. 

The outdoors beckon from almost every room in this home with a loggia just off the kitchen area and the pool and verdant lawn beyond.  A beautiful barn on the property is perfect for equestrian pursuits, a car collection, gardening equipment or whatever your fancy.  There is also a small paddock available for animals.

Limitless possibilities await in this beautiful and welcoming home.  Either as a permanent residence or weekend getaway, 16528 Arnold Drive won’t disappoint.
