Why the Owner Chose Sonoma, CA, USA:
Why drive when you can walk to everything the Historic Sonoma Plaza has to offer? You are steps from local award winning restaurants, fabulous tasting rooms, intimate taverns and bars, our local theatre and Federally/State recognized historic and cultural resources such as the Sonoma Mission, General Vallejo's House and Museum. Don't forget our local bike shop is situated around the corner and visitors have access to miles of bike trails, and scenic roads approximate to award wining wineries. The property and home offers both a main two-bedroom two-bath home for groups but also provides a detached guest cottage for couples who want to visit friends but have private and distinctive sleeping quarters.
The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
Where can you find a charming 1890's victorian bungalow on 1/2 acre of land with a vineyard, tank house, separate cottage, and 2 blocks from Sonoma Plaza? Did I mention the gorgeous and expansive gardens and privacy? Oh yes...what about that deck that overlooks your own private vineyard? Did I mention the downtown location?
