What we love about this Sebastopol Sunrise Ridge Luxury Estate

Get off the well-trodden path and come explore western Sonoma County with a stay at the secluded Sunrise Ridge. Nestled into the Sebastopol hills, Sunrise Ridge treats you to panoramic views of Mount Saint Helena and expansive stretches of redwoods and vineyards. Designed by the renowned architect, Christopher Alexander, this villa is rooted in ancient traditions and building practices; from the rounded foyer with stained glass to the vaulted ceilings and impressive display of Burmese and Balinese artifacts, Sunrise Ridge greets you with a sense of awe and calm from the moment you enter. Spend your vacation days discovering the seven acres of botanical gardens and wild land, sharing cocktails in the open-air gazebo, swimming in the 25 foot pool and soaking in the hot tub after a day of hiking and picnicking along the Sonoma Coast. And it’s the perfect hideaway for multi-generational families or several couples travelling together! Comprised of five guest bedrooms and a guest house, Sunrise Ridge guarantees a spacious estate for your visit to California’s Russian River appellation area, otherwise known as Wine Country.

Good to Know

An art lover’s dream home, Sunrise Ridge is adorned with one-of-a-kind features everywhere you look. Using local and sustainable materials, this villa displays terrazzo counters with mother of pearl inlays, reclaimed teak wood flooring, precious Asian art and artifacts, and a whimsical, artisan glass mobile hanging above the kitchen. Nook and crannies are also designed into every corner of the house, providing plenty of spaces to cozy up with a book or take in the dramatic, hillside scenery. The property itself could keep you entertained for days — a botanical garden sanctuary is spread between the living spaces. Trusted caretakers also discretely reside within the seven acres of private land, should any maintenance needs or issues ever arise during your stay.

Eat, Drink & Play

Away from the crowds of the more populous wine country thoroughfares, Sunrise Ridge is settled amidst the serene Russian River Valley, a region best known for its Pinot Noirs. Adjacent to the villa is the 200 acre Torres Winery and Vineyard Estate, not to mention multiple hiking and biking trails that wind through this picturesque country setting. Located near to the hamlet of Occidental and Graton, you are never too far from world-class restaurants, artisanal shopping and renowned day spas. ‘Eat, drink & play’ destinations within easy reach of Sunrise Ridge include:
