It goes without saying that Coldwell Banker Previews International is one of the foremost leaders in luxury real estate marketing. In fact, all it takes is one quick glance at our “Home of the Week” tab, and we’re pretty sure you’ll be convinced. From a $43.5 million wine country estate in Malibu to a $26 million historic Tudor in one of the Bay Area’s toniest neighborhoods, our “Extraordinary Property of the Week” series reflects the caliber of estate properties Previews represents everyday in California. However, there is a vast swath of extraordinary Previews properties that also represents great value to luxury buyers. So, starting today, we will be featuring extraordinary properties priced under $5 million in a new monthly series we’re calling, “Livable Luxury.” These properties still offer the prestige today’s affluent buyers seek—whether it’s views (waterfront is always in demand), lots of open space or premium amenities like wine cellars, pools and the finest craftsmanship—yet are very much within reach. And now without further adieu…

We bring you this Sonoma County gem set on 2.14 level acres in Kenwood for $2,550,000. Represented by Jerilynn Babington, the 3,310 square-foot sophisticated farmhouse-style residence is nestled at the base of Sugar Loaf Ridge State Park and Mount Hood. Mountain vistas and a stunning private vineyard combine to create a breathtaking and memorable setting tucked away from it all. Set amidst 725 wine producing grape vines,  a year-round bird sanctuary, small olive and walnut tree groves, plus fig, pear and plum trees, this residence exists in a world of its own. The relaxing mood is further set with covered verandas wrapping the house, intricate stone driveways, an Arizona flagstone-decked in-ground pool and flowering gardens. Inside, the 3-bedroom, 3.5-bath residence reveals an open-concept floor plan with great room, Epicurean kitchen with marble countertops and an oversized island, a game room, gym and two stone fireplaces. Three bedrooms feature private-view balconies and en suite baths; while the oversized master suite encompasses a stone fireplace and elegant spa bath. And what wine country estate would be complete without a wine cellar?  Fortunately, this home comes with a 900 square-foot wine cellar. Thoughtful appointments, such as 54 ground mounted solar panels, can be found on the edge of the property. Whether you plan on visiting the nearby world renowned wineries and restaurants, enjoying the surrounding state parks or simply relishing the home’s exterior and interior paradise each day, the home is certainly a tempting choice for those homebuyers who are looking for that extraordinary combination of luxury, lifestyle and value.
