              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1978

              About the owner: We have owned our property in Sonoma County for 35 years. I have been a publisher of note cards and prints and I have two daughters 27 and 33 who grew up here but now live in Europe/Arizona. My studio is in a barn on the property and I own another house next door (not visible from the cottage) where we have had the same loyal tenants for 35 years. The property is surrounded by many acres of rural open space. The land below the house has fruit trees and a cottage style garden with lots of wonderful flowers which return years after with the seasons. Sometimes fresh tomatoes, herbs or other garden produce is available to guests. Very safe neighborhood and close to all local amenities. I have spent 30 years in sales, design and marketing in the business community in California and have many connections and resources available. To see some of my landscape images of our area at 'nautilusimages'. I had always wanted to be a 'tour guide!, but our vacation rental now allows me the opportunity to share this area I love with visitors. We welcome you to our land, your special place to stay.
