Downtown living in California Wine Country just got elevated
The 10-acre Mill District neighborhood sits in downtown Healdsburg, a small town and Sonoma County’s hottest destination for wine, food, and outdoor adventure. Just steps from the historic plaza’s boutique shops are Michelin-starred restaurants, art galleries, tasting rooms and artisanal bars. Olson Kundig, a member of Architectural
Digest’s AD100 for eight consecutive years, is leading the architecture and interior design of Canopy, the first collection of 43 residences set amid a preserved grove of redwood trees and overlooking town and the surrounding area.
With an awe-inspiring sense of openness, sliding glass walls seamlessly combine lofty interiors with stunning
exteriors for a fluid living experience. Canopy includes five penthouses with impressive views, four Garden Homes that live like single-family homes and open directly to the garden with private terraces and water features, and 34 single-level Flats, which range from studios to three-bedrooms plus offices. Each residence embodies the essence of
contemporary luxury, creating spaces that incorporate elevated design with comfort and simplicity.
The Penthouses at Canopy are the only opportunity in Northern California Wine Country to experience tree-level living, featuring commanding views of Healdsburg and the surrounding mountains. Expansive terraces, temperature-controlled wine rooms, outdoor kitchens and dining and lounging areas create the perfect setting to enjoy the best of Wine Country living.
Designed for living and entertaining, both the indoor and outdoor kitchens fuse contemporary luxury with a warm, inviting ambience. Chefinspired kitchens by Mill District’s one-ofa-kind collaboration with chef and co-owner Kyle Connaughton of the 3 Michelin Star SingleThread Farm, Restaurant and Inn —
just named one of the 50 best restaurants in the world — will be complete with German-engineered Miele appliances. Wine rooms will be home to curated wines from around the world with optimized wine storage designed to fit your wine lifestyle by SingleThread’s wine team, recently awarded the Grand Award by Wine Spectator.
Spa-inspired bathrooms with free-standing sculptural tubs, frameless and curbless glass showers and marble walls create a soothing environment. Large windows provide natural light and views, while maintaining privacy. Premium finishes and natural materials are prevalent throughout the home.
The Garden Homes are an exclusive collection of only four residences that live like single-family homes. These two-level homes with primary bedrooms on the main level have their own exterior entry and individual front door at ground level. A private terrace, outdoor kitchen and landscaped privacy sit among The Preserve — a 1-acre haven of gardens and redwoods.
Natural light will fill the residences and the 18-foot double-height living room, with sliding glass walls seamlessly connecting indoor and outdoor dining areas and living spaces. Interiors feature organic, timeless materials, including large-plank oak floors and stone countertops, exuding warmth and rooting in the living environs.
The last available onebedroom is $1.8 million, one-bedroom plus den from $2.85 million and two-bedroom and threebedroom residences and penthouses from the low $3 million to $8.5 million. www.mill districthealdsburg.com.
