The warmth of natural materials and the classic style of America’s rural farmhouse mixed with the aesthetics and functionality of modern architecture culminate beautifully in this property. Details, integrating the contemporary California lifestyle, provide a truly unique and desirable home experience.
Classic, crisp white board and batten exterior play off the standing seam metal roof and compliment the serene setting. The overall feel of the main 4 bedroom/4.5bathroom structure, is elegant yet perfectly informal. The exterior helps to incorporate organic elements, through abundant natural light and thoughtful landscaping to bring the gorgeous views, into the home.
Specifically, the newly constructed home (completed in 2016) resulted in a tasteful expansion by marrying the existing home with a substantial addition. This addition created an L-shape that allows the exterior pool terrace to capitalize on privacy and create an intimate courtyard feel. Walls of glass and expansive stacking doors that open onto three “outdoor rooms” give panoramic views of the Dry Creek Valley and surrounding vineyards.
An entertainer’s paradise, this 5,500± square foot home, boasts an upscale kitchen, open to the main indoor and outdoor living spaces. Premium appliances and finishes include a dramatic walnut butcher block island with prep sink, oil rubbed soapstone counters, Waterworks™ plumbing fixtures and a custom cedar wine room with glass panel doors round out the “wow” factor to share with friends and family. Overall the main living spaces come together under a cross-beamed ceiling. This dramatic architectural element ties the space together and allows for the perfect flow of light and life.
The “extras” that sets this home apart, are truly breathtaking. On the property, sits a large (575± square foot) pool house with luxury guest accommodations. This structure also opens up to the pool terrace, setting it apart from the main residence, giving guest privacy without isolation. A three car garage helps to keep all of your cars and tools of recreation secure. And if gardening is your preferred hobby, the storage barn and potting shed will help you to perfectly cultivate all or part of this 9+ acre property.
The expansive pool terrace, itself is finished in Pennsylvania Blue Stone. A dramatic stone water wall anchors the pool design and an expansive lawn by the pool are ideal for summer lawn games.
Conveniently located, this property is positioned approximately 1 mile from Healdsburg Plaza and approximately 67 miles north of San Francisco. Healdsburg is a vibrant community located at the gateway of Sonoma County’s legendary wine growing regions of Dry Creek Valley, Alexander Valley and Russian River Valley. Years ago, the city of Healdsburg was a dusty, agricultural burg devoted to grape growing and winemaking. Today, Healdsburg remains a small town that celebrates its agricultural heritage but also has a lot of class.
Healdsburg is an easy drive up Hwy 101 N, less than 70 miles from San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge and commercial air travel is provided at the nearby Charles M. Schultz Sonoma County Airport. It is the wine country of choice for residents and visitors who are sure to appreciate the natural beauty, near perfect weather and abundant wine country amenities. This home is perfectly nestled between privacy and cultural experiences.
