This contemporary farmhouse is the epitome of wine country indoor/outdoor living. The high ceilings, multitude of large windows and French doors, and open floor plan give the approx. 4,300 sf thoughtfully-designed home a light, bright and informal yet elegant feeling.
The residence is perfectly situated for outdoor entertaining and play, being entirely surrounded by patios and decks, a trellised gazebo, large double-grill area, and poolside terrace, with an adjacent pool and large spa, leading to a grand expanse of game-friendly lawn. Views of the Sonoma Valley, Mayacamas Mountains and Sonoma Mountain are expansive, from both inside and outside. The remainder of the 12 acres of grounds are a naturalist's delight, including prodigious landscaping and a wide variety of majestic heritage oaks, olives and native trees (and a treehouse), allowing for further play, planting and creative opportunities.
Inside, the open plan family room and kitchen features granite countertop seating and a butcher block island, with a high wood-beamed ceiling and five sets of French doors accessing the outdoor entertainment areas. The sizable but cozy living and dining space also features high-beamed ceilings and multiple French doors oriented toward outside views, and includes a large fireplace. Also on the main floor are a guest suite, a large library with floor-to-ceiling bookshelves, a powder room, a pantry area with garden sink, and a convenient 'pool bathroom'.
Upstairs, the master suite includes a private balcony, soaking tub, fireplace and beamed ceilings. An indoor 'patio' leads to an additional en-suite bedroom, a fitness room, laundry area and 'children's wing'. The large 'children's wing' includes built-in three-tiered bunk beds, study and play space and an (optional) balcony view to the family room below.
The separate multi-purpose playhouse/studio/'barn' of approx. 1,500 sf has an open ground floor, together with a mezzanine studio and bath.
