EXQUISITE SONOMA MOUNTAIN RANCH PROPERTY
From the moment you pass through the unique gate designed by artist Michael Constantini, you are immediately greeted with thoughtful style and function. Designed by famed architect, Robert Zinkhan, the blending of modern and county motifs makes this home a Wine Country treasure. Zinkhan is known for his site-specific design, making the most of the natural landscape and views. A master of scale and proportion, Zinkhan works with his clients for a truly custom experience. Yoffi Farm, featured in California magazine, is set atop Sonoma Mountain, surrounded by breathtaking views and serenely situated in a majestic panorama. The pond with a fountain, small dock, and charming bench seating creates an idyllic escape as you enter the property.
The entry to the house is as spectacular as each of the other creative elements. From the slate circular drive, tranquil water feature, and vertical succulent living wall, your first steps up to the home are unforgettable. The exterior color scheme features a warm earth hue, reminiscent of the Sonoma Valley hills.
As you make your way through the entry, you'll continue to notice many distinctive design features like the curved wall, custom built-in cabinetry, large windows, and open, airy living spaces. The main living area includes an entertainment system with built-in speakers, a two-sided gas fireplace, and recessed lighting that casts a warm glow in the evenings. Large multi-slide glass doors allow for indoor/outdoor living and lead to the pool, spa and patio. Just off the living space is a quaint sitting area with contemporary floating shelves, and cabinetry. The expansive windows off of the living and dining areas allow the sunlight and valley views to spill in, adding to the bright and airy feel of the space and home. The circular formal dining room is perfect for entertaining and gathering around a large custom table that is a sculpture in its own right. A curved 13' credenza makes an elegant display for serving and storage and is another thoughtful element contributing to the entertaining potential.
As you leave the dining room, you'll find a large butler's panty with dumbwaiter, generous shelving and counter space, a wine fridge, Miele dishwasher, and a sink. This leads directly to the modern kitchen, which is another truly remarkable space. The dark concrete countertops complement the natural wood cabinetry. A large island sits in the middle of the kitchen creating an excellent prep space and providing generous storage. Stainless steel Miele and Thermador appliances make this kitchen a cook's dream. The home has subtle Japanese design elements throughout, and the custom wok station is another tribute to this aesthetic. The large glass French door refrigerator is located next to two custom pull-out cabinets. The kitchen also boasts built-in freezer drawers and an ice maker. Additional unique design features are the built-in bread box and pass through to the dining area. While the function of this space is extraordinary, the pasture, mountain, and valley views from the kitchen windows are simply breathtaking.
The bedrooms are located near the front of the home, providing privacy from the main living areas. A powder room at the entry features a statement cement sink in a rich clay color. A stunning office space is also found in this region of the home. The built-in bookshelves and rolling ladder provide you with your own personal library. There is also a large desk and a sliding door leading to a quaint private patio area which boasts beautiful landscaping including a lemon tree.
From here you'll make your way to the primary bedroom. This space is a sanctuary featuring dual spa-like bathrooms, each complete with individual walk-in closets. The first main bathroom begins with a large glass display case, and an expansive walk-in closet with abundant storage. The bathroom includes a steam shower, towel warmer, and personal dry sauna. The second main bathroom has warm earth tones, a floating vanity and large walk-in shower. There is a second spacious walk-in closet with built-in shelving and generous storage. The bedroom has a custom built-in bed with floating nightstands, an electric fireplace, and access to both the office patio and the pool area.
On the opposite side of the entry hallway you'll find a bedroom with its own private patio, and an en-suite bathroom featuring a walk-in shower. Near this bedroom is the laundry room with ample storage and another large office space attached.
The downstairs level is accessed from the staircase adjacent to the dining area and leads directly to a home gym space complete with mirrored walls and soft rubber flooring. This floor also houses an office/flex space with a full bathroom and another bedroom. There is access to an attached garage and a fully enclosed dog run from the gym space as well.
The mature landscaping around the home is truly beautiful. Large succulents, agave plants, manzanita trees, and stunning oaks are found throughout the property, and add to the serene setting. The pool area opens onto a large outdoor kitchen complete with a BBQ and bar with sink. The wood fired pizza oven was made by 6th generation Italian masons. A large hot tub is positioned perfectly to take in the incredible views while relaxing in your private oasis. Steps from the spa is a Japanese inspired Zen living space with a full bathroom, tatami mats, shoji screens, traditional soaking tub and meditating room. This area offers a relaxing spa experience from the comfort of your own home and is a wonderful guest house.
The separate multi-car garage includes a finished studio apartment above, complete with a kitchenette and balcony. There are Bosch appliances, a wine fridge, and breathtaking views. The large balcony looks out onto the barns and separate guest cottage below, and out to Mt. Hood, Sonoma Valley and north Sonoma County beyond. A full bathroom with shower is located on the bottom floor. Additionally, the garage has a lift, perfect for car collectors and enthusiasts. In total, the property has garage space for 11 cars.
The lower portion of the property was once an Arabian-breeding facility and has all the bones for an equestrian facility. It also has a lovely courtyard, fire pit, terraced rock walls and a catering kitchen in the barn, ideal for large events. This special spot is truly magical as the sun goes down. Equally suited to a working farm and social events, the lower property has unique pastoral features like a Redwood meditation grove, a running creek through oak studded woodland and further down a meandering path is a spacious enclosed gazebo, perfect for relaxing, entertaining and enjoying the fragrant summer nights of Wine Country. The barn has 12 stables total, 5 of which have front access and full back paddock. There are three pastures with water systems and outdoor animal shelters. An outdoor arena and indoor 'Hot Walk' barn that is also used for tractor storage make this property ideal for horses and more. A small barn apartment is perfect for overnight guests or visiting trainers. There is a feed barn, 4 car garage with shower and fenced vegetable gardens. The 2 bedroom 2 bathroom cottage is located near the tractor bam and has a spacious living room, and a deck with its own stunning views. This property is an animal lover's dream come true!
This sensational property offers endless potential for Wine Country and ranch style living. The architecture alone makes this home unforgettable.
