152 Newcomb Street • Sonoma, CA
$2,850,000.00

This fresh interpretation of a traditional farmhouse, within city limits, offers a rare  “town and country” living experience. With enough land for citrus and vegetable gardens as well as a hobby vineyard and olive orchard -- both of which produce enough fruit for wine and oil – the property is located only blocks from the historic downtown plaza in one of Sonoma’s favorite neighborhoods.

The two-story home with wrap around porch is graciously appointed and light-filled, upgraded with quality finishes that have been impeccably maintained. Surrounded by magnificent gardens that have been called “a gift to the neighborhood,” the current owners are master gardeners who envisioned and created a beautiful and bountiful landscape for the home.

Starting with sustainable gardening practices including three underground bioswales that protect and repurpose groundwater in our modern environment, the gardens are designed with a variety of plantings, both ornamental and edible, that thrive in our local climate. Divided into garden “rooms” unified by color or theme, there are delightful surprises throughout the grounds including a fragrance garden tucked beneath windows to carry lovely scents into the home, a kitchen garden filled with herbs and edible flowers just outside the back door, raised vegetable beds, a citrus garden, fruit trees, a small vineyard and a stately olive orchard that shimmers silvery-green leaves.

With a variety of spaces to gather and relax, this property is meant for outdoor living. From the charming front porch, to the trellised poolside sitting area, to a fire pit surrounded by grape vines, and a garden gazebo for dining, there are places to unwind daily, taking in the tranquil gardens. This house is also ideal for entertaining. A manicured lawn and travertine patio offer a space large enough to host gatherings for as many as 100 people.

A bright and spacious kitchen with center island is the heart of the home, where the bounty of the outdoors and the pleasure of good company come together. A stylish mudroom/laundry/pantry brings function and organization with a bit of panache while the dining area and great room are sunny and cheerful. The main space has high ceilings, a beautiful hearth with gas fireplace, and French doors to the pool area, creating a central gathering area that ties all aspects of the home into a cohesive and inviting space. A good-sized office overlooks the front gardens and offers a quiet, private room to work.

Upstairs there are three bedrooms plus an annex room and large storage room. The serene master suite overlooks the back gardens and offers expansive views of the Mayacama mountains. The suite’s generous floorplan includes a sitting area, fireplace, dressing room and master bath with dual sinks and vanity as well as a soaking tub. A shared hall bath has a charming, functional design that offers privacy while maximizing the shared space. Both hall bedrooms have built-in closet storage, delightful views, ample sunlight and spacious footprints.

A detached two-story “carriage house” is home to the 2-car garage, studio/office, and a 1 bedroom/1 bath upstairs apartment.
