Overview

About the property

Well appointed home on 1 acre,3 BR, 2 Baths, Pool,Hot Tub,private yard!

My home is perfect for a family, 2-3 couples, or a friends

getaway to celebrate a birthday, wedding, bachelorette party, anniversary or other special occasion!

A short 5 minute drive from downtown Sonoma, this home is located in the coveted east side of town and

centrally located to many wineries in both Napa and Sonoma. The home was purchased and completely refurnished in 2012 with new beds, appliances, sofas, furniture, etc. including a remodeled barn for entertainment, new flagstone patio, pergola, new hardwood floors, and freshly painted bedrooms. We recently completely renovated in 2017 the kitchen and bathroom and pool! The new kitchen is well-equipped with pots, pans, serving platters, dishes, etc. Both bathrooms include walk-in showers. There's a large flat screen TV in the living room, flat screen in the master, and Blueray/DVD player in the living room with cable service including HBO. There's also WiFi (Wireless Internet) and a Sonos stereo system that allows you to control music from your phone or laptop and has two separate music areas (1 inside and 1 outside by the pool). The barn is recently remodeled and is outfitted with ping pong, darts, a pool table, foosball, stereo, and sofa. We have a blast out there!

Walking into the front door you'll immediately notice the openness of the floor plan, with a kitchen that opens up to the large living room that flows into the spacious dining room, making for a 'great room' for entertaining. The outdoor pool and patio is located off of the dining room and is equipped with a dining table, lounge chairs, a pergola for shade, and a festive string of outdoor lights set on a dimmer, perfect for eating, relaxing and entertaining. There is a second deck with a brand new hot tub (2014) and outdoor speakers. The gorgeous views from the outdoor area are towards the west and north (primarily to the west) with open fields, vineyards, a horse ranch and

mountains in the distance. The 3 bedrooms are located on the other side of the house, comprised of a master bedroom with king bed, tv, private bath (incl. walk-in shower), and private deck, and two guest rooms both

with queen beds that share a full (new) bathroom.

About Seth Israel

We live in San Francisco and love the wine country. Originally from the east coast, we have lived in San Francisco Bay Area for nearly 15 years.

Seth Israel purchased this house in 2012

Why Seth Israel chose Sonoma County

Sonoma is a special place and this home has many of the key attributes that make this experience special - close to many wineries and attractions, beautiful peaceful views of adjacent farmland, vineyards, and hills, plenty of land to roam around, a classic barn for entertaining, and great indoor and outdoor space for relaxing. The pictures don't do the place justice!

What makes this house unique

The living areas - both indoor and outdoor - rural setting, beautiful views, spacious property, and central location make this place truly unique!

Beautiful home! Great for a group!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures don't do this home justice. It's a beautiful, open, and spacious home inside and it spills outside to an even more beautiful outdoor patio and pool area. Seth was easy to work with, had everything ready for us, and we could not have asked for anything better. We went with a group of three couples and this house was perfect for us. It's located perfectly to go visit Napa or Sonoma wineries easily, or you can just stay at the house and enjoy the pool and sunshine.

Great comfortable house near wineries

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house. Very well furnished and equipped with just about everything. What we noticed was that everything is in wonderful, clean condition -- towels, furniture, dishes. The decorating is chic but comfortable. Compared to other VRBO experiences this house shows real sensitivity to hospitality. Not full of personal items -- a fresh palette to enjoy time away. This property is much better than in the photos. There are herbs growing which we snipped for cooking. We love to walk and except for one short busy section, the roads nearby are lovely, passing close to vineyards. We walked to the Square in Sonoma and back. There were also cute sheep right across the street. We stayed Monday through Friday and it felt like home.

Cute, cozy & roomy

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here! There were 8 girlfriends. The house was great, pretty easy to find what we needed and Seth was super fast to respond to the few questions we did have. The king bed and sheets were super comfy, slept great! We're already talking about coming back and staying a little longer!

The only suggestions I would make is it is super hard to see the neighborhood turn in at night and only one way has any sort of reflector/address marker - add another one. Also the house numbers are hard to see at night, I would put a reflective sign on the gate or driveway.

A comfortable home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We had the privilege of spending four nights in this home and it was the perfect fit for our group. There were three couples in our party and we had plenty of living space for all of us - and then some! Unfortunately, the weather was cool and rainy most of our stay, but that just gave us an excuse to start a cozy fire every morning and evening. We really enjoyed lounging on the comfortable chairs and couches and catching up after a busy day of touring vineyards and eating out. We also enjoyed making breakfast in the well-stocked kitchen. It seriously had everything we needed! The backyard view is beautiful and the outdoor area would have been so fun to hang out in, had it not been rainy. The home has beautiful furnishings and rugs. Our bed was extremely comfortable, the towels were soft and there was even shampoo in the shower! The location was lovely, as we were very close to several nearby wineries and delicious restaurants. We would definitely stay here again.
