As we adapt to spending more time at home, daydreams 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 alfresco feast—an outdoor loggia with a fireplace, a picturesque pool and an 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.
