You Just Found Your Haven on the Hill
When folks come to visit, they never want to leave. This is why we created The Birdhouse. Now, it can be yours to enjoy.
Located one hour north of San Francisco, smack-dab in the middle of the world famous Sonoma County wine country. We are 20 minutes from the beautiful Pacific coast or the magnificent redwoods at Armstrong Woods. The Sebastopol area is bursting with world class wineries, restaurants, art, music, and so much more.
The Birdhouse at FancyNest Farm is perched among the pine trees with sweeping western views of the vineyards. This light-filled, one bedroom home is perfect for your next relaxing vacation in the wine country.
Describe the 750 sf.ft., two-storied, one bedroom house, please...
The main living area is open and spacious with 17' ceilings and ample seating. We want you to feel at home with thoughtful design touches that go beyond the normal vacation rental. Of course we have WiFi and TV, but there is also a nook specially designed for reading. The living room is connected to the dining and kitchen area, making it easy to keep the conversation going. The sofa pulls out to a 4 1/2 inch queen memory foam mattress....no hateful bar across the back. The reading nook even has a single pull out sofa. The true highlight of the room is the bank of western facing windows...and the ever-changing view.
What about the kitchen...
We have stocked the cabinets as if we were staying there; all that you need to cook an excellent meal as if you were home. Your basic condiments and spices are on hand because we would want that if we were on vacation. We included a microwave, toaster oven, coffee maker and grinder, espresso machine, crock pot and a dishwasher. The glass dining table has four mid-century chairs that mom bought back in '64 plus that great view. The sliding door off the kitchen opens to the multi-tiered deck which has an outdoor table, chairs and umbrella. The charcoal grill is at the ready in case you bring back oysters from Tomales. Or veggies from the many farmer's markets.
Without exception, everyone who walks into the bedroom is enveloped by serenity and peacefulness. Great attention was paid to create a space where your troubles can melt away. We invested in a top of the line memory foam mattress, (waterproof and bedbug proof encasements for your ease of mind) excellent sheets, high quality feather pillows and lovely down duvet and sea foam green blanket. We installed our incredible collection of oil paintings depicting images of San Francisco from the 50's, 80's and 90's. This original work was made by the Owners, Nancy Irish and her mother, Pat Irish Amez, as well as Pat's sister, Diana Creber. Sit on the comfy chair with reading light or outside on the balcony overlooking the pool. A beautiful wooden dresser has a mirror and lighting. The large closet houses an iron and board for your convenience.
Talk about the pool and hot tub?
A path on the western side of the building leads you to the pool and hot tub, which is shared with the property owners. The pool is passive heated during the spring, summer and early fall months. The hot tub sits on a lovely perch where you will enjoy the amazing views. This is a place where you can further unwind and relax.
What else is there?
There is ample parking for two cars.
The property is 2 1/2 acres. Casual gardens spaces are interspersed with Mother Nature herself. We have many apple trees and a small vegetable garden. The greenhouse is a work in progress. The lasting impression of this place is the vast sky. From many locations you have a 180 degree view of unobstructed openness. The BIRDHOUSE is named and lovingly decorated to honor the many varieties of birds who call FancyNest Farm home. Look up and you might see a red shouldered hawk drawing circles in the sky. Listen carefully to hear the hummingbird zipping about in the bottle brush trees. We provided a bird feeder and bath so you can have an upfront experience with the birds. On a clear night be prepared for a spectacular show of stars. We have a fire pit to keep you warm while you take in the hushed beauty.
