Bennett Valley is a lovely neighborhood of Santa Rosa. When my husband and I moved here 11 years ago we had no local contacts, no one to help ease us into Sonoma County life. We were lucky that my husband Don had built our home in 1983 (think 18% interest) and he wound up renting it out for many years. We figured we could just sell in a couple of years if we weren't happy, but clearly, we've stayed because we love it here!
Bennett Valley is surrounded by the scenic beauty of Annadel State Park and a small ridge of hills that extends along Bennett Valley Rd and southward. It is a terrifc area for commuting as you can be on Highway 101 in 5 to 10 minutes. Bennett Valley also has all the amenitites you could want: great schools, excellent and convenient shopping, fine dining and more.
I'll be talking about the "more" in my next post!
