Imagine a private enclave within a short walk to the town of Sonoma, where your vista is lush hills and old oak trees. This casual wine country property is all about enjoying what Sonoma has to offer plus privacy, privacy, privacy. Located just a few blocks from the Historic Town Plaza this large secluded property, in the heart of Sonoma Wine Country, will provide your group with everything you need to make your stay wonderful, relaxing and memorable.
As you pass through the tall rock wall and old wooden doors you will immediately understand how special this property is and be transformed into serenity. Two sides of the property have high rock and wood walls that separate you from any viewers and provide you the privacy. The other two sides of the property are part of the Sonoma Open Space area. The gardens are planted with native plants like rosemary, lavender, heritage olive trees, flowering vines and populated with beautiful old oak trees. Just past the entrance, in the large landscaped front area of the property, there is a heated dipping pool and outside seating area. As you move through the pathway to the house there are multiple areas to explore and enjoy as well as places to sit and relax on the veranda porch or within the stone and plant landscapes. At the back of the property the patio area is a great place to grill and sit down for dinner or enjoy a glass of wine or morning coffee, and view the local hills. There is easy access to the kitchen from this area through huge sliding doors. You get a general feeling of indoor/outdoor living. Also in this area is a crystal clean hot tub.
Interior – Main House
The foundation of main house, which once belonged to General Vallejo, who was one of the largest land owners in California, was built in 1837. However, the entire house has been beautifully and painstaking remodeled in the last few years and brought back to its original style, with all the updates and comforts we have become accustomed to expect. Every window in the house opens and offers great views of the property and the surrounding hills.
There are three bedrooms in the main house. The two downstairs queen bedrooms have in-suite bathrooms, yet the bedrooms are far enough away from each other to offer privacy. The third bedroom is an upstairs king with an in-suite and working fireplace. The views from this room are of the entire property.
The large dining room can easily sit 10+ people and the house has all the dishes and cutlery and wine glasses you will need to serve your group. The large professional kitchen, with top of the line appliances is equipped with everything your group will need to show off their culinary skills. Or, if you feel so inclined, use our recommended chef and enjoy food prepared from fresh locally grown ingredients and great Sonoma wines. The main living room, decorated with comfortable antique and period pieces has a working fireplace, a player piano, and a large screen cable TV.

Secluded and private studios, within a few steps from the main house, have great views and outside sitting areas. Each cottage, one with a queen and one with a king bed, have full bathrooms and kitchenettes with a microwave, refrigerator, sink and coffee maker.
