The great room boasts 15-foot ceiling height which can and has accommodated large gatherings effortlessly. With a southern exposure, the house holds warmth and boasts natural light throughout the day bringing with it a powerful sense of home. The kitchen is nothing short of grand and has virtually all the amenities a modern chef could ask for. The pool house has a generous dressing and shower room as well as a fabulous office with tons of natural light overlooking the pond area, an area for yoga and a large sitting area. With good distance from the main residence lies a caretaker’s cottage if one would like full time support for the running of this estate. Stone walls have been constructed throughout the property to delineate between the wild and curated areas. While the ‘built’ environment of this property is very special, equally impressive is the pristine nature of the lands within which it sits. Low impact paths have been built to accommodate the enjoyment of the area which was previously inhabited by the native Indians of the area as they ‘summered’ on the banks of Carriger Creek. A portion of the historic trail to Petaluma used by General Vallejo when the area was wild is within the property boundaries.
