Luxurious Modern Design of Sonoma Barn in California

But some would still choose to live a discreet place to enjoy its tranquility and to maintain an environment close to countryside. But because of the refined skills of some architect it can happen that there can be a house in an area like this same as the Sonoma Valley that was built with a jaw-dropping contemporary design. Sonoma Valley is located in south-eastern Sonoma County in California. Its rich soil marks the birthplace of California’s wine industry.
