FAMILIES AND FRIENDS: Treat yourself to this spacious retreat in the heart of Sonoma Valley, set amidst vineyards, farms, and pastoral mountain views. You'll enjoy the beautiful heated natural rock pool (heated during season) and the spa, outdoor fire pit, landscaped gardens, and bocce court. Lots of room to congregate or spread out. Come to relax.
Kenwood is located in the heart of the Sonoma Valley surrounded by world class wineries. Fantastic restaurants, from café to five-star, are in Kenwood and the neighboring village of Glen Ellen. Travel just ten miles to historic Sonoma Square or take a fifteen mile backroad drive to the heart of Napa Valley.
For Mountain Bikers you will find some of the best single-track biking in California one-half mile from our driveway. The vacant winding country roads of the area beckon your road bike. Within a five-mile radius are three state parks offering outdoor recreation including biking, hiking, picnicking and swimming. Spa facilities are available nearby at the Kenwood Inn and Spa or Sonoma Mission Inn and Spa.
A warm gracious living room invites you to sit by the fire and play cards, read, or watch a movie. The family room is off the patio and pool and has a wood burning stove.
The large, gourmet equipped kitchen allows several to happily cook while enjoying the company of their friends. You'll find such touches as a professional range, granite counters, and an espresso maker. The dining area seats eight, and a café/game table is in the family room.
There are a total of three bedrooms and three baths on the property. There is an additional queen pullout sofa in a semi private living room.
The main house has two bedrooms and two full baths. The master bedroom has a king bed and doors leading to the patio and hot tub. The second bedroom has a queen bed. The master bath includes double sinks and a large Jacuzzi (bathtub).
Our spacious guest house is just steps away. It features a king bed, living area, mini-kitchen, full bath, and verandah.
The newly remodeled barn has one bedroom with 2 queen beds, a bathroom and a pool/pingpong table,
While fully equipped for entertaining, this is our family country home. We cannot accommodate large parties owing to zoning and our septic system. We do not wish to disturb our neighbors in this peaceful, private area. We ask that no more than ten be on the property.
We invite you to come, enjoy your family and friends, and enjoy our home in Sonoma Valley!

06/29/07 Positive This property is so fantastic! Our family had so much fun winding through the beautiful hills and vineyards of Kenwood to find this hidden jewel. Once we arrived, we enjoyed exploring the tasteful and casual main house, charming studio guest house and the cozy converted barn. For our family, center stage was the beautiful courtyard patio with a large table and rock edged pool. We appreciated having a removable and unobtrusive child safety fence in place upon our arrival. The kitchen was a dream - the cooks in our family used lavender and rosemary fresh from the patio garden in several dishes. The pool, bocce court and garden paths appealed to our children, and the adults enjoyed the ambiance of the courtyard patio during the day and evening as a conversation area.

04/03/07 Positive This is a very beautiful property that comfortably accommdates ten people. The grounds are spacious and provides lots of privacy from neighbors. Photos are accurate but doesn't do the property justice in representing it's beauty. It's the perfect Sonoma getaway.
04/03/07 Positive This house was a wonderful retreat in Sonoma. It is tucked away from all the main roads, in a beautiful and relaxing setting. The house is very spacious, clean, nicely furnished, and comfortable. The beds were comfy, the kitchen well-appointed... it is a real gem!
