Sebastopol farmhouse description
Our charming vintage farmhouse is a romantic, restful retreat, an escape from noise and air pollution. Freshly brewed coffee or tea in the morning on the deck or in the orchard, sipping a favorite beverage in the late afternoon, listening to the local owl, seeing the 'bambis' at twilight to feed: these are the pleasures of being in the country. We are still close in enough to take advantage of the extraordinary local restaurants. A gas grill is available on the deck should you want to grill your own supper. The home itself is 1000 square feet on one level. Living room is bright and spacious with views from every window. Sofa, coffee table and oversize club chairs furnish the room with a casual, comfortable ambiance for reading, surfing the net, listening to music or just hanging out; family room is adjacent to the kitchen. We have a 46 inch television with local cable which is also hooked up to wifi for viewing Netflix or other subscription programs, as well as a hardwired USB outlet charging station. Enjoy television from the leather club chair or loveseat in the family room or watch from the table in the eat-in kitchen. Even the cook gets a good vantage point. The bathroom features a tiled stall shower, claw foot tub, pedestal sink and closet shelving with space for personal cosmetics, extra fluffy towels as well as a full length mirror. The bathroom window is a private view of the orchard. Front bedroom has a queen bed, huge closet, bureau, mirror, slipper chair and door opens to the deck and view. Rear bedroom has 2 twin beds and an armoir, night stands, pendant lamps, small bench. Both bedrooms are wall to wall carpeted; each has 2 white fluffy robes and 2 pair of slippers. Linens are of the highest quality cottons and the duvets are down-alternative, for our feather-allergic guests. Pets have never been in this house. The deck runs along the entire back of the house. It overlooks the apple orchard and the eastern views. The deck has stairs directly to the orchard. Picnic in the orchard? At night you can see the twinkling lights of Santa Rosa in the distance. When there is no moon the stars dominate; when the moon is overhead the light is unbelievable, thus our name Full Moon Orchard. The moon hangs in the sky like our own nightlight. We are privileged to be located in one of the finest wine producing areas in the world...the Russian River Valley. Our sub area is called the Green Valley. The house is located within 5-20 minutes of a dozen world class wineries; wines of boutique producers . And mostly the best way to taste and experience these exclusive wines is at the winery itself, where it could be the owners who will welcome you to taste their products.

Full Moon Orchard is located on a rural lane approximately 2 miles from downtown Sebastopol. The house sits in the midst of a lush apple orchard of the heirloom, organic Gravensteins. The vacation rental is a charming retro 1926 farmhouse that we have updated with the most comfortable amenities but which is true to its rustic roots. The kitchen is convenient to the heart of the home with gas stove/oven, microwave oven, toaster, coffee maker, refrigerator and dishwasher; all cooking, serving and eating utensils and dishes are provided. We supply a lovely bottle of local wine and quality coffee and tea. The back deck overlooks our property, adjacent large orchards and vineyards with excellent views. The night sky is bright with stars; early mornings you'll spy hot air balloons in the view to the north. Our local, boutique wineries are some of the finest in the country. Most have regular tasting hours, others are open by appointment. Music venues are convenient to our property featuring live music throughout the year. There are well known local restaurants convenient to our property featuring a wide variety of Sonoma County produce and specialties. We are located a quick 15 min to the amazing Osmosis Day Spa in Freestone; 20 min to Bodega Bay; 30 minutes to Healdsburg. Rafting on the Russian River is a wonderful summer activity and accessible in another 20 minutes drive from our home.
Year Purchased: 1996
About the owner: We're John and Sherrill. We met at UC Berkeley and raised our family in Oakland, working in San Francisco and Oakland. Our place next door to the rental began life as its garage. In 2000 we had the structure rebuilt as a 2 story weekend escape from noise of the city. We are here as much as possible especially in the warmer months. Sebastopol is a friendly, small town place with a broad acceptance of tastes and lifestyles. Jeans are acceptable just about anywhere but the dining here is sophisticated. High quality food is grown and raised within a few miles. We have our own garden and enjoy tending to it and the other projects we have that come with owning in the country. Did I say we love it here?
