About the Property
Near the Santa Rosa Golf & Country Club. Two bedrooms, 1 and 1/2 baths.
It sits on nearly 1/2 acre in a semi-rural setting in the Santa Rosa Golf & Country Club subdivision; right off Occidental Road and minutes from downtown Sebastopol and Santa Rosa, Highways 12 and 101.
Vast western sky views paint a different portrait every night as the sun goes down over mountains that grace the Pacific coastline. Sometimes a soft watercolor. Sometimes the bold, thick colors of oil on canvas.
Inside you’ll find unique and inviting open-plan architecture - a balance between public and private spaces. Where arching beams, cathedral ceilings, and golden skylights enfold a mixture of Family Furnishings, Asian Antiques, and Original Art reflective of life in Northern California. The large Great Room provides a comfy gathering place.
During the day, enjoy a meal on the Patio or in the Great Room, overlooking the lush rolling grass and trees that dot the golf course. Listen for and watch the hummingbirds who dine at Sunset House feeders year-round.
As dusk turns to night, listen to Great Horned and Barn owls as darkness deepens under a star-studded sky and the air grows crisp among oak, redwood and cypress trees.
Sunset House is steps away from vineyards and farms, ranches and forests, historic towns and cities with many specialty shops carrying irresistible, locally made food, wine, beer, cider, and incredible art.
With easy access to Highways 12, 116 and 101, it is an ideal spot from which to see what the region has to offer. San Francisco is an hour's drive south down Highway 101, with many interesting stops along the way, including Petaluma, Tiburon, Sausalito, Muir Woods, Stinson Beach and Mill Valley. Kayaks and canoes can be rented at the Monte Rio beach on the Russian River during the summer months. Or take the scenic drive to Bodega Bay. Enjoy its good seafood restaurants, and see where Alfred Hitchcock's 'The Birds' was filmed.
An ideal location for those attending events at the private Santa Rosa Golf and Country Club -- weddings, parties, and tournaments.
“This is the chosen spot of all the earth as far as nature is concerned” wrote Luther Burbank.

- Access to Laguna de Santa Rosa walking trails is nearby. Or you can start a great bike ride right from the house. If you want to do some mall shopping try Santa Rosa Plaza. Macy's and Sear's are located there along with a wide array of smaller stores and a Food Court (try a 'Hot Dog on a Stick' with fresh lemonade and you'll be hooked!). Oliver's Market is ideal for groceries, hot meals, it's salad bar and excellent produce, meats, breads and other local items. Try their Gravenstein Applesauce and Juice and pay tribute to the area's heritage as 'apple country', where flavorful Gravenstein Apples reigned before vineyards became prominent. I love Oliver's! 'Cheap eats' -- my favorite is Mombo Pizza on Hwy 116. It's near Pacific Market and Sebastopol Hardware, the best hardware store I know! Try their Greek Pizza adorned with artichoke hearts, olives and feta cheese or their basic cheese pizza which is awesome value. And don't forget to tip the hard-working, friendly staff....moreless

About the owner: This is a photo of a female Anna's hummingbird according to Tim Stewart of Wild Birds Unlimited, Santa Rosa.
Why the Owner Chose Santa Rosa, CA, USA:
Sunset House sits on nearly 1/2 acre overlooking the lush greenery, oaks and cypress trees of the Santa Rosa Golf & Country Club surrounded by farms and vineyards. It is an ideal spot for those attending events at the Santa Rosa Golf & Country Club, and for touring the wine country, the Russian River or simply to relax, unwind and regenerate.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Stunning western views day and night. Inspiring open plan architecture with arching beams and cathedral ceilings. Family furnishings, local art, and antiques. Centrally located for wine country exploration. Private and peaceful -- situated on nearly 1/2 acre. Near the private Santa Rosa Golf & Country Club; the perfect place to stay when attending club events. Well-tended gardens full of roses and other perennials. They include David Austin's Abraham Darby, Tamora, and Benjamin Britten, in addition to About Face, Distant Drums, Julia Child, Pope John Paul, Marilyn Monroe, Barbra Streisand, Queen Elizabeth and Hot Cocoa. Home to hummingbirds year-round who dine at Sunset House feeders. According to Tim Stewart from Wild Birds Unlimited in Santa Rosa, they are most likely 'Anna's Hummingbirds and from their coloring the two photos on this listing indicate that they are female Anna's. Anna's hummingbirds are not migratory, so they live here year-round. When you get familiar with their chirp you will hear them in the trees when feeding time nears. If you are quiet, don't move and are lucky, you will see them feed. They can be a few feet away from you, suspended in mid-air by the fast beating of wings and are facinating to watch.
