Perfectly sited in a flat, 2-acre vineyard, tucked away down a private lane, dwell in this Mediterranean farmhouse surrounded by olive groves, pool, and gardens - yet be just 1.5 miles from Sonoma's historic plaza and a short stroll to Bartholomew Park.

Inspired by the bastides of France and rural villas of the Veneto, this architect-designed, stucco, Mediterranean farmhouse epitomizes agrian life in Sonoma. Approaching along its long, private, driveway, you'll know you've arrived when you hear the crunch of the gravel courtyard and view the vineyards before you, nestled against a sublime, hillside meadow with the Mayacamas hills as the back-drop. There is an expanse to this pastoral landscape because neighboring estates of 5 to 25 acres have created a nearly blank palette of private open space and nothing impedes the views up to the distant ridge-line. The two-story home is part of a mini-compound oriented around a classic courtyard that encircles a bosque of native Sycamores. Out the rear door to the north lie the lawn, gardens, pool, olive grove, and chardonnay vineyard.

As frequently seen in southern France, the house rises three steps above grade in order to see out above the vineyard. This, along with 10' foot ceilings serve to capture Sonoma's incredible sunlight. Floor to ceiling French doors and windows bring the outdoors in, while symmetrical, adjacent, pergolas, enshrined by vines, create covered outdoor-spaces for alfresco dining.

The grounds:
The gardens and pool are perfect places for the whole family and or for couples vacationing together to hang out. The landscape design creates a series of outdoor rooms with low rock walls for sitting and contemplation--each with their own qualities.

The kitchen garden to the home's east is a par-terre of sage and herbs, and a fountain where a myriad of blue birds and finches drink and bath. Off of the lawn, beneath the dappled canopy of olives is another dining and candle-lit sitting area where food can be prepared on the gas-fired, stone outdoor grill. Pre-cast stepping stones lead to of a 12' by 50' long pool that is set into the vineyard and is surrounded by tall grasses, butterfly bushes, and vine-covered lattice walls. (The pool has a key-controlled, automated cover, and no fence.) Relax with loved ones and friends on the pool deck which offers private sun bathing and, later on, the perfect place for viewing a million stars overhead while scenting the waft of scents that float from night blooming jasmine and nicotiana.

Mini-compound: There are two detached buildings that share the central courtyard with the house, where guests stay. They are a studio and a cottage. Landscaping provides some privacy between the buildings. The house orients to the north lawn, pool, olives, and vineyard, while the cottage and studio orient toward the gravel drive. The owners, a couple, live in the cottage and work in the studio. As described below, we take our cues from guests, and for those guests who prefer to be left alone, we seek to provide them privacy in their use of the gardens, olive grove, al fresco dining and the pool.

Outdoor furniture includes: A glass table with French-café style chairs and teak garden chairs and bench under the pergola east of the house. Two Restoration Hardware Carmel dining tables, one with an umbrella over head, and chairs and two Restoration Hardware cushioned love seats and coffee table under the olive trees. The pool has one Restoration Hardware Carmel outdoor day bed, two chaise lounges and side tables and one umbrella. There is a stone outdoor cooking area that includes a gas-plumbed grill, intended for cooking on mesquite or oak.

The Sounds and micro-climate:
The romance of rustling poplar trees break the breeze and create a quiet, indulging and warm micro-climate. The coo of dove and distinctive call of California quail are a constant backdrop.

The house:
Enter the classic foyer and to your left is the gracious living room with walls adorned by original works from one of Sonoma's beloved artists, a wood-burning fireplace and piano. (apple t.v.) To the right is the dining room/kitchen and half bath. The entry foyer, kitchen and half bath floors are covered in slate. The dining and living floors are bleached oak covered with area rugs.

As you know, Sonoma offers some of the freshest produce in the Bay Area and the philosophy behind the kitchen is to partake daily in the pleasures of our local farm stands located just up the bike path, at the historic plaza's farmer's markets ( a long 1.5-mile walk, easy bike ride, or drive away), or from our fantastic, boutique grocery stores. All kitchen appliances are new as of June 2015. The kitchen is equipped with:
• Custom Caesar stone pass-through and maple countertops
• 6 burner Viking gas range
• LG refrigerator and freezer
• Kitchenaid oven
• Kitchenaid dishwasher
• Stainless steel farm sink
• De Longhi cappuccino machine
• Kitchenaid toaster and toaster oven
• Microwave
• Bose speakers for plugging in music from a guest's computer or cellular phone. (Blue tooth equipped)

The bedrooms are designed to have spectacular views down to the vineyards and out to the hills. The master bedroom is equipped with a king size mattress and wood burning fireplace. The master bathroom has two sinks, bathtub, and a tiled vanity and shower.

There are two guest bedrooms that share a full bathroom. One bedroom has a double bed and the other has a king mattress, bed (two twin beds pushed together (European-style) with a 'topper' mattress. The bathroom has a pedestal sink and tiled bathtub/shower. Sisal carpet covers the stairway and bedroom floors.

• The home is well insulated and stays relatively cool in summer. There is no air conditioning. Side-table top fans are in each bedroom. Larger fans in the foyer closets up and downstairs.
• Pool Heating: The pool temperature is 83 degrees 3' below the surface as of July 24, 2015. The pool is heated by passive solar. There's no pool heater. Generally the water temperature in summer is very pleasant due to it's two shallow ends and 7.5' depth in the middle and narrow width.

Our backgrounds in landscape architecture and architecture, and interests in sustainable agriculture—viticulture and olive culture, gardens, cooking and dining outdoors is evident on this property. We have traveled all over the world but we can honestly say that Sonoma is one of our favorite places on earth. The unique property offers tranquility and privacy, yet is so close to great wineries and the Sonoma Plaza. We love our area and have a wealth of information about great places to visit and things to do.

We strive to deliver as much or as little interaction as the Guests desire. We enjoy meeting guests and sharing our local knowledge, but also understand that they might want to be on their own, so we are flexible. If we are traveling, a friend or care-taker will generally greet Guests. The guest cottage is where we live when we are in Sonoma and the property is a working farm. The vineyards, olives, and gardens need to be cultivated. Guests may see some gardening, vineyard, and pool maintenance being performed by workers, or owners. The House, detached Studio, and detached Cottage all share and face the center, circular courtyard. Landscaping and trees provide some screens between buildings. If guests prefer to be left alone, we will cater to these wishes and give them a wide berth with regard to the olive grove, al fresco dining and the pool.
