About our home

New designer home overlooking our private three acre lake on the western edge of California's famous wine country. Western Sonoma County is famous for great cycling, beautiful rugged beaches (15min to the beach) and wonderful wildlife. Our 20 acre estate includes a 3 acre deep lake, fed by several beautiful creeks, great for fishing and kayaking. We have many trails to explore and some ancient redwood groves, which support diverse wildlife and birds.

Our sustainable house, completed in 2010, is a paradigm of simple, modern Californian design. An artistic blend of bamboo, glass and metal, we strived to create a house where attention to detail and design were balanced with comfort and live-ability. While not great in size (110sqm) it provides the ultimate in open air design, with a window wall which opens the entire living space to the outdoors. We live here with our two young sons, who enjoy many outdoor activities. Surfing is great at a few local beaches, however the water is cold, so wetsuits are a must. We also have a great hot-tub/spa which is relaxing during cool and starry Northern California nights.

San Francisco is an only hour away by car and for food and wine lovers; many of Napa & Sonoma's best wineries, farm-to-table restaurants and attraction are but a short drive away. Great local seafood as well due to being so close to the coast.
