An astronomer, reader, and gardener live in this home in Sonoma County. All aspects of the house were carefully chosen and honed to represent their lifestyle, including an easy maintenance home with the motto: “bring your dog when you visit.” The tower is the stairway to the upstairs, including a third floor deck and upper balcony for night sky observation. The library and game room overlook the dining room, giving a dramatic ceiling and height to the space. Lots of rustic details and colorful tile keep the house casual. Outside, the gardens are abundant, with a pizza oven and outdoor dining area, pool and spa.
