The New Kid in Town: Glen Ellen Star Restaurant

Yesterday morning I went over to Glen Ellen to check out some new country properties on the Sonoma Broker Tour. As agents we hold our new listings open so that the agent community can preview the new inventory without having to make an appointment. We just show up. Ideally refreshments are provided Sometimes there is a drawing for a bottle of wine or a gift certificate. Yesterday I was able to look at two beautiful new country property listings in Glen Ellen and also to check out the hottest new restaurant in town. Glen Ellen must have one of the highest ratios of restaurants to business establishments of just about anywhere, and now there’s a new spot to check out. We ran in to look at the menu–it is only open for dinner. Looks promising. And here is a link to Heather Irwin’s first look review in Bite Club, the Santa Rosa Press Democrat foodie blog.

Oh, and those new listings were pretty interesting too.

The first is on 26 acres on Enterprise Road.  It has a rambling country house with nice views of the surrounding countryside and the horse pasture below the property.  This really is a “Wine Country and Horses” property as it also has a several acre zinfandel vineyard.  You can ride in to Jack London State Park and come home and sip wine from your own property afterwards.  Not a bad combination.  The house was very comfortable with beautiful old wide plank floors and woodwork with a lot of character.  The master suite had some of the best views on the property.  If you want my opinion on the asking price of $4.2 Million, please call me to discuss.

We're sorry, but we couldn't find MLS # 21213674 in our database. This property may be a new listing or possibly taken off the market. Please check back again.

The other property is on Chauvet Road and you could easily walk to the Glen Ellen Market or any of the MANY good restaurants in town. You could also get up in to Jack London pretty easily from here as Chauvet runs in to London Ranch Road.  I should do a post on Jack London State Park as it is easily one of the most beautiful and interesting places in Sonoma County, whether you bring your horses or hike or drive in.

This particular new listing on Chauvet will probably sell very quickly because it is the type of country property that will strongly appeal to someone looking for a second home.  Interesting contemporary design and construction details, a pool and pool house.  The fact that it is tucked away at the end of a lane and not visible from the street provides the kind of privacy that many people are looking for in their wine country home.  The listing agent is reviewing offers at noon on next Tuesday June 12.  I suspect it will sell quickly.

We're sorry, but we couldn't find MLS # 21213483 in our database. This property may be a new listing or possibly taken off the market. Please check back again.
