                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1992

                      About the owner: We're not interested in retiring so Walt learned about grape growing and reinvented himself from engineer to grape grower. Barbara is a writer & product developer of educational products for several publishers. Writers never stop...so the writing continues. Our 5 grandkids think we live in the best place--vineyards to run through, trees to climb, rocks to throw and a river and swim beach a half mile away. We agree--we love living in Healdsburg.

                      Why the Owner Chose Healdsburg:
                      Healdsburg is a town you quickly fall in love with -- we sure did! Our 25 acre property was a fixer-upper with a compound of 4 homes, 2 barns, no landscaping and 20 acres of unplanted farmland. Our 4 kids thought we'd lost our minds when we sold our beautiful home nearby and bought this property. Now that the houses are refurbished, the landscaping is gorgeous and the vines are in...they 'get it.' They say 'we had vision'...we say, 'we're living the wine country dream and loving it.' We offer affordable lodging for visitors in our upscale wine country area -- they can save money and dine in or zip to a nearby restaurant in less than 5 minutes.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Location is everything -- we are 1 & 1/2 miles from Healdsburg Plaza. We enjoy the same activities that our guests enjoy: nearby golf, wineries galore, Healdsburg Plaza, great restaurants and near perfect weather. Our guests are invited to walk through our private vineyards. We're happy to share info with our guests about the vineyard and the area. Staying in a private home with friends or family gives you privacy and togetherness that can't be found in hotels or B&Bs filled with other people. Many guests become regulars and stay here again and again.Healdsburg is a wonderful town that has a special place in the hearts of so many people. Thankfully, there's Healdsburg.
