We love the 'best of all worlds' location.Rural setting but not remote. We are pretty much centered in WEST SONOMA county. Lots of wineries with tasting rooms( including one by appointment on our street) within 20 minutes drive. Three miles to downtown Sebastopol and twenty minutes to the coast.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: We are a Bay Area family,grandparents of three families each with two kids. All of us enjoy this vacation home when we can get away. Not luxury but very comfortable for a relaxed vacation.

Why the Owner Chose Sebastopol, CA, USA:
We bought this home to be close to wineries, hiking and ocean but also for the beautiful gardens and trails that are on the property. While the home has been updated, it is still casual and comfortable. We enjoy having our grandchildren visit and they enjoy it too.
