Property description

This beautifully renovated, 100-year old classic California bungalow will brighten your days with museum-quality art, colorfully decorated rooms and luxurious personal amenities. Located on one of the best streets in the historic section of this upscale village, you'll find just the right balance of privacy and activity. Enjoy your morning coffee, or afternoon Zinfandel, on the wrap-around front porch overlooking the shady, picket-fenced front yard. Stroll to dinner while enjoying a brilliant sunset. Or, if you want a break from Healdsburg's famous restaurants, turn on the sound system, throw open the french doors, cookout on the outdoor gas grill in the privacy-fenced, grassy backyard and dine on the romantic back deck, under the candle-lit chandelier. But beware, after a few relaxing evenings in this exceptional home, you'll want to stay forever.

The lovely home comprises 1500 sq ft, every inch of it having been recently upgraded. The restful master bedroom has a turkish four-poster, queen-size bed with crisp, sumptuous linens, a private bathroom with shower and plenty of closet room. The sunny, second bedroom opens through french doors onto the backyard and redwood deck and features a full-size bed, also with high-quality linens and memory-foam top. The second bathroom features a full bathtub/shower combination.

For afternoon naps, or quiet evenings at home, the living room has an outrageously comfortable sofa--guaranteed to make you relax. The room also features a pair of art deco, leather easy chairs from the 1920s, a sculptured stone coffee table, and paintings from some of California's best up-and-coming artists. A collection of art and decor books are available to peruse. And for chilly evenings, you can warm up in front of a gas fire from the mahogany and marble fireplace.

The formal dining area directly adjoining the living room, features an italian walnut table with hand-painted inlay. The table can be expanded to seat six diners.

The great room at the center of the house comprises the media center and the kitchen. Inside a hand-carved, brazilian mahogany armoire, is the television, DVD player, router and Comcast control box. The Comcast service includes high-speed wifi, premium cable channels and pay-per-view movies. All of this can be enjoyed fully horizontal on the handsome, Southwestern-style leather sofa.

The kitchen is small but workable, with granite countertops, large country sink and bright morning light. It is equipped with everything you need to create your culinary favorites--including high quality cookware, tableware and even cookbooks. All the bases are more than covered: gas range and oven, microwave, refrigerator with icemaker and water dispenser, dishwasher, coffeemaker and even a Breville toaster. So, if you want to cook on your vacation, we won't stop you. The kitchen has a granite bar with two barstools for casual dining and snacking.

This home also has a Library/Office that opens through french doors to the back deck. It features a sofabed, populated book shelves, and desk. The room can serve as an additional bedroom for one person, an office or just a relaxing place to read.

And you don't have to leave your canine best friend behind when you vacation at this house. Well-behaved, small dogs (2 maximum) are welcome, with an extra deposit. The back yard is secure and dog safe. Plus, there are two great pet-supply stores in town who give free cookies to visiting dogs.

If this sounds perfect, it is. This is a lovely, turnkey property in the paradise known as Healdsburg, the place to spend well-deserved vacations.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2009

About: This house is the beloved home of the owner, who is currently away producing the world premiere of her first rock musical. A writer, marketing consultant, singer and horse lover, the owner has chosen to share her precious crib rather than close it up for the duration of her absence. While for some allowing strangers into your home is unimaginable, the owner derives so much joy from her colorful, art-filled home, that she hopes others will share in that happy experience. She also cannot abide by 'no-pets' rules and hopes to change those unfriendly policies one place at a time.

Why Healdsburg:
From the moment I walked up to this house, I loved it. The front-porch and gigantic shade tree in the front yard hooked me before I ever when inside. While I've done extensive renovations, I've always liked the floor plan, as I prefer my living spaces to be free flowing, open and at the same time intimate. Having lots of light matters to me, so I enjoy the large windows and french doors.

The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
I enjoy sitting on the front porch, reading the paper and speaking to the people walking by. Healdsburg is a walker's town--it seems everyone walks, to the park, to movies, to restaurants. And, there are so many kinds of dogs getting walked. To my Scotties' delight, from our front porch, we see quite a variety on their way to Giorgi Park, a popular destination for dogs and their owners. And, of course, barking is mandatory. July 4th is a big day on my block, as it's the site of a huge block party extravaganza. Live bands, all kinds of BBQ, games, beer, wine, adults, kids--it's truly amazing--and it's all in front of my house. Since my front yard is picket-fenced, my 50 best friends and I drag out the lawn chairs and enjoy the party from our own private lawn. Way cool.
