Originally called Mesa Grande, the small, unincorporated community of Villa Grande sits just a few short miles from Sonoma Coast State Park, which of course is one of the most visited outdoor attractions in all of Wine Country and features some pretty awesome beaches, hiking trails, picnic areas, and camping sites. As for what you’ll find here within the Villa Grande boundaries, however, most of the area consists of cabins, weekend/vacation rentals, and quiet country homes that are perfect for anybody who puts a premium on privacy and peace and quiet. Some of the most sought-after homes in Villa Grande lie along the Russian River, but with this also being one of Somona County’s smaller communities, housing inventory is often pretty limited.
If you’re lucky enough to find a few desirable options of the Villa Grande real estate market, you’re already one step ahead. As mentioned above, housing inventory is usually pretty limited in this particular part of Wine Country, but even still, home prices still hover around $800,000 to just over $1 million, which of course is pretty common for the Bay Area overall. In fact, recent housing statistics have Villa Grande’s median home value right around $855,000, and that’s not likely to fluctuate a whole lot given most single-family houses in the area are all relatively similar.
