Inspired by the châteaux of the France, this ±9.73 acre Sonoma Valley escape is singular in two respects: the most splendid outdoor entertaining space and unobstructed views over Lovall and southern Sonoma Valleys. Secluded at the end of a gated drive, this two-story home is sheathed in stucco and has a steep, slate roof. A grand terrace surrounds an infinity-edge swimming pool.
Solid oak door opens to a double height entry hall with crystal chandelier. A generous living room has high ceilings, recessed/spot art gallery lighting, picture windows with custom Dupioni silk drapery. The affect is a blend of old world refinement and contemporary elegance. Two sets of French doors lead to terraces on either side of the living room with views all the way to the Golden Gate Bridge. On the western side are two spacious offices with custom chandeliers, bay windows and built-in seating. To the south is an open-concept ‘great room’ which is perfect for laid back living, dining and cooking.
On the north side of the living room, in its own wing, the primary bedroom enjoys eastern views through oversized windows with Dupioni silk drapery and French doors to another terrace. This commanding suite has: oak flooring, a custom chandelier, gas fireplace with cast mantel, three walk-in closets, a bathroom enhanced with large format travertine and mosaic floors, separate marble top vanities, a glass and tile shower, and soaking tub. Blissful hours can be spent outdoors on huge stone terraces, replete with sunbathing spots, wisteria-draped pergolas, and fully equipped outdoor kitchen. The poolside guesthouse is equally stylish as the main residence, with oak flooring, hand-blown pendant lights, a vaulted ceiling, a Murphy bed, elegant bath, and French doors. This location is ideal—quiet, elevated, with end-of-road privacy yet just minutes from Sonoma’s historic Plaza and one hour to San Francisco.
