Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: I am a retired licensed general contractor. My wife is also retired. We are both originally from Chicago, and moved out to Northern California back in the 70s. I enjoy baking bread in our pizza oven, hiking, pouring wine at a local winery, traveling and cooking. My wife is an artist who dabbles in oil painting, mosaics and ceramics. We both enjoy cooking, traveling and visiting the fantastic local Sonoma wineries and many excellent restaurants. We can offer lots of suggestions and recommendations for local attractions.

Why the Owner Chose Petaluma, CA, USA:
The first time I saw this property, I fell in love with the views of the Sonoma hills. It reminded me of traveling and hiking through Ireland and England.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Seeing lots of stars at night. Watching the sun and the full moon come up. Fresh eggs from our chicken coop during the Spring and Summer. Harvesting fresh vegetables and fruit from our gardens. Sitting quietly in our peaceful rock garden or swinging in the hammock. Staring out at the views of the Sonoma mountains. Reading on the covered back deck. Making homemade pizzas in our wood fired pizza oven. Smelling the lavender in the summer and jasmine in the spring.
