Begin your future in this picturesque Heritage Home.
An iconic landmark of Petaluma history, this gracious 2,962 square foot Georgian Italianate was built for prominent cheese maker Jefferson Ashbury Thompson in 1885. Designed with classic Georgian symmetry, this stately home stands tall with elegance, making a grand statement of vintage class.
Italianate features abound on the home’s exterior: simple hipped roof with widely overhanging eaves; decorative brackets and dentils beneath; tall, narrow windows; single story front porch with columns; and paneled front door with elaborate surrounds, including the etched glass transom above the entry door.
Walking into your dream home, you’ll tour its expansive four first floor parlors with towering 12’ ceilings and original plaster medallions and crown molding throughout. Long, tall, 8’ tall windows demonstrate the Italianate influence. The kitchen is restored with solid birch hardwood cabinets and 1930’s style hex tile countertops. Lots of storage in kitchen, sunroom, and laundry room. Rounding out the antique beauty of the first floor is its full bathroom, complete with antique pedestal sink, 5 & ½ ‘ claw foot tub, and authentic 30’s light fixtures.
Natural light and tasteful silk wallpaper welcome you upstairs. Ascending to the second floor, the sights continue with mahogany railing, plaster medallions, and Victorian chandeliers. Craftsmanship is, again, at its finest in the four bedrooms with impressive redwood baseboards and original redwood plank flooring. 11’ ceilings and soft, natural light create the perfect showcase for a chandelier hanging in every room. Even the upstairs bathroom features yet another claw foot tub. The unique sitting area adjacent is the landing for the servants stairwell that leads down to the kitchen.
The home is much like an art walk, from the Spanish crystal chandeliers to the architectural medallions and Italian Carrera marble fireplace.
And, if what’s inside isn’t all that counts, 621 Sunnyslope is easy walking distance from family-friendly McNear Park, a quick bike ride (or long stroll) to downtown, and is zoned for excellent schools.
Standing the test of time with visible grace, this stately piece of history is ready for a new generation of loving owners in prestigious West Petaluma.
