Description

Built in 1910, this gorgeous 1,580 sq. ft. home has been lovingly and carefully renovated over the past 11 years by discerning artists who have perfectly captured the historical flavor of Sonoma on the quarter acre corner lot.

Up the steps of the traditional porch, through the front door, there’s a large and welcoming entry space that leads through unique etched glass double doors to open living and dining areas with tall ceilings, beautiful wide-plank French oak floors and a marble gas fireplace for radiant heat. The spacious, well-appointed kitchen has Brazilian quartzite countertops with ample prep space, high-end appliances, a Shaw’s farm sink, and handmade tile backsplash. Custom cupboards by cabinetmaker, Pat Arend, can store all your glasses, dinnerware, cutlery and cookware and your food processor and mixer are hidden on convenient, pull up and out shelving. The comfy and bright kitchen window seat with under-bench storage drawers is perfect for everyday meals, and hidden electrical outlets make it easy to work or school from home.

The primary bedroom is splendidly appointed with custom built-in closets, cupboards and an ensuite bathroom. There is a second bedroom next to a charming, full bath. The third bedroom is currently used as a den/office. Attached garage has been drywalled and includes both typical and cedar-lined closets and a laundry area with newer LG appliances from 2020.

Solar panels, Tesla battery back up and a new roof were installed in 2020, resulting in energy conservation as well as small electric bills. Water for the home is from the City and a private, hand-cut stone well irrigates the garden. Security is provided by a wireless ADT security system. Large French doors from the dining area open to wide flagstone steps that lead into the back courtyard. The wisteria-laden arbor, patio dining area, inviting firepit, and burbly fountain set the perfect tone for wine country entertaining. Mature trees, including a male ginkgo, valley oak, hackberry, magnolias, Meyer lemon, Fuyu persimmon, pear, cherry, English walnut, olive and fig, border and shade the property.

Sunrise greets the front garden with raised beds of blooming flowers, where you can settle on the bench and sip your morning coffee while watching birds splash in the quietly flowing fountain. Your views of the Montini Preserve also feature sunrise, moonrise and meteor showers. You can even watch the 4th of July fireworks from your front yard. Have fun with your 50-vine hobby vineyard of Cab Franc and Merlot, stroll or roll two blocks to the Montini trailhead or bike path that leads to the Sonoma Plaza and appreciate the many reasons you live in Sonoma.
