This historic home is conveniently located a half block off Sonoma's Plaza and was built in 1847. Its early provenance is not clear but may have been part of the Vallejo estate and moved between 1850 and 1861 to its current location. The property, originally owned by the Carriger family, was purchased by the local merchant Catherine Poppe, wife of Julius A. Poppe, in 1880. The main house is a 1,175+/-sq ft charming single-level 2 bdrm/2 bath Calif Carpenter Gothic home. The architecture and design are unique to Sonoma. Adjacent to the main house, is a smaller 450+/-sq ft 1+ bdrm/1 bath single-level cottage. Both structures have recently undergone thorough maintenance & cosmetic updating. The backyard is tastefully landscaped with lawn and gardens all fenced, providing real privacy from adjacent properties. This home has both commercial and residential zoning. It has been used for both in the past, offering that same potential versatility for its future owner.
