Named as one of the Top Ten Weekend Getaways by Travel and Leisure Magazine, Petaluma is a lively city with a casual sophistication. A quick glance at Petaluma's events calendar shows there is always something to do in this Sonoma city - from artisans' crafts exhibits and hobby expos to annual festivals and fairs that include an Artisan Cheese Festival, a Spring Antique Fair, and the very unique Butter and Egg Days celebration and parade. Petaluma also boasts a state of the art marina and the Petaluma Yacht Club, which is located on the river in downtown Petaluma and has been dubbed "The Jewel of Northern California".
Homes in Petaluma range from beautifully restored Victorians to brand-new condominium and loft complexes in the heart of downtown to mid-century ranch homes in established suburban style neighborhoods. Famed architect Brainerd Jones, who also designed several buildings in nearby Santa Rosa and Healdsburg, designed many of the homes in Petaluma. On the outskirts of Petaluma, many homes are on acreage, surrounded by the rolling coastal hills - and perhaps an olive grove or vineyard.
Petaluma is a desirable wine country community and real estate prices reflect this with a wide range of price points, from the relatively affordable to the expensive. Whether you are looking for something sleek and contemporary like the lofts and condos at Celsius 44, a vintage Craftsman home, or a country estate set in the hills, Petaluma is a great place to begin your search.

Petaluma is everything a Sonoma County town should be and then some. Known for its wide-range of established antique shops, eclectic boutiques, and mouth-watering farm-to-table restaurants, it’s no wonder why suburban home buyers continue to flock to this wondrous part of Wine Country when looking for the perfect new place to call home. Petaluma also happens to be situated in an easy-to-reach location, right up Highway 101 about 32 miles from the world class city of San Francisco, and only about a 30 minute drive from Santa Rosa, which of course acts as the county seat of Sonoma County.
With a historic downtown, a convenient location along Highway 101 in Sonoma County, and all the amenities you could want or need for a mid-size city, it’s no wonder why homes for sale in Petaluma continue to be so highly sought-after by Bay Area suburban home buyers. New construction has been on the upswing recently in Petaluma, especially out on the outskirts of town where home builders can maximize space and each new home’s footprint. Historic homes and charming bungalows are also in high demand here in the Petaluma area, which can make for a great entry or mid-level option. And as a town with nearly 60,000 people, condos and townhouses are also available in Petaluma as well, although single-family homes here still dominate the housing landscape by a wide margin, which shouldn’t be all that surprising for a city here in beautiful Sonoma County, California.
