Healdsburg estate is a Tuscan vacation for $1.9 million
Slide 1 of 23
123 Sienna Ct, Healdsburg - $1,995,000
3 beds, 3 baths, 2,578 square feet. Lot size: 2.30 Acres. Year built: 2008.
The exterior of the main residence is making a statement as soon as you arrive, with perfectly sculpted greenery out front and a veranda over the entry. There’s a huge variety of architectural styles to be found throughout California, but this house is taking its cue from the styles of the Italian palazzos.

This sizable room has a large vintage-style wooden cabinet as the main piece of furniture (like an entertainment center), surrounded by comfortable seating and plenty of windows to allow for natural lighting.
Slide 3 of 23
Besides the tilework, granite counters, and stone backsplash, the custom vent hood is all designed to evoke the style of an Italian estate.
Slide 4 of 23
Next to having ample room to cook for large gatherings, there’s an area for family (or visitors) to sit and socialize – or to be used as a causal eating area.

Since everyone can’t fit in the kitchen, there’s also a more formal dining area.
Slide 7 of 23
The downstairs guest bathroom is decorated to give the feeling of a vintage countryside getaway.
Slide 8 of 23
Venturing upstairs, the floorplan is open and takes advantage of windows all around to bring plenty of light and fresh air in.
Slide 9 of 23
The home office is placed in one of these open areas – who wants to feel like they’re in an actual office when working from home!?

Behind the office workspace is the door to the balcony veranda.
Slide 11 of 23
The size of this room can be gauged by the fact that it contains a double-king bed with plenty of room for a lounging couch and a sizable armoire.
Slide 12 of 23
The flooring and custom tilework are showcased in the master bathroom, as well.
Slide 13 of 23
The master bathroom is also big in size. The sinks and dressing area occupy their own area in the bathroom, as opposed to being right next to the bathtub.

Staircase to the foyer.
Heading back downstairs to the entryway, you’ll notice the custom railing.
Slide 15 of 23
When entering the house, the first thing that’s seen is the 4 large fresco panels depicting the Villa of the Mysteries’ from Pompeii. “Although the actual subject of the frescoes is debated, the most common interpretation is that they depict the initiation of a woman into the Dionysian Mysteries, a mystery cult devoted to the god known to the Romans as Bacchus.”
Bacchus is the god of the grape harvest, winemaking, orchards, and fruit, making this an appropriate work of art for wine country.
Slide 16 of 23
The guest room is nowhere near as large as the master bedroom, but it makes good use of windows and natural light to help it feel more open.
Slide 17 of 23
The guest rooms don’t need to be kept as bedrooms if it’s not needed – this room could be set aside for crafts, reading, or even an additional workspace.
Slide 18 of 23
Speaking of extra space, and Bacchus, here’s the wine room, clearly being put to good use.
Slide 19 of 23
Heading outside, the tables are already prepared for al fresco dining and wine tasting.
Slide 20 of 23
Easy walking trails can be found through the fruit trees and grape vines.

And just to round things off, here’s the view of this estate at dusk.
Though built in 2008, this Tuscan-style estate in Healdsburg feels historic. With a front yard planted like the Medici Villas in Florence, the designer of this custom home worked to highlight this Italian styling throughout the house and the landscaping.
As found at any Italian estate, this house in Healdsburg is surrounded by olive and fruit trees, terraced gardens and grapevines. Inside, you’ll find handcrafted mahogany accents and tile floors throughout. In the foyer are four large fresco panels depicting the Villa of the Mysteries’ in Pompeii, and meals can be prepared in a gourmet kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances and eaten al fresco on any of the upper verandas.
On the practical side, this three-bedroom, three-bathroom home includes amenities like radiant heat, central air and a central vacuum system. As a “nice to have” extra, there’s an additional 750- square-foot bonus space and wine room. All this being considered, it wouldn’t be surprising if the owners of this home end up feeling like every day is a vacation in the Italian countryside, but in the beauty of Wine Country.
