While nothing warms the real-estate heart like a cozy Wine Country villa tinged with Tuscan elements, nothing blows the mind like a glass and stone contemporary dazzler in Sonoma, one that does minimalism right.

Designed by Robert Swatt of Swatt Miers Architects, the home at 6201 Starr Road was chosen as one of the 60 projects “2015 American Architecture Awards.” The 2015 construction features four beds, three and one half baths, and approximately 5,000 square feet of main residence, all of it using glass, stucco and stone.

Located on a slopping knoll, and surrounded by 20 acres of pinot noir vineyards, the house was fashioned to be an elongated "T," featuring an all-glass south side, pool, and “floating” roof.

Of particular note are the cantilevered (i.e., protruding) guest room, the 810-square-foot cottage modeled after the main house, and the glass-ceiling master bath.

Located in town of Windsor, the home sold for $8 million.
