About the owner: I am an artist and a retired San Francisco high school teacher. Much of the furniture and cabinetry in the house was hand crafted by my husband and me. His furniture is shown in galleries in Northern California. I am a sculptor and web designer and live and work nearby. The house was designed and lovingly built to house our family, now gone to their own lives. It is sunny and private with lots of oak trees and a meadow. If you moved to Sonoma County, this is exactly where you would want to live...beautiful, quiet, private and inviting. We eat organic fruits and vegetables all year long, not to mention quaff the wine.
Why the Owner Chose Sebastopol: As a child I came from Denver to visit my aunties here in Sebastopol in the 1940's-60's. While living in San Francisco during the 70-90's we set up our furniture and wood working shop here when it became too costly to work in SF, eventually moving the family here to live in the country. While living in SF we came up here for the Apple Festival, concerts and dances and enjoyed visiting the beach and all the little villages.
The Unique Benefits at this House: It is so quiet here I could not move back to the city. Everywhere one looks one sees beauty and that's important to me. It's exciting to have so many artists and vineyards surrounding us, and being near the ocean and seeing the green and hilly landscape, studded with oaks and redwoods just tops it all off.
