Jolie Vue (French for pretty view) sits secluded just off Westside Road—Pinot Road as the locals call the artery linking hundreds of Sonoma County’s most famous wineries and vineyards. Entering through a custom electronic gate, the lane rises over a hill to reveal your first glimpses of the 16± acre property: the tranquil valley and surrounding hills, glistening 4± acre lake and, of course, the house at the far end of the lane. You drive along the water’s edge, past the screened-in boat house hinting at parties to come. Willows, oaks, pine and pear trees, lush landscaping and newly planted vines wave hello. Tourists wine-tasting up and down Westside Road are left far behind.
The main house and guest quarters are impressive, having been meticulously renovated over three years, finishing in 2020. The main house features a grand room, dining room, gourmet kitchen, 2 master suites, 3.5 baths, guest studio, office, walk-in wine closet, utility room, and three distinctive, wood-burning fireplaces grace the main house. The guest quarter's master suite with generous living room, bedroom and bath has a private garden area. All afford spectacular views of the lake, vineyards and surrounding hills. Outdoors areas, one anchored with a large, wood-burning fireplace, have been carefully considered for their views of the lake and vineyards. The garage harbors three generous bays, shop area, and restroom with outside access.
