Project Description

75 Fremont Drive, Sonoma

Offered at $2,400,000

Located in Northern California’s famous Carneros wine region at the crossroads between the Bay Area and Wine Country, this ideal destination is positioned approx. 45 minutes from San Francisco, 20 minutes from Napa and 10 minutes to the downtown Sonoma Plaza.

Level approx. ¾ acre parcel enjoys both sunrises and sunsets, ample parking, gardens and orchards, plentiful water, Phase III power and an upgraded septic system. The approx. 6,350 sq. ft. compound offers the diversity of a high visibility location along with intimacy and privacy within artistic, gated walls. With close to 200 feet of frontage along this destination roadway, the property offers the highest exposure to tourists and area locals. Limited Commercial zoning allows an array of uses. The compound is comprised of a main residence, a large studio apartment and commercial space.

Expansive commercial space offers 16+ distinct spaces for specialized uses. There are several galleries, private offices, a library, multiple storage areas and accesses to a lush patio courtyard amidst redwoods. The space provides multiple ceiling heights, custom tile and concrete flooring and multiple skylights. Two kitchenettes provide entertaining autonomy.

Originally built in the 1940’s and beautifully renovated, the 3-bedroom (2 suites) residence was one of the original area homes. It features a great room with 10+ handmade glass windows overlooking a large garden with outdoor kitchen and fabulous dining area. The residence boasts a fully tiled dine-in kitchen, original refinished hardwood floors, 3 custom wall-to-wall tile bathrooms and multiple accesses to the outdoors including a private spa patio.

The uniqueness of the offering is enhanced by verdant, organically cultivated grounds and gardens. There is a 99-vine producing hobby vineyard, variety of trees: plum, apricot, pear, apple, mandarin orange, navel orange and walnuts. Abundant wine country wildlife is present such as hummingbirds, frogs, owls, dragonflies, ravens, dove, fox and other vineyard loving creatures.

The estate exudes a unique, artistic creativity having been owned and curated by artists for 32 years. Most recently it has been taken to a new level of beauty by the famous artist, Shiloh Sophia; see ShilohSophiaStudios.com. Currently the Cosmic Cowgirls Ranch, the estate is home and venue for Shiloh’s on-site and worldwide broadcast education series.
