HILLTOP HOME AFFORDS GORGEOUS VIEWS, SECLUDED LOCATION     

CLOSE TO TOWN YET WORLDS AWAY FROM IT ALL

Just a stone’s throw from the historic Sonoma Plaza, this beautiful home embodies the Wine Country lifestyle with open spaces, a light, bright interior and views of vineyards and mountains.  The enviable location mid-valley is a nature lover’s dream and affords far reaching vistas of the surrounding hillsides and verdant vineyards of the rolling landscape.

Upon entry, a wall of windows in the formal living room makes a dramatic statement.  A beamed atrium ceiling helps highlight the tree tops and views across to Sonoma Mountain.  A wood burning fireplace - one of several in the home - with beautiful marble mantel stands ready for winter afternoons. The adjacent formal dining room is a beautiful space with built-in cabinetry and French doors that open onto a large wrap around deck with outdoor dining area. 

The Great Room features a large open plan kitchen and family room.  In the kitchen, country cabinets are in abundance including those in a large center island.  Stainless steel appliances and lots of counter space make short work of parties and casual dinners alike. A skylight floods the space with natural light. A breakfast nook is tucked into a cozy recessed window that overlooks the rock garden outside. The family room features another of the home’s fireplaces. A laundry room with utility sink, powder room and access to a three-car garage round out this side of the home. 

In the master suite, savor sunsets from the hot tub on your private deck or, watch the full moon through the French doors as you drift off to sleep. The tranquil space features an en suite bath with soaking tub and a dressing area with two enormous closets.  This area - as well as many others throughout the home - are brightened by skylights. Two roomy guest bedrooms also maximize their respective views.

Across the breezeway find a bonus room, perfect as an artist studio, yoga retreat or hobby room.  A two-car garage features a built-in workshop and a home office upstairs.  Added functionality comes from a stand-alone storage room and a garden shed.

Outside, the home’s two +/- acres are a nature lover’s paradise.  Flowering plants buzz with the activity of bees and hummingbirds.  A natural rock garden is resplendent with lichen and lizards. A fenced area for vegetables is ready for summer’s bounty. A pergola offers a shaded area to eat or relax while a large flat spot would be perfect for a pool. And everywhere you look, the far-reaching vistas showcase Sonoma and the San Pablo Bay far beyond.

As either a permanent residence or a Wine Country getaway home, 640 Mountain Avenue offers the best of all worlds: a tranquil spot to unwind just far enough away from the rest of the world.
