I wrote about the house back in May when the owners, Steve Lewis and Nancy Ellis, were busy getting the unique 3,300-square-foot home ready for the listing pictures to be taken.
The couple moved to Santa Rosa and hoped to find a buyer that would love the nearly century-old home just as much as they did while living there for eight years.
Realtor Eldon Daetweiler tells me the new owners, a young couple, fell in love with it after seeing the house.
“Totally supports my theory that a house speaks to people,” Daetweiler said. “I always tell people they will know when they walk into a house and it may not even be the type of house they thought they were looking for.”
The house sold for the asking price of $349,000.
