Stars and sun! Dogs welcome. This home from 1947 sits on a large, private, sunny half-acre. It is within walking distance to the Russian River and the town of Guerneville. Many upgrades have been made to the home while most of the original charm remains. There is a sunny deck with outdoor dining for six people. The large sunny front yard is a magical place to stroll and observe the many native plants, fruit trees and herbs. Behind the house is a woodland area with a giant olive tree and redwoods. There are several great, large sandy beaches nearby that only the locals know about (just ask). The property is great for stargazing and there is a new high-power telescope for your use. Look for the giant, old olive and redwood trees in the back and many fruit trees, herbs and flowers in the front. This is an old farm house-style home. Some of the surfaces are new and sparkling and some of the surfaces are historic and rustic, the home is especially clean with new dishwasher, new LG washer/dryer, new towels and sheets. Bedroom 1 has new carpet, new bed and new mattress. Great charm and natural light throughout. Guests will have access to the entire property except for a small caretakers cabin. The caretaker is usually not there and always very quiet. This home was built in 1947 for a widow by 2 local craftsmen carpenters. Please respect this historic old home like the old lady she is. Original artwork by the homeowner is on the walls and some of the paint is on the floor. UPDATE: this is not a party house, please observe quiet hours, no noise after 10 pm. The homeowners association, the Sonoma Conty Sheriff and the host now have a zero tolerance policy for noise after 10 pm. This is a place for quiet retreat. The home owner will be off property but lives in nearby Monte Rio.
