          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 1995

          About the owner: I am originally from Massachusetts and moved to California 25 years ago. I am a local dentist (Prosthodontist) and have two offices in the towns of Sonoma and Napa. Most weekends I can be found either skiing, motorcycling, or playing golf or tennis. My east coast roots shine brightly as I am a 'die-hard' ice hockey enthusiast.

          Why the Owner Chose Sonoma:
          My professional life as a dentist brought me to the Sonoma/Napa Valleys 20 years ago. I was fortunate to have purchased this idyllic location in 1995 and raise my two daughters here until it was time for them to attend high school in Marin County. It made sense to move closer to their schools and 5 years ago we made the move to Marin.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          My Sonoma home remains very much the same as it was when we lived there and thus you should experience a very 'lived in, homey' feeling while relaxing in our home.
