Gravenstein Orchard Ranch.
Welcome to your home away from home. Native, verdant gardens and an enviable location in the heart of wine country, The Gravenstein Orchard& Ranch is a three bedroom, two bath home offering a delightful compound full of life’s most coveted pleasures.
This light-filled country home is set on an inviting 7 acre oasis where guests can experience the best of Sonoma County and the great outdoors. Located just minutes from the finest Sonoma Valley wineries, guests can discover the delights of Chateau St. Jean, St. Francis, Landmark, Kaz, and a collection of boutique wineries: VJB Cellars, Deerfield Ranch, Kenwood, Ledsen and Kunde (cave tours). All within 3 miles. Adjoining Annadel State park, and within easy drives to Sugar Loaf Ridge and Jack London State Parks, this is an ideal location for hiking, biking, and relaxation.
Many amenities await you at this country estate. Enjoy the heated pool and hot tub with a carnival of outdoor umbrellas to shade and brighten your poolside reverie. Or watch the festivities from the wrap-around porch with cozy furniture and a deep, inviting hammock. Outdoor dining is a breeze to be served al fresco on the café table and chairs overlooking the garden and pool.
Children will enjoy the shaded lawn with wooden play structure and adults in need of downtime can cocoon themselves in the poolside wicker cabana.
For more lively entertainment, there is an ode to the “rumpus room” of yester-year: The game room has both a ping pong and pool table for hours of delight.
Upstairs in the main house, a true library displays bookshelves – floor to ceiling – with interesting reads in the home’s great room. This spacious gathering area has a fire place, an antique rocking chair and other luxurious touches of gracious living to help ease you into the holiday mode of pleasure and relaxation.
The kitchen area is a friendly anchor to the main living space. Cooking and entertaining are a seamless endeavor. There is casual counter seating as well as dining for 8 in this brightly lit kitchen.
The expansive master suite is light-filled with a dramatic roofline. It is equipped with a king-sized bed, an elegant chaise lounge, cozy armchairs for reading, and doors leading to a hot tub with the magical woods beyond. The ensuite bath has a custom tiled shower and vanity easily large enough for two.
Two additional bedrooms, one with a queen bed, the other with two full beds, are charming accommodations with lovely windows, armchairs and a welcoming country ambiance.
You will feel miles from it all, enveloped by old-growth trees and lush vegetation, yet you are perfectly placed in the heart of Sonoma’s wine country, with world class hiking, biking and ready to enjoy all that the area has to offer!
