Perfect as a year round home, or wine country weekend getaway, this unique enclave and nostalgic setting reflect the timeless beauty and charm of Sonoma Valley. The serene property lies just a few blocks above the Village of Glen Ellen and just below historic Jack London State Park. A perfect blend of country living and in-town accessibility, it offers approx. 1.15 acre of usable land and the convenience of public utilities.
The tranquil retreat includes a main house, guest cottage, garage, inground pool/spa, hot tub with outdoor shower, bocce court and multiple stone patios and decks, all interconnected by groomed, stone lined paths. The main house offers 4 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms, with the dining area, living room, kitchen, one bedroom and full bath on the main floor. A charming staircase connects to the upper level with second full bath and three bedrooms including a sunlit master with wooded views and access to private patio.
From the front patio and deck, you’ll enter into an open dining area with vaulted ceilings and large antique iron chandelier. A few steps below, is the living room with abundant windows, built-in shelving, wood-burning stove and cozy sitting areas. French doors open to a spacious deck with seating, ideal for outdoor living or entertaining. Also adjoining the central dining area is a sunny kitchen with butcher block counters, Viking stove and plenty of built-in storage. Vintage details have been thoughtfully integrated into every room, with furnishings and décor by Sarah Anderson of Chateau Sonoma. Custom colors and textures accent the interiors, which feature authentic 1910 fir floors, beadboard walls, antique fixtures, high ceilings, wood framed windows and French doors. Both baths have claw foot tubs with showers above.
Detached from the main home and across the patio, is an enchanting one bedroom guest cottage with full tiled bath, storage closet and extra sitting room/sleeping porch.
The private, gently-sloped grounds are sheltered by native oaks and a variety of mature trees yet feature numerous sunny areas for relaxation or play – bocce court, pool and spa, children’s play structure and space for a potential hobby vineyard, orchard or barn. The land is fenced with a main custom gate and convenient gated service entry.
