Sonoma Valley may be best known as wine country California, but it also includes plenty of great communities, neighborhoods and homes. Its idyllic location provides for nearly boundless opportunities in outdoor recreation. These include hiking and horseback riding. In fact, many properties in Sonoma Valley real estate are equestrian homes.
Communities in Sonoma Valley include Sonoma, Eldridge, Kenwood and Glen Ellen, in that order from south to north. These communities appear by Hwy. 12 and within an average of about 5 miles of each other. They pose in the heart of gorgeous, natural surroundings and fertile land, north of the San Francisco Bay. Interested buyers will find homes for sale in Sonoma Valley in a completely different culture and inland environment, as compared to the bay area. That’s good news for people who want to live in a world apart.
