The seductive beauty of the Russian River Valley is the perfect setting for this exquisite Palladian style country home. A modern villa with neoclassical design inspired by elements of balance and bold scale, presents a unique and romantic retreat where style and soul blend harmoniously. This compelling residential estate, designed by Tichenor & Thorp of Beverly Hills, was completed in 2006 with subsequent upgrades and interior renovation done over the last few years. Custom forged iron entry doors set the stage for the unique level of quality and detail throughout. Stunning wide plank floors of reclaimed 19th Century American white oak, expertly hand scraped and pegged on site; impressive 8' interior doors with premium hardware and 13' ceilings featuring boldly scaled moldings. Floor to ceiling windows frame unparalleled views of the Russian River, vineyards and watershed forests below. A dramatic loggia and expansive outdoor terrace is an enchanting place for morning coffee or alfresco dining. A welcoming pavilion-style guest studio compliments the architectural styling of the main residence and features an open floor plan with abundant natural light and a wood-burning fireplace with custom limestone mantel, kitchen with island, laundry and full bath. The tall 12' ceilings provide volume with transom windows and French doors span the south view and open onto lush lawn and stunning views. This tranquil and secluded environment is situated on approximately 26.5 acres at an elevation of approximately 300' perched along a ridge line that enhanced by inspirational views, garden pathways, massive oaks, olive orchards and approximately 2.5 acres of Pinot Noir vineyards. There are two secure gated entrances to access the property along Westside Rd., an east gate provides access for service vehicles and the discreet main entrance on the western edge of the property provides a beautiful approach to the estate that winds through vineyard rows and alongside olive orchards as it climbs the ridge above the Russian River. Rural, but not remote and conveniently located within 20 minutes from the vibrant town of Healdsburg, the estate is located at the heart of this diverse wine country region and only 65 miles north from San Francisco. Situated in the Russian River AVA and minutes from the Sonoma County Airport, residents of this area are attracted to the local amenities associated with the region, including bicycling, hiking, proximity to the world-class Mayacama Golf Club, Lake Sonoma, wineries and highly acclaimed restaurants and shopping.
