The Home

A gracious dwelling for small family living. Embrace a sustainable, gentle life in a rural-feel setting, with space enough to explore, create, and innovate, while adjacent to all city conveniences.

Impeccably remodeled inside and out. All is renewed and updated in spotless, contemporary design.

The open floor plan provides fluid connections between all the spaces in the house. Well-lit rooms and elegant design elements imbue warmth and comfort.

Generous decks and benches situated in the serenely landscaped, large garden create spaces for living outside. The beautiful, redwood fence preserves calm and cozy privacy.

The newly built garden-office, with its own deck and large windows, connects you with the outdoors and invites work-from-home days. It’s outfitted with high-speed internet and an extra storage room.

Now a studio for exercise, meditation, or other use, the former garage also houses the laundry area with a porcelain-tiled work counter and stainless steel sink.

Charge your electric car with the Juicebox Pro40 under the new carport, with its sleek metal roof, and illuminated by can-lights from its knotty-pine ceiling.

Entertain guests at the kitchen’s granite counter and outdoor dining deck. Sample Sonoma County’s award-winning wines, ciders, and beer. Feast on exquisite, local produce, cheeses, and artisan breads from the many farmers’ markets.

This area, sometimes affectionately called one of the last “family-owned and operated” neighborhoods in town, is lined with huge, mature trees that give shade and muffle urban sounds. It’s comfortably walkable and myriad bike routes are close by.

As a small portion of county within the city, the street maintains a country-like atmosphere. The property parcels are large, vegetable gardens abound, and fresh eggs from the chickens next door are plentiful! Egrets, crows, turkeys, and crickets frequent the neighborhood each day, as the sun rises over the backyard, and sets in the front.

Truly a bit of country life tucked away in the midst of city amenities and services!

Creative Class Life

A captivating, starter, second home for the city-dwelling, creative class! Savor a pause from the urban-scape, in this pastoral, private, yet centrally located spot. Work a few days from the tranquil, garden office.
