Sold | Bedrooms: 3 | Bathrooms: 3 | Square Feet: 1,846+/- | Lot Size: 1.32+/- AC


Situated along a riparian and wildlife corridor above the gentle turns of Sonoma Creek, 4870 Warm Springs Road is just minutes, but worlds away, from the village of Glen Ellen, home to world-class restaurants, cafes, inns, and wineries.

Enter through the private gate at the end of a country lane and you’re immediately embraced by mature live oak and olive trees that bring a quiet peace to the setting. A large covered porch flanks the front door and there’s a deck to the left of the house, where you can read in solitude, taking in the beauty around you.

But the absolute gem of this property - extending its daytime beauty into magic nights - is the open back deck that looks down at Sonoma Creek, the lifeblood of this whole region. Shielded from road noise and any sense that the bustling outer world even exists, the totally private backyard is framed by towering old-growth live oak, pine, and laurel trees that mottle the sun on bright summer days.

The 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom home is fully remodeled, with thoughtful design elements throughout. The kitchen combines culinary function with fabulous amenities, including natural stone counters from Mongolia, custom walnut cabinets, high-end stainless steel appliances, and a large pantry closet. The subtle blend of colors and design creates a delightful cohesiveness throughout the home, and the open layout allows for a comfortable flow between the kitchen, living room, and dining areas. A wall of windows and sliding doors face the back deck, bringing in natural light by day, and the remote-operated gas fireplace in the living room is perfect for cool winter nights and mornings.

The guest and primary bedrooms are on opposite sides of the house, ensuring privacy for all. Both guest bedrooms have beautiful heirloom wood flooring and large closets. One of the guest bedrooms has an ensuite bathroom with a large shower. The second guest bedroom has access to the deck and backyard. Its separate bathroom features a large shower with gray porcelain tile flooring and a vanity matching the materials in the kitchen. This bathroom is in a back hallway that can be closed off for privacy. It also has a closet with a washer and dryer, along with additional cabinetry with ample storage space. All three custom showers in this remodeled home have sliding Pavia etched glass walls for privacy, another thoughtful element that adds to the cohesive design throughout.

On the opposite side of the house, a large home office or flex space looks out at the front yard, with a sliding door leading to the reading deck at the front side of the house. The primary bedroom is down a short hallway that offers privacy from the rest of the home. Quiet, bright, and spacious, the primary bedroom has a ceiling fan and floor-to-ceiling windows with custom window treatments that can be set for privacy or left fully open to reveal the beautiful green views down to the creek. There's another private reading deck off to one side. The primary bathroom has a spa-like feel, with a deep designer soaking tub, a walk-in shower and a double vanity with the same imported stone countertop as in the kitchen. The bathroom windows have custom blinds, allowing natural light to enter, while providing privacy. A double walk-in closet has generous storage space, with built-in shelving and hanging racks.

The expansive decks surrounding this home provide lots of space for sipping wine with friends and family, for barbecuing dinners, or for experiencing the tranquil landscape on your own. The large back yard is fully fenced in, with self-closing gates, and a picturesque pathway that you can follow down to the creek. This property is graced with frequent sightings of deer and fox at dawn and with cranes and hawks riding the thermals at dusk, above the quiet flow of the Sonoma Creek.

4870 Warm Springs Road has a spiritual presence. It is a sanctuary in Wine Country.
