More Than JUST the View…
You’ll love the expansive, almost panoramic views from this sunny, oak-studded estate in beautiful Bennett Valley. Even more extraordinary, this 35 acre +/- property is zoned for two full sized homes plus a granny unit and guest house. OR… it can be split into two separate parcels. Either way, in addition to the very handsome Monterey style adobe home, with over 3,440 square feet +/-, you can still build another dream home on the knoll top if you wish.
The current home has a great, country casual feel to it and is designed for easy indoor-outdoor living. This spacious house has 3 bedrooms plus an office and den/play area plus galleried landing upstairs to give lots of room for you and your guests to enjoy. Big bedrooms, tons of closet space, pantry and super storage make for a winning combination.
The sunny, remodeled kitchen has a pretty granite island, stainless steel appliances and open views of the pool and entertainment decks. A casual dining area opens up to a comfortable family room with built in library. On to the formal dining room with lovely wide plank wood floors and room for a banquet table!
Wood paneled ceilings and hand plastered walls give this home a hearty hacienda feel. The upstairs landing is flooded with light from clerestory windows and French doors to the balcony. The master suite is also spacious with an en suite marble bathroom, and offers separate tub and shower.
Several great entertainment decks made out of low maintenance Trex material spill down to a patio area surrounding the inground pool. Plenty of space for an outdoor kitchen if you wish, this area has room to host the largest of celebrations!
For the car enthusiast, we have the perfect set up: a two car garage with extra storage attached to the home, plus a second garage with room for 8 more cars! For the aspiring gardener or farmer, check out the 100 year old barn, greenhouse and grounds which boast a plethora of fruit trees.
For the equestrian, there is a field shelter with horse stall in a large paddock with several other fenced pastures and plenty of room for a barn and arena if desired. The property is just down the road from the entrance to Sonoma Mountain Regional Park which is newly open and boasts lovely hiking and riding trails. This park is part of the Bay Area Ridge Trail network and will soon link into both Jack London State Park and Mount Taylor Regional Park to provide many miles of hiking or equestrian trail access, much of which is also available for mountain biking. Truly an outdoor paradise in the middle of wine country.
Bennett Valley is well known for its excellent climate and viticulture and it may well be possible to plant a vineyard on this property, if desired. Syrah, Cabernet, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay all thrive here, in addition to other varietals. Water is abundant with excellent well production and Matanzas Creek frontage on two sides of the property.
