Newly listed Guerneville home is a one-of-a-kind score

When most buyers are in the market for a new home they may be looking for something special – even if it’s something that may not be particularly out of the ordinary, like a wine cellar or swimming pool. But this newly listed house in Guerneville takes the idea of unique and goes one step further … it’s home to a miniature golf course.

1903 Cloverdale Craftsman home just listed at $640,000

Vintage homes have always been a weak spot of mine, especially any California Arts & Craft, Craftsman, Victorians, or Bungalows. Cloverdale has always seemed like an area that would be home to ranches and rustic styles, so when I caught site of this 1903 Craftsman home I was ecstatic. The wonderful thing about older homes is the artistry that goes into each area; staircases are carefully carved, the walls have molding, and the wood flooring is put down using careful tongue-and-groove installation.

Custom home in Windsor just listed for $723,000

In a general sense, when a house is described as ‘custom’ there’s a preconception that it’s going to have something really one-off that other houses in the neighborhood don’t- such as a screening room or wine cellar. For this house, it means more along the lines of granite countertops n the kitchen and a fire pit in the backyard.

Cozy Cloverdale charmer listed at $519,000

Sonoma County is becoming a hot real estate area, which has pushed home prices up in more of the tourist-heavy areas like Santa Rosa and Healdsburg. This charming single-family house in Cloverdale strays away from the nearly million dollar price tags that so many houses are asking through the county.

Prop 64 isn’t a good deal for a lot of sick people

When Proposition 64 passed last November, many casual users of marijuana were pleased, looking forward to being able to buy cannabis without needing a medical card. However, the downside to the increased availability isn’t just an increase of prices. According to a recent article in the SF Chronicle, medical patients who rely on donated marijuana are left wanting as aid organizations, growers and dispensaries have had to suspend their charity.
