The Space

(TOT # 1447N) The Enchanted Cottage is a gracious wine country getaway in Northern California. Minutes from the charming, gourmet paradise of Glen Ellen in Sonoma Valley, California. Just an hour from the Golden Gate bridge and San Francisco but a world away-- and out of the fog.
World class wineries, restaurants and activities within a five-minute radius of this peaceful estate. Breathtaking scenery in every direction. Popular hiking and biking destination. Heaven for children.
Why this property? My father lived in rural England for 10 years of his life after he retired. His and other homes in Somerset were casual but comfortable. As welcoming for people as for dogs, with a sort of "active relaxation" the norm. Room enough for gatherings, but plenty of odd spaces for solitude both inside and out. A large welcoming kitchen and outdoor seating, but places for reading or an afternoon nap. Space enough outside for children to roam (with a creek to wade in) but close enough to town for a quick trip to the store for milk or bread (or lighter fluid.) Of course in the wine country, we had to add a pool. Our house has worked for our family as a place that is distinct from our San Francisco city life but is civilized in its own way. After a day, the oaks and quiet work their magic and you can't help but unwind.
The house has two wings, 4 bedrooms and sleeps 8 people. Great for groups, but cozy enough for a few.
