Click for Estate Photo TourThe main house, of the five buildings on this private nine-acre estate, was originally built as an exact replica of a 1760’s colonial saltbox. To the detail. Wide pine floors. Hand-hewn beams. Seven fireplaces. Hand blown glass. Hardware and fixtures hammered by blacksmiths in New England.

Yes. And it seems like New England smack in the middle of the Northern California wine country. And it works. Even on the outside looking in through the front gates, you’d swear you’re looking back to yesteryear somewhere in who knows where Connecticut.

The three-story main house has 12 rooms, seven fireplaces, five bathrooms and a secret room we don’t expect you to find. There are four suites, each with a fireplace and private bathroom. An intimate den suitable for sipping fine cognac or reading from a full library of over 100 classics. A piano parlor that triples for relaxing, wine tasting and unplugged jams. A dining room with a table that seats 12 and a fireplace tall enough to stand in. The third floor, completely paneled in pine, is wide open except for the train that runs around the perimeter. Use it as you [choo] choose.

Did we mention a whole lot of charm? Darn cute. And there’s a garden cottage with all of the above except it’s in another place. Wouldn’t you know it. It’s at the back of the property next to the vegetable garden and green house.

Did we mention a tennis court with a ball machine and all the accoutrements. A spa. A two-story tree house. Gazebo. Gardens galore. Then there’s a separate building with a gym. A theater with a library of over 150 DVD movies. Or call it a pool hall. A game room. A great place to hang.

And of course, we already mentioned the recording studio disguised as a New England horse barn situated on the front acreage across the private road.

Sure we’re flattered that this estate has been featured in several publications. A winner of landscape and gardening design awards across Napa, Sonoma and Marin counties.

Seeing is believing. You have good taste, so you be the judge. But fair warning. If you come to Sonoma Mountain Studio Estate, you won’t want to leave.
