Overview

Sonoma Estate Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 4.25 Bathrooms, Convertible bed(s), Sleeps 8 +

Bella Vista is a custom-built luxury estate property with 5400 sf on 3.5 acres overlooking a panoramic view of the Sonoma Valley and beyond. The many windows and French doors bathe its two-story interior in constant light. With its extensive outdoor entertainment area, exudes casual sophistication and surrounds you with wine country comfort and elegance inside and out. In this coveted locale, Bella Vista was built with thoughtfulness and meticulous care for its surroundings.

This spacious two-story residence is tucked away in a private gated estate community at an elevation of 1000 feet. While secluded, it has the distinct advantage of being located about ten minutes away from downtown Sonoma, top-notch dining, shopping, art galleries, wineries and wine tasting. Yet the winding country road that reaches up to it, passing by woods, vineyards and chaparral-clad hillsides, makes it seem more remote than it really is.

Exterior: This beautiful estate with its lavish landscaping and fantastic vistas offers an unending array of experiences. It starts with the winding driveway leading to the circular entry way with amble parking. The property's landscaping is archetypically diverse with oak, bay, olive, palm trees, oleander and other flowering bushes, fruit trees, flowerbeds and grape vines growing profusely around the home and on the terraces that bracket them. The view is one of Wine Country's grandest, sweeping miles across eastern Sonoma Valley to San Pablo Bay.

The outdoor upper patio with its custom Brazilian hardwood deck includes, a rock faced, granite topped, built in kitchen with a large Viking barbecue, gas stove top, refrigerator, sink, and built-in icebox with speed rail. A large oak tree with an outdoor heater shelters the kitchen, granite dining table and bar area for extra comfort. Enjoying the never-ending vistas that makes outdoor dining a true delight.

Exterior.: Just below theupper patio and next to the hot tub you will find a large stone wood-burning fireplace with ample seating. A near-by hot tub overflows into the waterfall that gently flows to the custom built swimming pool. Both are solar heated in the summer and average temperature of 80-85 degrees. A outside shower & separate sun deck adds to your sunning comfort.

You'll enjoy Bella Vista's quietly gliding hawks that are common visitors here, as well as small woodland creatures. At night, when Sonoma Town's gem-like lights seem to dance atop the evening breeze, this makes for a marvelous dinner and party spot.

The views are simply breathtaking! Whether outdoor recreation, soothing relaxation in the sun, pool or spa, or the elegance of a special celebration, Bella Vista is a place to create lifetime memories.

Interior

Bella Vista is the ideal setting for celebrations or getaways of all kinds. The home has an immediate air of welcome, with a size and scale that invites hospit

Interior: It's all about comfort, with its 4 large bedrooms, 4 full baths, 3 fireplaces, game room, extra large great room and gourmet kitchen ~ you won''t want to leave.

A circular driveway leads up to the deep, tiled porch with its stone work, arches and carved wooden door. Inside, the wide entry opens onto the expansive formal living and dining room, which can accommodate cocktail parties or more formal gatherings. The room features a two-sided gleaming marble fireplace, hardwood floors, floor to ceiling arched windows with French doorways framing beautiful scenes of the flowering landscape and hillside. This brings in the natural golden light that warms the rooms.

The extra large great room, gourmet kitchen, dining area nook and game room offer a relaxing glimpse of the tranquil scenery. The great room includes a 73” HD built in flat-screen TV, surround sound system throughout the interior and exterior, full bar with seating, wireless Internet and wood burning fireplace...

About Steve Skolnik

In the heart of beautiful Sonoma wine country, I purchased the land and custom built my dream home for myself and family. My children are now grown, on their own and I find myself wanting to share this beautiful home and valley with others. It is a romantic, charming, elegant, luxury private estate for all to enjoy.

Thank you for choosing Bella Vista and I know you will have a wonderful stay,

Steve

Unbeatable

  • 5 of 5
This property is absolutely beautiful. It's about 30-45 minutes from just about everywhere we wanted to go, but the group agreed we wouldn't trade that house/view/entertainment area for less travel time. I would highly recommend this for a group of couples (although I'd call dibs on the Master bedroom as it is 5 times as large as any other room and just a cool room in general).

Steve was very helpful and easy to deal with. Both owner and home couldn't have been more accommodating! Hope to return next year

Easy and fun

  • 5 of 5
Renting this place was a dream. The owner made everything easy and the house was beautiful. Tremendous outdoor dining and great for a wine touring group. Perfect location for Sonoma and reasonably close to Napa. If you looking to chill in wine country, this is the place to be.

Amazing property

  • 5 of 5
We had a group of 4 couples (30s-40s) stay at Bella Vista for a long weekend. The property and Steve's hospitality far surpassed our expectations. We had barely been there a day and were already discussing a return trip. The house had everything we could have wanted an more. The views were breathtaking and the photos really don't do it justice. Highly recommend!

Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5
We chose Bella Vista for a family gathering in October and it was delightful. The owner was so helpful and cooperative and the home was beyond clean and instructions for all of the equipment, lighting, pool, spa, etc. were described in detail and easy to follow. The views from the back deck and outdoor seating areas were breathtaking and we all got up early just to see the sunrise over the Sonoma hills. The house sits at the top of the hill in this gated community and morning walks are a challenge. We found lots of local wineries to visit and recommend Cline Vineyards and their lovely property. We are all foodies and found the Sonoma Market by far the best. We came from all over the US and no one was disappointed in this choice. I highly recommend the comfort and warmth of this home.

Lovely home, beautiful spot

  • 5 of 5
When you enter Bella Vista, it is immediately apparent that the owner takes pride in his home. Immaculate describes it better than "clean and well-maintained". The listing description was accurate, but the actual experience exceeded our expectations. The owner was a very good communicator. The notebook he provides to guests with instructions and photos as well as suggestions and recommendations, was very helpful and clear. The house is about a 12 minute drive from the square in Sonoma, and it is worth it as you rise above the valley and have the benefit of the "bella vista". The views are indeed spectacular. One suggestion is that guests be able to use Pay per View on the television (and pay the charges). Our family would have enjoyed watching a few movies! We enjoyed several of the recommended restaurants, and had an excellent wine tasting experience with Sarah from Sommelier on Wheels. Little known places that were great! We highly recommend Bella Vista.

Stunning Views, Superb Comfort - Ultimate Relaxation

  • 5 of 5
We took a family vacation to Sonoma this year and stayed at Bella Vista for a week - what a treat. Located in the foothills just west of downtown, the views and surroundings made you feel 'far away from it all', but in actuality you're just a short 10-15 drive from wine tasting, restaurants, and anything else you may need. Awesome kitchen (well stocked and supplied), fabulous great room, and lush grounds - a very luxurious property that pampers you at every turn. Owner easy to work with and responsive. Highly recommended...
