A SENSE OF PLACE
As you arrive at this special place located in the iconic Russian River Valley you are immediately captivated by nature. Here nature has been allowed to coexist within the spaces of the home and structures. Nature takes priority here, whether it’s the bees, butterflies, insects, birds or people, you are embraced by its beauty, its elegance without manipulation and pure grace. The architecturally designed home by Dimitri Vedensky was inspired by the pueblos in Portugal, with its stucco exterior and inner courtyard defined by the moss-covered stone walls and surrounding majestic trees. Just steps away from the main residence is the studio with a full bath, high ceilings and a wall of windows allowing abundant light to fill the space. An open-air pool house designed by architects Joe Kennedy and Claudia Cleaver includes a full kitchen, covered sitting area with fireplace, infrared dry sauna, shower, changing room, and attached deck. The barn was completely restored from the interior, preserving the wonderful character of the exterior. A short walk away from the pool house, through the Manzanita grove, in a secret spot, is the yurt - a quiet spot to basque in the views of the Russian River. The gardens have been designed and nurtured by world-renowned naturalist and gardener, Kate Frey, who has created a place of ever-changing color, life, and beauty. From the majestic oak grove, the abundant manzanitas, the orchard and vegetable garden, this is a place to refresh and restore your sense of being.

This architecturally designed home by Dimitri Vedensky was built in 1989, and inspired by the pueblos in Portugal, with its stucco exterior and inner courtyard defined by the moss-covered stone walls and surrounding majestic trees. The graceful water feature in the courtyard invites you to the entrance of the home. The spacious floor plan with its high ceilings and warm wood floors flows from the public rooms to the quiet spaces of the library and office. The home is ideally suited to entertain family and friends with four large bedrooms, each with en-suite baths. The master bedroom, located on the upper floor, is a delightful retreat with sitting room, his & her closets and spacious master bath. The “meditation” room off the master suite is a special place to relax with views of Mount Saint Helena. From every window in the home, nature is on display creating visual art to inspire. There are large overhangs on both the front and back sides of the home, which allow for places to sit and enjoy the views.
THE COBB POOL HOUSE
The open-air pool house designed by architects Joe Kennedy and Claudia Cleaver has a full kitchen, covered sitting area with fireplace, infrared dry sauna, shower, changing room, and attached deck. The in-ground salt water pool with flowing water feature and stone work perimeter exudes a spa-like retreat. In addition, there is a pizza oven and storage room. Adjacent to the pool house is the “gathering circle” with pebble mosaic sunburst stone floor and overhanging oak limbs, making it an enchanted place to sit and gather.
Just steps away from the main residence is the studio with a full bath, high ceilings and a wall of windows allowing abundant light to fill the space. There are many flexible ways to use the space. It has its own private patio with stone accents nestled in a manzanita grove.
The barn was completely restored from the interior, preserving the wonderful character of the exterior. Inside it houses the panel for the solar connections and the water treatment system. There is ample storage for equipment, including a tractor, 4 wheel mules, trucks, and miscellaneous farm tools. There is foreman’s office and a generator, which will automatically start should the power go out and shut off when the power is restored.
This secret place is located a short walk away from the pool house through the manzanita grove. The round structure with screened windows, front door, bamboo floors and attached deck is magical place to meditate, spend the night in nature or as a yoga space.
