Right at Home: Properties with Cool Modern Conveniences in Northern California

Posted on Wednesday, March 25, 2020.


As we adapt to spending more time at home, day dreams of hyper helpful (and entertaining) at-home amenities begin to dance in our heads. From the comfort of your couch, we’re bringing you an inside look into great properties with cool modern conveniences—from at-home yoga studios to chef-inspired kitchens and expansive wine cellars. 

1463 VINE LANE | ALAMO
The main floor of this 5,550-square-foot home features an executive office, wine room and gourmet kitchen that is fit for a true home chef with two granite islands, stainless steel Thermador appliances, two ovens, two sinks, two dishwashers and a generous pantry. The interior courtyard adds to the remarkable design of the home. Also on the main level is the master retreat, which is outfitted with a fireplace, a spa-like bath and a private patio. Outside, find a backyard oasis equipped with all the amenities to cook up and enjoy an al fresco feast—an outdoor loggia with a fireplace, a picturesque pool and outdoor kitchen with grill and refrigerator. Located within the gated enclave Westside Alamo, 1463 Vine Lane is represented by Andrea Scott

129 MOONLIGHT DRIVE | HEALDSBURG
129 Moonlight Drive had us at “500-bottle wine cellar.” In addition to being an oenophile’s dream, this Craftsman-style estate also appeals to at-home chefs—its kitchen features Viking appliances, a Sub-Zero refrigerator and eat-in, stone-topped island. Upstairs, a light-filled master suite offers dual dressing rooms, while the lower level houses another bedroom with a full bath (which could also serve as a home office) and a bonus room equipped with theater-style surround sound. Outside, find a pool and in-ground spa connected by a soothing waterfall feature. 129 Moonlight Drive is represented by Susan Montgomery and Ashton Montgomery.

722 UNIVERSITY STREET | HEALDSBURG
This serene Healdsburg home is designed in a uniquely elegant—yet warm and welcoming—French country-meets-modern style. Who needs to go to the yoga studio when there’s a gorgeous one right at home? This 3,303-square-foot home’s renovated lower level features a unique steel beam from Sonoma’s original Alexander Valley bridge plus a full bathroom. This space could also serve as an artist’s studio or guest suite. Another convenient feature—a bright two-bedroom, two-bath guest house. This property is highly versatile—it has the potential to be subdivided and is large enough to accommodate a new swimming pool and pool house. 722 University Street is represented by Kathy Stauffer.

1338 FILBERT STREET #B | SAN FRANCISCO
Ever heard of a “Batcave” garage? It’s a special kind of San Francisco convenience—a subtly camouflaged street-level garage that provides coveted protected parking. This three-level Craftsman-style timber cottage between Hyde and Polk Streets offers such a “Batcave” with parking for three vehicles. Additional features include three en-suite bedrooms, three-and-a-half high-end baths, and a fully equipped, skylit kitchen with Miele and Sub-Zero appliances. A top floor master suite boasts Palace of Fine Arts and Golden Gate Bridge views. 1338 Filbert Street #B is represented by Rachel Swann.
