Situated on a hilltop overlooking 40 wooded acres, the Sonoma Wine Country House takes advantage of its northern California location with seamless access to the landscape. The home adopts an L-shaped design, wrapping around a poolside terrace. Running parallel with the ridge, the main living area is fitted with four garage-style doors. When closed, the glass and steel panels afford the great room with views spanning over the pool to the village of Healdsburg below. With the doors open, the concrete floors become part of the patio turning the interior into an open-air pavilion. The perpendicular wing houses the private areas where an additional door connects the master bedroom to the surrounding nature. A palette of natural materials complements the scenery to create a rustic retreat on the exterior while minimal finishes give the inside an overall modern aesthetic.
