Located in Sebastopol at the center of the Green valley appellation of Sonoma county is an unusual property that hosts its own habitat and small organic vineyard. The habitat includes a lake that hosts birds of every variety and a walkable path around the one mile perimeter. The estate home, while not state-of-the-art, is a well-loved gathering space that allows for large groups to come together and enjoy nature and the outdoors. Located just five minutes from town, it remains blissfully in nature. This unique sanctuary boasts a private recreational lake used by residents for boating, water skiing, stand-up paddling, canoeing and swimming bordering the Atascadero creek. The property also features a picturesque pool with a wood trellis and vineyard views. Minutes away from world class wine tasting, cuisine, & sightseeing along the rugged and picturesque Sonoma coast. The home features 4 bedrooms. The studio annex features bunk beds and fold-out futons as well as one double bed. One alcove is curtained for privacy with two twin beds for overflow sleeping areas. The open gallery-style interior of the home features a teak table that can seat 14 people with an overhead skylight. The media room features a 55" flatscreen TV with Apple TV, HDMI hookups, Chromecast, and a BluRay player. Catering for your meeting can be arranged.
