The poetic beauty of the Estate at Dooley Creek draws inspiration from the architecture and lifestyle characteristic of Italy’s Umbria and Tuscany regions…pastoral hills dotted with olive orchards, pristine vineyard rows, breathtaking vistas, romantic allure and a culture that celebrates family and life! Warm mornings spent in the garden gathering vegetables with farm to table freshness…. al fresco dining under the broad summer sky…a morning hike through the vineyards and an afternoon swim in the pool or pond. The beauty is remarkable and the lifestyle seductive.
The turn-key estate has architecture authentic to the majestic style of the Italian country home and features a compound designed with separate spaces for private and common area gathering. Situated atop an oak-studded knoll, four individual bedroom suites each with views, private patios and outdoor showers cluster around a Mediterranean loggia style courtyard and impressive Great Room, where family and friends gather for dinner, conversation and entertainment. The authentic rammed earth construction is perfect for the microclimate with insulation that helps maintain a more consistent temperature year-round.
Situated on 90± acres over two parcels, the estate includes a four-bedroom residential compound, infinity pool, 360° views, 20± acre organic cabernet vineyard, pond, gated entrance with an impressive half-mile private driveway; and a 2BR caretaker residence and barn with separate road access.
Located 96 miles north of the Golden Gate bridge, just east of Hwy 101 in Hopland, this very private yet easily accessible estate sits at the gateway to the beauty of Northern California, within close proximity to the wine country appellations surrounding Healdsburg and West Mendocino county.

It’s a great place for sightseeing, wine tasting, bicycling, hiking…and an even better place to relax and entertain family and friends.
