The bedroom, or living space, is at the end of the hall and it opens onto a serene, shady patio, which is perfect for taking in the warm summer evenings. There is also a spacious walk-in closet with lighting and abundant storage space. This downstairs unit houses the utility closet where you can access a separate cooling system for the first floor.

As you leave the first level you’ll follow a wide staircase to the main living space. The high ceilings and windows let in plenty of natural light and the open floor plan provides ample space for both entertaining and lounging. The kitchen has white cabinets and stainless steel appliances. The open shelving area above the sink is perfect for displaying special cookware or wine glasses from your favorite Sonoma wineries. The focal point of this room is the iron spiral staircase. This unique and creative design piece is one of the things that makes the Carneros Lofts condos so remarkable.

There is another full bathroom with a tub and shower combo featuring beautiful grey tile located on the second floor, as well as a spacious bedroom with large windows. The third floor of this condo has a loft layout for the primary bedroom, and you’ll also find a full bathroom with another tub and shower combo. The laundry closet is conveniently located across from the bathroom, and it includes generous storage space.

The light grey wood-grain laminate flooring and custom up-or-down window treatments found throughout the home add to the modern aesthetic. The star feature of the third floor is the balcony found just off the breezeway from the bathroom. As you open the balcony door you’re greeted with a delightful seating area overlooking the shared courtyard and out to the beautiful Sonoma landscape. This special spot is ideal for enjoying your morning coffee or sharing a bottle of wine with friends.

Parking is made easy with a private gated garage and two dedicated parking spaces. The residential area of the complex also features gates at both entry/exit points, which provides added security and privacy during nights and weekends.
