Kenwood Wine Country Retreat

822 Adobe Canyon Road, Kenwood CA

This handcrafted stone Kenwood wine country retreat has everything you could ask for in an idyllic retreat or vacation property.  The home itself is 4000 square feet including 4 bedrooms/4 bathrooms and has a 1/1 detached guest cottage with its own full kitchen.  Initially built in the early 1940s the 1 foot thick native stone walls provide luxurious, natural air-conditioning allowing you to throw the windows open wide all day / every day in the summer heat while staying comfortable within.  Completely remodeled back to the studs/stone in 2000, the old world finishes and large spaces are complemented with state of the art conveniences.

The flooring is a rich mix of carved limestone and reclaimed douglas fir hardwood. The Great-Room/Kitchen has 15 foot vaulted ceilings and a massive stone, wood-burning fireplace & hearth that anchors the room; a truly memorable gathering place straight out of the days of yore when stone lodges had oversized fireplaces dominating the center of the household.  The kitchen is professionally appointed with 2 islands, 2 dishwashers, 2 sinks, adjoining pantry and room for 3 to cook simultaneously at the Viking range.  A unique culinary focal point, part of one vast great room measuring over 1000 square feet with splendid views to the peaks of Sugar Loaf State Park.  In the middle of this special room, a 14 foot, 19th century French wine bar affords temperature controlled refrigeration for optimal wine tasting. When temperatures drop, there is radiant heat (under the limestone flooring) so one is more than comfortable in the high-ceiling, main floor spaces.  Available on the main floor is a library/living room (a legal bedroom with attached private bath) featuring an original stone fireplace, a 2nd bedroom with bath that overlooks the properties manicured grounds and pool, as well as a large media/theatre room.

The pool is chemical free and measures 12 foot by 50 foot; perfect for swimming laps or just enjoying the luxurious cool water during those lazy hot summer months.  The outdoor splendor merges with the indoors as all the front-facing windows on both levels bifold back letting in all the splendor of rural Sonoma County.

The upstairs features the Master Suite with view picture windows opening to a wrap-around front deck looking down on the pool and lounge area and across the valley to forested ridges.  There is a 4th bedroom with ensuite bath upstairs with the same views as the master.  All 5 bedrooms between the main and guest house are spacious, ensuite with their own full baths affording gracious comfort and privacy to the owners as well as all family and guests visiting this one-of-a-kind wine country property.

The grounds are luxuriously landscaped and designed to be equally attractive and low maintenance.  The pool area is surrounded by numerous lounging options: chaises, vast couches, a day bed and a stone patio with outdoor dining just off the great-room and kitchen.  Adjacent to the pool lounge area is another part of the grounds dedicated to socializing and entertaining centered by a large fire pit encircled by a conversational outdoor seating, a stainless-steel barbecue, an 8-person hot tub/spa and Bocce’ Ball court all wrapped by 150’ tall fir trees.

Above the entertaining area is a meandering trail that leads to the private detached cottage which is fully equipped with its own kitchen and large bath.  This delightfully private guest unit with virgin redwood ceilings is tastefully decorated with the same level of comfort that the rest of the property offers.

Upon arriving at this property, you will find it privately gated with high perimeter fencing ensuring both privacy and respite throughout its grounds.  Beyond the entry gate is a large parking area with room for 6 or more cars off street and protected.  There is an additional 3-car on street parking area dedicated to this property as well.

Just across on the opposite side of Adobe Canyon is a year-round creek with wonderful little falls and pools all along its meandering path traversing the canyon floor. In the Winter you clearly hear the sound of roaring water.  Up the street and within walking distance are a network of hiking trails crisscrossing, Sugarloaf State Park.  Sugarloaf also offers a variety of events such as music under the stars, camping, star gazing, horseback riding, and much more.  Please click the links provided below for Sugar Loaf State Park and the surrounding area to explore all this area of Sonoma County has to offer.

This property is in Kenwood, the very center of the Sonoma Valley and the Northern California Wine Country.  From here you can readily explore Sonoma’s historic plaza, Glen Ellen’s gourmet restaurants, Kenwood’s tasting rooms, all the amenities that Santa Rosa has to offer and the charm, culture and cuisine that is Healdsburg.

Beginning back in 2006 this home has been a very successful vacation rental which grosses about $300,000 per year.  With staff managing it for the current owner it nets over $165,000 per year.  Links to it’s VRBO and AirBnB listings are provided below.
