Stunning, Ultramodern Prefab Home in Healdsburg Listed at 3.7M

While older and well-restored homes are my favorites, I’ll come across brand new homes that aren’t just beautiful to look at, but that also have something a bit more special to them. This luxury estate is a prime example – the house is stunning and the architecture…is prefabricated. I knew I’d seen this house before, but I couldn’t find anything further in the listing besides the fact that is was classified as a prefab.

New Year, New Pad? 10 Santa Rosa Homes At Median Rental Price, $2,385

The New Year is the time for making resolutions and looking forward to change. It’s also the time that many find that their lease is up, the rent’s been raised, or they just want a new living space.

Stunning 4.4M Santa Rosa Home Features Horse Stalls and Vineyard

Lately, there’s been an increase of homes that include unique property features such as private lakes and equestrian stalls and boarding areas. This latest estate takes is a step further with the inclusion of a 12-acre vineyard planted with Syrah & Roussanne grapes. For a homebuyer with an entrepreneurial spirit, the 4.4M cost can be offset by the use of the home for what it’s set up for: boarding and training horses, growing grapes for wine production, and if someone is good at hosting as well, there’s plenty of space to run a B&B.

4 Bay Area Celebrities And Their Real Estate Deals in 2016

2140 Jefferson St., San Francisco (Photo courtesy of Venture Sotheby’s Int’l Realty) A lot happens in a year, and as the New Year gets closer many individuals start to reflect on everything they’ve accomplished. If you’ve ever sold a home, you know that this endeavor can take a lot more time and effort than it seemed like it would in the beginning, and when escrow finally closes it seems like you’ve cleared an obstacle course of inspections, paperwork, and fees.

Unique 4.2M Sebastopol Home With Lake, Wildlife Habitat, and 81 Acres

Soon after looking for median priced homes with over 5 bedrooms, the listing for this unique property with everything from a private lake to a wildlife habitat came across my radar. The main residence contains 4 bedrooms, with an attached guest suite that features two more. There’s a generous 7 bathrooms in total, which means that a homebuyer could host large (very large) family gatherings, or – as the listing suggests – rent it out as a corporate retreat.

K2 Zombies? Synthetic Marijuana Isn’t Marijuana

Synthetic marijuana, also known as K2 or Spice, is reportedly behind dozens of users turning “zombie-like” in Brooklyn last summer. In July, 33 people collapsed on a Brooklyn sidewalk within an 11-hour period, according to a recent CNN article. At the time, no one could explain the underlying cause, but a newly released study by the New England Journal of Medicine pointed at synthetic cannabinoids found in recovered packages of AK-47 24 Karat Gold.

5 Sonoma County Homes With 5+ Bedrooms For Less Than 700k

4673 Flax Ct, Rohnert Park. Median home prices in Sonoma County are holding steady at rates that many still find woefully out of their budget. The latest figures hold that the while the median “sold” price is $575,000, the “on the market” median home price is $749,00.

Sebastopol Estate Designed by World-Class Architect Christopher Alexander Just Listed For 2.9M

When I saw this listing, something about the architecture looked really, really familiar. When I read the description, the pieces fit together: this house was designed by Christopher Alexander; a world-class architect who seamlessly combines mathematical patterns with his design. Though this next set of facts has nothing to do with this home in particular, knowing that Mr.

Recent Study Says Marijuana Won’t Lower Teen I.Q.

New scientific research has shown that teenage pot use may not lower IQ, as previously thought. A recent study by the National Academy of Science compared IQ changes in twin siblings who either used or abstained from marijuana for a 10-year period. After considering environmental factors, they found no measurable link between marijuana use and lower IQ.

Entrepreneurs finding green in marijuana’s sidestream

This year’s Emerald Cup was the largest in its 12-year history, with Saturday selling out, and Sunday close to doing the same. After waiting in long entry lines, people had the chance to walk through the 18+ area, which featured vendors selling goods that had to do with marijuana, but not the actual flower itself.
