The John Marshall House
Built by pioneer blacksmith John Marshall in 1871, this majestic Greek Revival home documents the transition to the Italianate style.
The Newel Post Man
This same Newel post can be found in many houses in Healdsburg. In the 1870’s if you needed a Newel post, you went to the newel post man. It would appear he only offered one style.
Marble Master Bath
The master bathroom was created with a nod to the marble bathrooms found in gentlemens clubs in New York City. The bathtub is built into the shower area creating one large wet room. A matched pair of Vintage dressers evolved into custom, dual vanities.
California home with a cellar
A cellar is a rare find in California. This one, part dining and entertainment space, and part wine storage, is actually a daylight cellar. Only underground on three sides, the North face opens onto the gardens of the backyard.
Decks recreate the original
The new Decks for the house were built in the original wrap around style. Although missing for years, recreating their 1870’s position adds incredible flow from indoors to out.
A petite grotto for wine
