There’s been a lot of worry about the housing market after the recent fires; it’s going to be a long journey to rebuild the neighborhoods that have been lost. Living in Santa Rosa, close to where some of the worst damage is, I’ve heard reactions from my neighbors that run the gamut from ‘we’ll rebuild’ to ‘we’re going to leave.’

Looking at current homes away from downtown and in other parts of Sonoma County that haven’t been touched by the fire, it’s easier to see why people will stay – Sonoma County is beautiful.

This 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath home in the hills of Healdsburg showcases not just clean, contemporary architecture, it uses the indoor/outdoor living spaces and carefully planned windows showcase these views and with over 4,000 square feet of new construction (the original home was built in 1967) it feels like nothing short of a luxury resort.

While I’m a big fan of clean lines and a minimalist look, it can, admittedly, look sterile to some; but the high-end amenities – especially in the kitchen – are worth it to try out a new look.
