Whether you are looking for a full time home, or part time sanctuary, 11464 and 11468 Occidental Road is your opportunity for a unique, sustainable, and comfortable lifestyle.

The property is in the most ideal location to everything West Sonoma County has to offer. Only 7 minutes to Andy’s Produce Market on Gravenstein Hwy. 12 minutes to Sebastopol’s Downtown and Town Square, which features the Farmer’s Market every Sunday morning, 6 minutes to the town of Occidental (we won’t even get into the magical experience of ziplining through the Redwoods!), 15 minutes to Santa Rosa and 20 minutes to Bodega Bay. Surrounded by some of the world’s most renowned wineries and tasting rooms including Dutton-Goldfield, Merry Edwards, Iron Horse, Horse and Plow, Fog Crest… the list goes on! Enjoy your evenings dining at the many popular eateries The Barlow has to offer including Acre Pizza, Blue Ridge Kitchen (I dare you to finish the “The Tomahawk”), Fern Bar and the Farmer’s Wife. The Barlow isn’t the only place to find fabulous food. In downtown you can find two Michelin Star rated restaurants – Ramen Gaijin and Khom Loi, enjoy some fantastic tacos and outdoor seating at The Handline, and hit a concert, comedy show or trivia night at Hopmonk.

Famous for our Gravenstein Apples, Sebastopol has several festivals and parades to celebrate the town’s agricultural history. Every year we welcome in the start of spring with the Apple Blossom Festival and Parade, which will be April 29th and 30th this year. At the end of summer we beckon in harvest season by having yet another apple related festival the Gravenstein Apple Fair at Ragle Ranch Park. We also celebrate our many local artists during the bi-annual Sonoma County Art Trail. While we are on the topic of trails, Sebastopol has some of the best biking trails like the Joe Rodota/West County Regional Trails and the Railroad Forest Bike Path.

I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the majestic Redwood trees surrounding the property. Native only to Coastal California, these “Ancient Ones” are the tallest trees in the world and have inhabited the area for at least 20 million years. Studies have shown Redwoods can hold up to three times more carbon than the average tree, keeping our Sonoma County air clean and crisp. Who wouldn’t want one of the rarest and most profound species of trees in their backyard?!

Shhhh, hear that? That is the sound of crickets playing in the field, frogs splashing in the creek, and wind gently flowing through the Redwoods. It is the sound of Sebastopol, the sound of home.
