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.
