This beautifully renovated, 110-year old classic California bungalow will brighten your days with museum-quality art, colorfully decorated rooms and luxurious personal amenities. Located on one of the best streets in the historic section of this upscale village, you'll find just the right balance of privacy and activity. Enjoy your morning coffee, or afternoon Zinfandel, on the wrap-around front porch overlooking the shady, picket-fenced front yard. Stroll to dinner while enjoying a brilliant sunset. Or, if you want a break from Healdsburg's famous restaurants, throw open the french doors, cookout on the outdoor gas grill in the privacy-fenced, grassy backyard and dine on the romantic back deck, under the candle-lit chandelier. But beware, after a few relaxing evenings in this exceptional home, you'll want to stay forever.
The lovely home comprises 1500 sq ft, every inch of it having been recently upgraded. The restful master bedroom has a turkish four-poster, queen-size bed with crisp linens, a private bathroom with shower and plenty of closet room. The sunny, second bedroom opens through french doors onto the backyard and redwood deck and features a full-size bed, also with high-quality linens and memory-foam top. The second bathroom features a full bathtub/shower combination.
For afternoon naps, or quiet evenings at home, the living room has an outrageously comfortable sofa--guaranteed to make you relax. The room also features a sculptured stone coffee table, and paintings from some of California's best up-and-coming artists. A collection of art and decor books are available to peruse. And for chilly evenings, you can warm up in front of a gas fire from the mahogany and marble fireplace.
The formal dining area directly adjoining the living room, features an italian walnut table with hand-painted inlay. The table can be expanded to seat six diners.
The great room at the center of the house comprises the media center and the kitchen. Inside a hand-carved, brazilian mahogany armoire, is the television, router and Comcast control box. The Comcast service includes high-speed wifi, premium cable channels and pay-per-view movies.
The kitchen is small but workable, with granite countertops, large country sink and bright morning light. It is equipped with everything you need to create your culinary favorites--including high quality cookware, tableware and even cookbooks. All the bases are more than covered: gas range and oven, microwave, refrigerator with icemaker and water dispenser, dishwasher, coffeemaker and even a Breville toaster. So, if you want to cook on your vacation, we won't stop you. The kitchen has a granite bar with two barstools for casual dining and snacking.
This home also has a Library/Office that opens through french doors to the back deck. It features a pair of art deco, leather easy chairs from the 1920s, populated book shelves and desk. The room can serve as an office or just a relaxing place to read.
And you don't have to leave your canine best friend behind when you vacation at this house. Well-behaved, small dogs (2 maximum) are welcome, with an extra deposit. The back yard is secure and dog safe. Plus, there are two great pet-supply stores in town who give free cookies to visiting dogs.
If this sounds perfect, it is. This is a lovely, turnkey property in the paradise known as Healdsburg, the place to spend well-deserved vacations.
