Property description
Imagine your own Mediterranean Villa, complete with a gorgeous pool surrounded by some of the most serene, luscious landscape and pure natural beauty to be found in Sonoma Valley. Romantic, evocative, playful, serene and exceedingly private. Over two miles of hand-crafted walking trails with beautiful rock walls allows one to experience the beauty of the land, as though time stood still. The villa sits into the land as though it was always there, yet it was designed and built in 2006 by famed local architect Richard Beard, while working with BAR Architects. Named after the owner's childhood home in South America, Rancho Mineiro is both intimate and generous in scale with impeccable design. A sun-drenched guest cottage/pool house that functions as both a stand-alone guest quarters complete with full bath can serve as a spacious home office, which is how the owners currently enjoy it. The breezy indoor to outdoor flow, and sun-drenched pool rivals any romantic resort in Europe. The property also houses a rustic red barn with humble living quarters, stables, a welcoming pond, a hand-built stone chapel, a rose garden and a fruit orchard. And if that weren't enough, there is an all year round creek with steelhead that feeds into Carriger Creek. The villa allows for unforgettable entertaining moments, with its' grand 15-foot ceilings, stained concrete floors, hand-troweled plaster walls and three sets of magnificent custom arched steel doors that open to the pool with views to the east and Mt. Diablo in the distance. In the winter, the oversized stone fireplace is a lovely gathering spot for 2 or 20. Words and photos cannot capture the beauty and the incredible attention to detail that went into the development of the land and the beauty of the villa. The sellers lived on the property for 8 years while imagining, designing and curating items for the property from around the world. From the Balinese front doors, to the magnificent great room chandeliers shipped from a flea market in Buenos Aires, to the bespoke kitchen worthy of any chef or caterer, this is truly a one of a kind property, built with great taste and an abundance of care. All of this, less than one hour from San Francisco and just a few minutes to the historic plaza in downtown Sonoma.Spending time at the property one has a sense that the villa belongs to the land and there is palpable reverence for the land itself. Even the old road on the property that General Vallejo used to travel to Petaluma has a sense of timeworn history to it. This 50± acre wine country property is one that you must savor and experience with all of your senses. Call for a private showing.
