In 1925 excellence of craftsmanship was the norm. This Prairie Style home, renovated in 1956 by the Korbel family provides a unique relaxed Craftsmen theme. Located in the Ridgway Historic Neighborhood it is a short walk to Court House Square and all things Sonoma County. Craftsmen homes are eminently livable with built-ins throughout and a large, covered porch. This jewel of a home was preserved with sensitive rehabilitations, maintaining its luxurious original plaster walls, coving and moldings. The spaces include, Living, Dinning, Media Room and Kitchen & Breakfast area; two bedrooms and baths in the main house. Off the cozy patio is the cottage, once the Korbel family's man cave it is now a studio and garage. If the Porte Cochre, patio room and brick barbeque were not enough it has a below-ground fallout shelter built with permits in 1956. Now used as a wine cellar it maintains an annual temperature range of 60-64 degrees. Truly a wine country heritage home.
