This one-of-a-kind gated estate was given the distinction as “The Best Place for Rock Stars to Hang” in the Marin, Sonoma and Napa counties of California. And as you drive through the gates of this six-building private compound in the middle of the wine country, you’ll quickly see why.
This world renowned property is a private paradise situated 1,800 feet up Sonoma Mountain on approximately 8.5 acres suitable for horses or your own private vineyard. The compound includes the main house, two guest houses, nine fireplaces, nine bath rooms, four kitchens, a tennis court, pool and spa, separate theater and entertainment building, a world class recording studio and more.
The views are breathtaking. Far over the valley in the distance the ocean winks and waves with the sunset. All around you, soaring eagles, deer, giant Oaks and the misty canyons below, invite freedom of thought, spirit and creativity.
And yet you are as connected as you want to be.
The estate is only one hour north of San Francisco, 20 minutes from both private and public airports and minutes away from neighboring cities. You can visit the famous Sonoma and Napa vineyards that are all around you, or take a short scenic drive to Bodega Bay and Point Reyes beaches.
This world renowned estate has been featured on NBC national television, MTV Cribs and in 20 magazines worldwide including Luxury Living, Travel and Leisure, Robb Report, Estates West, Cigar Aficionado, Millionaire, Billboard and the cover of MIX Magazine. Sonoma Mountain Studio was recently awarded both Platinum and Gold Record Awards and has hosted guests, artists and producers from Japan, Germany, England, Greece, Sweden, Italy, Canada, Chile, Australia and the US.
Major remodeling and landscaping was completed over the last 18 months. The end result is a majestic, one-of-a-kind masterpiece.
