If you are in the market for a luxury home in northern California, a great place to begin your search is the Napa/Sonoma wine country. Famed for their fine wine, first-class dining, and temperate climate, Sonoma and Napa Counties offer a way of life second to none.
To the west, Sonoma County tends to be easygoing, with a laid back sophistication. Upscale coastal properties, whether they are in communities like Sea Ranch and Bodega Bay or custom homes overlooking the ocean, are well appointed and many offer spectacular views. In the rolling hills around Cazadero and Occidental, designer homes are often secluded contemporary country estates on acreage. The popular towns of Healdsburg and Sonoma are lifestyle hubs with luxury homes that range from restored Victorian and Craftsman homes to modern architectural works of art.
Sonoma’s neighbor to the east is a little more traditional in style and attitude. The Napa Valley has been compared to Tuscany, and architecture in Napa gives a definite nod to this comparison. From opulent, multi-million dollar estates scattered in the hills around St. Helena and Napa to slightly more modest villas tucked into the vineyards of Rutherford and Calistoga, the Mediterranean influence is apparent. High-end homes in Napa don’t, however, ignore the modernist, and stunning contemporary homes that are perfectly adapted to the Napa climate and lifestyle can be found throughout the valley and in the surrounding hillsides.
For the finest in luxury living, the Napa/Sonoma wine country can’t be beat. Whether your definition of luxury includes privacy, views, subtle indulgence or over-the-top extravagance, take a look at the luxury properties available in Napa and Sonoma Counties.
