Classic Estate Vineyard And Farm
You enter this breathtaking property through a private gate that opens onto a majestic 2-acre biodynamic vineyard with a big red barn and palm trees in the distance.
At the bottom of the charming private drive, is a recently renovated and romantically designed main residence that blends stylish spaces for entertaining and living with modern amenities.
In the back is a small pool house, a therapeutic Jacuzzi and a 60-foot solar heated lap pool with sweeping westward facing views of vineyards.
Just a quick stroll past the pool is a large organic vegetable garden that yields a variety of bountiful seasonal vegetable crops that supply nearby upscale Italian restaurants.
The property includes more than 800 varietals of flowers, trees, herbs and plants, including at risk medicinal herbs. In 2015, this part of the gardens was designated a North American botanical sanctuary by United Plant Savers (www.unitedplantsavers.org).
To the right of the main house is a charming 1910s guest house perfect for hosting family and friends or for generating revenue from its 8-year perfect five-star Airbnb and VRBO profiles.
Rounding out the buildings is a classic red barn, along with a roadside berm planted with flowering shrubs and decorative flowers indigenous to Northern California wine country, and is a well-known iconic landmark.
The first floor of the main residence includes:
* a beautiful dining room, a living room, salon, office, a mudroom with a contemporary custom stone sink and countertop and a guest bedroom;
* A bathroom with an elegant chandelier, a mirror paneled wall and a stunning free-standing tub;
* a dining room that naturally extends to the outdoor patio overlooking the pool and gardens through floor-to-ceiling folding Nano doors and
* a professional grade chef’s kitchen that is perfect for preparing a true farm to table gourmet meal from the vegetables and fruits from the property’s lush gardens and orchard.
Beautiful hardwood floors with ambient flooring flow to the upstairs where there are two bedrooms and a bathroom with a glass enclosed rain shower, floor-to-ceiling tile and a marble counter.
The master bedroom has a high-peaked ceiling with a skylight and large windows overlooking the manicured grounds below.
Not a single detail has been overlooked as one-of-a-kind accents and contemporary lighting fixtures create modern elegance in this classic country residence.
The pool house has a guest suite and a ½ bath for overnight guests and an outdoor shower to rinse off before jumping into the pool.
Recently remodeled, the 1910s farm house is a throwback to another older era, but with the modern conveniences. As you enter, you are greeted by a gas fireplace and cozy, sunny rooms with sky lights.
Gorgeous views of the gardens and vineyards amaze from every window while the arched entry ways from room to room add to the country feel of this warm cottage.
The home has two bedrooms, a full bath and a wrap-around porch overlooking the property’s extraordinary scenery. The charming kitchen overlooks a vineyard with a napping loggia in the garden that is perfect for afternoon siestas, massages and entertaining.
Surrounded by world class vineyards, the farm’s 2-acre biodynamic vineyard generates not only a fabulous view but also revenue from the seasonal selling of its grapes to VML winery in nearby Healdburg.
Recently the farm’s Russian River Chardonnay was rated 94 points by Robert Parker and described by VML as “nothing less than transcendental.”
The big red barn is not only scenic but also functional as it includes an elevator and an in-law unit with a bathroom and kitchen. It also includes a temperature controlled 1,500 bottle wine cellar. What better place to store the award-winning wine grown on the property?
Imagine a day spent soaking in the sunshine by the pool while sipping the amazing Chardonnay grown in the vineyard and preparing a meal in your chef’s kitchen with some of the fruits and vegetables from the organic gardens.
The vineyard estate truly is a uniquely beautiful residence to reconnect with the earth while embracing the solitude that comes from owning a one-of-a kind wine country vineyard estate.
A farming community known for its Gravenstein apple orchards and grapevines, Sebastopol is a small, family-oriented city of orderly, older homes. Horses graze just a few blocks from Main Street, and cars brake for chickens brazenly crossing the road. The city’s natural beauty and its proximity to the rugged Sonoma coastline and Russian River redwood corridor are just some of the reasons Sebastopol is popular with Sonoma County homebuyers. Close to the Sebastopol business district, 100-year old Craftsman bungalows predominate. In the countryside, buyers can find custom homes on properties with vineyards, apple orchards, redwoods, and streams. To promote the sustainable farming and locavore movement, Sonoma County Farm Trails, an agritourism and farm-marketing group, offers tours of farms, ranches, and vineyards around Sebastopol.
