Exemplifying the grace and charm of an earlier day, this authentic two-story Victorian built in 1889 is a “gateway” property on the main thoroughfare of Sonoma. Behind an enchanting white picket fence, a colorful front lawn, roses, trees, a garden, and a breezy wraparound porch create an alluring introduction to this rare home. Within, the timeless appeal continues, with floors of Douglas fir, soothing neutral wall hues, vintage light fixtures, stately French doors, ornamental moldings and columns, decorative window and door trim, pocket doors, wainscoting, beadboard, bay windows, handsome baseboards, and original mantelpieces and stained-glass windows. Among the inviting spaces are a classical parlor, a cozy den with built-in seating, a spacious living room, and an elegant dining area. An artist’s studio or study offers a space to be inspired by vistas of the lush backyard, with its wisteria-draped trellis and mature trees. Destined to be the heart of the home, the country kitchen has been thoughtfully renovated while retaining its fanciful charm, with details such as French light fixtures, open shelving, and solid-wood countertops combining gracefully with the most up-to-date appliances. Nearby, doors open to a relaxing enclosed sun porch— one of two in the home. A lovely turned staircase rises to the second level, where the home’s four bedrooms offer spaces for restful relaxation. Two vintage windows of gold-colored glass flood the spaces with enchanting warm light. Among the bedrooms, the master suite is the most luxurious repose, with a spacious closet and a gorgeous en suite bath replete with Carrara marble. Adjoining the residence is dignified commercial cottage, a reminder of the town’s genteel past. Beyond its inviting front porch are two main rooms — one a large space with a skylit vaulted ceiling — separated by lovely French doors. On-site parking is a welcome amenity.
