The Founder of Decorist Is Selling Her Sonoma Home for $12.5 Million

The 6,400-square-foot modernist home offers sweeping views of Mount Diablo, San Pablo Bay and the San Francisco skyline. Take a look inside.

Gretchen Hansen, CEO and founder of Decorist, is selling her Sonoma home for $12.5 million. The property, which is situated on 6.5 acres, offers sweeping views of Mount Diablo, San Pablo Bay and the San Francisco skyline on a clear day.

The 6,400-square-foot home, which has six bedrooms and six bathrooms, features a stone exterior with rounded corners and modernist style that blends with the natural setting. Oak trees surround the property and serve as art inside the home, thanks to the placement of windows. The kitchen and bathrooms feature picture windows where one might otherwise find cabinets or vanities.

High ceilings in the bedroom and living room create a sense of grandness, but it’s the inspired design touches throughout that really make the home stand out. The use of white oak and marble throughout offers a look that’s equal parts elegant and understated. Sumptuous furnishings include a wood-root bench, tree-trunk slice stools and organically-shaped armchairs, all in shades of beiges, whites and slates.

Other amenities include a 1,500-bottle wine cellar, a pool and spa, an outdoor kitchen, a guesthouse and a bocce ball court. Click through the above gallery for a peek inside the home.
