CONTEMPORARY FLAVOR MEETS WINE COUNTRY WARMTH
TASTEFUL HOME IN SCENIC SETTING
A tranquil country location sets the stage for this beautiful light-filled contemporary home at the border of Glen Ellen and Kenwood in Sonoma Valley. Built with entertaining in mind, the main home, detached guest suite and pool house each embody the indoor/outdoor lifestyle inherent to Wine Country living.
In the main house, a wide wrap-around porch brings a timeless and welcoming design. Inside, white walls and built-in shelving are the blank canvases on which to display an art collection or treasured pieces of personal history. Clean lines and gleaming hardwood floors enhance the contemporary aesthetics. French doors in most of the rooms beckon summer breezes while a gas fireplace with a decorative metal surround adds a cozy element. The open floor plan kitchen, living room and dining room flow seamlessly and portray the warm ambiance echoed throughout the home. The kitchen is accentuated by quartz stone countertops, custom cabinets with recessed panels and contemporary hardware, a sit-down island and a set of large windows with views of the front garden. A Bosch double oven, Wolf 5-burner cooktop and U-Line wine fridge lead a parade of top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances.
Two of the four bedrooms are en suite with the master bedroom featuring French doors to a private terrace overlooking a fabulously verdant neighboring meadow. The spa-like master bathroom features a soaking tub, two separate vanities and a glass shower. Two of the guest bedrooms share a full bathroom which also doubles as a powder room and is generous in scale and sumptuous in feel.
In a separate building the adjacent two car detached garage with its hi-tech glass doors also houses the guest suite, a homey spot perfect for overnight visitors with its own full bath and private entrance.
Further down the property near Sonoma Creek is the sun-splashed pool along with an airy pool house with wet bar/kitchen area and colorful mosaic tiles. The full interior bathroom, plus changing area and outdoor shower area enhance this property and the feel of a fun outdoor playground is always evident. A large willow designed arbor shades a part of the pool area and allows for a grand spot to entertain, whether it be lavishly for friends or an intimate dinner with family.
Outside, a versatile mix of hard wood decking, flagstone, gravel and paved pathways meander through the property’s landscaping which includes natural elements like vintage oak trees as well as drought tolerant plants like lavender, native grasses, fruit trees and more. Raised beds, rock walls and terraced levels create dimension and texture. Views to the Mayacama Mountains as well as a nearby restored vintage barn define the rolling landscape. Willow branch fencing around the home and pool gives filtered privacy. Buzzing bees and the sounds of a of a year-round creek highlight the property’s quiet solitude.
With nearby access to world class hiking and biking in both Annadel and Sugarloaf State Parks as well as close to both the villages of Glen Ellen and Kenwood and minutes from historic Sonoma Plaza, 1331 Dawn Hill Road is just the sort of home of which Wine Country dreams are made.
