About the Property

Bungalow, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath (Sleeps 4)

This charming bungalow in downtown Sonora will make you feel like you are right at home! This two bedroom, one bath abode is surrounded by a quaint yard with a slate patio in the back yard, perfect for a BBQ or just a quiet place to read. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need to prepare an enjoyable meal. The living room features comfortable furniture, a flat screen TV and built-in bookshelves filled with an assortment of books for your enjoyment. U-verse High Speed internet is also available, providing Netflix for movies and Pandora for music...also connect any of your devices as well. The dining room provides a lovely space featuring built in cabinets and wonderful lighting from the many windows. From the front porch, you can get a bit of a view of downtown Sonora and it is a great place to enjoy a morning cup of coffee or an evening glass of wine. One bedroom has a queen bed and the second bedroom has two twin beds...both rooms offer TV's. The laundry room, off of the kitchen, providing a washer and dryer. This home features street parking, with a short set of steps up to the front entrance. During the summer, the Sonora 'warm Indian summer nights' can be quite spectacular.


Location, Location, Location. The home is a lovely 5 min. walk to the heart of town where you will have many choices of wonderful restaurants, coffee shops, shopping and specialty boutiques as well as many antique stores. Downtown Sonora also offers the incredible Stage 3 Theater where you can enjoy an outstanding play. You can visit the local Historical Museum to learn about Sonora's colorful gold country history. Every Saturday morning, May thru October, stroll down to the Farmers Market and take home organic produce, baked goods and local crafts. March thru December Central Sierra Arts Council has their '2nd Saturday Arts Night' where downtown art galleries, shops and eateries celebrate the arts. In the winter you are above the fog and close enough for an afternoon of skiing at two different resorts, Dodge Ridge or Bear Valley.

With so many fun destinations and adventures close by, I truly believe choosing this comfy home for your vacation stay in Sonora will be Perfect! (City Permit #TI-0006)

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: Hi my name is Christina I have worked independently for 22yrs as a hair stylist in downtown. In my spare time I volunteer with Tuolumne Co. Sheriff's SAR (search and rescue) . I invite you to visit Sonora and see the many reasons why I feel it's a truly lovely community.

Why the Owner Chose Sonora, CA, USA:
In 1980 I moved to Sonora from San Diego Co. Though I missed the ocean and beaches, I quickly fell in love with the beauty and tranquility that Tuolumne Co. offered. I attended the local community college, set up my business and started putting down roots. The next step was a home. When I found my bungalow I feel instantly in love with it. It is the perfect place to come to at the end of the day, be it work or play!

The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
Being downtown is such a treat. Walking to restaurants, wine bars, theater. I am so proud to offer my home as a romantic vacation retreat or family get away. I know you will love to stay here for a long weekend or an extended stay. You'll find plenty to do – or maybe you'd just like breakfast in bed!
