2045 Lawndale Road Kenwood, CA
WINE COUNTRY LIVING AT ITS FINEST
STYLISH HOME MEETS COUNTRY AMBIANCE
Just past the Annadel State Park Trailhead lies this stunning and stylish Wine Country home. Known as Coyote Hill, this home is set on almost five acres of land and accentuated by gorgeous Wine Country views, airy cathedral ceilings, an open floor plan with indoor/outdoor appeal and so much more.
An enviable location on Lawndale Road in Kenwood gives this home incredible access to some of the best hiking and biking in Northern California via Annadel and Sugarloaf Ridge State Parks. The quiet country road provides a serene escape from everyday worries while the property’s knoll top setting affords breathtaking views of the landscape beyond including Gunsight Rock, Sugarloaf Ridge, the Kunde vineyards and the Mayacama Mountain range.
Inside, a formal foyer leads to the light-filled Great Room. Grand in scale yet intimate in feel, the Great Room lends itself to both entertaining and family relaxation. A soaring beamed ceiling is highlighted by extensive use of wood while a bank of French doors bathes the room in natural light. Reclaimed fir floors portray scenes from another life with nail and knot holes and add an elegant yet tasteful rusticity to the entire interior.
A chef’s kitchen commands one end of the room - the focal point, an immense island topped in beautiful Iroko wood. Here, custom cabinetry and open shelving frame a fabulous and functional cast iron AGA stove - any chef’s dream and one that this kitchen was designed around. Details are important throughout this home including the kitchen backsplash - done in unique handmade subway tiles - as well as the deep Rohl farm sink, the integrated dishwasher and Sub Zero refrigerator, the bar sink, efficient office area and the striking window overlooking the garden and mountains beyond. Perfect for entertaining, the open floor plan dining room and living room share the stage with the kitchen - designed as the true heart of the home and the perfect place to cook, linger, mingle or relax and regroup. A walk in pantry, temperature controlled wine closet and large laundry/mud room complete the kitchen area.
Off the Great Room, two bedrooms, each with its own full bath, are large and bright and feature tall ceilings and closet built-ins. Each bathroom is individual in style - one with a playful tropical colorful scheme and the other with a cool glass tiled tub and shower.
At the far end of the Great Room, a rustic wall done in redwood reclaimed from a chicken coop and a spiral staircase lead to an office loft area. Further on, find a den/media room complete with custom library shelving and molding as well as French doors to the back deck.
The master bedroom with en-suite bath is an oasis of calm. Highlighted by the same high ceilings and window accents found throughout the home, the room is a private sanctuary. The en-suite bathroom features an enormous shower and dual sink vanity done in Jerusalem Gold limestone. Two sets of French doors lead to both the side deck with private hot tub as well as the enormous back deck, covered for shade, privacy and inclement weather.
Outside, numerous outdoor areas await. Start with the large back deck with room enough for dining, relaxing or ogling the surrounding views. The adjoining patio comprises an impressive 1600 +/- square feet of sunlit space, made even more impressive by its thick imported stone and sparkling pool. It’s easy to picture a family gathering, informal wedding or even a casual dinner party out here under the stars.
The remainder of the property’s almost five acres is graced by walking paths and an incredible mix vegetation as well as olive trees - including a few 100-year old heritage specimens from a bygone era - Fir, Oak, Madrone, Bay and more. Additionally, a kitchen garden with raised beds produces an abundance of vegetables during all four seasons while a large terraced orchard contains apples, figs, plums, apricot, nectarine, persimmon, pomegranate and much more. Deer resistant and drought tolerant, the property’s landscaping is any gardener’s dream.
A detached three-car garage with built-in workbench has a bonus room above. Perfect as a guest suite, media room, retreat, yoga or art studio, the space has a full bathroom and abundant storage. Below the garage, a beautifully detailed dry-stacked stone wall and reclaimed redwood door house a possible wine cellar, temperature-cooled by the surrounding hillside.
Built with relaxed living and entertaining in mind, 2045 Lawndale Road is a perfect Wine Country retreat. The home speaks volumes about the ease of Northern California living with its indoor/outdoor feel, access to exceptional nature pursuits as well as the relaxed ambiance that underscores the Sonoma Valley.
