Enjoy Wine Country in this family-friendly farmhouse, featuring pool, hot-tub with private outdoor shower, majestic redwoods and indoor-outdoor lifestyle.
We are located 45 minutes north of the Golden Gate Bridge, and less than one mile from historic Sonoma Plaza, with it's fine dining, and historic Mission. Over 30 wineries are no farther than 15 minutes away, many within easy biking distance.
Private grounds are perfect for a family desiring to spend some together-time in a cozy, farmhouse setting. Landscaping includes 37 rose bushes, sauvage prairie-style plantings, lawns, crushed granite walkways, trellised grape vines, fountain, and an old-school tree swing from one of old walnut trees. The magical setting is perfect for BBQ's and outdoors eating, with a table for 6 on the lawn under one of the old Walnut trees from the original grove. There are five towering redwoods on the property, the largest of which we have named 'Big Beauty'.
The original house was built in 1906 and is one of the Heritage farmhouses of Old Sonoma. The home has original redwood frame construction, and honey-colored doug-fir floors. The property is also graced with a 3-story Water Tower separate from the main house. While the original Water Tower on the property is not accessible to guests, it is a reminder of the historical nature of the property, as the former estate home of a large Walnut grove.
The interior features 2 bedrooms and bath downstairs, and an upstairs bedroom and bath. Additionally, there is a large Sunroom / playroom, where our son spends endless hours.
The gated off Pool is solar heated, and the entire property is fenced in, so your kids can run around safely. The Pool area has a small raised deck under a shaded canopy.
Heather and Andre moved to Sonoma in 2008, from San Francisco, and after many long months of looking, bought this property after we were immediately captivated by its magical feel. We have a 4 year old son, who loves running around the yard, tinkering in the raised-bed gardens, and jumping into the pool.
The wonderful setting of an older, rustic farmhouse, in a magical garden-like setting, with towering redwoods, and calm, cooling pool, sold us on this property.
Whenever we come home from a trip, we always remark how good it feels to be 'coming home'.
Andre loves to jump into the pool after going for a long bike workout on the weekends, and we love how easy it is to entertain guests, especially those with kids, splitting time between running around the house, BBQ'ing, jumping in the pool, or sharing dinner and wine on the main lawn under the shade of the Walnut.
