Nestled amid the rolling hills, grandfather trees, and lauded vineyards of Kenwood, this peaceful 10± acre estate is a quintessential wine country haven with three residences, a heated pool aside entertaining pavilion, five acres of Cabernet vines, vibrant gardens, an orchard, a chicken coop, an olive grove, tasteful professional landscaping, areas of lush green grass, a bocce court, a fire pit and two wells.
Exemplifying classic modern Farmhouse charm, the main residence was rebuilt in 2011-12 and features a wonderful wrapping covered porch gazing out over the pool and vines to the hills; five bedrooms and baths; an airy great room with living, library, and dining spaces; an inviting kitchen; an office; and a chic covered rear terrace with view.
