              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2000

              About the owner: I have lived in Sonoma since 2000 and absolutely love the warm and friendly community that it is. I am a San Francisco native, who has traveled all over the world, and has made friends from the mountains of Nepal to the south seas of Tahiti. I am interested in all cultures, their traditions, foods, and music. Professionally, I specialize in marketing, sales, account management, and public relations. I have written three memoir-cookbooks books currently on Amazon and am presently editing the next one, all part of The Lobanovsky Family Table E-series. With a focus on Russian American culture and international cuisine, I write a weekly blog to highlight news that is off the beaten track, or little known facts that link America and Russia. I have planned events of all kinds for both personal and public celebrations. I offer concierge services to guests wishing to get the most out of their Sonoma visit. My goal is to make your stay as memorable and enjoyable as possible, not only in my home but in the wine country at large.

              Why the Owner Chose Sonoma:
              This property offers privacy, the natural, serene beauty of an established, park-like garden, yet is 10 minutes away by foot (even less by car) from many amenities and services that Sonoma offers. While parking is available at your gate, you don't need a car to take advantage of anything around the Sonoma plaza, the theater, world-class restaurants, wine tasting room, and wineries. In short: convenience, tranquility, beauty and comfort at a luxury location.
