Enchanting farmhouse and vineyard in the heart of wine country’s Russian River Valley. Includes a remodeled 1920's era Queen Ann house, a swimming pool and a pool house on 3.2 acres. Extensive gardens, and a biodynamic vineyard that has achieved a top Robert Parker rating through its vineyard-designated grapes. An idyllic turnkey property, it includes every detail. Surrounded by world-class vineyards, this estate rests on a sunny knoll facing southwest and overlooking the picturesque Green Valley, a Russian River sub-appellation of west Sonoma County. It is located between the rural towns of Graton and Forestville and is surrounded by some of the world’s most celebrated wineries. From San Francisco, the drive is approximately one hour and thirty-five minutes northwest of the Golden Gate Bridge.
A private gate introduces this breathtaking property, opening to the thriving vineyard and an array of mature trees, shrubs, and other flora. At the bottom of the drive is the recently renovated farmhouse, which blends modern amenities with stylish spaces for living and entertaining. The 60-foot solar-heated lap pool has sweeping westward views across vineyards and is accompanied by a therapeutic whirlpool tub and a cozy pool house.
Knowlton Farms produces 1.3 acres of sustainably farmed high quality chardonnay grapes, in mostly gold ridge soil. The soil is a sandy loam dirt with excellent soil drainage and is exquisitely balanced for the 101-14 Wenty Chardonnay grapes from the Reud clone.
