Rescued, renovated, refreshed, and repurposed for modern country life, this one-of-a-kind vintage Victorian farmhouse is traditional, dignified - and hip as an Armani tuxedo. What you see from the street is a classic white 3BR/2.5BA gabled farmhouse, built in 1912, with a wrap-around front porch boasting the original turned pillars and scrolled brackets, and set in timeless garden landscaping. However, once you pass through the stained glass entry door, you’re ahead of today.
The interior is chic and sophisticated, with gorgeous walnut floors, high ceilings, and crisp lighting. The first floor includes an expansive living room with dining area and garden views; an office with access to a screened-in porch leading to the backyard; a powder room; and a great room, comprising a sleek kitchen featuring white marble countertops and high-end stainless steel appliances, an informal dining area, a contemporary, board-formed concrete family room with Rumford fireplace, and access to the small basement with a wine cellar. Both the great room and screened porch enjoy direct access to the landscaped backyard containing an edible garden, outdoor dining area, and resort-like pool and spa. A brand new “old” red barn, made from reclaimed wood, creates a rustic backdrop for the outdoor entertaining space and, unseen from the home, can hold 2 cars with tandem parking.
The home’s bedrooms are on the second floor and include the en suite Master Bedroom and two additional bedrooms that share a contemporary Jack & Jill bath. The Master and second bedrooms have views of vineyards and the Mayacama mountains, while the third bedroom enjoys a view of the eastern hills through an oversized front window. The Master bath features a statuary marble vanity with two sinks; a large shower walk-in shower stall with sliding glass door, rain shower, hand-held spray shower, and three body spray heads; and a Victoria + Albert free standing soaking tub. Centrally located on St. Helena’s historic west side, this simple authentic Victorian quietly holds a suave, warm, superbly designed modern home.
