Getaway: A ‘pristine, private and welcoming’ retreat in Sonoma Wine Country
“It’s pristine, private and welcoming,” said Marjie Orton of Engel & Völkers Kentfield, who is listing the residence priced at $1.78 million. “The backyard is a gardener’s dream and the home has artistic and creative touches throughout.”
Orton points to the great room’s retractable flat-screen television and a copper soaking tub in the owner’s suite as examples of features and amenities that go above and beyond the ordinary and expected.
Found at the end of a rural road on the west side of the Sonoma Valley, this single-story blends garden views with upscale finishes, like American Clay-plastered walls and lush, New Zealand wool carpeting that lines much of the 1,640 square feet of living space.
Mature trees shade a front yard accented by flowering hedges and a lawn divided by brick pathways. A deck stretches before the front door, providing a casual gathering space that doubles as an informal introduction to the home originally built in 1968.
Once inside, a flowing floor plan comes into focus. A surround sound system pumps music into the great room, while a bar counter finished with copper tiles rests opposite a galley kitchen bearing custom cabinetry and tile backsplashes.
Address: 19202 Twin Oaks Lane, Sonoma.
Price: $1.78 million.
Features: Set on more than half an acre, this pristine custom home boasts thoughtful and creative flourishes throughout. There’s a retractable flat-screen television and surround sound system in the great room, while the owner’s suite features a spa bathroom with a copper soaking tub. The listing includes a pair of insulated storage sheds in the backyard, as well as fire pit and a raised deck with a built-in hot tub.
A dining area across from the kitchen includes an alcove that’s ideal for storing a china cabinet or credenza, and the dining space segues into a family room with wood-paneled walls, a vaulted, beamed ceiling and wood-burning stove. Both this family area and kitchen open to the manicured rear garden that's designed for sharing, entertaining and crafting.
Fruit, flowers and vegetables sprout from raised garden beds fashioned from stone, while a circular fire pit rests in the shade beneath a mature tree. Nearby, a raised redwood deck includes a bench and a built-in hot tub, while the expansive lot stretches north to a pair of insulated custom sheds that could be used for storage, a workshop or an art studio. Meanwhile, the home’s oversized garage offers additional room for a home gym.
Begin and end each day in an indulgent owner’s suite lined with plush carpeting and illuminated by a bay window looking over the garden. The owner’s suite is highlighted by a sumptuous spa bathroom with dual vanities, a walk-in shower and a copper soaking tub set beneath picture windows.
