Imagine that you wake up in the morning and take your cup of coffee out on to you deck, where you look out onto your property and feel a sense of peace. You can’t really see any other houses although you know they are not far. Maybe you can see the surrounding hills, neighbor’s animals or vineyards. Often in the morning, fog is blanketing the area in a hazy softness that makes you feel safe. You feel as though you are in a great expanse of space and have plans for the various things you can do on your land. If you dream of this feeling, then a country property may be right for you. With space to garden, craft, putter and spread out, there are a lot of real estate options in the rural parts of Sonoma County. And the best news? They are often close enough to town to keep life easy.
