Sonoma, CA

Welcome to Patten Street on Sonoma’s historic East side. Sitting on over ¼ acre, this masterfully restored, gated home feels like a jewel box set in a gorgeous garden. Stroll up the walkway and onto the covered porch where you can greet your neighbors as they pass by. The porch heaters create a cozy seating spot all year long.

Inside the front door you’ll find great room living, complete with a spacious kitchen and dining for family gatherings and entertaining. The open living area has a cozy fireplace. Glass doors lead from the dining area to the stunning yard. Each bedroom features closets with high quality custom interiors. The bathrooms are masterfully designed with tumbled stone and handsome vanities. The primary bedroom, with high ceilings, has direct access to the sun filled patio.

The garden is professionally designed and well maintained with plants that flower all year ‘round. The iron pergola gracefully covers a raised deck for outdoor dining. The exercise pool doubles as a “cocktail” pool with a bench all the way around the inside. The yard is a delightful retreat all year round.

Sonoma’s historic plaza is just 4 blocks away, with restaurants, shops, music and wine tasting rooms. The famous Tuesday night Farmers’ Market and Jazz Society concerts fill the air with happy sounds all summer long. Venture a bit further and you’ll discover paved paths and country hiking trails up and down hills and through vineyards.

Come to Sonoma and live the good life!
