This emblematic vineyard house is nestled into the grapes of Alexander Valley, one of the most spectacular locales in all of Sonoma County. Located at the end of a private road just north of Sonoma, Alexander Valley Ranch is the perfect setting for those looking to explore the extraordinary wines, world-class restaurants and idyllic natural beauty of this region. Sweeping views of Cabernet grapes and the majestic Mayacama mountains grace you from every corner of this peaceful retreat; set on a slight knoll, you are above the valley floor and are completely surrounded by gardens, fruit orchards and vineyards for as far as the eye can see. Built in a modern farmhouse style, Alexander Valley Ranch invites you to get cozy in its sun soaked great room, designed with high ceilings, an intimate sofa lounge,, along with a dining area accompanied by a large farmer’s wood table. Along the back of the house is a spacious, open-plan kitchen. Outfitted with modern Viking appliances, stone countertops and bar accessories, you can either use this space to have your own gourmet cooking gathering, or opt to have a personal chef do all of your cooking for you - sit back and focus on your wine tasting as they gather the best meat and produce from the local markets to come back and prepare a delicious meal for your group.
The sleeping quarters at Alexander Valley Ranch are just as welcoming as common rooms. On the ground floor you will find two of the guest bedrooms – the master suite boasts a king bed, marble and glass bathroom, plus panoramic views of the mountains and vineyards, while the second guest room has a queen bed and an adjacent bathroom with a claw-footed bathtub. Upstairs is an expansive loft or playroom that overlooks the living area and offers a queen bed for extra accommodation. Double doors open up the main house to the expansive outdoor patio and pool area, where across the way is the one bedroom guest house. Styled with country French furnishings, the guest house enjoys a media room, bathroom and sauna on the ground floor with a queen bedroom and charming kitchen overlooking the vineyards upstairs. The multi-tiered back area allows you to enjoy this villa’s quintessential California setting in the refreshing swimming pool, on a lounge chair under the sun or gathered round the alfresco dining table under the shade of an ancient oak.
Alexander Valley Ranch is ideally located to take advantage of all that Sonoma and Napa Counties have to offer. The Alexander Valley region is filled with top wineries and local charm: neighbors with the Stonestreet Winery, Medlock Ames Tasting Room and the historically quirky Jimtown store, you can effortlessly stroll for a morning coffee, a few artisan grocery items or a casual wine pairing from the front door of your villa. A short drive takes you to Healdsburg with its charming stores, and world class restaurants. Consider a stop in Geyserville at the new Francis Ford Coppola Winery + Restaurant where the famous director’s collection of his movie memorabilia is on display. Then play a game of bocce in the vineyards before you sit on the restaurant patio enjoying a special meal.
