Elements is a private estate compound nestled on acreage in the magnificent redwoods of Sonoma County. Four detached buildings and expansive decking comfortably accommodates large groups. You'll be located within minutes of the beaches of the Sonoma Coast and the vineyards of the Russian River Valley, and be amazed by the solitude that surrounds you.
Some unique aspects of this property include:
- A jetted hot tub centered in a ring of redwoods
- Chefs kitchen with commercial range
- 6+ separate outdoor seating areas
- Free 150Mbps WiFi
- An extensive collection of family board games
The grounds have been landscaped with indigenous grasses and ferns, highlighting the phenomenal native redwood trees on the property, including a beautiful 500 year old redwood tree. Pathways and decks wind throughout, offering innumerable walks among ever-changing scenery, including a serene running pond, an antique stone masonry fountain, and an enchanting seasonal waterfall to delight and awaken the senses.
When you hike from the main compound, pathways become forest trails beckoning further into remote adjoining terrains still on the property. Austin Creek, with its numerous swimming holes and opportunities for river wading, is delightful in summer and winter alike.
The entire retreat is professionally lit to a stunning degree, complimenting its allure day and night.
Entertaining is effortless and everyone can still have their own privacy, while gathering together in the large entertaining areas. All 4 bedrooms, with a total of 3 king and 1 queen beds, are furnished with quality linens and down comforters. There is also 1 queen pull out bed in the living room of the main house, as well as an inflatable mattress that can be used as needed.
Main House & Kitchen
The main house is a contemporary craftsman structure with a great room combining the living room, dining room, and kitchen, a master bedroom with walk-in closet, and two bathrooms. The master bathroom has a large bath tub, and the other is exceptionally large with multiple shower heads and a walk-out to a Zen-inspired private garden. There is also an office with desk and printer.
The fully appointed kitchen is centered around a granite island and can accommodate multiple chefs. Appliances include a professional six burner gas Wolf range/oven, microwave drawer, stainless refrigerator/freezer, garbage compactor, serving trays, and complete dinner service featuring the kind of tableware you might find in a high-end restaurant. A pantry offers a variety of seasonings and other basics.
The main house is replete with fine attention to every detail, from the refectory-style dining table (comfortable seating for 8+), the deep Restoration Hardware leather sofa, to custom designed decorative Portuguese candle chandelier, which radiates throughout the main living area.
The West Terrace, BBQ, and Fire Pit
The West Terrace, accessed via a large sliding door from the main house, is the essence of indoor/outdoor living and is an example of what makes this estate so unique. The outdoor kitchen and gardens were crafted from river stone years ago when the property was a summer campsite. It now includes a state-of-the-art gas BBQ, sink, lighting, and seasonal herb garden. It's an outdoor living room and is a great place to enjoy a warm day or cool evening in the company of friends and family.
The original river stone fire pit is now the focal point of a modern and sophisticated outside entertainment area, including outdoor speakers controlled by your mobile phone via the Sonos Sound System.
The outdoor dining table with seating for 14+ was custom made from the center cut of a local redwood tree. It’s the perfect setting for a large family gathering or a romantic retreat.
The Guest House
The guest house has its own terrace and seating area. Its windows have beautiful garden views as well, but with different vistas, giving this two-bedroom space a unique atmosphere and privacy. It has two bedrooms, one with a king size bed, and one with a queen size bed, each with their own private entrance to the outdoors, connected by a common hallway to the bathroom. The spacious multi shower head bathroom offers a mini spa experience off a secluded and private patio.
The “cabin” is everyone’s favorite. The pine-paneled interior is a classic recreation of the traditional summer camp cottage. It has its own bathroom, luxurious king size bed, and heated outside shower. The cabin also adjoins a very large deck with its own views of the redwoods and gardens. It's a secluded gem.
The Yoga + Exercise Studio
This quaint structure is situated in the quiet of the lower gardens, accessible via a Japanese wood walkway. The deck off the back offers another sitting area with meditative views. The studio offers yoga mats, blocks, adjustable weights, mirrored wall and more. The yoga studio can also accommodate overnight guests if the need arises, using the provided inflatable mattress. It also has a Sonos sound system connected to the main house, controllable by your phone.
A Hot Tub in the Redwoods
At the center of the compound is the spa area, featuring a circular jetted hot tub situated in the center of an ancient ring of redwood trees. It’s truly a magical location: A soak in the Elements hot tub at night lets you link with nature and the starlit sky, a wonderful harmonious experience.
The Treehouse Terrace
There is a tranquility and peacefulness to this place that feels unique and special. It's one of those things that must be experienced to be appreciated. Not only does this deck perched at the top of the property offer some of the best views, it has this amazing restorative energy about it - it's difficult to describe, but many of our guests have agreed they can feel it too.
