Delightful Farmhouse Near Sonoma Plaza
Providing a refreshing blend of country charm, in-town convenience and luxury amenities, this completely renovated approximately 3,700 sq. ft. farmhouse-style home near Sonoma Plaza is brimming with character. Resting on nearly one-half acre of lovely landscaping and mature trees along scenic Nathanson Creek, it hosts hardwood floors throughout, elegant crown molding, recessed lighting, stacked bluestone fireplace surrounds and many more custom features. It’s a tranquil retreat that is also a wonderful place to entertain family and friends.
A flagstone motor court introduces the special home and its large and welcoming old fashioned covered porch. Once inside, one is instantly embraced by the comforting ambiance of an earlier time, when life was more relaxed and refined. A spacious foyer opens to the living room with its impressive fireplace and wall of windows and French doors to an expansive veranda overlooking trees and gardens. The formal dining room offers an air of relaxed luxury with its board-and-batten wainscoting and coffered ceiling. Nearby, the chef’s kitchen combines style and practicality. High-end stainless appliances, extensive cabinetry, a large butcher block-topped island and a sunny breakfast nook are complemented by richly-stained hardwood floors and ceiling, crown molding and black granite counters and backsplashes.
A convenient first floor guestroom hosts a walk-in closet, and a bath en suite, with custom tile, large glassed-in shower, and wall-mounted flat-screen television.
Upstairs, restful privacy awaits in the spacious master suite plus three additional bedrooms. The master offers beautiful views to the gardens and creek, a pair of walk-in closets, and a luxurious bath en suite -- with expansive windows, soaking tub and separate shower, marble counters, wainscoting and crown molding. The upstairs guest bath is equally impressive.
Outside beyond the home’s verandas, thoughtful landscaping and multiple exterior features – including raised vegetable and flower gardens, a pool and spa, a children’s play area with lawn and farmhouse replica playhouse, and an ivy-covered slope with walking path along the creek -- create excellent possibilities for entertaining and family get-togethers.
Convenience to Sonoma Plaza and all of the delightful shops, dining, galleries and services it provides, combined with spacious grounds, proximity to the scenic creek and farmhouse design make this the quintessential “town and country” home.

A small town with a rich history, the center of the loca-vore food movement, and in the heart of the wine country, Sonoma is content to play country mouse to its citified cousin, Napa. You won't find enormous tour buses disgorging 100s of passengers in downtown Sonoma. The town is laid back, quiet, and with a population around 10,000, small.
Centered on one of the most beautiful town plazas in the state, with its historic, preserved Mission that dates from 1823, Sonoma has the feel of a small country town. That is, if a small country town boasted more than a dozen tasting rooms of award-winning wineries. Surrounded by vineyards and more than 60 world-class wineries that mix the elegant with the down home, Sonoma is ground zero for great wine and the lifestyle that goes with it.
That means Sonoma is premier destination, sought after for its laid back pace of life, its natural beauty, and its proximity to San Francisco, just 45 miles away. Which means there is plenty to do here - from jazz festivals, to the parade of vintage fire trucks through downtown, to the cooking classes at Ramekins, the Sonoma International Film Festival, or the art openings at Sonoma Valley Museum of Art.
Spacious homes in the vineyards and rolling hills around Sonoma command spectacular views. Today the multimillion-dollar estates of Sonoma range from Tuscan-style villas to more adventurous concrete and glass architectural statements.
