Only 3.5 miles northeast of Healdsburg’s historic plaza, this stunning, nearly new, custom 3br + bonus room / 2.5 bath “castle” is a 4 acre vineyard estate property that is perched on a knoll and surrounded by vineyards with a beautiful view of the foothills of the Alexander Valley wine growing region and beyond. This spectacular two-story home is nearly 3300 square feet with central heat and AC, dramatic cathedral ceilings, beautiful hardwood and custom tile flooring, and a fabulous gourmet kitchen to satisfy the most discriminating chefs.
The striking entryway is just a couple of steps up to a glass paned door with decorative... windows on either side. The travertine tiled entry foyer welcomes you to this special home where you will find an absolutely stunning great room on your right that is the centerpiece of the residence. Down the hallway to the left, you will find the downstairs bedrooms, bathrooms, and den/bonus room. As you make your way into the great room, you will be wowed by the beautiful formal dining area with a custom chandelier, a large eco-friendly mango wood dining table and decorative chairs for 8+.
Seating is provided by two new matching leather sofas and ottoman. This lovely gathering place is also graced with a wonderful entertainment center featuring a 60” Panasonic LED HD television with DirecTV and surround-sound speakers to enhance your audio experience.
The opposite end of the great room is a gourmet kitchen with granite countertops, under-lit cabinets, professional stainless steel appliances, and a wood counter-top island with prep sink.
The balcony area just outside the kitchen includes a beautiful outdoor table with umbrella and seating for 8, a couple of lounge chairs, a convenient side serving table and bar, and a new Weber Genesis grill. Decorative nighttime lighting around this deck provides a special ambience for enjoyment of colorful sunsets and sparkling outdoor evenings for star gazers.
Back inside now, as we move past the entry foyer, first on your left is a stairway and banister leading to the glorious master suite. Enter this space through double wood doors and be welcomed by the beautiful king-sized bed with upholstered bed board, custom wall sconces, and cathedral ceiling with a Casablanca ceiling fan. The Master bedroom also has a ceramic log gas fireplace with a 32” Visio HD TV with DirecTV, and an iHome dock for your iPad or iPhone. Adjoining the master suite is a large walk-in closet that will provide more than adequate space for our guests.
The stunning ensuite bath can be entered from either side of the bed. The ‘heart’ of this beautiful and spacious ensuite bath is its large jetted soaking tub and oversized, walk-in, tiled shower with massage showerhead and wand, as well as a small bench. This bathroom includes a private water closet.
Back down to the main floor and down the hallway, first up on the right is a very convenient powder room. Next up on the left is the family/media/4th bedroom with a 42” Visio LCD HD TV. This lovely room is furnished with a comfy LA-Z-Boy leather queen sofa with an upgraded air comfort mattress. Also, if children are in your group of vacationers, there is a Pack-N-Play, high chair, and lightweight stroller available for your use. Included is a small library of local recreation books related to hiking, wine tasting, fishing and exploring the greater Sonoma valley.
Next up on the right is the first guest bedroom with a queen canopy bed, matching dresser, side table, and double closet. A decorative wall shelving unit stands against the wall opposite the bed with a 27” Samsung LCD HD TV with DirecTV that sits on a small desk workstation. This guest bedroom shares a Jack N Jill bath with an adjoining bedroom on the other side. The bathroom has lovely earth toned tile floors and a shower over tub combo. Locking pocket doors on each side of this bathroom assure privacy for the guests using each of the bedrooms.
The second guest bedroom has a decorative wood and wrought iron 4-poster, queen bed with end table, lamp, dressers, and a 27” Dynex LCD HD TV with DirecTV, and iHome dock for iPad or iPhone. From the hallway, in between the bedrooms, you will find the indoor.
Below the house is a mature oak shaded picnic/party area with two white resin picnic tables on a concrete patio. This area is also home to the wood-fired pizza oven, but its use is only for those who are experienced wood burning pizza oven chefs as there is significant risk of fire if the oven is not used properly. Also provided is a Smoke Hollow double wide combination grill with a propane BBQ on one side and a briquette on the other for a convenient outdoor barbecue or picnic. For sports enthusiasts, there is a basketball hoop with glass backboard and a large garage space open for guests that offers a bike repair rack, croquet, badminton, volleyball and bocce ball sets.Read more

Some girlfriends and I stayed at this gorgeous Healdsburg home in the spring and had a relaxing and fun time. The House is in a perfect location for wine tasting, exploring historic Healdsburg, and getting to tastey restaurants. It has breathtaking views of the wine country and has all the amenities you would need on site to spend a weekend in too (i.e. spa, basketball, bocce, bbq, etc.). I hope to go back soon and create more memories with my friends and family!
