Default Need moving to N. Calif advice

Live in Upstate N.Y. and want to move to California but We Could use some Local input !
Was born & raised in Sonoma, and like it, but what can be found for under $160,000 ?
Am wondering where else has the lovely cool morning & evening temps, low humidiity, summer temps that rarely go over 98 and no chance of snow in the winter. We're thinking a small 3+ bedroom house (gotta put up the college kids when they visit!).
I Have a job I can do from computer in home . We want to visit the redwoods often but not live in them ( don't want to live cold, damp, sunless winters). Was wondering about the Anderson Valley area.

You might want to start a new thread since this one began over a year ago.
Some people ignore these old ones not realizing that there's a new poster with a new question.
Just a suggestion.
Under 160K? Wow.
Let me know when you find out.

One of my favorite towns in NorCal is Healdsburg. It has an actual downtown and is very quaint. However, it is a vibrant town and in the center of the wine country. About an hour from the coast and it has terrific weather!
Also, home prices have really moderated quite a bit.
It has good schools and access to great healthcare!

What's not to like????

I hope they found a great suitable place!!! I am looking to relocate to Northern CA from the East Coast. It has been a bit daunting I must admit. I would love anyone's input on a quasi affordable town home in an area commutable to SF. I work in the legal industry and will most probably have to commute to SF. ALSO, a great HS for my son. Since this move is really all about him. We visited San Marin and Drake and he loved both of them.
Any insights would be greatly appreciated.
