Healdsburg Getaway

Situated in rolling hills above the Russian River, this home designed by Backen & Backen Architects is reminiscent of a modern farmhouse. Antiques and a variety of finishes ranging from turtle quartz slabs in the main bath to reclaimed beams, flooring and baseboard lend an old-world ambiance to a grand overall look opening to beautiful views. Rustic wood, leather and stone throughout bring a comfortable, nostalgic feeling to every room. Opening any of a number of large steel and glass pocket doors unifies the charm of interior décor with the sweeping allure of outdoor spaces. Residents and guests alike are welcomed by a new paved driveway lined with thirty ancient olive trees. Behind the house, a spacious terrace leads to an infinity-edge pool and bocce court. Further afield lies a two-story guest house situated amongst native trees warmly referred to as the “Tree House”.
