Why we have a crush on this property

You’re sipping a chilled glass of Sauvignon Blanc on the porch of this little cottage. As the sun sets over the trees, the twinkle lights overhead switch on. There’s not a screen in sight.

This enchanting scene could be your reality if you were to buy this charming home for sale. Nestled in the woods of California’s wine country, the two-bedroom abode looks to resemble a treehouse, thanks to its leafy surroundings. A set of steps leads to that front porch, where two Adirondack chairs flank a live tree growing through the deck.

Inside, a breezy living room opens to a wood-paneled dining area. A skylight window bathes the room in sunlight, while a wood stove warms it up. The kitchen, complete with a farmhouse sink, open shelving, and an island, overlooks it all.

The main bedroom, meanwhile, boasts another skylight, plus room for a reading nook. The second bedroom can be found down the stairs next to the pantry. It’s an ideal guest room/home office hybrid. The entire home features an eclectic mix of light fixtures, plus framed forest views from each of its windows. And around back, another deck makes the perfect spot for dining outside.
