$6.7 million Sonoma estate is made for art lovers and bibliophiles

By

Lovers of Wine Country views, art and interior design, and books—so much space for books!—will go absolutely gaga over this 5,700-square-foot Sonoma estate on nearly 12 acres of both wild and manicured landscape.

Clearly custom-designed for artists, collectors, and bibliophiles, the house's sophisticated interiors have ample natural light and open spaces for highlighting interesting objets, and seemingly endless built-ins throughout but especially in the blue-lacquered library. Of course, there's artistry in the outdoors here, as well.


Overlooking cascading vineyards and hills stretching to Mount Diablo, the estate has the feels of Getty-style villa with Greek Doric columns, high ceilings studded with skylights, and curated rooms developed as vignettes for living. A series of hallways swathed in marble and warm wood make an ideal palette for sculptures and framed works. A sizable living room and dining area with whitewashed beams overhead share an open plan with two sets of double doors opening to the backyard.

The aforementioned library has wall-to-wall and floor-to-ceiling shelving, intricate carvings, and a built-in ladder. Large enough to fit a sofa, desk, long table, and multiple chairs, the reading room is an inspiring in-home getaway; there is also a sprawling art studio and a separate study.

The large kitchen with an island, double sinks, and stainless steel appliances opens up to a deck through a side door to take in panoramic views. There are four spacious bedrooms including the stunning, light-filled master suite with access to the gardens. Even the bathrooms are teeming with character in raw stone and minimalist palettes; you may never get out of your soaking tub looking out to the pool.

Feel like taking a stroll? Traverse the wooded grounds to explore the gazebo, raised garden, sculptures, and an epicf treehouse deck situated in a massive oak.
