Overview

Sonoma County Estate Rental Photos and Description

Estate, 5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Set in the hills above Dry Creek Valley, this house is a glass and steel house made with prefabricated materials that sits on 80 acres.  Featured on the cover of San Francisco Chronicle Magazine and Interior Design, this green home built by architect Olle Lundberg, has five bedrooms, three bathrooms, a large pool and loads of landscaped play areas including a boccie court.  

The view into the vineyards, valley and Mayacama mountains is unsurpassed in Sonoma County and the back patio and fireplace is a perfect place to enjoy the wine you brought home from the neighboring wineries in the valley below.  Just a ten minute drive through the most beautiful vineyards is Healdsburg.  A charming little Sonoma town set on an old-fashioned square that has been transformed into a food-lovers paradise by several award-winning restaurants including Doug Keane's Cyrus, Charlie Palmer's Dry Creek Kitchen and many more.    From the unbelievable organic farmer’s market to the big band in the squaw.

This home is paradise!!!

  • 5 of 5

An incredible view of the entire valley, a wonderful open, airy interior, and very smartly furnished. A fantastic pool. Bring your friends and you may decide you don't need to go anywhere, the place is that perfect. Definitely plan to return again.

Mind Blowing

  • 5 of 5

As you drive up the road and see this amazing house on a hill looking only as if a dream wondering who might live there and stating how lucky they are, that moment when you realize that is your house for the weekend. Our group all went crazy with joy, the house is so amazing you almost want to forget your wine tasting plans and just stay in. It's all the photos crack it up to be and more. We had a wonderful time and made memories that would last a lifetime. It's a little pricey but worth every penny.

loved, loved, loved!

spectacular property - very kid friendly. we had 8 couples and 4 toddlers. there's an amazing area right outside the main space where the kids could play and the pool was a bit further away so you didn't have to worry about the pool. also note there are lots of umbrellas at the pool so plenty of shade. truly fantastic! plenty of space, very well equipped (all the pots and pans you could want), and just an outstanding experience. one of the prettiest properties I've ever seen!

Exceptional Property

  • 5 of 5

How do I describe this place -- AMAZING! I rented this property for a weekend trip for my company. I was blown away once I started driving closer to the property. There was always this one house I could see amongst the hills of Dry Creek Road that stood above the rest, but I didn't know it was my rental! The road leading up to the house was very secluded. Once atop the hills, there was this beautiful, modern structure in front of me. It was elegant in all its simplicity. It has everything I needed and more. Gorgeous grounds with a pool that sat probably 100 meters from the house, and every bedroom was very private. I couldn't have been more pleased with the space. It was relaxing, yet close enough to all of the wineries to make for a great stay. I would highly recommend this property to anyone, however I hope this doesn't make it impossible to book in the future. Want to keep my little secret :)

Thanks for a great stay!

Exquisite

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated my husband's birthday at this gorgeous home in Healdsburg. Every detail was absolutely exquisite from the breathtaking panoramic views to the spectacular living spaces and bedroom/bath accommodations throughout the house. We particularly enjoyed the pool, patio and bocce ball court. Shana was incredibly helpful as was Scott, the caretaker, who attended to our every need. A five star experience in every way.

The Perfect Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My wife, daughter and I rented this home for my daughter's April vacation. We were looking for a property with convenient access to Healdsburg and the vineyards of the Dry Creek and Russian River Valleys, but also for privacy and comfortable space for lounging.

This house exceeded our expectations in every regard. To begin with, location is fantastic. The house is indeed very convenient to Healdsburg and sits just up the hill from some the region’s best vineyards - the private road leading up to the house winds through the vines and past the tasting room of the Lambert Bridge Winery. The glass fronted side of house offers an 180 degree view of the valley and the hills beyond. The lush green hills on the remaining sides offer complete privacy for the house and the pool area.

Opening the door for the first time, we were captivated by the house’s architecture (the website photos don’t do it justice.) The house is entirely framed in steel, clad in corrugated metal and sits directly on the finished concrete foundation. This simplicity highlights the enormous windows, incoming light and views in every direction. The open main room is organized around a 40 foot central atrium and spills easily onto the patio, lavender patches and bocce court. The kitchen is well equipped, the seating areas are contemporary and comfortable and the dining area perfect for enjoying the valley view. Wifi and an excellent sound system worked without a hitch.

While we did visit vineyards and ate a few times in town, the highlights of this particular vacation were sitting by the pool, cooking on the grill, having a glass of wine by the outdoor fireplace and waking up to sunrise over the valley. Whether for a small family retreat or a multi-couple gathering, we would recommend this property without reservation.
