Description

Big Star Farm is your private sanctuary just outside downtown Guerneville, where contemporary craftsmanship meets natural beauty. This custom-built 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom home offers a food-lovers kitchen and garden, mid-century modern touches, and lovingly selected local antique furnishings. Through the master bedroom, an elegant step-down 1000-book library and fully equipped office for those who need to work includes a Queen sleeper sofa.

Two cheery gas fireplaces (and central heat) add warmth, a hot tub and custom outdoor 6-person cedar barrel sauna provide relaxation, and a fully equipped gourmet kitchen awaits your culinary adventures. En suite bathrooms attached to each bedroom include Japanese, powered bidet toilets. An expansive wrap-around deck with a propane BBQ, dining table, and lounging areas invites outdoor living. Nearby trails and the adjacent fire road offer miles of hiking and forest bathing, and beautiful starry skies provide a tranquil backdrop for stargazing at night.

The property spans 10+ acres and includes a raised bed garden, a small orchard with 16 types of heirloom fruit trees, a mini-vineyard, and berry patches, creating a personal homestead experience. The gardens and home are situated within a gated, 2.5-acre perimeter, 8 foot high fence – you are welcome to bring your dogs and let them roam without worry.

Tucked away at the end of a rural hillside road, with 1,550 square feet of interior comfort and 1,000 square feet of redwood deck, Big Star Farm is like having your own private redwood forest – even though you’re only minutes from Guerneville’s downtown and river access for more outdoor adventures.

Immersed in nature, Big Star Farm is the perfect retreat for those seeking a quiet escape in the Russian River area. Welcome to your personal paradise!
