Moondance - Sonoma County


What we love about Moondance

World travelers will feel right at home at Sonoma Valley’s Moondance Villa. Perched two miles above the town of Sonoma, this stunning four bedroom home will welcome you right in with its sweeping views over vineyards and rolling lavender fields all the way to the San Francisco Bay. Artefacts and collectables from the globe over embellish this custom home, adding an experienced touch to the thoughtful decor. Contemporary in every way, Moondance boasts tall ceilings, a gourmet kitchen and French doors that open the house to the outdoor patio. From here, you can sprawl out on the Chaize lounge chairs, take a dip in the infinity pool, or get together around the fire pit, all the while admiring the panorama views of Wine Country.

A floating staircase leads you from the ground floor up to the bedroom suites on the second level. Here reside two private guest bedrooms that share a bathroom, while the master suite lives just down the hallway in its own secluded quarters. This private space could be considered a flat in and of itself—from the repose of the curtain-clad, king-size bed to the fireplace living room and covered terrace with seating, the master suite encourages you to drift aimlessly between hangout nooks. If the views don’t render you speechless upon arrival, then the master bathroom surely will. His and hers bathrooms share a walk-in shower and tub, walk-in closets, outdoor access, and a vanity, stretching the width and length of another bedroom entirely. There is a room on the 3rd floor with a comfortable sleep sofa, 1/2 bath and fantastic views. With more sitting areas for a group of 10 than you’ll know what to do with, Moondance is a modern yet intimate home that invites you to settle in and experience the allure of Sonoma Valley.

Good to Know

The guest house that borders the driveway hosts two sumptuous bedrooms, each with their own private balcony and en-suite bathrooms. Well-suited for groups traveling with multiple families or teenagers, this separate sleeping area is only a few steps from the front door of the main house. Luckily, Moondance was positioned in such a way that it doesn’t matter where you choose to lounge, you will be blessed with the stunning valley views as your focal point. The landscape surrounding the home is well-manicured and blossoming with all sorts of natural life, including a kitchen garden where guests can pick herbs and seasonal veggies to cook with.

Per the homeowners insurance policy, children under 12 years old are not allowed at this property. No pets. Please note this property has a security camera that views the driveway, the entrance to the main house and the entrance to the guest house and includes audio. Your privacy is top priority and there are no security cameras inside the building, the pool deck or the outdoor dining area.

Eat, Drink & Play

Only a five minute drive from the restaurants, boutiques and wine tasting rooms of the historic Sonoma Plaza, Moondance offers the best of both city and country living. Dine out for a wonderful meal in town and be back at your villa in a matter of minutes for a night of stargazing. Whatever you’re looking to see and do in Wine Country, Moondance has you covered.
