From Main Street it looks a winsome and endearing vintage farmhouse. However, with its gabled roof, dentil moldings, tongue-in-groove wood siding, double hung windows adorned with a flower box, and rocking-chair front porch with scrolled column braces, it seems almost too perfect and, well, too vibrant to be authentic. And yet it is.
Built in 1890, this charming property has been enlarged and impeccably renovated by its current owners. Its quaint public face, looking for all the world as if it were taken from a Norman Rockwell illustration, suggests a cozy, possibly antiquated interior. You’ll be surprised. The central portion of the house contains a contemporary main residence with an entry/sitting room, an open living/dining room, a warm modern kitchen, a laundry room, and 3 bedrooms, two of which have an ensuite bathroom featuring a fully tiled soaking tub and steam shower. And there’s much more: a two-car attached garage and a workshop and storage room. The entry room, kitchen, and first-floor bedrooms all enjoy 11’ ceilings. The living area opens to an outside deck and dining area through French doors. There is also a second-story studio/1BA guest unit that enjoys a separate entrance, a kitchen, and French doors opening to a balcony overlooking the property’s private ground-level courtyard (accessible to all in the house) and its outdoor fireplace.
One final, hidden asset is that the property is blessed with a privilege rare in Napa: it is permitted as a vacation rental. As a result, the guest suite, or either bedroom suite, or the property as a whole can legally generate income. In total, the property contains approximately 2,466 square feet of interior space (and more than its share of surprises) distributed over two stories on a 6,970 +/- sq. ft. lot. That this jewel of a farmhouse transforms upon entry into such a spacious, practical, contemporary home seems nothing short of magic.
