Take a peek inside this spectacular Sonoma wine country farmhouse


This spectacular modern farmhouse was designed by Studio Bergtraun Architects, located in Northern California’s Sonoma wine country. The scope of this project entailed the main home with a central verandah, two guest houses, a pool house, a swimming pool, and a bocce court.

The architecture of this home remains true to the rural vernacular of the region while in keeping with the clean, modern lines. The structures are positioned to maximize the views, while the pool house and swimming pool are graded lower on the site, close to the living quarters yet not obstruct the stunning valley views.

What We Love: This Sonoma wine country farmhouse offers unparalleled views of the valley below courtesy of the fantastic indoor-outdoor connection. Gorgeous living spaces invites one to relax and unwind while enjoying the surrounding beauty. Guest cottages allow for this family to gather with loved ones yet have privacy from one another. We are especially loving the concept of communal gathering places such as the expansive great room and swimming pool.

Above: This house siding is stained Cedar and it meets the WUI minimum thickness of 1″ for fire resistance.


Above: The entry hall acts as a buffer between the main house guest suites and the public living spaces.


Above: In the living and dining areas, clerestory windows flood the space with natural light. On the ceiling, a pair of Jefferson Mack lighting fixtures help to define the space.


Above: The Sliding barn Doors can be closed or open to connect to the Kitchen on the left (of the dining room) and to the Bar area on the right. This also helps to transform the space from formal to informal as the doors are open or closed.


Above: In the kitchen, you will find classic white marble countertops and a marble book-matched backsplash wall above the range.


Above: There is a family room behind the kitchen, centered around a fireplace. Here, you will also find a hidden elevator and stairwell that brings you up to the main bedroom suite.

Above: The two guest cottages have a similar design style to the main residence and share the same floor plan yet with different dimensions. Each abode has its own private porch, perched over the view and with its own trail that leads to the swimming pool and bocce court.
