Elegant Palladian

With breathtaking panoramic views, this approximately 40-acre estate rests on the vine-covered Mayacamas Mountain range. Views of vines encircle the property and reach across Sonoma Valley, over the Bay to the skyline and lights of San Francisco. The stunning setting includes mature oaks and madrone, meadows, and a winter stream.

The villa consists of four structures: the main residence, two guest houses, and a stone garage. Access is via gated entry to a paved driveway with gravel circular drive and plentiful paved and unpaved parking areas. The award-winning, three-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath main residence has heated stone floors and is air-conditioned. The exterior entry features multiple columns with a gentle staircase and vintage French entry doors. The foyer opens to the living room with a splendid 22-foot square rotunda, exquisite, hand-carved stone fireplace mantle, and multiple banks of tall French doors with terrace access. The formal dining room is flanked by cast stone columns with double pocket doors that open to a library/media room. The open kitchen has stainless steel countertops, a breakfast bar, and access to the terrace. The curved rear terrace is accessed from multiple tall sets of French doors.

As you pass through three levels of entertaining patios detailed with party lights and an ornate fountain, down stone stairs, you find yourself at the pool and a luxurious one-bedroom, one-bath cabana guest house. There is a charming kitchenette with breakfast bar, a wood-burning fireplace, cushioned window seats, and French doors that provide views and access to covered lounging areas and the heated pool with spa. The cabana and the pool patio share a seamless transition from indoor to outdoor with hand-crafted cement floors. The European-style pool with lion spouts and covered terrace complement the main residence in its exquisite grandeur.
