Viansa Winery Co-Founder Lists Grand Sonoma Home and Finds a Buyer Fast
California wine country counts amongst its addresses a dazzling array of wineries and estates. Classic colonials roll into abodes that appear transported from the Mediterranean coast—and high-profile homeowners are no rarity. Vicki Sebastiani, co-founder of family-run Viansa Winery, is now selling her Sonoma residence. A peaceful property in the valley with panoramic mountain views, the home was recently listed for $4.75 million and has already gone into contract.
According to the listing and to legend, San Francisco’s British Embassy first developed the home in 1916 to be their summer residence. As it stands today, the property is split between two parcels with the possibility to add another home to the picturesque land. The first portion spans 6.9 acres and holds the original main house, a three-bedroom and three-bathroom beauty overlooking a solar-heated pool and tennis court. A tw0-bedroom guest house sits not far away and all the airy and bright interiors were designed by Mia Sandmark Design.
The second parcel, a 5.5-acre property, has a four-bedroom perc. Yet to be built, the home once executed will enjoy unobstructed views of Sonoma Mountain. Carol Sebastiani of Sotheby’s International Realty – Wine Country East Napa Street Brokerage holds the listing.
