Built of solid redwood in 1927, this perfectly located craftsman home sits just off D Street, in the heart of the historic downtown Petaluma. Entering up brick steps and through a mature flowering garden of low-water shrubs, climbing roses, camilla, rhododendron, accented by coral bark and red japanese maples this quiet charmer is waiting for its next nature lover. Situated on nearly a one-quarter acre lot with off-street parking for two or more cars, 120 Eighth Street offers the best of urban garden living. Beyond the covered and bricked front porch and through the original hardwood front door you enter into an oasis of mission style detail including unpainted eucalyptus trim, hardwood maple floors, built-ins and a wood-burning fireplace with original ceramic tiles and unique period light fixtures. The main house has three bedrooms and a classic, fully tiled 1920s bathroom all of very generous proportions situated off a long hallway with closing glass paned doors allowing for quiet and privacy on each of the two sides of the house. In addition, this home features a spacious living room, dining room, guest bedroom or small office and eat-in kitchen. Leaving the main house and passing through a beautiful arbored gate, you enter a very private, beautiful Secret Garden surrounded by mature Pepper, Pin Oak, Dogwood and Japanese Maple trees; roses, a fountain, patio, bar, giant dining area and a peaceful world unto itself. Each building is completed by festive exterior lighting and a small deck. And because this is a property that doesn't stop surprising — in the very back of the Secret Garden is a surprise “dog-leg” bonus garden with a small finished man-cave or gardening shed, built in firepit and a stand of bamboo with a meditation seat.
