Overview

About the property

Chateau / Country House, 5 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 12-16)

This spacious Sonoma home is situated in prestigious Sobre Vista estates on 5+ acres with a gated driveway, solar heated pool and in-ground spa. The main house has a large kitchen with granite counters with an airy eat in table for the entire family/group to have breakfast while looking out on the garden and lawn. The adjacent dining room seats 16 with plenty of room surrounding for everyone to join in on elegant family meal while the living rooms offers expansive windows, a wood-burning fireplace, and a great place for relaxing.

In the main house, kids will enjoy their room (a twin over double bunk-bed plus a daybed with trundle) as well as the toys, games, bikes, and basketball hoop with plenty of space indoors to find a nook to play in. (We have 3 kids, so we get it!). The master bedroom is huge with a king size bed and an adjacent nook for additional sleepers, complete with its own jacuzzi bathtub and double headed shower. Two additional bedrooms look out onto the garden each with a queen size bed. The fully enclosed pool room functions as a 6th bedroom with two twin day beds and has its own attached bathroom. The

The guest house is just steps from the house and has a king size bed with a separate living room, its own kitchen and bathroom with a walk in shower. (extra sleeping mats in the closet)

In addition, separate from the house and away from the noise of the pool is a private office complete with a desk, wifi, printer/scanner and plenty of shade, for those of you who just can’t seem to get away completely.

Our charming stables give it that unique Sonoma flair to make sure that you know you are not in the city, but alas the property does not come fully equipped with horses.

We’ve worked hard to make this house both beautiful and comfortable and hope you enjoy it as much as we do. The large gathering spaces and the flexible sleeping arrangements, make it perfect for couples vacations, girls’ getaways, family gatherings, holidays, or to allow everyone to stay and gather for nearby winery weddings.

We’re surrounded by wineries for those wanting to go tasting or just step out the door and go on a short hike to the Sobre Vista lake with vistas over the valley and a plenty of ducks to make it worth your while. Borrow our bikes for a short ride into Glen Ellen (1 mile away) or to Sonoma Plaza (4 miles away) or to the Sonoma Country Club golf course (1 mile away) or drive over to Infineon Raceway (12 miles) if you are so inclined. Or just sit by the pool…

About The Owner

We live in San Francisco and come to Sonoma as often as we can. Kathleen is a doctor and works in the Dignity Health system. Paul works in the SaaS/Software world.

The Owner purchased this chateau / country house in 2010

Why The Owner chose Sonoma County

We purchased this property so we could host events for our extended family that live throughout California and the Bay Area. The house is conveniently located to many fun and interesting attractions that provide entertainment for all generations. We strive to keep the house stocked with activities for young and old.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

A few things that set this property apart:

1) We are close to Sonoma Square and very accessible to all locations throughout the County. You wont be driving for 25 minutes just to get to the main road!

2) We know how important it is to stay connected. Unlike many homes in Sonoma we are on cable internet by Comcast/Xfinity so our internet is screaming fast with access points extended throughout the property.

3) We have converted our pool to a saltwater system so significantly fewer chemicals. Also our spa is attached to the pool which means it gets cycled with the pool water everyday resulting in a much cleaner, healthier spa experience than detached spas.

wished we could have stayed longer

  • 5 of 5

Such a beautiful setting for a great work meeting with some relaxation time. We loved the pool, the spa and fire pit along with the large dining room table which was great for our meetings. Perfect for our group!

Beautiful Setting

  • 4 of 5

The property surrounding the house is beautiful and we really enjoyed the outside living spaces. The house is well equipped and super clean. The negative for us was that only the master and apartment are air conditioned and it was over 100 degrees two of the days of our visit. It did cool off nice at night every night but the last one. The owner provided lots of information and was easy to reach. I would stay here again. I would like to give it 4.5 but that's not an option.

Beautiful and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in this beautiful home for 4 nights - a group of 13, with adults and kids. The house was clean, spacious, and plenty of room for our group. The grounds were beautiful and the pool + hot tub were awesome! The kitchen was spacious and well stocked with essentials and plenty of cookware. The groundskeeper, Jason, was very friendly and helpful. Paul was the very responsive and easy to work with. I highly recommend and will hopefully book it again!

Great house for large group!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in Paul's home with 11 other women while we toured wine country. It was so comfortable and spacious - such a great place for a large group. Jason, the caretaker, checked in on us on our first day to answer any questions we had and was so helpful. We had a great stay and would suggest this property!

GREAT LOCATION, GREAT HOUSE, GREAT OWNER

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time. We traveled with kids ages 2-12 and our nanny. The house is amazing. Toys to play with. Great facilities. Great bedrooms. All of the towels, sheets, blankets, heaters that you could possibly need. There is a pack and play if needed. The pantry has some miscellaneous snacks, seasonings and stuff. Many of the basics are there. There is a nice, expensive grocery store near by. The grounds keeper was very nice and helpful. The owner is very responsive to questions. I will likely stay again next year.
