Very well located, just a couple miles north of the charming, historic, upscale Healdsburg Plaza, is your wonderful Getaway with close access to the Hwy 101. This special home rests at the ‘gateway’ of the famed Dry Creek Valley wine growing region, with dozens of world class wineries, and tasting rooms, and Lake Sonoma Recreational Area just a few minutes further west.
This beautifully renovated 1950’s charming and romantic bungalow, with central heat/AC, has new dual pane windows, oak hardwood flooring, crown molding, and a fabulous Great Room with dining, living, and kitchen areas. At the far end of the house, two lovely bedroo...ms with one king bed and one queen, and a third guest room/den with privacy curtains, is just off the Great Room with a new queen sleeper sofa. Entertainment is provided by a 46” Visio HD TV with Comcast Xfinity and a Toshiba Blu-ray player and the room is graced with vaulted ceilings and a custom vintage light. A well appointed and beautiful centrally located full bath features a jetted soaking tub with a glass-doored, tiled shower above, and unlimited hot water provided by the new ‘on-demand’ system. The den’s side door opens to a small enclosed patio, and just a few steps through a breeze way, you enter the detached laundry room with convenient half bath.
This property is fully fenced; in the front, by a 6’ high redwood fence and 10’ wide gate, deer fencing secures the sides and up the hill. A dozen mature redwood trees line the inside of the fence and provide a ‘breakfront’ from Dry Creek Road, allowing for a beautiful interplay of light and shadow, as the sun shines through, adding a touch of magic to this special place. A night-lit railed stairway leads up the hill, behind the house, to the large ‘lookout’ spa deck with a new 6-person hydrotherapy spa, and views through the trees to the vineyards beyond.
The front yard includes a large concrete patio with cast iron outdoor dining table for 6, Weber Genesis grill for preparing your ‘roast beast’, which transitions to the fern grotto and garden. You can also enjoy ‘watching the grapes grow’ in the boutique vineyard next door. Parking is provided by the 1-car garage, as well as plenty of room for parking in the drive. The laundry facility includes a washer and dryer set, a sink, iron and board, and a convenient half bath.
Now let’s enter your ‘home away from it all’! Through the lovely front entry, you are welcomed by the Great Room with dining, living, and kitchen areas. The formal dining room has a lovely wooden dining set for 6 with a custom metal and frosted glass and leaved chandelier. Just ‘next door’ is the living area with a new comfy overstuffed full sofa, end table, coffee table, area rug, and two overstuffed chairs with side table, and decorative fireplace.
The Great Room is completed by a fabulous Gourmet Kitchen, sure to please the most discriminating chef. Granite countertops and backsplash, abundant underlit oak cabinetry, a built-in workstation with Wifi, and a counter seating area for the ‘backseat chefs’ to contribute to the ‘chicken soup’, all add a special, luxurious quality to this culinary ‘creation station’. The heart of this excellent and well equipped kitchen is the professional stainless steel Viking 4-burner gas range with a convection feature for the oven and downdraft venting.
Other new stainless steel appliances include a Jenn-Air fridge over freezer, a Panasonic microwave, a GE Profile dishwasher, a large double sink with a shutter-blinded box window overlooking the front patio area, and a custom kitchen faucet with pullout wand. Additional amenities include a Cuisinart toaster and coffee maker, plenty of pots and pans, dishware, glassware, flatware, knives, and all the other necessities.
As referenced, at the back of the home and just off the Great Room is the third ‘guest room’/den with entertainment area, and the central hallway leads to the full bath and the first and second guest rooms. The two guest rooms have large dual-paned windows to let the beauty of outside, in and with drapes drawn, you can enjoy sleeping in or ‘day napping’. First guest bedroom has a king wooden sleigh bed with nightstands and lamps, a large dresser, and a leather chair for putting your shoes on. The second guest bedroom has a comfy queen bed with wood framed bed and upholstered head board, nightstands, and two lamps.
The Dry Creek Getaway is a great ‘home base’ for enjoying Healdsburg, a world class destination, and its 3 wine growing regions, the Dry Creek, Alexander, and Russian River Valleys. Many more activities are also available, including canoeing, kayaking, or fishing on the Russian River, Lake Sonoma Recreation Area, marina and boat rentals, the Armstrong Old Growth Redwood Preserve just off of River Road on the way to the Sonoma Coast, and for a day trip, you can also explore the Silverado Wine Trail, from Calistoga to the city of Sonoma.Read more
