Property description

Walking distance to Railroad Square and other downtown Santa Rosa areas, and a quick drive to dozens of wineries, enjoy all that Sonoma County has to offer. This 4 bedroom, 2.5 bath, 2100 sq. ft. house is centrally located, making it easy to get to many Sonoma County destinations easily. The colorful and fun decor has a World Traveler theme throughout the house. Enjoy movies on the projector in the living room or watch them on the large TV in the upstairs lounge.

There are four bedrooms: The Gallery Room (with a king-sized futon foam core mattress and en suite bathroom); The Mediterranean Room (with a queen bed); The Nautical Room (with a double bed and desk); The Parisian Room (with a double bed).

The kitchen is well-stocked with a variety of cooking utensils/pots and pans/microwave/toaster/coffee maker/electric kettle. Kitchen appliances include dishwasher, 5 burner stove/oven and large refrigerator. The house has an excellent heating system (radiant) with four separate thermostats. The laundry room has an extra large washer and a dryer.

In the back yard, there is an outdoor grill, picnic table that can easily seat ten people and a fire pit with chairs for six.

Each bedroom and bathroom has a decor theme, with whimsical touches throughout. We have traveled more than many, having spent a year in India and a year in Ireland, and there are photos/lamps/pictures/other decor brought back from our adventures scattered around the house.

There is an extensive library of DVD's available for viewing (blockbuster/rom com/sci fi/fantasy/art house/family) on the projector (in the living room) or on the large TV in the upstairs lounge. There is also a wide range of books available (on the living room bookshelves) for reading. The stereo downstairs has an excellent sound system (for movies and music) and an internet radio player. WiFi is available throughout the house. There is NO cable TV.

Santa Rosa Creek/Prince Memorial Greenway runs within two blocks of the house; it is a wonderful trail for walking/running/biking.

Our onsite manager (who lives on the property in the guest house) will welcome you to your home away from home, show you how to use various appliances and electronics, and be available for any questions or problems.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: We moved to Santa Rosa after spending several years in downtown San Francisco. We needed a place to raise our young children and Sonoma County seemed a perfect place to land. We recently moved to NYC because my husband started a new job in Manhattan. I love traveling and meeting new people. We spent a year in Ireland and a year in India and our Santa Rosa home contains many objects (photos/pictures/lamps/decor) obtained during our overseas adventures. We love California and our Sonoma County life, but we had to jump at the chance to experience NYC, as well. Before having children I had several careers (dress design, sales and marketing). We decided that I would stop working full-time while raising our four children. I am currently working on my first Young Adult novel, a coming-of-age story about an 11 YO boy living as an expat in India.

Why the Owner Chose Santa Rosa, CA, USA:
Moving here from SF, I was looking for walkability. I also wanted to be on a street that wasn't very busy, since our children were very small at the time. We chose Santa Rosa because of its perfect weather (even more perfect than SF), its proximity to SF (only an hour north, so still easy to enjoy various cultural attractions like symphony and opera) and its amazing lifestyle (easy access to outdoor activities, great food, great wine, the coast, festivals, etc).

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This house in particular is a perfect location to launch from if you really want to enjoy Sonoma County. Right off Hwy 101 and Hwy 12, you can get to most parts of the county quickly and easily. Enjoy the benefits of a city (close to shops and restaurants, walkability) while also being in the middle of an amazing agricultural area. Santa Rosa offers trails, parks, museums, Snoopy's Home Ice, excellent restaurants, Imwalle's (local farmer's shop), Oliver's (local grocer-- like Whole Foods, but nicer staff). So much to see and do, really close by!
