A Stunner in Healdsburg

April 16, 2010

A very happy Home Tour Friday to you!

Today we’re going to see an unbelievable home with vistas that will take your breath away.

And we’re heading to the mecca of wine country – Healdsburg – located in lush Sonoma County, California.

This home is set high above the Russian River with sweeping mountain and valley views.

Gorgeous!  Wish you were here.

I just heard you draw in your breath all the way from here.

(I did too.)

As you ascend up the mountain, these gates signify that something great is in store.

The fountain just cements the fact.

As you approach the front door, the varying levels of raised beds create a sense of abundance and elegance.  Plus, all that lavender smells heavenly.

This green-built home features a solar-powered hot-water heating system both for the home and the pool as well as a solar-powered electric system.  And the utility bills reflect this!

I just love, love, love this garage and resulting courtyard!  That’s an art studio above the garage.

Another view of the home with it’s beautiful surrounding vegetation.   This home was recently completed and notice how mature the plantings already are.

Now just get me a cold drink and leave me here forever.


Many thanks to Jon Stoumen, Architect LEED AP of Palo Alto for this breathtaking home tour.  Visit his website at:

Have a great weekend!
