Palatial playground surroundedby vineyard views in Ukiah
March 17, 2017
[...] a distance from the city keeps the region private, yet accessible to Bay Area residents searching for a low-key hideaway. The Ukiah Municipal Airport is a few minutes away, offering executive aircraft a convenient spot to touch down for a weekend getaway. For those who like to cook, the home offers a superlative indoor chef’s kitchen, as well as a sheltered patio with a built-in grill and pizza oven outside. The angular footprint bows the home toward the driveway, and the front door stands within a shady portico. The same material palette is used along the rear facade with wraparound decks overlooking the pool and spa. Skylights and tall windows brighten a living area that opens into an open kitchen with stone counters, integrated appliances and a cooktop built into an alcove. Anchoring the far end of this level is the master suite, a getaway defined by a walk-in closet and spa bathroom with jetted tub. Abundant built-ins like ceiling speakers, a bar counter and another gas fireplace await in a sprawling game room that opens to a view deck with the outdoor kitchen. Organic agriculture plays a prominent role in Ukiah, but the region’s fruits and vegetables aren’t all that wind up on menus. Of the 17,000 acres of vineyards in Mendocino County, roughly a quarter of them grow certified organic grapes.
