"Sky Hawk is cool for school"

Rincon Valley is too large to classify as just one neighborhood, but Sky Hawk rests on its' Eastern boundary and offers mush to those seeking quality homes, schools, weather and access into the Sonoma Valley (Kenwood & Glen Ellen) wine country. This master planned community saw construction start in the mid 1990's and carried on for about 10 years (there is only a small 18 unit section left to be constructed). There were several phases built by Christopherson Homes and each phase was a dressed up larger version of the prior. There are now about 500 homes that populate this community which is centered around Austin Creek Elementary school (one of the most highly rated/scored around). The homes range in size (with the exception of the Parkside collection which offered 3 models ranging from 900-1300sqft.) from 1900-4200 sqft. Some have amazing large level yards, but most encounter upward or downward sloping ones. You will find a bevy of 3 car garages here as well. The neighbors are keenly aware of the "what's happening" in their area and what's not. In 2013, you could expect to pay $700,000-$800,000 for the average home bosting about 3000sqft of living area. Some homes have seen incredible/imaginative things done with the finishes and some are very basic with white tile and oak everywhere. At the top of Sailing Hawk and Mountian Hawk you will find the most premium lots and interesting roof lines, also the highest prices (think $950,000-1,200,000).
  • Sky Hawk is the crown jewell of the overall area
  • Schools & home size draw people here
  • Close to Annadell State Park & Spring Lake, not to mention the desirable Sonoma Valley
  • about 15 minutes out from everything downtown
