When most buyers are in the market for a new home they may be looking for something special – even if it’s something that may not be particularly out of the ordinary, like a wine cellar or swimming pool.

Vintage homes have always been a weak spot of mine, especially any California Arts & Craft, Craftsman, Victorians, or Bungalows. Cloverdale has always seemed like an area that would be home to ranches and rustic styles, so when I caught site of this 1903 Craftsman home I was ecstatic.

If you own classic cars, you more than likely know how to work on them, too. It’s a must to have the basics down — at the very least — because anything earlier than the 1960s is going to have a hiccup or two at the most inopportune times. Knowing how to successfully push start a vehicle and …

In a general sense, when a house is described as ‘custom’ there’s a preconception that it’s going to have something really one-off that other houses in the neighborhood don’t- such as a screening room or wine cellar. For this house, it means more along the lines of granite countertops n the …

Sonoma County is becoming a hot real estate area, which has pushed home prices up in more of the tourist-heavy areas like Santa Rosa and Healdsburg. This charming single-family house in Cloverdale strays away from the nearly million dollar price tags that so many houses are asking through th…

If you live in Sonoma County, you know that it’s surrounded by natural beauty: old-growth redwoods, the Russian river, marine habitats in Bodega Bay, and hiking trails everywhere.

Sebastopol never fails to surprise me, and this one bedroom single-family home is on my list of the unexpected finds. 3.1 million sounds like a lot of money for a one-bedroom home – and it would be, except this house is built on 2 parcels that total 42.79 acres. There are two finished cabins…

When I think of homes built in California during the 1940s, I think of Mid-Century modern and clean, simplistic lines. This home in the redwoods isn’t what I would think of, but the interior has been updated to reflect the Mid-Century aesthetic, while the views from the deck are as rustic an…

Windsor is a relatively young town. Founded in 1855, it didn’t start really start growing until the 1980s, finally becoming incorporated in 1992. Fast-forward to 2018, and many of the homes showing up on the listings have all the comforts a young family (or couple) could want – a spacious ba…

This clean mid-century home in Healdsburg is a charming find – especially with a pool in the backyard. Though this part of Sonoma County is fairly temperate, the summer days can get hot, and a pool to relax in always sounds good.

From sprawling vineyards to geodisc houses, Sebastopol has long been home to unique architecture – this 1934 custom single family home has a lot to offer for anyone who wants to be surprised in each room.

Guerneville is one of my favorite ‘escapes’ in Sonoma County – close to Armstrong Woods and the Russian river, it always feels like there’s no possible way to be too stressed when surrounded by nature on all sides.

Whenever I see a house described as ‘Victorian,’ I get giddy; ready to see some original lathe and plaster or marquetry on the floors. This house, however, was built in 1993 – far too new to be a Victorian - but it’s lovely nonetheless.

Sebastopol is a small town with a lot of imagination. The love for all things creative can often be seen in the architecture, especially when it comes to single-family homes. It’s often not just about the house, it’s usually also about how it interacts with the nature around it and what the …

If you want to see breathtaking sunsets on a nearly daily basis, Bodega Bay may be where you want to buy your next home. Yes, the mornings almost always start off foggy, but when the marine layer lifts, the sun sparkling off the Pacific Ocean turns the fog into a distant memory.
