GORGEOUS WINE COUNTRY PROPERTY AND CONTEMPORARY HOME IN PRESTIGIOUS SETTING
Your Zen oasis awaits in this stunning contemporary home in one of Sonoma’s premiere settings. Known for its beautiful homes and countrified environment, the 7th Street East location is tucked away but convenient to everything that Wine Country has to offer including wineries, restaurants, shopping and more.
Fully fenced with a striking new iron gate, the front courtyard not only gives access to this turnkey home but also provides a private garden in which to relax and enjoy your surroundings. The home is defined by walls of glass that look out onto the meticulous gardens, planted in a myriad of complimenting trees and shrubbery. The home and property are the embodiment of peace and tranquility.
The serene formal living room is enhanced by newly refinished American cherry hardwood floors and a handsome fireplace, the highlight of which is a concrete mantle created by renowned designer Fu-Tung Cheng. With huge walls of glass both front and back, the striking space brings the natural landscape directly into the home and provides the sought after indoor/outdoor appeal. Throughout, find custom lighting fixtures from Hubbardton Forge as well as all new LED recessed lighting that are lovely amenities. Whole house speakers are hidden throughout and controlled via a media closet.
The open floor plan extends to a beautiful formal dining room with views to the gardens on three sides. The adjacent chef’s kitchen features a center island with a striking Fu-Tung Cheng counter. The remainder of the counters are done in an eye-catching mat black-finished granite with sleek custom wood cabinets above and below. Stainless steel appliances include a Viking 6-burner range and other professional equipment. Beyond the kitchen, a sunroom or breakfast nook can be also used as a library, den, or a home office or work space.
The main bedroom overlooks a pond and fountain in the back garden. The beautiful bathroom features a custom tansu vanity designed in San Francisco’s Japantown. Note the soaking tub and the cherry built-ins in the adjacent walk-in closet. The guest bedroom includes a private entrance as well as a sitting area or office space and a beautiful full bathroom with another custom tansu vanity.
Outside, a deck area can be used for outdoor dining and leads to spacious stand-alone home office. Further along, find the casita, a large studio space with a full kitchen and bathroom. The casita, featuring cork floors, a skylight, French doors and a wood stove as well as an AC unit makes a perfect guest house or rental unit.
Designed by well-known landscape architect Victor Levine and featured in “Sunset Magazine,” the gorgeous gardens include gravel paths that intersect with flagstones, rock walls and verdant plants and trees including a small redwood grove. The atmospheric gas firepit area is an amazing place to adjourn on cool summer evenings. The peaceful pond includes a burbling water feature. A small shed houses the new well pump and can store garden tools.
With peace, serenity and privacy, let this home be your sanctuary in this bustling world we live in.

A small town with a rich history, the center of the locavore food movement, and situated in the heart of Wine Country, the city of Sonoma is content to play country mouse to its more citified cousin, Napa. You won't find enormous tour buses disgorging hundreds of passengers in downtown Sonoma; the city of 10,000 residents is mostly laid-back and quiet. Centered on what many call one of the most beautiful town plazas in the state, with its historic, preserved Mission that dates back to 1823, Sonoma has the feel of a small country town -- that is, if a small country town boasted more than a dozen tasting rooms of award-winning wineries. Surrounded by vineyards and more than 60 world-class wineries that mix the elegant with the down home, Sonoma is ground zero for great wine and the lifestyle that goes with it. All that makes Sonoma a premier destination, sought after for its mellow pace, natural beauty, and proximity to San Francisco, just 45 miles south. Sonoma offers plenty of things to do, including jazz festivals, parades, cooking classes, the Sonoma International Film Festival, and exhibitions and openings at Sonoma Valley Museum of Art. Spacious homes in the vineyards and rolling hills around Sonoma command spectacular views. Today, the multimillion-dollar estates of Sonoma range from Tuscan-style villas to more adventurous concrete and glass architectural statements.
