Santa Rosa is the largest city in Sonoma County and the business epicenter of the county. It’s bisected by HWY 10 (North to South) and HWY 12 (East to West) which creates natural demographic and neighborhood barriers. There is a plethora of neighborhoods in Santa Rosa and a vast variety of architecture; everything from the Ridgeway Historic District & Burbank Gardens to high density new construction homes to custom high end homes. A revitalization effort to beautify downtown Santa Rosa and attract more businesses is under way with the reunification of Old Courthouse Square. On any given day there will be a line at The Russian River Brewing Company. and you can check downtown events at the square here. To the West of downtown is the Railroad Square Historic District. With it’s specialty shops, restaurants and a Smart Train station, this neighborhood has become the hipsters choice. Plans for mixed housing are on the table now and should break ground in 2019.
