About the owner: My husband and I moved to Sonoma County in 2003 and build our house and guest house on this 7 acre estate in the Russian River wine appellation of Sonoma Wine Country. We are retired professors and environmental scientist who were looking for up scale country living with an optimal climate. Since then we have designed developed acres of bio dynamic gardens based upon ecologically sustainable practices of permaculture. We have found a piece of heaven and look forward to sharing it with you.
Why the Owner Chose Sebastopol: West Sonoma County offers everything that you would want in an up scale and relaxing vacation: excellent wine tasting with hundreds of wineries to chose from, the Russian River which offers excellent swimming, kayaking and birding and the spectacular Sonoma Coast.

You get all of this in a year round mild climate, redwoods and wonderful hamlets for shopping and sightseeing.
