Land for sale in Sebastopol, CA
3652 Celesta CT, Sebastopol, CA
When it is clear, because the pacific ocean is about five miles away -- using line-of-sight measuring, ofcourse, instead of miles of road driven by automobile --you survey the pastoral view from this ridge with a slice of blue water just south of bodega bay, taking in miles and miles of open space, meadows, trees, rolling hills, an archetypical west sonoma county sweeping panorama.
So sweeping, its hard to imagine its only minutes to sebastopol, only an hour or so to san francisco. Sebastopol has become quite the place to live. As a friend once commented to me: andquot;people who can afford to live anywhere live here in sonoma county.andquot; we have an artist-inspiring coastline, all the places to play along the russian river. We have towns with connections to the very beginnings of california history: bloomfield, fort ross, freestone, occidental, petaluma, santa rosa, healdsburg and, of course, sonoma and all the little towns in the valley of the moon. Hewlett packard at 1 time had three facilities in sonoma county before they spun them off to agilent. Big names in telecom got started here. Most of the little pieces of organic lettuce you find in restaurants all over america are grown in sonoma county. Maya angelou had a home in sonoma, pat paulson had a big ranch near geyserville, the smothers brothers opened a winery in kenwood decades ago. Raymond burr, the actor who became famous as perry mason on tv, died in healdsburg. There are great restaurants here, some that have michelin stars. Great entertainment. Sonoma state university has just placed itself on the most important classical music maps in the world with its new green music center, the inaugural concert of which was graced by yo yo ma. The sonoma county airport is expanding its runways to accommodate commercial jet traffic (currently only turbo props on scheduled passenger flights). There will be a smarttrain service to san rafael soon. Wineries abound in famous appellations such as the green valley and russian river ones, of which the sebastopol area is a part. There are large and small vineyards, as well as hobby vineyards, that dot our landscape and enrich our views. The west county area is, well, big. It is spread out over hundreds of square miles and has no town of more than 7000. Most of the towns in west county have hundreds, not thousands, of inhabitants, spread out in an area of gently rolling hills, an area highly influenced by the fresh winds from the cool waters of the pacific. There is often a twenty degree temperature spread on a day when it is in the 90s further inland (healdsburg, windsor, santa rosa, cotati/rohnert park, petaluma) it is likely to be in the 70s this much closer to the coast. Here, atop the ridge, with more than twenty acres of andquot;buffer zoneandquot;, try to imagine living here, taking in the quiet view every day. The owners already installed a standard septic system suitable for 4 beds. They put up a windmill that takes water from the well (yes, there is a producing well) the eco-friendly way. When there is no wind, an electric submerged pump draws the water. Every time i have reason to go to this property, i look out and grin, thinking: andquot;i could live hereandquot;
