Tucked away on a private lane in the Junior College area, you will find this hidden gem of a quaint cottage with a Japanese flair. The single-level 3 bd/2 ba home, built in 1937 was refined by the owner & well-known artist, Micah Schwaberow. Inspired by his studies in Japan, the artist’s personal touches to the home are in perfect harmony. Enter from the welcoming front porch to find a Japanese-inspired foyer & Shoji-clad windows. A custom tokonoma & built-in window seating in the dining area create an intimate space for gathering. The home features wood kitchen cabinets, tasteful flooring; cork, fir, marmoleum, & seagrass carpet with vertical grain fir details throughout. Home has a new on-demand hot water heater, a separate laundry room & a detached garage converted to an artist studio. The fenced backyard encompasses a large vegetable garden & fruit trees. Enjoy your morning coffee in several private seating areas. Convenient walkable downtown Santa Rosa location.
