VINTAGE SONOMA COTTAGE SHINES INSIDE AND OUT
IN TOWN OASIS CLOSE TO EVERYTHING
Originally built in the early 1900s, this lovely cottage has been lovingly updated both inside and out. Gorgeous finishes and pristine spaces come together with French doors, abundant outdoor space, and a charming front porch to welcome Wine Country’s indoor/outdoor lifestyle.
Just blocks from the historic Sonoma Plaza this home is infused with natural light that floods the gleaming interior. Highlighted by beautiful wide plank, bleached walnut flooring, the open floor plan breathes new life into this vintage cottage. A spacious living room flows naturally to the dining room and kitchen beyond. French doors with sidelights create a wall of glass in the dining room with lovely views of the back yard.
The state-of-the-art kitchen is a model of efficiency with Cambria natural stone countertops and GE Monogram stainless steel appliances including a professional stove and extra quiet Zephyr hood. Beautiful country cabinets are abundant and extra deep for lots of storage. An appliance garage features a coffee station while a pull-out pantry is a fabulous bonus for dry goods. Making use of American-made products whenever possible, the kitchen remodel includes a Shaw farmhouse sink as well as a Waterstone faucet and cabinet hardware. A laundry closet with full-sized washer and dryer, a powder room and access to the carport round out the kitchen area.
The two bedrooms are each en suite and can function as two individual master suites. One enjoys views of the back yard and a huge walk-in closet outfitted in California Closet built-ins. The other bedroom suite has an angled ceiling and overlooks the private front yard. Each of the remodeled bathrooms has been done in dove gray tile with a mosaic tile floor and Restoration Hardware cabinetry.
In the front yard, tall fencing for privacy and numerous trees create a lush courtyard. Table grapes and fruit trees – including a nectarine, apple and citrus – provide tasty produce while palm trees and other shrubbery add greenery to the landscape. Fragrant wisteria weaves its way along the front of the welcoming porch.
In the backyard, numerous outdoor entertaining areas make for a festive space. A large deck is constructed from 100-year-old redwood repurposed from elsewhere in the home. A gravel dining area leads to a shady gazebo. The hot tub occupies a secluded corner of the yard adjacent to a former children’s playhouse, converted into an adorable storage unit. Quiet HVAC to keep you the perfect temperature all year round. The artist studio across the lawn area awaits all your artistic endeavors.
With charm, designer flair and fabulous indoor/outdoor feel, 240 W. MacArthur is the perfect Wine Country retreat.
