WHAT A 1968 home in Sonoma County with three bedrooms, two bathrooms and some charming outbuildings

HOW MUCH $1.895 million

SIZE 1,736 square feet


SETTING The home is about 70 miles north of San Francisco and a mile east of downtown Healdsburg, with its wineries, restaurants, boutiques and museum centered on a 19th-century plaza.

INDOORS The owner is a contractor who has made many improvements to the midcentury home, updating the kitchen, adding a sunroom and building a playhouse, a storage structure that could be used as an art studio and a little house that holds a hot tub.

The first left off the main entry leads to a den, the second to a great room with plaster walls and a wood-burning fireplace. The attached sunroom opens to a brick patio and greenhouse on one side and the hot tub and studio building on the other.

The kitchen has commercial-grade appliances, a copper farmhouse sink, a breakfast nook, a butler’s pantry and a French country-style wood table used as the center island.

The master bedroom opens directly to the outdoor area with the hot tub. Its en-suite bathroom has a marble-topped vanity, double vessel sinks and industrial-style hardware. Two guest bedrooms have use of a bathroom with a copper trough sink, a soaking tub and a stained-glass window.

The one-level home also has a small dining room and a large bonus room that the owner has used for his band practice.

OUTDOOR SPACE The 0.46-acre property includes an exterior flight of stairs with covered landings and benches that leads up a hillside to the playhouse. There is also a detached two-car garage, where the owner had his office, and a paved drive courtyard.

TAXES $8,396 (2017)
