Glen Ellen, CA– Terry Wunderlich and Chris Wunderlich, both Associate Partners with North Bay-based Terra Firma Global Partners, have sold the first two condominium homes available to the public in historic The Chauvet building in downtown Glen Ellen, announced co-founders Bill Facendini and Heidi Rickerd-Rizzo.
Built in 1906 and opened in 1907 as a hotel, The Chauvet was converted to six condominium homes in 2007 and one of the units was acquired by one of the investors originally involved with the conversion. The three-story building has two condos per floor, each averaging approximately 1,800 square feet and each condo is on one level.
Two weeks ago the Wunderlichs sold a top-floor condo for $829,500 and more recently closed on a second-floor home priced in the high $700,000s. Three of the condominium homes remain available to purchase and the two ground-floor units are zoned as live/work opportunities for buyers, according to Terry Wunderlich.
Acquired by a group of investors in 1996, the boarded up, abandoned property on Arnold Drive in the village of Glen Ellen was seismically renovated with much of its original charm retained after a substantial renovation to the property. The building is on the National Registrar of Historic Buildings. The modern condos are loaded with amenities and feature:
- 3 bedrooms/2 luxurious baths
- Elevators access to second-and-third stories
- Gourmet kitchens
- Grand ceiling heights
- Four-brick thick walls locally made
- Private patios or decks
- Central heat and air conditioning
- Soundproofing and Low E dual windows
- The property has a heated pool and sundeck
“In our industry property is often marketed as unique or one-of-a-kind and in this case it is absolutely true – there is nothing like it on the market. In addition to second-home buyers, the remaining and available condos are attracting interest from local people,” said Terry Wunderlich.
The Wunderlich team is based in Terra Firma’s Napa office.
