This tranquil 5.25 +/- acre country garden estate, located a few minutes north of St. Helena, is blessed with exquisite views of vineyards, the Napa Valley’s cradling hills, and its own alluring landscape. Pass through the wrought iron gates and you’ll discover an enchanting realm of towering valley oaks, wondrous varieties of flowering trees, shrubs, and plants, ever changing ground covers, and its native population of birds, bees, and butterflies.
Nestled in this peaceful botanical setting are a 4,075 +/- sq. ft. 3 BR/3.5 BA main residence and a 1,200 +/- sq ft 2BR/2BA guesthouse. Both are approached by way of a stabilized crushed granite driveway ending in two generously sized motor courts that yield access to the houses and to a 3-car garage.
The classic main home, with cedar siding, gable roof, and dormer windows, enjoys open airy interior spaces with plentiful natural light, substantial scale, inviting indoor/outdoor flow and captivating views from most every room. The residence features a first floor master suite with cathedral ceiling and large bathroom with jetted tub and shower; two en suite guest bedrooms; a spacious open kitchen with oversized island, granite counter tops, Wolf 4-burner gas cooktop, and breakfast nook, family room with cathedral ceiling, skylight, and wood-burning fireplace; formal dining room with a garden view; living room with gas fireplace; and a large office/library with soaring cathedral ceiling, upper clerestory windows, and 145 lineal feet of bookshelves.
The two-story guesthouse includes a first floor sitting room and bathroom with sauna, and a second floor featuring a living room with cathedral ceiling, full bath and two en suite bedrooms with garden views.
The main residence is blessed with expansive patios, off of the kitchen and off both the living and dining rooms, which serve as locations to both admire and approach the amazing variety of plantings, including more than 300 roses, with most plants individually chosen for their size, shape, color, and fragrance, and all of them artfully integrated with over one hundred indigenous oaks. The result is a luxuriant and free flowing landscape that seems to have naturally evolved over time.
One notable exception to nature’s apparent self-gardening is a European parterre garden, which mixes flowers, vegetables, berries, and herbs around a central fountain. Those who are drawn to serene and sunny spots will find themselves here, basking with finches and humming birds, in what can only be a dream for millions of English gardeners.
