Exquisite modern Sonoma vineyard home. Exclusive wine club member experience.

The home is a beautiful modern farmhouse located on a boutique vineyard on the East Side of the city of Sonoma in Carneros/ Sonoma Valley wine country. This is the ideal luxury wine country property for those looking for an ultra high-end modern aesthetic and a resort-like feel all to their own. It has a beautiful pool and heated spa with views of our vineyard. The property has business class Internet and a Peloton bike for those who wish to stay connected. The house is provided immaculately clean by trained staff. Sweeping vineyard views and wine country fresh air. Luxury quality furnishing. This is the perfect place to retreat.

The house has four bedrooms and 4 ½ modern remodeled baths, as well as a separate outdoor heated shower. The large, modern well-appointed chef’s kitchen is center stage downstairs along with a large dining room table that comfortably seats 10.

As seen on CNN’s “One Square Meter” – “Sipping in Sonoma”, French TV’s Echappelles Belles in Sonoma and San Francisco (begin at minute 19:40 on the video), Netflix’s Chef’s Table (Dominique Crenn), and Total Bellas (Season 2, Episode 5). The home has the quality of the finest resorts.

The garden and pool grounds were designed by a renowned landscape architect and offer breathtaking views with a 50′ solar heated pool, heated spa and manicured lawn and garden.

The home is luxurious and sleek with resort-like furnishings and comfort.

NOTE about bookings: 7 night minimum during the high season and holiday. We’re open to a multi-month lease for a discount off the stated rates.

The property is on a popular biking and sightseeing route and is about 4 miles to the Sonoma square. We are in the midst of the Carneros AVA wine region. We are a licensed winery and our award winning artisan crafted Chardonnay, estate grown Cabernet Sauvignon/ red blend and Pinot Noir wines are produced in nearby in Napa. Numerous other notable wineries are less than 2 miles away. Guests also appreciate the proximity to Napa.

There are two separate living rooms, including a media room with a large flat screen smart TV.

The home is more than 3400+ feet on two levels and feels like a larger space because of its vaulted ceilings and expansive views. There is an upstairs and downstairs master bedroom, both of which have generous, en suite bathrooms. There are two additional bedrooms (one with queen bed and the other with two twin beds that can be made into a king bed, if prearranged) and two separate full bathrooms.

A modern, clean aesthetic was our goal in renovating the property. The house has abundant light with large sweeping doors and windows. There are a number of interesting design features, including wood floors made from reclaimed Eucalyptus trees from the Presidio in San Francisco and dining room tables made from 1920s reclaimed cedar from the Cal Berkeley stadium. We have the first permitted gray water irrigation system in Sonoma valley and recently replanted additional Cabernet Sauvignon vines, as well as a new planting of Chardonnay vines. We provide ecologically friendly soap, shampoo and conditioners in the bathrooms, as well as hair dryers. You’ll find spices in the kitchen, as well as other basic necessities you should expect from a high end property.

The farmhouse is available for small groups of up to 8 people who wish to enjoy wine country in a more intimate setting than high-end luxury resorts. Sorry, we can not permit weddings, parties or other types of events at the home.

We grow Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay vines. This is an exclusive vineyard experience provided to our wine club members and you’ll receive a case of wine as part of your registration (if you are not already a wine club member). We’ll provide a mixed case of our estate grown Cabernet Sauvignon red wine blend, as well as our Chardonnay and Pinot Noir vintages. We have a property concierge service through our property manager who can arrange options during your trip.

Like many vineyards, the property is graced by a barn cat. Ours was named Orangey by a guest because of his orange tabby color and the name fits perfectly. Orangey has become the property ambassador who you will see relaxing in the gardens and by the pool. We ask guests to put out food for him (provided by us) when the vineyard staff are not around.

You will have a concierge point of contact by text who can assist with any questions. We provide a house manual on the use of its amenities, as well as recommendations on local activities. We hope you enjoy your exclusive visit to Sonoma wine country!

Guest review: “Our stay at Carole’s house was lovely. It was perfect for a family vacation – big enough with plenty of space to lounge around together. The location was really convenient and great for biking. Carole gave great information on her favorite bike route and we took advantage of biking as much as possible. Overall, we had a fantastic stay.”

Guest review: “This property was stunning, superbly decorated and incredibly clean. It’s close to downtown Napa and only a few minutes away from restaurants and nightlife. My husband had a great time here and felt very safe! I would love to come back in the spring or summer to take advantage of the cute outdoor areas and upstairs balcony (as it was pretty cold during our stay). We absolutely loved it!”

Guest review: “My group of eight friends recent stay in Napa was definitely enhanced by our rental of Bellisima.

The house has a great layout and is beautifully equipped and furnished with all the essentials. Especially the kitchen which had everything we needed for cooking several breakfasts and a dinner/BBQ we cooked in one night. The house also includes several locations for dining, both indoor and out.

The compound also comes with amenities that made our stay even more enjoyable. They include a pool, hot tub, tennis court and golf area which has a putting green and chipping area.

The location was also perfect, as it is situated on a quiet street just a few miles from downtown St. Helena. This allows for a quick drive or a long walk into town, where a lot of restaurants and shops are located.

We were also within walking distance of several great wineries, including Hall, Grgich Hills and Flora Springs.

I highly recommend staying at this spot when visiting Napa.”
