Why Nicholas Freedman chose Petaluma
Found this place on my favorite lunch bike ride. Chance favors the prepared and I was ready to jump - this place had not changed hands in 70 years. All my neighbors are 4 generation ranches - I totally lucked out. The place was a mess, and polished up so well - now with working barns from the 1800, a 1920 granny unit that is my office, outbuildings and a fully renovated farmhouse... and the bunkhouse I am renting to you I hope... the place is a dream come true. It has so many things I love, old barns, cool forests, rock walls, owls, big views, wildflowers, all sorts of critters, spring water... and so much more..
What makes this cottage unique
Out in the country and so close to town - great meals near and yet here tucked away it is so quiet and beautiful - seeing the landscape change as the hay is cut on the next hill, the grapes going down the road, friendly neighbors always waving - many nights I hear the owls hooting. I pick and eat from the orchard and my garden... eating my own chickens eggs. Work out - just walk up the dead end and from the top see San Fran and the bay. Washer and Dryer (and a pinch a kitchen) may be made available to you for your stay - just ask.
