Been dreaming of moving up north and living off the land?
Fancy up your fantasy in one of two very stylish "guest houses" situated on nearly eight Sonoma acres blooming with old-growth oaks and manzanita trees as well as grapes on the award-winning Sentinel Oak Vineyard planted by viticulturist Carmine Indindoli.
While ample land and level parcels are available here for building a legit Wine Country estate, the pair of petite structures on the gated property are perfectly livable homes for normal people.
One small, contemporary house is constructed of glass and steel for indoor/outdoor vibes—think floor-to-ceiling windows and sliding glass doors. With custom fir cabinets and shelves and concrete floors, the open floor plan holds one bedroom, a wood-burning fireplace, and a sprawling chef's kitchen. An outdoor lounge area with a twinkling chandelier promises ambient alfresco cocktailing before meals on the dining terrace crowned with a canopy of grapevines. There's even a dedicated area for prep and storage outside.
Situated on the southwest corner of the property is a studio apartment with workshop space. A wall of glass floods the space with natural light, making for the perfect creative retreat. The workshop has plenty of cabinets and could be used for anything from an art studio to a brewing facility. A temperature-controlled wine storage room here offers housing for thousands of bottles, which is perfect since you've got pinot noir, zinfandel, and a field-blend claret growing right on the grounds.
The bucolic estate is located just a few minutes from Sonoma Plaza for when you're craving an urbane taste of town.
