Glen Ellen Estate Rental Photos and Description

Estate, 5 Bedrooms + Loft, 5.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12)


WEDDING PARTIES: We do not have the ability to host weddings on the premises. There are many nearby venues that can, and we are happy to be your home base.

This spectacular estate on 33 acres is an amazing place for celebrating family events. The 4500 square foot home, extensively remodeled in the summer of 2010, features 5 bedrooms and 5 1/2 baths comfortably sleeping 12. The outdoor facilities include a travertine pool deck, outdoor kitchen equipped with high end pellet BBQ, Bocce Ball courtyard and Wine Cave, tennis court, garden areas, terraced olive groves, 2 acre lake with sand beach, 6 acre vineyard and 12 acres of woods. A thrilling 100' water slide leads from the pool level to the water-trampoline in the lake.

Concierge service for the property is provided by Concierge of the Valley. Services include planning of wine tours, arranging chefs and child care, travel planning and more. One hour of complimentary service is included.

From the property there is ready access to dozens of local wineries, local restaurants and shopping from Costco to the boutiques around the Sonoma Square.

Outdoor activities available on the property keep kids and adults busy. The 5000 square foot travertine pool deck includes a 24x60 salt water pool and a massive custom hot tub. A large gas fire-pit is a great place to spend the early evening hours. The outdoor kitchen and dining area provide cooking facilities and dining space for 16-40+ people. The lower courtyard contains a Bocce Ball court and provides access to the Wine Cave. The asphalt tennis court is complete with a club-quality ball machine, and also has 2 high-quality basketball backboards. The 2 acre lake offers a sand beach, with paddleboards, a kayak and a rowboat. A screened-in gazebo on a small peninsula is a great place to escape on warm nights.

The lower level of the house is designed for entertaining with an elegant, open floor plan. The kitchen, dining room, living room and game nook all provide stunning views, highlighted by an enormous picture window looking out over the pool deck, lake and vineyard. Original knotty pine flooring planks run throughout the house, accented by Brazilian Cherry in the higher traffic areas.

A gourmet kitchen features beautiful granite countertops, including a massive 6'x8' island seating four and a 10' buffet/bar counter seating three more. A commercial Wolf stove, with griddle, and a separate Miele oven provide restaurant-grade cooking capability. Beautiful cherry cabinetry conceals the other high-end built-in appliances.

A heavy wood table in the dining room can seat 6-14 comfortably for casual dining or an elegant repast. The adjoining Living Room enjoys sweeping pool, lake and vineyard views through a dramatic picture window. When the sun goes down, a 55' HDTV above the fireplace offers satellite TV, DVD and Internet services. The game nook seats 4-6 around an elegant purpose-built game table.

The Game Room offers ping-pong, foosball and air hockey, and can be converted to a 'movie room' by pulling down the 10' screen and turning on the projector. The connected Exercise Room opens onto the Pool Deck and offers free weights and a health-club style universal machine. A full bath serves the exercise room and pool deck. The Billiard Room hosts a drop-pocket 8' table and is decorated with prints depicting historical homes and the development of Sonoma County. A 46' HDTV and fireplace make this a great hangout.

The Downstairs Master Bedroom features a luxurious king bed, private balcony and fireplace. The Master Bath is elegantly finished in a soft travertine.

A laundry room, pantry and guest bath complete the downstairs.

Upstairs sleeping accommodations include four bedrooms and a loft. The Upstairs Master Bedroom offers a queen bed and an oversized box-bay window delivering fantastic morning light and peaceful vineyard views, along with a 46' HDTV and DVD player. The Master Bath offers a claw-foot tub, shower and dual sinks. The Upstairs Guest Bedroom also has a queen bed and has a full bath with shower and single sink. The 'Office' features a great 'Murphy Bed' with a REAL queen mattress. This room can double as a work area by folding the murphy bed up. A loft area sits at the top of the stairs and is a great little reading spot or escape, above the Living Room. The last room upstairs is the 'Kids Room', a gigantic room with a queen and 2 twin beds, half a dozen cushy bean-bags, a 46' HDTV, DVD Player and Wii. Guess who will end up there?

About Spero Koulouras

The property is co-owned by 2 families. It was purchased to give our kids a great escape from city life. We often bring the extended families together for holidays or just for fun.

Spero Koulouras purchased this estate in 2004

Why Spero Koulouras chose Glen Ellen

Glen Ellen is in the heart of Sonoma Wine Country. Local attractions include the Jack London State Park (worth a visit) and Benziger Winery, a family-owned, biodynamic vineyard and winery with the best tour in the valley. Surrounded by large, 40+ acre parcels, the setting is quiet and private.

Great Family Reunion Spot

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a week at Spero's home in the Sonoma hills and it was just great. We had our three children's families gather for a once a year get together and wanted a special place for the long distances travelled to get here-one daughter came from London. The place was better than advertised and the pictures do not do the quality of the facilities proper justice. The Kitchen and Great room were a perfect gathering spot for meals prep. The bedrooms were large, well furnished and each having a bathroom was an added treat. The poolside patio was large and roomy and well equipped with high quality furniture-the pool was good size and sitting in a spectacular view. We had two evening group parties by the pool-one catered and one done ourselves-and surroundings and sunset were perfect. Our kids just loved the waterside and the hot tub, and the adults loved the bocci ball and tennis court. The lake was a big hit with all the water toys imaginable. All in all, this facility was very well equipped. It even came with deer and turkeys in the morning down in the lower field.

We had a few questions on how things operated, not wanting to do any damage, and Spero was immediately responsive to any emails or phone calls-we met him on the way out and thanked him. A great spot to rent for a week and is suitable for adults and kids. It was nice having a kid's' room where they could all congregate if they wanted to.

We just loved it, and it was more than we expected. Thanks for the stay!

The listing description was accurate, the pictures great, the place was clean as a whistle when we arrived, and I recommend it to anyone that needs privacy, a wonderful setting and roomy accommodations for a decent sized group. It also really worked well for our wine visits in Sonoma and Glen Ellen. Access is easy to town.

Amazing property!

  • 5 of 5

I hosted my wife's family here and our high expectations were exceeded in every way. We had 5 kids with us and we all felt like kids again after partaking in all of the house activities. The property has activities to fill your days like stand up paddle boarding, THE WATERSLIDE, bocci, tennis, trampoline, hot tub, ping pong etc..the kitchen/great room is superb for family dinners and hanging out. We told stories, roasted smores and hung out under the stars at the firepit near the pool. Easy access to Glen Ellen for wine tasting and eating good, trails at Jack London and Mt Biking at Annadel. We'll be back, thanks for the memories!

Great For Meditation Group!

  • 5 of 5

This is a jewel of a retreat! Very private, yet close to everything you need. The large home has been beautifully refurbished with all of the modern amenities and the property offers a wide range of activities to suit all ages. We will be returning with our meditation group for many years to come.

4 San Francisco Families

  • 5 of 5

An unbelievable experience! We were a group of four families looking for a place to unwind and relax but also with fun family activities and boy did this house/resort exceed our expectations. The pictures on VRBO do not do the grounds or house justice. It is even more breath taking. Actually at the end of our stay I left still feeling like there was so much to do at the property that I did not have time to do it all and we did not even leave the property during our vacation. The 100ft water slide into the lake with a water trampoline was a huge hit but so were the canoes and tennis courts (with ball machine) and the beautiful pool/hot tub. We ended each evening making smores at the outside firepit. The owner was very helpful (even helped us locate a chef for a special meal) and responsive. We had so much fun that we booked another vacation here this year and I can't wait to go back .

Special Playland in a Scenic, Serene Setting

  • 5 of 5

Photos tell a story…but you must experience the specialness of this property to truly appreciate it. We just returned from a long family birthday weekend in Glen Ellen where we felt like we could have been in a faraway place like Italy, with the quiet bucolic wine country setting. While there are a myriad of water and sports activities to engage in and enjoy, the real memories result from the coming together of extended family to play together away from the craziness of our busy, techno daily lives. We added our own evening “dance off” around the fire pit and a competitive “chipping” contest on the lush lawn to round off all of the other amenities. The avid bikers in our family enjoyed the rolling hills of the area and excellent lunch treats were discovered at Olive and Vine and the Glen Ellen Village Market. The owners were wonderful to work with, the house was extremely well equipped and I have now spoiled my family for all future vacation locales….they will expect another Wine Country playland like Camp Enterprise!
