BELLA VISTA ... Sonoma. 4 large bedrooms, 4 full baths custom-built luxury estate property with 5400 sf on 3.5 acres overlooking a panoramic view of the Sonoma Valley and beyond. The many windows and French doors bathe its two-story interior in constant light.

With its extensive outdoor entertainment area, exudes casual sophistication and surrounds you with wine country comfort and elegance inside and out. In this coveted locale, Bella Vista was built with thoughtfulness and meticulous care for its surroundings.


This spacious two-story residence is tucked away in a private gated estate community at an elevation of 1000 feet. While secluded, it has the distinct advantage of being located about ten minutes away from the historic downtown Sonoma, top-notch dining, shopping, art galleries, wineries and wine tasting. Yet the winding country road that reaches up to it, passing by woods, vineyards and chaparral-clad hillsides, makes it seem more remote than it really is.


This beautiful estate with its lavish landscaping and fantastic vistas offers an unending array of experiences. It starts with the winding driveway leading to the circular entry way with amble parking. The property’s landscaping is archetypically diverse with oak, bay, olive, palm trees, oleander and other flowering bushes, fruit trees, flowerbeds and grape vines growing profusely around the houses and on the terraces that bracket them. The view is one of Wine Country’s grandest, sweeping miles across eastern Sonoma Valley to San Pablo Bay.

The outdoor upper patio with its custom Brazilian hardwood deck includes, a rock faced, granite topped, built in kitchen with a large Viking barbecue, gas stove top, refrigerator, sink, and built-in icebox with speed rail. A large oak tree with an outdoor heater shelters the kitchen, granite dining table and bar area for extra comfort. Enjoying the never-ending vistas that makes outdoor dining a true delight.

Just below the upper patio and next to the hot tub you will find a large stone wood-burning fireplace with ample seating. A near-by hot tub overflows into the waterfall that gently flows to the custom built swimming pool. Both are solar heated in the summer and average temperature of 82–90°. A outside shower and separate sun deck adds to your sunning comfort.

You'll enjoy Bella Vista's quietly gliding hawks that are common visitors here, as well as small woodland creatures. At night, when Sonoma Town’s gem-like lights seem to dance atop the evening breeze, this makes for a marvelous dinner and party spot.

The views are simply breathtaking! Whether outdoor recreation, soothing relaxation in the sun, pool or spa, or the elegance of a special celebration, Bella Vista is a place to create lifetime memories.
