About Barbara Lehman

Joe and Barbara love to cook, entertain and travel! You'll find Joe on the property daily, maintaining his orchards and planting his vegetable garden. Barbara loves hiking with her dogs in the surrounding hills, or planning her next dinner party! They are world travelers and love to pick up treasures wherever they go!

Barbara Lehman purchased this house in 2009

Why Barbara Lehman chose Novato

After years of searching, Joe and Barbara discovered this three acre property in 2001, and knew this was the ideal spot to build their dream house. A few years later the guest house was added where the original 1925 farmhouse sat along the creek side to complete the estate. This historic property offers the best of all worlds...it's easy location offers quick freeway access to surrounding areas, yet it is completely private. A Spanish country retreat right downtown!

What makes this house unique

The property sits on a sloping hillside offering views of the headland mountains, and yet is completely surrounded by trees for privacy. The guest house is open to nature, so the deer, turkeys, and even an occasional fox can be seen from the windows.

This home is beautiful and well appointed. The setting is park like, private and natural. Adjoined by a nice little brook on the south side of the property and vineyard to the west. Fabulous kitchen, master bedroom and bathroom upstairs. Relaxing and comfortable, well positioned for short ventures to the City, or the wine regions in Napa or Sonoma. We enjoyed our time at the Casa de Leon. The owners were very helpful and accommodating.

Awesome Everything!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this wonderful house in Novato as our son was coaching in nearby San Rafeal. It was a beautiful, well equipped house set on a creek. The setting was as if you were in the hills, but still close enough to walk to town. It had everything we needed and more! Enjoyed relaxing and visiting right at the house. We cooked meals, walked the property, and enjoyed the beautiful amenities of the property. We went to Sasalito for brunch one day, 20 min. south, right by the Golden Gate Bridge. We went to local breweries in Petaluma, 20 min. north. There are many wineries 20 min east. The location is great and the house is better than great! We hit the jackpot with this rental and we will be back.

We loved it

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this house. We took our meals – prepared in the more-than-well-equipped kitchen – at the dining-room table, with a view into the garden, relaxed on the porch, watching the squirrels, sometimes turkeys and even deers, enjoyed the walk-in shower and the huge bathtub and the cozy sofa in the evenings before retiring to one of the beautiful bedrooms. We had everything we needed and wanted; the location is very quiet, but nevertheless also near to downtown Novato – perfect.

Thanks to Barbara for giving us the opportunity for such a relaxing time! We will definitely be back.

Amazing property

  • 5 of 5

We truly found the rental home to be everything you would ever need plus more. We stayed at the home with another couple and we traveled to Napa/Sonoma for wine tasting. The home was well supplied and even had some extra's that we hadn't planned on. The property was easy to find and very centrally located in between Napa & Sonoma. Also close to Sausalito and the airport. Novato had wonderful restaurants, Boca Grill and Rustic Bakery and Safeway for groceries. We will keep this property on our return list for sure, it was superb.

Can't Be Beat!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a home that was situated between the Napa/Sonoma wine country and San Francisco, as we had friends visiting the USA from France for four days. The location of this home was perfect! Novato itself is a cute town with excellent restaurants and shopping, but also very convenient as a base for exploring the region.

Joe and Barbara built this house as a guest house, separate from their own dwelling. They did a terrific job! The construction is high-end, with soaring ceilings, hardwood and tile, curved windows and doors, high-end appliances and many other little touches that make the house special and inviting.

Even though the house is fairly close to downtown Novato (including Whole Foods, Safeway and other grocery stores), it is set on a very private, rural-like three acres. It backs up to the owner's vineyard & gardens and a creek. We were treated to the sight of a flock of wild turkeys passing though the yard, as well as deer grazing nearby!

The house was very clean, everything is newer and the accommodations are first-rate. You cannot go wrong staying at this house! Joe and Barbara are friendly and gracious hosts and they went out of their way to make us feel welcome. They even left us a cheese and fruit platter, plus some of their own self-produced, delicious wine! As we are vacation renter owners ourselves (VRBO 501329) we know what to look for in a vacation rental. Our compliments to Joe and Barbara!
