Mid-Century Modern Cottage in Wine Country

Perched on Sonoma Mountain, surrounded by vineyards. This is the ultimate Wine Country exchange. Experience Sonoma County as the local wine growers do—but without their hard work!

In the heart of Wine Country, above the place Jack London called "The Valley of the Moon" in his famous novel of that title. We are an hour from Pacific Ocean beaches and within easy reach of the best hiking, cycling, dining, and wine-tasting opportunities in the world.

Ours is a rural road that winds past vineyards and hidden mansions, yet we are only one hour and fifteen minutes from San Francisco.

We will not home-trade before the pandemic subsides, but we can discuss.

NOTE: If you wish, exchange might also include use of our San Francisco apartment (Intervac listing USUSC724), an hour and fifteen minutes away. Be sure to ask about that bonus!

Presentatie tekst voor het gezin

We are Charles (retired art critic, college president, and art museum director) and Kitty (the retired Features Editor of a major newspaper). We now split our time between homes in San Francisco and in Sonoma County, as Kitty works on writing a book and Charles considers the metaphors presented by a small vineyard, orchard, and garden.

Lifestyle

We are very active people, both physically (we exercise most days, walk 5-6 miles daily) and socially. In the city (San Francisco), we attend art exhibition openings, theater and music events several nights each week. In the country (Sonoma County), we enjoy nature, visit the numerous famous wineries and vineyards, and re-charge our batteries among our grapevines, fruit trees and vegetable garden. We read a lot, miss too many current movies, have no TV (though we stream things online).
