The Bungalow Twins - Sonoma County

  
 

What we love about The Bungalow Twins

A designer’s dream, this two-bungalow suite is centered around a sleek and shimmering swimming pool, a textured expanse of xeriscape gardens and shady heritage Oaks, all connecting the two separate homes for central gathering. Architecturally conceived to maximize indoor/outdoor living in Sonoma’s lovely wine country climate, this open-plan estate also maximizes a dynamic social experience for guests of The Bungalows!

The Bungalows are a chic and stylish sanctuary perched up a private road, each with unique touches but similar in design and amenities. Much of the entertaining will likely be shared and take place under the steel-beam and wood-framed outdoor living area. This minimalist and elegant space houses a full living room suite, formal dining for 12 and complete set of outdoor dinner wear in a modern metal hutch. Warmed by infrared heaters, this open air pavilion is welcoming throughout the year.

Bungalow 1
With a wall of glass panel doors, this bungalow opens directly to the Pavilion. A fully-equipped chef’s kitchen with island seating looks onto the living area with a gas fireplace and rustic, wood tiled wall. A Thermador gas range and industrial grade appliances make cooking a dream. High ceilings, recessed lighting and skylights brighten this space while honey-colored wood floors add warmth. A large flat screen TV and bookshelves (stocked with original screenplays!) offer entertainment options within the serene layout.

The master suite with Queen bed enjoys a private, covered patio with forest views. There is a stall shower and deep soaking tub overlooking the countryside in the exquisitely tiled master bath. Separated by sliding barn doors, space is maximized to create a generous bath with dual vanities. There is an American Leather Queen sofa bed in the living area.

Bungalow 2
Separated by concrete walkways and tall dry grasses shaded by oak and manzanita, Bungalow 2 is another study in modern, rustic design with wide plank wood floors, white walls and sleek modern furniture. Top-sliding barn doors and pitched ceilings add to the spacious feel in the living/kitchen area. A butcher-block center island offers casual dining for 4. There is a Bosch gas stove top, retro-style refrigerator and top-grade stainless steel dishwasher, and the kitchen is fully stocked for cooking! (Note: There is no oven in Bungalow 2.)

The master bedroom has a queen bed and private door to the spacious bathroom. A floating dual vanity and the large walk-in shower add to the clean, spa-like ambiance of the bath.

There is a large, flat screen TV and American Leather Queen sofa bed in the living area. A generous, covered porch with seating provides a warm welcome for guests or a place to enjoy wine country evenings and views of the Mayacama mountains.
