6255 Dry Creek Road
-Adlai Stevenson II
So often, we ask ourselves…
Is it time?
When hard work, commitment, foresight, and good fortune are harnessed together in a person’s life, it is a time to create.
When the intense struggle and sublime grace of the creative process reach an apex, it is a time to dream.
And when seemingly impossible dreams have been achieved, it is time.
It is time to allow yourself the luxury of peace and gratitude, in a place that is worthy of your achievement.
It is time to share that divine and magical place with all those you love best.
A place that is close, but also a world away.
If ever there was an Estate Property that embodies the fulfillment of all these Dreams and Aspirations, that Estate can be found at 6255 Dry Creek Road, in Healdsburg, California. The 50 (+/-) acre Wine Country Manor was designed and constructed in the finest European tradition; taking full advantage of the topography to achieve a tranquility and quiet celebration of life that is almost beyond description.
The sophisticated and elegant seven bedroom home, recently redesigned and expanded by the well-known Bay Area Architect, Aleck Wilson, enjoys sweeping unobstructed panoramic vineyard views of the Dry Creek Valley floor and low hills to the south.There is a large two story rustic style barn designed by Howard Backen, with an additional bedroom suite and fully equipped gym on the top floor. And plenty of room for large scale entertaining below.
Other amenities include a mature six acre Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard, divine farm-to-table fruit and vegetable garden, enchanting treetop playground and outdoor entertainment complex, verdant lawns, extensive (on-property) hillside trails, and, for the car collector, an automobile lift, and front/back garage door access off the circular driveway to best display one-of-a-kind vehicles.
In addition, there are numerous vignettes designed to commune with nature, and with family and friends; including a loggia with a fireplace and translucent mechanical screens, for dining or lounging; a perfectly placed infinity pool, with jacuzzi, taking full advantage of the stunning valley views; a fire-pit; an outdoor kitchen and al Fresco dining patio, and much more.
Perhaps most notable among the countless amenities, is an elaborate fire suppression system that has been designed and installed to further enhance the peace of mind engendered by this captivating Wine Country Estate. In addition, an active solar power system serves to meet some of the property’s energy needs.
If, indeed, this is your time, then there is no better place to celebrate your achievement than 6255 Dry Creek Road.

Years ago, the city of Healdsburg was a dusty, agricultural burg devoted to grape growing and winemaking. But as they say about houses, Healdsburg had good bones, and today homes in the city are highly sought after. Healdsburg's town square, a block of green space featuring a central gazebo that hosts summertime concerts, serves as the community's central gathering place.
Today, that town square is ringed by blocks of upscale hotels, boutiques, and eateries that draw foodies from around the world. Visitors come for the farm-sourced food, the wine, and the shopping. So Healdsburg has been discovered, but it’s not overrun. Besides the laid-back atmosphere of the central shopping district, world-class wineries on Dry Creek Road.
Living the good life is within reach in Healdsburg. Restaurants include Madrona Manor, which boasts a Michelin star, and the adventurous Barndiva. Nightlife is centered on the Raven Performing Arts Theater, which hosts jazz, rock, and Broadway musicals.
Homes in Healdsburg range from Victorians in the central district to one-of-a-kind architectural masterpieces set into the rolling hills that surround the town. To prepare students to thrive in the new green economy, Healdsburg High School has instituted an innovative program called CASA that unites sustainability, architecture, and green construction practices.
