                          Year Purchased: 2008

                          About the owner: We grew up outside of New York City, went to Yale and Cornell, and raised our families in Sonoma County.

                          Why the Owner Chose Guerneville:
                          We have a large family with nine children, their spouses and 10 grandchildren. We bought this house so we could all be together and relax and visit, and enjoy the river, the woods, the ocean and the gardens. We love it.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          proximity to so many healthy activities, beautiful forest, great swimming pool, tennis and golf nearby our adult children and our grandchildren love to come.
