What do I love about this house?

I like being able to easily and safely walk to Safeway when I only need 1 or 2 things.

I like how close to Annadel and Spring Lake the house is.  I can walk my dogs from the house to Spring Lake in approx. 30 minutes.  I ride my mountain bike to Annadel, and can be at the Warren Richardson Trailhead in 10 - 15 minutes.

Brick patio with arbor.  A Mission Olive is in the background 

Look south (toward Gold Dr) Firewood is stored behind the brown picket fence.

Built by the previous owner, the electrical panel has a custom "pee-a-boo" door for reading the electrical meter


This home is located in a "tucked away" neighborhood off Melita Rd and consists of 3 streets; Gold Dr; Carolyn Ave; and Evonne.  It's a tight nit community where most of the neighbors are also owners, and most of us know each other.

There are lots of nice homes in Santa Rosa, what is special about Rincon Valley?
