The latest news cycle has us itchin’ to escape from the anxieties of everyday life, so let’s look at a pretty Italian-style villa in Sonoma County, shall we? The four-bedroom, six-bath residence sits on 57 acres in Sonoma Mountain, with panoramic views of the Valley, the North Bay, and Mount Diablo.

The home was designed by Richard Beard, a San Francisco-based architect known for luxury residences throughout California. The interior is made for entertaining, with a chef’s kitchen and soaring 15-foot ceilings. Large windows let in light and the lime green master bedroom features a gorgeous walk-out patio. The focus on the outdoors makes sense, because it’s the property’s exterior amenities that really shine.

A large pool and patio are just the start. Miles of meandering paths surround the home, as do two ponds, two fruit orchards, a walled garden, a rose garden, and a trellised game area with horse shoes, bocce, and chess. A caretaker’s cottage and attached barn hold two horses, and a small stone family chapel looks quaint enough to be from the Old Country. Love what you see? 18730 Canyon Road is on the market now for $18,000,000.
