House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 2-6)
One Sunday afternoon, my partner and I were at the West Portal movie theater in San Francisco and I was pouring through the “Real Estate Times” rag during previews when I saw a picture of THAT view; I said to Jonathan that if the “real view” was anything like the picture, that’s a sweet property. The next weekend, I visited friends in Sonoma County and I drove up to the property just in time for the sunrise; it was a quiet, tearful moment, one that I will never forget. The very next day, I asked Jonathan to return with me, and 2 months later, we owned the property! This was November 2002. As an architect (Jonathan) and designer (Alan), our design process took a few years to settle upon a “final” master plan. I believe we nabbed the last construction loan available at the time, and embarked on our build-out in September '09, completing our home in September '10. I also lead the endeavor as the owner/general contractor. We have been very clear from the onset of pursuing the project, specifically, that we create a sanctuary for whomever we had the pleasure to share our home with. It is with a heartfelt invitation that we hope you have an experience, privately or collectively, that nurtures and sustains your spirit; welcome. Alan & Jonathan
Alan purchased this House in 2010
Why Alan chose Healdsburg
Location, Location, Location!!! Whether you find yourself on the town square, or within the surrounding landscapes of our region, you will feel inspired. Healdsburg is an intimate community, whose warmth is expressed through it's citizens and the fine resturants, art galleries, coffee shops, one-of-a-kind shops and of course, wineries. As for our specific property, the privacy and views are unparalled. While we might take credit for the design of the house, it's Mother Nature at her best. During the day, indoor/oudoor living will connect you to nature, and nurture your spirit; night time will deliver an intimate close-up of the stars, moon and planets.

Unimaginable and Rare Experience
We spent a memorable long weekend at The Modern Home. We were excited to see the home since the pictures were so inviting. The home is done with such intention and purpose - beautifully decorated, luxurious beds and a peaceful backyard. We actually didn't want to leave but had made arrangements to visit local sites. We did spend every evening cooking and enjoying the property. We were fortunate to meet the owners -- they were as lovely as the property!! Very kind and attentive to our questions and requests. I highly recommend this property and would return without question. Worth every penny!!
Perfection in every way
The photos and description of this property do not do it justice, it is absolute paradise. From the architecture to the views and all the little person touches like fresh flowers in every room, we were blown away by this gem of a getaway property in wine country. The hosts could not be more accommodating and made us feel right at home. Can’t wait to stay again.
Relaxation & beautiful views❤️❤️
Lovely home & amazing views of the valley. However the winding road up the hillside to the residence was challenging as each day we were scheduled for wine tastings. We totally enjoyed the evenings in the house & making dinner...of course enjoyed the fabulous wines of the region.
Staying in this home was absolutely amazing. Every detail was thought of and the homeowners went way beyond what was expected. My husband and I really enjoyed the amazing vineyard views and the beautiful hot tub/pool. The road going up to the house was long, but beautiful. The large redwoods and forest was beautiful to see every time we drove back to the house. I'm coming back for sure!!
Words will not describe the property and owners well... we were so well taken care of in a property that surpasses anything I have seen even in the media! This was a magical experience and as others have said you will not want to leave this property and once you have - you will dream about being back!
A Little Slice Of Heaven
From the moment we drove up to this property we felt like we were in heaven. The setting is so peaceful and serene and the grounds and pool are sophisticated and perfectly appointed. We loved Alan, the owner who met us upon arrival and so thoroughly showed us the home and how to work everything. We were left with a plate manchego and brie cheese with olives, crackers and a beautiful bottle of wine to ease into our stay. The pool was heated and sparkling and the interior of the home is designed to maximize privacy and bringing the outside in. It's modern but very comfortable. We can't wait to go back!
