Who says you have to sacrifice historic charm for modern living? Certainly not the owners of our two historic property listings, 227 North Street and 518 Fitch Street. Every-time we walk into these houses we are captivated by the seamless integration of modern life and the preservation of stylistic details from a bygone era.
The Marshall House is an 1871 Italianate mansion that has been lovingly restored over the course of nine years. Constructed by John Marshall as a gift to his new bride, the house has been featured on annual Healdsburg Historic Houses Tour. Today the renovation has cohesively brought the past and present into seamless harmony. Walk across fine hardwood floors through rooms that remind the beholder of past times, and also embrace modern life. Enjoy the kitchen that has kept the original stove and integrated it into a state of the art cooking space. The wine cellar, and ground level entertainment area is perfect for having company and storing fine local wines. Finally, ascend the original burnished wood staircase to see historic rooms that artfully integrate modern design. This downtown property catches the eye with a vivid red door and is a blend of antique elegance and airy modern comfort.
Another historical property, the 1909 downtown Victorian just off Fitch Street, is a gorgeous house that also combines style with creature comforts. Two blocks from the Plaza, this house has a temperature controlled wine room, inground swimming pool and modern contemporary entertainment space outside. Its unique style preserves character from the past and also expertly embraces modern conveniences. Entertain guests in the secluded backyard, have a serene swim in the pool and enjoy the beautiful interior. Outside this Victorian age house draws attention with cheery yellow paint, and like the Marshall House, its prominent old style front door reminds us of its history.
Both of these houses have kept the original woodwork in a beautiful testament to how they remember the past and adeptly integrate modern amenities and comforts. Come see our two Healdsburg houses and how they uniquely preserve the character and embrace modern style.
