According to house planner Jack Thomasson, HGTV Dream Home 2009 is a classically styled, wine-country farmhouse in a beautiful neighborhood setting in Sonoma, Calif. "Upon entering the foyer of the house, you will immediately sense that you are where you intended to be: in a wonderful retreat in the heart of California wine country," says Thomasson. "And since entertaining is key to this region, you'll find the house is designed to accommodate gatherings of family and friends."
