Very well located on a ½ an acre with the back fence on the edge of Dry Creek Valley’s West Wines Vineyards, this beautiful ‘home away from home’ awaits you and your guests! First, be welcomed by a lovely landscaped yard out front with mature plantings and a small lawn which you can enjoy while sitting on the Adirondack chairs, under the covered front porch. Newly repainted inside and out, this beauty has been completely renovated from top to bottom and professionally decorated by Myra Hoefer Design of Healdsburg, with a Country French feel, new dual paned windows with 2” shutter blinds throughout, recessed lighting, new tile flooring, and remodeled kitchen and bathrooms.
Now let’s move outside to the back outdoor entertainment area which features a large wood west elm dining table, comfortably seating 8 under the covered patio, and with a new Weber Genesis propane grill. Just beyond the pergola is the new Hot Springs spa for 6+ with vineyard views. Two wooden chaise lounges with a large wooden umbrella complete this entertainment space. There are some planting beds next to the patio which will seasonally provide fresh herbs, peppers, tomatoes, and more. This back area is primarily graveled, there is also a large barn with a ping-pong table for guest leisure. Extra parking on the gravel drive in front of the garage will accommodate several more cars.
Moving on towards the back of the property, there is a small seasonal creek with a fence and gate. Beyond the bridge is another fully fenced area which abuts the vineyards, giving you an up close and personal ‘grape escape’. This area is also home to some willow and oak trees and provides forever views of the vineyard covered Dry Creek Valley floor and foothills beyond.
This home is located at the ‘mouth’ of the Dry Creek Valley and very convenient to its many famed wineries. The Alexander Valley wine growing region is just a little bit north and east of the property and only a 5-10 minute drive for more wineries, tastings, food, and fun! The Russian River Valley is the third acclaimed wine growing region near Healdsburg and is just a few miles south, off the 101, on River Road going west.
Many more nearby activities are also available including canoeing, kayaking, and fishing on the Russian River, and the Lake Sonoma Recreation Area with marina and boat rentals is just 10 minutes west of the Maison Du Soleil.
The Armstrong Old Growth Redwood Preserve is also nearby about 30 minutes away, off River Road, and on the way to the beautiful and rugged Sonoma Coast. With a day trip, you can also explore the Silverado Wine Trail through Calistoga to the city of Sonoma. With so much to see and do, you will want to spend as much time as you have, and come back again for more fun and relaxation!
