Bathed in natural light and with views that span nearly a hundred miles, Chill Hill is a secluded hilltop getaway that's perfect for a memorable, relaxing wine country holiday. The house features lush, natural views from every window (even the bathrooms) and is located within minutes of world-class wineries, the coast, and the quaint towns of Healdsburg, Sonoma, Glen Ellen, and Kenwood. It's a perfect location -- close to everything, but a million miles away.
The house is set-up for true outdoor living. Like a mini-resort, it features:
- 30' swimming pool fed by crystal clear, spring
- Outdoor dining pavilion with giant views of the Russian River Valley
- Yoga deck
- Zen garden
- Herb garden
- Several outdoor seating areas
- Weber BBQ
The house has three bedrooms. On the first floor is a large master with en suite bath and natural stone, double walk-in shower. Two more bedrooms and another full bathroom share the secluded second floor with an adjoining sunroom. The main floor features a living room and dining area with seating for six. There is also a 6' professional grand piano and giant picture windows facing the Russian River Valley, Dry Creek Valleys and the coastal hills. A large chef's kitchen with Viking appliances, commercial gas range, La Pavoni espresso machine, and a beautiful 19th century antique work table with stool seating for casual meals will please all cooking and baking enthusiasts. The kitchen opens to a warm seating area with wood-burning fireplace, flat screen TV, and a giant picture window with expansive valley views to the coast and gorgeous sunsets.
Wood plank floors span the first floor with beautiful Persian carpets, recessed halogen lighting (all on dimmers), and Asian antiques. The house is perfectly decorated with restraint and elegance.
A short walk down the hill will take you to the area's best bakery, coffee shop, florist, a boutique grocery store, and a popular family restaurant -- all locally owned. The renowned Santa Rosa Certified Farmer's Market is a few miles away on Wednesday and Saturday mornings. Downtown is just a few minute drive where you'll find Michelin-awarded restaurants, cafes, shopping, movies, live music, brew-pubs, attractions, and more. And of course, there are hundreds of world-class wineries to be explored in every direction. We've left an extensive list of our favorite local spots for guests.
Please note that parties, events, weddings, annulments, and related celebrations at the home are strictly prohibited. It's really quiet here and only the stars and lights below shine brightly at night.
We hope that you'll find Chill Hill a peaceful and restful escape.
We love to travel, cook, entertain, and play. Food, wine and music are some of our passions and we've found all of them here in gorgeous Northern California. This has been an inspiring place for us to be creative, to write, play music, and welcome friends.
Chill Hill provides the perfect escape to relax, entertain, cook, or just float in the pool after a day visiting the area's world class vineyards. The house instantly feels like a vacation resort and it's been tastefully decorated with Asian and European antiques. We recently installed a chef's kitchen using high-end appliances, commercial gas stove, and an 11' work table from 19th century France. The secluded grounds are filled with fruit trees and you're welcome to help yourself to whatever happens to be in season. Beautiful sunsets are guaranteed and our local deer often wander up to the front windows to get a look inside. Even though the house is just minutes from town, you'll feel like you're way out in the country...and on top of the world.
We took the advice of an old-timer who shared some wisdom years ago. He said if you're going to buy a place in the SF Bay Area, it should have three things:
1) a view 2) lots of sunshine 3) a pool.
Tucked into the verdant Sonoma County foothills, Chill Hill is just a few minutes to the downtown: shops, restaurants, cafes, brew-pubs, local gourmet treats & attractions. It's only 15-20 minutes to Healdsburg, Sonoma Square, Kenwood, Glen Ellen, Petaluma, and about 25 minutes to the legendary beaches and coves of the Pacific Coast.
Located about 45 minutes north of San Francisco, you'll find over 200 wineries within a 20 minute drive. Napa Valley is to the east and world-class cycling roads (and trails) connect the entire area.
While the home and grounds are private, quiet, and perched on a secluded ridge-top with amazing vistas, you can descend the hill in minutes to be in the heart of the action if you choose.
