Very well located at the eastern end of the famed Dry Creek Valley and only 2.5 miles to historic Healdsburg’s Downtown Plaza, this charming Wine Country Cottage maintains the beautiful craftsmanship of its time, and yet is newly renovated, upgraded, and modernized with comfort and convenience all around. This ‘lovely lady’, in her spectacular setting, is newly furnished and beautifully decorated with original, eclectic, and handmade artwork painted in lovely relaxing hues, with newer dual paned windows, a new roof, hardwood floors, and a newly remodeled kitchen.
Enjoy the 3+ private acres with the beauty of nature all around and the hillsides covered with oaks, conifers, madrones, manzanitas, etc. An adjacent Zinfandel Vineyard provides vineyard views and grapes for the Rafanelli and Dry Creek Vineyard wineries’ excellent Zinfandel wines, and beyond enjoy the beautiful southerly views of the Dry Creek Valley and foothills.
Outdoor amenities abound for enjoying the beauty of Mother Nature, including a large side deck with umbrella and outdoor table and chairs for 8, and a separate spa deck with brand new 7+ person Hot Springs spa. A wild, natural, and peaceful garden area with a small lawn creates a special environment on the gentle downslope side of the home below the side deck, and is adorned with lovely plantings, shrubs, a graveled pathway, with seating areas, planting boxes, and is shaded by beautiful, mature California oaks.
A propane Weber grill is provided for your grilling needs and the outdoor amenities are completed by a one-car covered carport and an adjacent large gravel drive area where there is room for another 3 or 4 cars when needed.
Now come on in and enter the beautiful living room with an original open-beamed, Redwood, cathedral ceiling, oak hardwood floors, and a ceramic gas logged fireplace with brick and oak mantle. For your entertainment pleasure, a 42” Sharp flatscreen HD TV is provided with DirecTV including the NFL Ticket and a Samsung DVD player. The well appointed living room is also ‘home’ to a newer deluxe queen sleeper sofa, comfy chairs, and a coffee table.
The living room opens to the dining room with bead board wainscoting, two windows, and a full glass door which leads to a brick railed porch transitioning to a large redwood deck with outdoor table, umbrella, and seating for 8+. Centered in the dining room is a beautiful handmade, recycled, wooden table seating 8+. The kitchen’s adjacent countertop also seats another 2-3 guests, as well as your ‘backseat chefs’. Open to the dining room is a newly renovated kitchen with granite countertops and built-in workstation.
The ‘heart’ of this lovely kitchen is a new stainless steel Frigidaire ceramic cooktop range with custom overhead hood. Additional appliances include a GE Fridge over freezer, Frigidaire dishwasher, Cuisinart toaster, Sharp Carousel microwave, and a coffee maker. Post-feast cleanup is made easy with a double deep stainless steel sink with a garbage disposal and a high end pullout faucet.
In moving on, we reach the bedrooms and bathrooms hallway; to the far right is a guest bedroom with a leather upholstered queen wooden sleigh bed, beautiful windows treated with decorative drapes for privacy and aesthetics, hand carved decorative art from recycled doors, and wooden decorative panels from Indonesia. In the center of this hall is the first shared full bath which is original and in mint condition. The original butter cream and ivory checkerboard tiled shower and vanity brings you back to the 50’s, and also provided is a tiled shower over tub combo, a single porcelain sinked vanity, and a large opening window with a privacy shade.
The hallway is also ‘home’ to the linen cupboard with drawers and a closet. On the left side of this hallway is the second guest bedroom with a queen platform bed, more beautiful and original artwork, and also includes a curtained indoor laundry enclosure with a stacked new Electrolux HE frontloading washer and dryer combo. This room features a beautiful Italian-themed oil painting, as well as a very interesting Spanish Renaissance-styled painting of a lady hanging above the bed with a window looking out on the brand new spa and deck, with more beautiful views beyond.
Indoor access to the private Master Suite’s entry hall is through this second bedroom. This lovely Master is carpeted wall-to-wall but for the tile floored ensuite bathroom with single sinked vanity and large walk-in shower, providing easy access for those who do not want to step over the tub to shower. The Master Suite also has a comfy queen carved wooden sleigh bed with beautiful artwork above and lovely vanilla colored wainscoting from floor to ceiling. The Master Suite also has its own private outside entry/exit door which opens to a small private fenced courtyard; on through the gate and you can re-enter the home through the front door....Read more

This is a heavenly place in a heavenly setting. Perfect for our wine tasting girls weekend. Perfect location for wine tasting. This house would also be perfect for couples who wouldn't mind sharing bathrooms and having someone walk quietly past them in bed. We would definately stay at DCV again. And hope to!
