About this home's










This estate compound spans 4.99 acres in one of the most sought-after areas of West Petaluma.  Positioned right on the edge of the city limits and within the Urban Growth Boundary, this location offers all the amenities of country living, with easy access to the City center, commute options to the broader region, and multiple recreational activities.

The two-story farmhouse, which was built in 1907, features vintage character and modern conveniences with a wrap-around deck from which to enjoy the natural surroundings.  The open living room and dining room bring in views of lush greenery and allow natural light to flow in throughout the day. The original built-in hutches, wood paneling, fir flooring and bay windows add charm and warmth to the home. Two private spacious bedrooms and bathrooms are found on the main level. The fully remodeled kitchen boasts stunning gray granite counters, stainless steel KitchenAid appliances, a tile floor, an island for casual dining and entertaining, and French Doors opening to the wrap-around deck. Upstairs, there is a third oversized suite with a large sitting room or playroom, an office nook, and a gabled roof bedroom. Downstairs from the main level is a tidy basement with laundry facilities.

The yard is beautifully landscaped with mature roses, maple and oak trees, a lawn area, a firepit area, as well as paver and pea pebble walkways with native and low-water plantings. An enclosed gazebo provides additional outdoor entertaining options and can be used for multiple other purposes. The home is equipped with solar panels and air conditioning and is connected to City Sewer and well water.

In addition to the Farmhouse, this property features several unique structures, which fill approximately half of the acreage of land. Near the parking area stands a cozy barn cottage with a spacious, versatile room that includes a kitchen, tiled bathroom, wood flooring, and a large closet.  This flexible and functional building could serve as a separate office, guest quarters, or art studio. 

Another unusual feature is the spacious long barn with old-growth siding and a metal roof. It consists of three separate yet connected spaces, each with electrical service and a large side sliding door. This barn offers incredible flexibility and could be used as a workshop, collector's haven, or party space. 

Located uphill from the barns is a separate tenant-occupied house with an in-law unit. The upstairs unit has two bedrooms and one bathroom and rents for $2,300 per month on a month-to-month basis. The downstairs studio apartment includes a Murphy bed and rents for $825 per month on a month-to-month basis. Both units are on septic and well water. 

The property offers future potential for subdivision into two parcels via a Permit Sonoma Lot Split, under Sonoma County development regulations.  One new main dwelling and one ADU may be permitted on the resulting parcel per county guidelines.  Given the location within Petaluma's Urban Growth Boundary, another possibility may be to annex into the City of Petaluma. It is important for any potential buyer interested in development to research and understand the options available to them through the City of Petaluma or Sonoma County Zoning and development codes.

Old-timers will remember Petaluma as the egg basket of Sonoma County. Thousands of chicken farms once operated on the outskirts of town. Today, Petaluma retains its rural feel, but those chicken farms have given way to vineyards, and increasingly, housing developments for residents who appreciate the access to relatively affordable homes and the direct commute to San Francisco 35 miles south on Highway 101.

If there is a single word to describe Petaluma and its homes, it is “picturesque.” The older part of town to the west of Highway 101 has retained many of its old Victorian homes, the former mansions of the chicken barons. Petaluma's commercial core is on the National Register of Historic Places. The central shopping district, mainly two-story stone buildings, has recently undergone a revitalization that includes an emphasis on downtown living. Dozens of antique shops operate in the old-town district.

Petaluma is graced with a riverfront -- once the third-busiest in California -- that has been restored, as well as a river walk. The galleries along the river showcase works from some of the best artists in the North Bay. Restaurants along the river provide a perfect place to gaze at sailboats as they pass through the distinctive D Street drawbridge. The annual Butter & Egg Days Parade & Festival, held in April, hearkens back to a simpler time.
