Have you ever imagined what it would be like to renovate an old Farmhouse? Envisioned how you would bring it back to its original glory yet completely modern in its functionality? Our current Raspberry Lane listing is an ideal fit for a project of this scale. https://www.mack-faulkner.com/Property/130-Raspberry-Ln-Sebastopol-California
This gorgeous 6-acre property enjoys a southern exposure and is located near the quaint village of Freestone. Stunning views of mountains, meadows, woods and vineyards surround you as you walk its breadth. This special property offers privacy, a grand rustic barn, a workshop and storage building, and a sweet two bedroom second unit. The six acres are multi useable land for horses, gardens or a possible vineyard.
Houzz.com recently posted an article about a Bay area woman who decided to purchase and renovate a 1,680 square-foot farmhouse in Healdsburg that was built in the late 1800’s. http://www.houzz.com/ideabooks/24721647/list/houzz-tour-reviving-a-farmhouse-in-californias-wine-country
The house needed a lot of work done to make it inhabitable but the owner’s desire for a country style retreat surrounded by gorgeous views and a peaceful lifestyle away from the city overruled any doubts. By the looks of her completed renovation, she was well rewarded for her efforts. The end result is a stunning tribute to the original beauty of the home with all the modern amenities we all crave today.
This is what we see for Raspberry Lane as well. Similar to the above property, Raspberry Lane is a fixer upper, to be sure, but we think you can appreciate it’s potential. When you look beyond what it lacks today you will see what it could possess with a little love and attention: the opportunity to live on a quaint, peaceful farm surrounded by immeasurable views not far from local wineries, fine dining, and shopping. Even the barn holds potential for a charming entertaining venue or a shelter for your goats and chickens.
Renovating an old Farmhouse is not for the faint of heart. It takes some elbow grease, money, fortitude and a romantic heart. As we walk through the house we can see a gleaming quartz countertop, a chandelier hanging above an island in the kitchen, and a French farm table with seating for eight in the dining room. There is beauty that we see in this home along side the value in the acreage and location this property is an incredible value.
