  • Property Description

    Located on ten gated acres of native land and sequestered by the gentle Tulocay hills from the bustle of nearby Napa city, this restorative property with panoramic views of the eastern hills is the perfect, private, instant antidote (and reward) for a frenetic, goal-oriented life. Whether you arrive at this property by helicopter or car, once you turn off the engine the soothing sensation of the still, natural setting envelops you in its magic.

    The subdued, award-winning landscaping makes extensive use of low maintenance, low thirst, natural grasses that unite the various gardens and natural outlooks with the integrated structures, including the 4 BR/4½ BA main residence, the barn which houses a 1BR/1BA guesthouse on its top floor, a horse stable with 3 stalls and tack room, and a large green house.

    The tasteful, spacious, extensively remodeled 4,600 sq. ft. main residence embraces its location, with direct outdoor access from all bedrooms, and the interior’s warm and thoughtfully modern design welcomes and adds to the serenity of the property. A great room, holding the kitchen and living room, exemplifies the relaxing and artful integration of spaces. Although large, the room is pleasingly intimate. Wall-to-wall low-pile carpeting unites the kitchen with the living room and adds a surprising sense of peaceful sophistication to what often is a source of clatter. The master suite enjoys a vaulted open beam ceiling, a room-size walk-in closet, panoramic views, and a master bathroom featuring an extra-large, free-standing tub with a sweeping view of the Vaca range.

    The property includes a number of additional, distinctive features, including an exercise center with a separate entrance that could readily serve as a very large guest suite, with a full bath, walk-in closet, and private patio; an outdoor shower; a club room with a 275+ bottle wine cellar and 12’ solid wood bar; an office suite with full bath, plus 3 storage rooms and a workshop in the lower level of the barn; 2 garages capable of holding 10 total cars; a food garden with unique, protective raised beds; gated entry; and a particularly special picnic area, located in a private oak grove and enclosed with a low rock wall, containing an iris garden, a bocce court, and a monumental rock suggestive of an Easter Island statue. Its exhaustive list of notable amenities and its close proximity to private jet access at the Napa airport are undeniably attractive, but the greatest luxury this property offers is a pervasive tranquility that relaxes, refreshes, and rejuvenates.
