The 1970s and 80s were an interesting time, aesthetically, when it came to architecture (and fashion). Tract homes were big (shoulder pads were, too), with the opposite side of the spectrum being yurts, Xanadu homes made primarily with polyurethane, or just…dirt.

But this stunning 1978 Wine Country estate  on Montecito Avenue in Santa Rosa doesn’t follow either of those two paths (thankfully). Instead, it’s a timeless, European-style estate located on 3+ acres.

With 4 bedrooms and 6,045 square feet of interior space, there’s plenty of room for the whole family along with the occasional overnight guest. When a house is this sizable, my assumption is that the homeowners are fond of entertaining; the pool and seating areas around the estate would appear to verify this belief.

Here’s another way I’m going to veer just a bit from what I usually highlight: this house has no wine cellar, no media room with a full-size movie screen and no recording studio. What it has is architecture that makes the most of soaring ceilings and floor-to-ceiling-windows that offer breathtaking views of the scenery outside.

After a hard day at the office, what better way to put it all behind you than taking a good look at the natural beauty of Sonoma County – with or without a good glass of chilled chardonnay. This 4 bed, 5 bath home is located at 3700 Montecito Ave. in Santa Rosa and is listed at $2,450,000. Scroll through the slideshow to see what level of relaxation can be yours for $2 million.
