Features

Resting serenely on more than 3 acres in California’s Sonoma Valley, this dramatic gated residence is a stunning example of Modernist architecture, incorporating Cubist and Mediterranean design influences. Representing the essence of understated sophistication, it at once complements and contrasts its just under one-acre premium Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard and its surrounding landscape.

Energy + Serenity = Perfection           

The home’s interior comprises not so much “rooms” as “spaces,” not meant to be merely occupied for their utilitarian purposes, but also to be savored for their aesthetics, and appreciated for their grace and flow and ambiance of tranquil abiding. Yet, there is a palpable energy here. In the end, it offers a perfect meld of light, shadow, lines, angles, peacefulness and vivacity.

Upon entering this monument to creative minimalism, one is immediately struck by the openness and light borne of an abundance of white on walls and ceilings, a multitude of windows and French doors, recessed lighting, and floors of Spanish Porcelanosa tile. Soaring ceilings in the living and dining areas allow clerestory windows to enhance the magical radiance of the spaces, and the expansive gallery walls of the central hallway are perfect for the display of artwork. The living room is further enhanced by its fireplace with Caesarstone mantle and surround, and its access to a vineyard-side patio, perfect for al fresco dining and entertaining.

Sustenance + Calm Abiding = Contentment

Moving to the gourmet kitchen, one can imagine the chef preparing a special repast while utilizing the stainless Wolf and Sub-zero appliances, beautiful custom cabinetry, and spacious and versatile center island. While awaiting the culinary bounty, relatives and guests may enjoy the adjoining sitting room with its fireplace and vineyard view, or move to the adjacent combination play and media room.

Even the most discerning overnight visitors will be comfortable in the two convenient downstairs bedrooms, or, perhaps, in the guest suite that shares the master suite level. Both upstairs accommodations are complemented by luxury baths, fireplaces and lovely views.

In keeping with the Sonoma Wine Country’s traditional indoor-outdoor lifestyle, the home’s surrounding grounds offer numerous amenities, including a beautiful pool and adjacent two-level patio, a charming and spacious wisteria-covered pergola, a raised vegetable bed, and a patio overlooking the lawn.

Neighborhood


Sonoma

About halfway between Napa and Petaluma lies the small but significant town of Sonoma, where you’ll find an engaging blend of small-town charm and urban sophistication. In the midst of the breathtaking beauty of the Wine Country and rich with cultural heritage, Sonoma is the hub of the Sonoma Valley.

The city’s historic plaza is designed in the traditional style of a Mexican town. The town square is surrounded by the City Hall, Mission San Francisco Solano, and the Presidio of Sonoma. The entire plaza is a National Historic Landmark and is the focal point of the town. The town was named as a Preserve America Community in 2010. Year-round community festivals and celebrations attract locals and visitors to the picturesque center of town.

The robust agriculture of the area guarantees a very popular farmers market from April to October. Local restaurants are supplied with an abundance of fresh, organic produce. The fine wines of Sonoma Valley add to the many five-star restaurants you’ll find near the Plaza.

More than just a place for foodies and wine connoisseurs, Sonoma has fun to offer little ones as well. Sonoma TrainTown Railroad covers 10 acres with its quarter-scale train, petting zoo, carousel, and other amusement park rides. TrainTown claims to be one-fifth the size of Disneyland but twice the fun.
