Large, quiet home between Sebastopol and Forestville and right above Graton. It is 10 minutes away from the Russian River wine country. Lovely and large stone patio in the backyard looks out upon the horses. This house is very popular for family reunions, families on vacation with children, animal lovers, and people visiting the area for special events such as weddings and graduations.

Four bedrooms, two bathrooms, fully appointed kitchen, inviting living room and a large,open back yard full of birds. The master bedroom includes its own, remodeled bathroom with tile shower. Two of the other three bedroom include queen beds and the last bedroom has two twin beds. There are also a queen sized inflatable beds if you so choose.

The kitchen opens out onto the back stone patio and yard. There is a barbecue under the redwood tree. A wide variety of birds make their rounds through the yard.

Friendly goats and chickens on the property add to country feel. In the summer, a large vegetable garden out front. Staying in this vineyard bordered house give you the authentic feel of what Sonoma County has to offer.

Along the side of the house is a large corral with two milking goats and their babies. Depending on the season, we offer you fresh goat's milk, eggs, and vegetables from the garden.

A caretaker lives next door. She is available to assist you in any way.

What is fascinating about this part of Sonoma County is the constant evolution of food and wineries. Just within a few mile radius there are several renowned wineries. Graton and Sebastopol both offer a wide range of culinary and shopping opportunities.

From a recreational standpoint, there are many beautiful bike rides, some on roads, some off-road and some on dedicated bike paths. The Russian River is nearby with all the water activities it is famous for. Armstrong Grove has its 1,000 year old trees to roam around and explore. Santa Rosa, home of Charlie Brown and Snoopy, has a wonderful ice skating rink left to us by Charles Shultz himself.

People have visited our house for a variety of reason: vacation, Russian River, wine country, weddings, Bodega Bay, visit children at Sonoma State University, family reunions. When you inquire into our property, please let me know what brings you to the area. We find it gratifying to know all the wonderful reason people are enjoying our house.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1973

About the owner: I am a bilingual math teacher and father of an 14 year old boy. We live in San Francisco. I grew up in this Sebastopol house. My favorite activities include water sports, kempo karate, and skiing with my son. I spend as much time as possible in Sonoma County because I find it so beautiful and interesting.

Why the Owner Chose Sebastopol, CA, USA:
I love Sonoma County. I love the Russian River area, Sebastopol and the coast. I love riding my bike around the area and discovering new restaurants and wineries. I also love just hanging out on our property, watching the birds and relaxing under the redwood tree I planted nearly 40 years ago.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This house is in a wonderful location. It is 5 minutes from Sebastopol in one direction and 5 minutes from the Russian River in the other. Right in front of our house is Mom's Apple Pies, a restaurant and bakery founded by the mother of one of my high school classmates. And the garden that our caretaker puts in each summer is amazing.
