Rustic, refined and impeccably designed, this expansive, board and batten, cedar-sided home integrates seamlessly with its wooded, knoll top location. About ten minutes from St. Helena’s Main Street, and approached by way of country road and a gated, shared private drive, this property offers all the sophisticated amenities expected of a custom home in the heart of Napa Valley.
With two separate wings containing 5 bedrooms and 4 ½ baths, there is an abundance of space to accommodate weekend, or month-long, guests in this 3,693 +/- sq. ft. residence. And the entertainment and recreational areas easily match the private spaces. For indoor gatherings there is a great room that embraces a living area with a native rock fireplace and two full walls of view windows to take in the natural beauty of the setting and the valley vineyards below, a dining area that enjoys similar views and opens completely through a glass NanaWall to an ironwood deck patio and a pool, and a chef’s kitchen featuring top-of-the-line, stainless steel appliances, including a Wolf 4-burner professional gas cooktop with a French Top and professional range hood, a Wolf dual convection oven, a Sub-Zero refrigerator with dual freezer drawers and two additional refrigerator drawers, and a KitchenAid dishwasher. There is also a wine storage room off the kitchen and a small library with fireplace situated in the east wing.
The spacious patio and heated infinity pool can be accessed directly from the living area, dining area, and entry hall. The patio seating offers filtered views of the Vaca mountains, the valley floor and Mt. St. Helena. And a short walk down a landscaped walk brings one to the bocce court. Touches of luxury abound and include a lofty sky-lighted entry, a powder room off the main entry, towering Western red cedar open beam ceilings, solid mahogany doors, and wide-plank black walnut floors. In the east wing, the guest bedroom enjoys garden and valley views and a separate bathroom off the hall, while the guest suite is blessed with a private balcony and ensuite bathroom, both with views of valley floor vineyards, ponds and the Vaca mountains beyond. The two guest bedrooms in the west wing enjoy garden views and share a bathroom off the hall, while the master suite is favored with a fireplace with natural rock surround, an en suite master bathroom, arched alcove with storage cabinets, walk in dressing room/closet with custom cabinetry, an inviting window seat with views of wooded hills and Mt. St. Helena, and direct access to the patio and pool.
On a still sunlit day, looking out at the wineries, vineyards, pools and ponds, fully conscious of the pleasures offered on the Valley below but basking in the tranquility, solitude and birdsong from the woods around you, you just might decide to let “America’s Eden” wait.
