Secluded Luxury Custom Built 3,000 sq. ft.Paradise: Built in 1994-97, this custom built 3 bedroom/3 full bath home sits atop a bluff affording magnificent 360 views, from north to south Valley of the Moon, to the terraced landscaped gardens and eastern hills. No visible neighbors and lush gardens create true intimacy and privacy. Radiant heat/cooling lies below slate floors throughout, black Brazilian granite counters, extensive custom iron and wood work, ceiling fans. Each of three pavilions is separate and private. 8 sets of French doors open onto wrap-around decks. The architectural designs were specific to natural light and openness, based on Polynesian structures for outdoor living-big decks and generous overhangs. The Great Room-massive fireplace, loft and Steinway Baby Grand. Home is WiFi, and wired for complete or room-specific stereo (inc. pool area), the Master Pavilion has a new 42' LCD TV with Direct TV. The gourmet state-of-the-art kitchen has two large double sinks, center butcher block. Guest Pav. has complete kitchen. We have just added two new Queen beds to both the Guest Room off the great room and the Cottage unit.
Outside the home: One of the 2 owner-builders, a landscape contractor devoted a lot of energy and inspiration to the extensive gardens, the pool area and the entire property. On a hill in the middle of 3 acres, no visible neighbors and lush growth all around creates an extremely private paradise. The terraced gardens are on computer drip systems, including 21 rose bushes, 4 fruit trees (apple, pear, apricot and plum-all incredible for the picking) and two vegetable gardens (1, behind the hot tub). There is also an enclosed dog area. The lap pool (50'X8'X3'-4 1/2' in depth) has a unique feature-'the Wave'; a plastered series of three undulations designed for stretching the back, water covering the ears, but not the face-perfect for zoning out. Magical manzanita and madrone trees intermix with various oaks and wild plum. Each of the massive decks affords different views. The winter rains create a cascading waterfall and pond below the Master Pavilion terrace. Loose yourself in nature and luxury.
The Neighborhood: Glen Ellen is in the heart of the Valley of the Moon, called so for the magnificence of it's moon glow, the hills keeping out the surrounding communities' lights. There are 28 wineries in the near vicinity, some close and safe enough for bike trips. The Valley has numerous festivals devoted to wine, food and the good life. Glen Ellen is just off highway 12 connecting Sonoma with Santa Rosa, both great for shopping/dining/movies, etc.A rich history is provided by Jack London (author of 'Call of the Wild'), including museums, a state park and various saloons and eateries that bear his name. For the bike enthusiasts, there are numerous trails and roads. For the hard-core, a trip over Trinity Road into Napa! The Sonoma Coast is 45 mins. due west. The surrounding Glen Ellen area is a hiker's paradise (Sugarloaf Mtn. State Park, Jack London State Park, etc.) Napa, Healdsberg, the Anderson Valley, the S.F. Bay are close by.
