    Description

    This ranch-style California craftsman home is located on a quiet country lane surrounded by majestic oaks and tall conifers. The property is beautifully-landscaped, very private and adjacent to a wildlife preserve and a large rhodendrum nursery. The house is a comfortable vacation home with a hot tub, billiard table, movie room and a 600 square foot deck. 

    Four miles away is Sebastopol, a small town of about 8,000 known for artists, locavore foods, apples, grapes and a charming downtown with breweries, restaurants, wine tasting and a movie theatre. Ten miles away is Santa Rosa, with museums and shopping malls. Twelve miles away is the Pacific Ocean and San Francisco is an hour away. 

    The compactness of the house is offset by large windows that gives one the feeling of being outdoors. Seven skylights brighten the back of the house while nearby trees keep the house surprisingly cool on a hot day. 

    Every room has been completely remodeled by the current owner. Cherrywood cabinetry, baseboards and window trim give a warm country touch. The kitchen is small but efficient and well-equipped. Interesting artwork by local artists adorn the walls. 

    For entertainment, there is a hot tub that easily holds five people, an 8-foot pool table, wifi, a 46-inch TV in the living room, as well as a separate TV room/office with a love seat. 

    There are two very friendly cats that come and go freely. Guests will be asked to replenish their food and water, though other arrangements are available. 

    This is a real home, our sole private residence, but it is very resort like and there is much to entertain.

The turn to the house is about 4 miles to the west from the exit and about another mile from the turn off of Hwy 116. There is a shuttle bus from San Francisco International Airport (SFO) that takes you to Rohnert Park, 5 miles away. There is no rail service in the area (coming sometime in 2017) and very limited bus service.
