Sonoma's Neighborhoods - Eye-Popping East Side Armstrong Estates
The majority of homes that are found on the east side of Sonoma are relatively modest if you compare them to the grand mansions in Armstrong Estates. Armstrong Estates is an east side Sonoma development just blocks from Sonoma's historic 8-acre central plaza. Developer Steve Ledson teamed up with HGTV in 2009 to promote his construction work in a televised and much advertised "Dream Home Give-Away."
There are about two dozen homes in Sonoma's east side Armstrong Estates and the architectural styles are predominantly Craftsman and Victorian. When you drive through this Sonoma east side neighborhood you'll see that each home has a unique appearance. Each has been custom built to the specifications of the individual homeowner. The original Armstrong home (below) was built in 1870 and Steve Ledson lives there today.
Ledson moved in 1986 and it took ten years for him to get through city planning before he began building the first home of the 26 properties he has built so far in this Sonoma east side development. There are just as many vacant parcels to be built out in the years to come. These pictures represent just a sample of the homes in Armstrong Estates.
