802 Towne Street Sonoma, CA
Turnkey Eastside Home with Enchanting Secret Garden
Living is easy in this prime eastside location near neighborhood parks and the downtown Sonoma Plaza. Lovingly cared for by its one original owner, this 3 bed/2 bath home plus guest cottage is situated on a spectacular corner lot and is a unique combination of spacious living areas and charmingly landscaped yard, while also being an ideal size for easy maintenance.
A shady front porch on a friendly corner lot is the welcoming entrance to this single family home. The main living spaces are brightened with warm, natural light, vaulted ceilings and oak floors. A formal dining or sitting area offers a perfect place for entertaining, but the heart of the home centers around an inviting great room with a wall of windows onto the enchanting back garden.
The cheerful, open-plan kitchen has ample storage and quality appliances including a 5-burner gas range. Recessed lighting as well as abundant natural light make this a welcoming place to gather, cook, play and work. Sharing a view of the garden is the adjacent family room with gas-burning fireplace – the finishing touch for a truly inviting gathering place for family and friends.
With 3 bedrooms and 2 baths, including a 1 bed/1 bath detached cottage, this home offers much flexibility depending on need and phase of life. Two bedrooms in the main house share a hall bath with shower/tub combo. A master bedroom with private access to the back garden has a large bathroom with double vanity, walk-in tile shower, private toilet, and generous double closet. The newly renovated 1 bed cottage has a full bath with tiled shower.
The entire parcel has been lovingly landscaped over the years thanks to the home’s original owner who was a master gardener. From a xeriscape front garden, to raised garden beds and trellised roses, olive trees and an espaliered apple, a Meyer lemon tree abundant with fruit, ornamental grasses, flowering shrubs and a lush green lawn, the yard is a darling hideaway and calls for continued TLC.
A clean, bright and orderly attached 2-car garage offers additional attic storage space with a pull down ladder.
