Sitting majestically in the heart of the California wine country is Villa Testarossa, located just three miles from Sonoma’s historic downtown plaza. You will truly believe that you have been transported to Tuscany. The dramatic entry drive crosses a 3-acre chardonnay vineyard and reveals a stately, 14,565+/- square foot home complimented by enchanting gardens and olive trees that together fully express timeless old world elegance. This home took more than 5 years to construct and used over 4,000,000 pounds of concrete, more than 200,000 pounds of steel and 110 slabs of granite. Each room is spacious in feel yet very comfortable to live in.
The grand entry shimmers with marble and granite and provides ample space for any gathering. The ceiling soars 12 feet high and sets off the rhythm of this beautiful home. A double granite and marble staircase is bathed in the Sonoma sunshine in every room due to the large, extraordinary symmetrical windows that surround the home.
The ground floor features a chef’s kitchen that looks out over the vines, the cutting garden and outdoor entertaining spaces. Multiple prepping stations, granite and marble countertops, high end appliances, butler’s pantry and kitchen pantry with laundry room complete the very usable space. This cozy and inviting kitchen has many special touches that enhance the living experience. The living room is comfortable for an intimate conversation and large enough to hold your biggest gathering. The grand dining room is set for more formal events and family celebrations. A media room, staff’s quarters and multiple spaces for home offices completes this floor.
The second floor begins with a lovely sitting area at the top of the double staircase, which looks out on the vineyards that line the entrance. Facing the rear of the property is a cozy sunroom with views of the vines and the mature gardens. The grand master suite has multiple sitting areas that are warm and inviting. An exercise room, and laundry room adjoin the master suite. There are an additional 4 spacious en suite bedrooms on this floor.
