              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1930

              About the owner: Local gal to the San Francisco Bay Area. Grew up in Marin, San Francisco and Sonoma. Love to travel and collect special architectural details to decorate my home with.

              Why the Owner Chose Sonoma:
              This property has been in my family since the 1930s. My Grandmother bought the property before there were even paved roads to it, only dirt. Since then I have transformed it into something quite remarkable that you can enjoy.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              My husband, as contractor and construction, and I, as designer, worked as a team to design, build and decorate this beautiful home. It is interiorly decorated and exteriorly landscaped with a passion for the eclectic all which I personally have done. My amazing husband is also a fine woodworker and built the kitchen cabinets, and most if not all of the furniture throughout. It really is a one of a kind!
