About this listing
This beautiful one-story home built in 2008 features stunning details- a soaring 16 foot great room ceiling, acid stained concrete floors, marble and granite, crown molding, outdoor living with Endless Pool, firepit, and dining under the pergola.
The inviting open floor plan connects the cooks in the kitchen to your housemates in the living room
On the desirable Eastside, and only 5 short blocks to the historic Sonoma Plaza, this 2700 square foot custom home was designed by one of Sonoma's most noted architects and professionally landscaped. The antique Tunisian iron gate fronting the courtyard, leads to a dramatic greatroom with a soaring 16 foot vaulted ceiling. Once inside, guests are amazed with the quality and details of the interior design, from the acid stained concrete floors, and the entry columns, to the antiqued granite kitchen countertops. You will love cooking in the well appointed kitchen, with niceties like a pot filler over the 6 burner range top, instant hot water spigot (hot enough to make your tea), GE Monogram appliances, and double ovens.
Keep cool in the summer with full house air conditioning, or in the winter curl up in front of the fireplace in the spacious and elegant living room. Dine elegantly beneath the 16 light chandelier or have comfy viewing of the 36" flat screen television. And the outdoor living! The gas fire pit is complete with cozy blankets to cuddle up in, champagne glasses included. The stately pergola embraces the outdoor teak dining table. The outdoor kitchen gives you 2 grill options- a Big Green Egg (charcoal), or a gas grill. And if you're a swimmer, the Endless Pool invites you to swim against the current for a great workout. There is even an outdoor shower!
The oversized hall leading to the bedrooms is flanked with 3 sets of French doors, bringing light in from the outdoors. Both bedrooms are spacious and elegant with 10 foot ceilings, crown molding, ample closet space, and en suite baths, also with 10 foot ceilings. The queen beds are luxurious and comfortable, furnished with pure cotton, high thread count linens. The master bathroom features honed marble in the curb-less shower, a built in shower seat, a double vanity, and a separate water closet. The en-suite guest bathroom has a shower/tub combination and a pedestal sink.
If there are 6 of you, the sofa sleeper in the great room is a comfortable queen sized bed. The adjoining powder room/bathroom has a hidden marble shower and an oil rubbed bronze pedestal sink.
If there are 8 of you, the queen sized inflatable bed can be accommodated in the great room, or for more privacy, in the office.
30 day rentals include complimentary housekeeping and yard maintenance halfway through your stay with all utilities included.
The home and outdoor living are very private with mature trees hiding the neighboring houses.
Interaction with Guests
We are off premises, but emergency help is available.
The East Side neighborhood is one of the most desirable in Sonoma, and is great for walking, jogging, or biking. The 1.5 mile bike path is only 3 blocks away, leading from Sebastiani Winery, through Sonoma Historical State Park to Maxwell Farms Regional Park. Sonoma's grand Armstrong Estates is a half block away and is a lovely stroll past stately mansions.
Sonoma's best restaurants, wine tasting rooms, the historic Sebastiani Theater, and specialty shopping is a short walk away.
Other Things to Note
The house is accessible with no stairs, wide doorways, and grab bars in the toilets and showers. We designed it to be inclusive while still making it beautiful.
1) This is our home and we ask that you respect it as you would your own. No smoking in the house!
2) Quiet hours for outdoor activities start at 10:00 PM. This is a residential neighborhood and the neighbors are trying to sleep.
3) If you bring a dog please be a responsible pet owner. Pick up the poop. Prevent barking. Avoid pet damage.
4) Please park in the garage, driveway, or in front of the house when possible. The neighbors will appreciate it.
Design details abound, from the acid stained concrete floors to the soaring 16 foot tented ceiling with triple skylights
Jeanne & Chip were great hosts and their home is absolutely beautiful. I understand that due to unfortunate circumstances they are no longer renting their home but as hosts they were very accommodating.
Jeanne and Chip's rented their beautiful home to my six friends and I for a lovely weekend away in Sonoma. Unfortunately we did not get to meet them, but Jeanne and I communicated over email regarding a neighbor issue. I concluded that she was a very responsive, friendly, accommodating host and an overall delight! They have a beautiful kitchen, amazing outside patio area and pool area, and lovely furnished bedrooms - with great taste if I might add! Their home is in close proximity to the downtown Sonoma square where we enjoyed shopping and an amazing dinner. Again, I would highly recommend Jeanne and Chip's property for a relaxing weekend in Sonoma!
I rented Jeanne and Chip's beautiful home to celebrate my mom's retirement and it could not have been more perfect! We had the most luxurious, relaxing time hanging out at the fire pit, taking dips in the pool, cooking in the state of the art kitchen, and hanging out with each other and connecting. We had tickets to a weekend long music festival in Sonoma but we were so happy and content in the house we couldn't tear ourselves away from the fire pit to leave so we ditched the festival completely. Jeanne and Chip were such wonderful hosts and were so caring and welcoming and accommodating of us. We can't wait to go back :)
My friends and I stayed at Jeanne and Chip's home for a night. It is such a beautiful home! They were very accommodating and understanding. Every room was gorgeous, the kitchen was great to cook in and the outside fireplace was a great way to finish the night. I would love to stay at Jeanne and Chip's home again.
Jeanne and Chip are great people. We had the change to chat with them before leaving for the day!!
I would highly recommend this home and give Jeanne and Chip 5 stars as hosts!!
I highly recommend Jeanne and Chip's beautiful Sonoma home. As hosts, they were incredibly friendly, responsive and accommodating. We had seven people in our party and the sleeping situation worked out perfectly. It was especially nice having three full bathrooms! I will definitely rent the house again for future events in wine country.
Jeanne and Chip are incredibly gracious hosts, and their home is nothing short of magnificent. The entire home is beautifully appointed, and the icing on the cake was the beautiful outdoor living space. With an outdoor dining area, gas fire pit, endless pool, and outdoor shower, our family spent many hours enjoying the sun and each other! Thank you Jeanne and Chip for allowing us to stay in your fantastic home!
Beautiful home located a short walk from the square in downtown Sonoma. Driveway and ample, safe, street parking. House was in immaculate condition. Very charming lay out and excellent backyard for grilling, sitting fireside, or reading. Definitely recommend.
