CONTEMPORARY COUNTRY HOME MINUTES TO PLAZA
CHIC SONOMA LIFESTYLE WITH ALL THE AMENITIES
This exquisite home on a quiet country lane is the epitome of Wine Country chic. Designed with indoor/outdoor living in mind, the home is filled with natural light thanks to large windows, atrium ceilings, oversized sliding glass doors and numerous skylights. Close to the historic Plaza and convenient to the best of Sonoma Wine Country, this home still retains its country charm but with all the modern amenities.
The home, which feels like a family compound, begins with a welcoming front porch and beautifully manicured grounds. From there, enter an airy foyer that sets the tone for the rest of the house: open and bright, with clean sight lines throughout. A wall of glass, including an oversized slider affords beautiful views of the back patio and pool beyond. The large living room’s tranquil ambiance invites either entertaining or relaxation. Grab a book and sit by the wood burning fireplace, watch birds visit the magnificent backyard maple tree or, throw open the sliding glass door and entertain to your heart’s content. The open concept floor plan is incredibly versatile and leads next to the dining area, generous enough to seat a dozen guests comfortably. Graced with atrium ceilings, wide plank oak floors, designer lighting and other details, the wow factor is solidly in place.
An impressive gourmet kitchen is defined by a huge center island topped with statuary marble, chosen for its durability and honed finish. The island includes bar seating and is a fantastic gathering place for guests. Stainless steel appliances include an impressive six-burner Thermador range with griddle and pot filler. Custom cabinetry throughout the kitchen is finished in a crisp white color with a large-format subway tile backsplash to match. Countertops are honed granite for an overall effect that is clean and pristine. A cozy sitting area in the kitchen allows for a respite from culinary masterpieces. Or, create a breakfast nook that overlooks the front yard. An adjacent pantry/ mud room includes a utility sink and loads of storage and is perfect for staging a party, creating a bar, or small appliance storage. A door to the back yard is ideal for accessing the pool.
Just beyond, a large family room anchors this end of the home. Perfect for kicking back, the room is accentuated by a dramatic gas fireplace. A full bathroom with marble shower and a separate bonus room, which can be used as a home office, play room, or exercise area round out this end of the home.
At the home’s other end, the en-suite master bedroom is an enviable sanctuary with sliding glass doors to the back patio and pool area as well as large windows that keep the room filled with light. The spa style bathroom is a tranquil retreat with marble blanketing the counters, floor and shower. A double vanity and large walk in shower add to the amenities plus, the room is sized for a future soaking tub. Walk in closets with built-in shelving and custom window coverings round out the master suite.
Two additional bedrooms are both airy and bright and share a large full bathroom with double vanity and tub/shower combo. In this home, two of the three bathrooms have access to the backyard and pool, making summer swim season easy and fun!
Outside, the spacious yard combines gravel paths, a large lawn area, and trim boxwood. Across from the large patio with firepit, a storage room can hold pool toys and leisure equipment while an adjacent bonus room with heat, AC and large sliding glass doors is perfect as a yoga studio, artist’s retreat, or outdoor rumpus room. The back yard has space for a garden area with galvanized steel planters and an enchanting al fresco dining room strung with outdoor lights. A bit further on, a stand alone office is clad in rustic reclaimed wood. The in ground pool with solar heating and diving board includes a built in spa.
Property recently has been used as a short-term vacation rental.
Whether enjoying the best of Wine Country at home or entertaining guests in the bucolic Valley of the Moon, this home is the best of the best. Close to everything but in an incomparable country setting.
