The owners extensive collection of native art is on display everywhere: from hammered silver platters to colorful woven textiles and hand-painted pottery.
The home is designed around the patio and the view. The main living room (with fireplace and large TV), a small office/library, a guest room, laundry room and powder room are opposite the kitchen, which features a ceramic cooktop, two ovens, a built-in microwave and a a butcher block island.
On the other side of the dining area, there’s a second small sitting room with a fireplace, a hallway with a long loveseat, and two additional guest rooms. A bath with a stall shower is accessed via the hallway and guestroom two. The valley view master suite has a King bed, a TV in the armoire, a massage chair, and a private bath with two lav sinks, a soaking tub, and a walk in shower.
You’ll be spending considerable time outdoors, relaxing in a rocking chair, barbecuing, or dining al fresco. In the evening you can warm yourself by the wood-burning chiminea under a canopy of stars, absorbing the peace and contentment this area is noted for. And when you’re ready to leave this idyllic retreat, you’re less than five minutes away from fine restaurants and a plethora of excellent wineries and tasting rooms.
