Shelter in place somewhere special
If you love redwoods and have dreamed of having a place to live among them, seeing this property has to be your first priority.
Old growth redwood trees are rare in Sonoma County. The logging industry spent nearly a century logging and logging again. Our forests remain healthy and growing…but young. More than 100 redwood trees in the cabin area have never been logged as far as anyone knows. The largest, named Johnson, is 35 feet in circumference and 9 feet in diameter. Some are at least 250 feet tall.
Check out your cabin books at the library or the posts on Instagram. This one is the crème de la crème. From the broad board floors to the log accents, this has the cabin elements people love.
Little Rancheria Creek is the dominant water feature passing close enough to hear and see the water from the cabin’s widows. There’s an 8 foot deep swimming hole adjacent to the home. During the winter rains there are multiple waterfalls within walking distance from the house. Domestic water is from clear unspoiled spring water from one of the 3 springs on the property.
Climate and terrain two-fer
This property has two climates, 700ft. at the home where it stays cool in the summer and 1200ft. at the top with the meadows and planting land that shares the hotter days you expect in the Rockpile and Dry Creek areas.
- 10 minutes from Lake Sonoma
- 35 Minutes from Healdsburg or Geyserville
- Exceptionally private
Highest and best use
Great for a vacation home, yet a family of 4 currently lives in the home year round. There is no PG&E, but there is phone service available from an internet provider. It would be straightforward to add a photovoltaic system with battery backup to power the house and keep the generator just for emergencies.
