Stunning Spanish revival dream home in Sonoma wine country

This beautiful Spanish revival estate was designed by , located in Sonoma, a historic city in northern California. The homeowner’s previously resided in a Spanish revival neighborhood in San Mateo, so they wanted their new to home to reflect their interest in that style. Additionally they wanted to incorporate features they have seen on their travels. Their Sonoma property was only a short jaunt from the historic downtown district. It offered several natural features, including mature oak trees, rock outcroppings and a beautiful meadow for a new vineyard.

The challenge this project presented to the architects was to tear down a poorly designed existing home. In its place, construct a slightly larger residence, while preserving as many of the large oaks as possible. The new home features 3,600 square feet of conditioned living space with an 1,800 square foot basement, 2,500 square feet of outdoor patios and terraces and a 760 square foot garage.

According to the architect, “the Spanish revival style is typically characterized by fields of traditional, informal materials with focused accents of highlighted details.” To achieve this appearance the architect selected stone, stucco and tile as field materials, heavy timber and iron for the accents, and employed local artisans and craftsmen.

Above: The walls are clad with a thin stone veneer (1-1/2-2″ thick) called cold water canyon — Eldorado Stone. The stones surrounding the arched openings are poured-in placed concrete, which are made to look like cut stone.

What We Love: This Spanish revival home offers exquisite architectural details throughout, exuding a warm and inviting atmosphere. The array of authentic material elements employed in this dwelling, including stone, stucco, timber, wood and iron creates an overall beautiful aesthetic. We are especially loving the mix of modern pieces with antiques, adding an elegant touch to this delectable dream home.
