2046/2050 Hale Road Sonoma, CA
ON A CLEAR DAY YOU CAN SEE FOREVER…
EXQUISITE WINE COUNTRY LOCATION WITH ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES
A property like this comes around rarely and when it does, it makes for an amazing opportunity to create one’s own Wine Country masterpiece while being able to enjoy it immediately. With breathtaking panoramic views, oak studded hills, privacy, level building parcels and easy proximity to the historic Sonoma Plaza, 2046 and 2050 Hale Road awaits.
These two parcels are being sold together and are just a short drive from all the best of Wine Country including signature restaurants, top level wineries and so much more. Although two guest beautiful units already exist on the property, the opportunity to create a compound presents itself immediately. Imagine one exquisite main house, or multiple homes, as the extensive infrastructure is already in place and truly a rare find in Sonoma Valley.
Just minutes from the Sonoma Plaza, the double gated access takes you to a location that is unmatched in its pristine rural setting. Gorgeous vintage Oaks, Bay and Manzanita trees give way to a stylish guesthouse, perfectly tucked into the landscape. Nestled between the trees, the steel and glass contemporary design brings together floor-to-ceiling windows and sliding glass doors to showcase views of the property, the mature gardens and the world beyond, including east to the Mayacamas and Arrowhead mountains and Mount Diablo; south over vineyards, Schocken Hill and the San Francisco City and Bay; and west to Mount Tamalpais and the Sonoma Mountain ridge. An additional guest studio, wine cellar plus workshop is an added property bonus.
The Guest House:
The property’s one bedroom guesthouse boasts an open floor plan, elegant fir cabinetry and woodwork, a wood burning fireplace, as well as concrete floors with radiant heat. Attention to detail is at every turn in this house. Custom shelving provides both storage and display space. The chef’s kitchen is fully outfitted and includes a mirrored backsplash that beautifully reflects the natural landscape, bringing the outdoors inside.
Just outside, an outdoor lounge area with stylish chandelier stands ready for a summer aperitif and barbequing while beyond, an atmospheric dining terrace is crowned with a canopy of grapevines. Overlooking the flower gardens and fruit orchard, the dining terrace is a romantic respite with a Mediterranean flair and perfectly outfitted for a sizeable dinner party with a nearby prep, serving prep and storage area.
Across from the main guesthouse, find a freestanding three car garage with abundant storage, the laundry area, and parking for three vehicles. The systems for heating and hot water are controlled here.
Studio Apartment, Workshop and Wine Cellar:
At the southwest corner of the property and boasting gorgeous views, find a combination studio apartment/workshop space. Ideal for family and overnight guests, the studio features a wall of glass, tile floors and full bathroom. The adjacent workshop comprises an enormous space with a myriad of uses including vehicle storage for the car enthusiast, an art studio for the creative, a yoga retreat, a home winemaking or beer brewing facility, or whatever your imagination can conjure up. Outfitted with cabinets, the space is handy for all manner of tools, art materials, gardening implements or other supplies. The temperature-controlled wine storage room can house literally thousands of bottles.
The expansive properties combine spectacular native trees and chaparral with a formal perennial flower garden and orchard. Completely irrigated, the mature gardens include a wide variety of plantings with roses, crape myrtle, peonies, grasses, dahlias, lavender, rosemary and other herbs among them. Fruit trees include citrus, plum, fig, pear and more. Rock walls and well-placed sitting areas dot the property – all taking the best advantage of the bucolic setting and the views.
Set on approximately 8 (+/-) total acres, the two parcels create an incomparable site on which to build an estate or family compound. Boasting views in every direction and several acres of flat land on two legal parcels, the property has a total of 8-bedroom septic capacity as well as a power and water infrastructure, deer fencing, gates and driveways. There is also the possibility of purchasing a neighboring 2 (+/-) acre parcel that would add an additional 4-bedroom septic capacity, for a total of 12 bedrooms to create the perfect Wine Country compound.
An award-winning vineyard comprises three blocks: Pinot Noir, Zinfandel, and a field-blend Claret. Originally planted by legendary viticulturalist Carmine Indindoli, the vineyard, Sentinel Oak Vineyard, is named for the enormous heritage oak tree at its center, making it as beautiful as it is productive.
With acres of buildable land and an infrastructure to support it, an award-winning vineyard, gorgeous gardens and amazing spots to entertain, 2046 and 2050 Hale Road is a slice of heaven in Wine Country. Imagine the possibilities as you live there and plan your own Wine Country dream escape.
