It’s rare that a home comes along that’s not only easy on the eyes but bears a story to warm the heart: This renovated Sonoma farmhouse (the details of which we’ll get to in a bit) has been housing first responders’ families whose homes were destroyed by the North Bay fires in late 2017.

The first guests found long term housing in downtown Sebastopol right before Thanksgiving, according to realtor Doug Bend. The property owner is now providing temporary lodging to other families who lost their homes in the fires. The space will be made available for displaced people until the property is sold.

Featuring four beds, four baths, and roughly 5,000 square feet, 5250 Gravenstein is a turnkey property that comes with not only all of the furniture seen in the pics, but also a housekeeper, a gardener, and a vineyard manager. (According to the listing, the property has “achieved a recent top rated Robert Parker wine rating through its vineyard designated grapes.”)

It also has a pool; a detached guesthouse; and a garden boasting more than 800 varietals of flowers, trees, herbs and plants, including rare medicinal herbs.

Asking is $5,250,000.
