Peanuts creator Charles Schulz’s former North Bay studio space is for sale. Here’s the listing price

The former creative studio and office space of famed Peanuts cartoonist Charles Schulz is up for sale and has a four-hole, par-three golf course. Listed at $3.95 million, the one-bedroom, two-bath structure with beamed ceilings and picture windows is nestled within the redwoods on Sebastopol’s Coffee Lane.

The artist, whose characters of Charlie Brown, Lucy, Pigpen and their compadres delighted children for decades, used the studio space in the mid-1960s and early 1970s. Listing agent Mark Stevens of Mark Stevens & Associates said Schulz often entertained friends — including Bob Hope and Robert Mitchum — on the mini golf course, which is decorated with Peanuts references, including a Snoopy and Woodstock bench.

The 1,400-square-foot, midcentury modern building sits on more than 7 wooded acres. Built in 1966 by architecture firm Steele & Van Dyk — which also designed the Snoopy’s Home Ice rink in Santa Rosa — the structure now functions as a residence surrounded by lush trees, Japanese-inspired gardens and small ponds with tranquil water features. Schulz’s drawing room is now the bedroom. A spacious deck abuts the home, as do a garage and workshop. There’s also a 1.5-acre buildable parcel.

The property was purchased by Donald and Helen Rogers in 1976 for $115,000, according to the Santa Rosa Press Democrat. They used it as a weekend retreat and most recently rented it out on Airbnb, where it was listed as a “Hidden Cabin of Famous Cartoonist.”

While the Rogers family made small updates to the house over the years, Stevens said they intentionally kept the original architecture and design, including stonework, warm wood paneling and a fireplace, to preserve its unique history. “They kept it up in a manner that very few people would ever keep up any property,” Stevens said. “They were very meticulous.”

The original Schulz property on Coffee Lane was much larger. It’s where Schulz first moved his young family from Minnesota and consisted of a tennis court, swimming pool and baseball diamond. After the Schulz family moved, the property was divided into three parcels, with the smallest going to the Rogers family.
