AMAZING CRAFTSMAN-STYLE HOME AND GORGEOUS GARDENS IN A PARK-LIKE SETTING MINUTES FROM SONOMA PLAZA

 

The spirit of old Sonoma can be felt throughout this amazing property located just minutes from the historic Plaza. Beginning with the stunning Craftsman-style home and including the gorgeous manicured grounds on just over an acre of land, the entire oak-studded property exudes a historic sense of place. Close to the best of Wine Country including world class wineries, restaurants and more, this home belongs on your short list.

 

Updated and maintained with meticulous detail, every inch of the stunning three-bedroom, three-bathroom home and property harkens back to a simpler time. Screened-in porches are ideal spots for a languorous glass of iced tea or wine, or a restful night’s sleep during a hot Sonoma evening. Inside, outside, and throughout, find period details including custom woodwork like wainscotting and beadboard, mullioned windows, beamed and coffered ceilings, original hardware, and even a charming porte cochere.

 

Generous in size and proportion, the home’s gracious interior features a formal living and dining room, both highlighted by the built-in cabinetry customary in a Craftsman-style home. A wood burning fireplace is flanked by two window seats, perfect for reading by a cozy fire while the rest of the rooms are ideal for entertaining guests or family.

 

The large chef’s kitchen stands ready for gourmet meal prep. Customary cabinetry tops abundant counter space done in a mix of granite and butcher block with a mosaic tile backsplash. Stainless steel appliances include a six-burner Wolf range with grill and a large vented hood with heat lamp, a glass-fronted Sub-Zero fridge, double ovens, and an icemaker and wine fridge from U-Line. The adjacent breakfast nook leads to the recently added family room. The spacious room is crowned with a cathedral ceiling and ringed by Marvin windows, providing a sunny outlook to the back garden and pool area.

 

The home’s two guest bedrooms are sunny and bright and give access to an outdoor deck with shade trellis. Surprising details such as a small vestibule with clerestory windows and unique floor detail can be found throughout the beautiful and thoughtful home. The primary bedroom is a private sanctuary. The en suite bath has two vanities and a walk-in shower with rain showerhead. French doors provide access to the outdoor deck. The three-bedroom home lives like a four bedroom thanks to an upstairs suite with sitting area, bedroom, and full bathroom with jetted soaking tub. French doors open onto a newly installed balcony with views of the property.

 

Additional details for the main house include a large laundry room with storage, a welcoming front porch, the back deck with four-person hot tub, three zones for heating and air conditioning, and Phantom screens that grace the exterior doors.

 

A stand-alone guest suite also functions as a pool house/cabana. Oversized sliding glass doors lead to an open living room and full kitchen. Guests will enjoy the bedroom and full bath with claw foot tub and large walk-in shower. A huge loft with skylights can be accessed via a marine-style ladder or an outdoor staircase and deck with views of Sonoma Mountain. On the first floor, a large screened porch is perfect for sleeping on hot summer nights. The guest suite features two heat/AC pumps to keep things comfortable.

 

Bordered by two seasonal creeks, the fully fenced and gated 1.3 +/- acre property is highlighted by gorgeous and well-maintained gardens. Too many trees and plants to list in full, envision fruit trees (apple, citrus, pear, persimmon), a beautiful Japanese maple and a Copperleaf, a stately Deodar Cedar, Crepe Myrtle, Bay, Mulberry, and more. Throughout the property, towering oaks include both Valley and Heritage and provide lush greenery, privacy, and shade. Flowering plants include azalea, jasmine, lavender, peony, rhododendron, and roses (climbing and tea), among many others. Affording a fragrant entry to the backyard, a stunning 50-foot wisteria-topped arbor leads along one side of the property and makes a glorious spot for family celebrations. Stone steps, rock walls, and meandering pathways lead to incredible outdoor areas including the huge 16-foot by 40-foot in-ground pool with waterfall and its 2,000 feet of bluestone patio. An outdoor kitchen includes a natural gas grill, sink, fridge, and storage. A stone fireplace with seating keeps things cozy. Fully irrigated using a separate well for the landscape and featuring artful lighting, the entire garden is a wonderous place to entertain or relax in the splendor of Sonoma’s natural surroundings.

 

Rounding out the property is a four-plus car garage with 10-foot doors and 11-foot ceilings to accommodate an RV or boat. The bright space includes a full workshop with workbench and abundant storage. Upstairs, a huge bonus area with wood flooring and skylights can be used as an artist’s loft, dance studio, exercise room, home office, party barn, or sleeping loft. The possibilities are limitless.

 

Whether looking for a true Wine Country retreat property or, an unbelievable place to call your permanent home, this gorgeous home and property check all the boxes and more.

Neighborhood Gallery

880 Agua Caliente Road West

A small town with a rich history, the center of the locavore food movement, and situated in the heart of Wine Country, the city of Sonoma is content to play country mouse to its more citified cousin, Napa. You won't find enormous tour buses disgorging hundreds of passengers in downtown Sonoma; the city of 10,000 residents is mostly laid-back and quiet.

Centered on what many call one of the most beautiful town plazas in the state, with its historic, preserved Mission that dates back to 1823, Sonoma has the feel of a small country town -- that is, if a small country town boasted more than a dozen tasting rooms of award-winning wineries. Surrounded by vineyards and more than 60 world-class wineries that mix the elegant with the down home, Sonoma is ground zero for great wine and the lifestyle that goes with it.

All that makes Sonoma a premier destination, sought after for its mellow pace, natural beauty, and proximity to San Francisco, just 45 miles south. Sonoma offers plenty of things to do, including jazz festivals, parades, cooking classes, the Sonoma International Film Festival, and exhibitions and openings at Sonoma Valley Museum of Art.

Spacious homes in the vineyards and rolling hills around Sonoma command spectacular views. Today, the multimillion-dollar estates of Sonoma range from Tuscan-style villas to more adventurous concrete and glass architectural statements.
