About the property

One bedroom, two bathroom, 1800 sq. ft. House on three private acres

Originally built to showcase redwood craftsmanship for a local steam mill, this house has open beam straight grain virgin redwood ceilings with old growth redwood paneling in a sunny area of three private acres. Quarter sawn white oak wide plank flooring beautifully compliments the redwood interior. Skylights provide a bright and inviting interior with beautiful forest and meadow views from every window. The modern kitchen has a Sub Zero built in fridge, Wolf range and oven, dishwasher and microwave all integrated with custom alder cabinets, granite counter tops, and a copper sink. The lighting is accomplished with lutron controls that create many beautiful lighting scenes at the touch of a button. The main bathroom has a big claw foot bath tub, marble floors with in floor heating, and gorgeous views from every window. The master bath has a shower with beautiful forest views and a door that leads onto the deck with a two person hot tub and an outdoor shower. The living room has a beautiful wood stove, flat screen tv, leather seating, and a wireless stereo system. The wrap around deck has beautiful views in every direction, a barbeque, hot tub and some outdoor seating. The property is in a sunny clearing surrounded by forest with a year round creek, redwood grove, and large oak trees. I am permitted for double occupancy maximum so this is a two person occupancy property only.

About owner

My wife and I grew up in West Sonoma County.

Why owner chose Sebastopol

This house once belonged to my wife's grandparents who owned the steam mill in the same valley. The surrounding property has been in the family for generations.

What makes this house unique

This is a unique house with a unique history going back to the origins of the Redwood Empire

Guestbook comments from the owner

I wanted to take this time to thank you and your family in sharing the Redwood home with us. We had a comfortable and very enjoyable stay there. The home is beautiful and we felt all the love, blood, sweat and tears that went into preserving and updating the home. I was sad to leave the area.

Expansive, beautiful cabin great for a wine country vacation

  • 5 of 5

This redwood masterpiece is a large yet cozy cabin secluded on the border of Sebastopol and Graton. The interior is beautifully designed and perfectly suited for rest and relaxation. The cabin is also well stocked for cooking and there is plenty of room to spread out. It’s probably more space than you need for two people but still very comfortable. We plan to return!

Owner's Response: When my wife and I are there we pretty much live in the kitchen/ dining area. I have sat in those leather couches just a few times. Glad you liked it.

Quiet Peaceful stay

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay, such a peaceful relaxing place. It is centrally located with easy access to the coast, the wine country around Healdsburg, an easy drive to Sonoma and of course easy access to both Sebastopol & Santa Rosa. We cooked several wonderful meals in the exceptional kitchen. The only negative was we had no service at the house with our Wireless Carrier, however in some ways - that was a positive.

This is my second time to this Home and I can’t wait to return! This house is stocked with EVERYTHING ! It’s so comfortable, and the views from every window make you feel you are tucked away in the woods (which you are)! Love it love it.

Most amazing home. Thank you for sharing it with us.

  • 5 of 5

The experience of staying in this home was beyond anything I can describe in this review. When we arrived, we were surprised to meet the entire family (through photos) in the home, and we enjoyed reading about the history of the property. As soon as we could, we walked the beautifully wooded property, sat in the hot tub, and enjoyed the outdoor shower in the rain. It was private, clean, and peaceful. We even got to meet a few deer near the house. It was everything and more that we could have wanted. If we return to the area, we will stay here again. I can't recommend this property more highly.
