What we love about The Bungalow Twins
A designer's dream, this two-bungalow suite is centered around a sleek and shimmering swimming pool, a textured expanse of xeriscape gardens and shady heritage Oaks, all connecting the two separate homes for central gathering. Architecturally conceived to maximize indoor/outdoor living in Sonoma's lovely wine country climate, this open-plan estate also maximizes a dynamic social experience for guests of The Bungalows!
The Bungalows are a chic and stylish sanctuary perched up a private road, each with unique touches but similar in design and amenities. Much of the entertaining will likely be shared and take place under the steel-beam and wood-framed outdoor living area. This minimalist and elegant space houses a full living room suite, formal dining for 12 and complete set of outdoor dinner wear in a modern metal hutch. Warmed by infrared heaters, this open air pavilion is welcoming throughout the year.
With a wall of glass panel doors, this bungalow opens directly to the Pavilion. A fully-equipped chef's kitchen with island seating looks onto the living area with a gas fireplace and rustic, wood tiled wall. A Thermador gas range and industrial grade appliances make cooking a dream. High ceilings, recessed lighting and skylights brighten this space while honey-colored wood floors add warmth. A large flat screen TV and bookshelves (stocked with original screenplays!) offer entertainment options within the serene layout.
The master suite with Queen bed enjoys a private, covered patio with forest views. There is a stall shower and deep soaking tub overlooking the countryside in the exquisitely tiled master bath. Separated by sliding barn doors, space is maximized to create a generous bath with dual vanities. There is an American Leather Queen sofa bed in the living area.
Separated by concrete walkways and tall dry grasses shaded by oak and manzanita, Bungalow 2 is another study in modern, rustic design with wide plank wood floors, white walls and sleek modern furniture. Top-sliding barn doors and pitched ceilings add to the spacious feel in the living/kitchen area. A butcher-block center island offers casual dining for 4. There is a Bosch gas stove top, retro-style refrigerator and top-grade stainless steel dishwasher, and the kitchen is fully stocked for cooking! (Note: There is no oven in Bungalow 2.)
The master bedroom has a queen bed and private door to the spacious bathroom. A floating dual vanity and the large walk-in shower add to the clean, spa-like ambiance of the bath.
There is a large, flat screen (smart) TV (no cable) and American Leather Queen sofa bed in the living area. A generous, covered porch with seating provides a warm welcome for guests or a place to enjoy wine country evenings and views of the Mayacama mountains.
