PRIVATE RESORT HIDEAWAY SHARES THE CHATEAU ST JEAN VINEYARD ACCESS

Kenwood Estate Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Our serene, lush all useable and playful 5-acre estate in Kenwood, California, nestled inside the vineyards of the posh Chateau St. Jean Winery is called 'Raisinwood,' derived from our last names in homage to the family friendliness of our idyllic country home.

The rejuvenating calm of the fresh, invigorating countryside will engulf and transport you away from the bustle of everyday life from the moment you wind in on the rustic driveway alongside a lavender farm under towering oak trees,

A quaint wooden bridge guides you to our welcoming, sunny home surrounded by a gorgeously landscaped yard that sprawls in every direction. Tall trees and lush foliage seclude the property and hint toward the surrounding expanse of nature that include several State Parks, Nature Preserves and Bald Mountain, which towers in full view.

The unique architecture of Raisinwood highlights the connection to the outdoors with stately French doors that open directly onto the lawn and decks from bedrooms and the main living areas. Natural light pours into each room energizing the space.

Four bedrooms and three bathrooms comfortably accommodate ten guests. A luxurious Master Suite and secondary master bedroom allow for peaceful refuge. Two additional bedrooms with single and bunk bed accommodations are perfect for kids or single guests.

The fully equipped kitchen is a culinary lover’s dream with a state of the art BBQ and dining area on a deck that winds around the back of the house.

Recline in one of the several outdoor seating areas with a bottle of wine in hand from the adjacent famed winery, and you are living the California countryside dream. The sleek pool and lounging area along with the fully –equipped outdoor sports courts offer plenty of options for family fun. Enjoy a night under the stars under the large airy cabana or next to our outdoor fire cauldron.

Extracurricular activities include scenic walks, hikes, and biking trails. Sonoma County is famous for its wineries, spas and resorts. Historic Sonoma center boasts 5 star restaurants, spas and shopping. At the end of an active day, you can call in a masseuse or have dinner catered in the comfort of your newly nested home.

We keep Raisinwood very clean to support our healthy lifestyle and environment. We respectfully ask you to maintain a non –smoking atmosphere and not to hold parties.

We are confident that Raisinwood will host the ideal Kenwood and Sonoma experience, with opportunities for every age group in the family.

I'm a partner at Atlas Capital a firm in San Francisco where I specialize in transparent and separately managed accounts driven by the Fama-French academic process . I've recently bought a farm near downtown Sonoma, www.sonomabroadwayfarms.com, to cultivate my passion for sustainable agriculture and community based food sources. I'm married to a lovely pediatrician with whom I share 5 vivacious kids. I love to swim, hike, bike, play basketball and garden. We choose to rent out Raisinwood because our growing kids want to be home with their friends and extra-curricular activities to which they’re committed. We all are already looking forward to our Raisinwood getaway in late August or the fall.

Preston Raisin purchased this estate in 2003

We initially bought Raisinwood in the desirable Kenwood countryside to enjoy as a respite from the city with our small children, friends and family. This is the first time we have listed our property to rent. We favor Kenwood’s convenient proximity to Sonoma Center and distance from the bustle of Napa in addition to the easy access to highway 12, connecting us to the entire region.

It’s a toss up between lounging in the hammock, swimming, playing sports, cooking, and gardening, hiking, biking or visiting the numerous surrounding attractions. The tranquility yet opportunity on our property waxes and wanes as the moon and your moods. I look forward to hearing what part you liked best.

Raisinwood

Staying at this house was heaven on earth. We are from the Bay Area, and my daughter was getting married at Kunde Vineyards in Sonoma Valley a hop, skip and a jump from Raisinwood. The property was a perfect location, perfect floor plan for family and a few friends to have a barbecue and relax which was potentially quite a stressful time. Preston is a fantastic "landlord." Thanks, Preston for making my extended weekend such a success. Highly recommend!

Girl weekend was a success! A group of us girls spent the weekend at this fabulous house and had a wonderful time! The house is very comfortable, clean and accommodating. We cooked several meals at the house and the kitchen was well equipped. The grounds are beautiful and extremely well kept. The house is located close to wineries and restaurants, which we visited during our stay! All and all, we loved the house and cant wait to stay there again. Thanks Preston, your the BEST!

We had an absolutely fantastic time at this wonderful home. The weather was perfect and it was like entering an outdoor activity playland when we discovered all the fun toys and things to do in the back yard.
We truly loved relaxing and enjoying such a beautiful outdoor space with family and friends- we couldn't have asked for a better weekend.
