This expansive country property, set on a private site a mere 15 minutes from the heart of St. Helena, is a restorative reprieve from the clatter and commotion of urban life. The spacious, bright, elegant and airy home overlooks what in effect is a private nature preserve, a place blessed with the stimulation and serenity that result from more than 90 acres of land, native flora and fauna, walking trails, meadows, brooks, ponds and waterfalls.
The large, 3300 sq. ft. house features tall, 10’ ceilings and oak hardwood floors throughout and offers seamless outdoor access, through its many sets of French doors, to a wide wood-decked veranda that surrounds much of the house. The home offers sweeping views of the Mayacama mountains to the west, Mt. St. Helena to the north, and the Santa Rosa plains and Pacific Ocean to the south. Entrance to the house is gained through a tall, arched portal with double French doors that lead to the Great Hall. The Hall provides access to the Living Room; the Kitchen and Dining Room; a Gallery with a honed Combe Brun French limestone floor and four sets of arched French doors that open to the entry patio; and, at the end of the Hall, the veranda.
The kitchen is open to the dining room and features western views, two Miele dishwashers, a GE Profile refrigerator, 4-burner electric range, a triple stainless steel sink, two large islands, one with a prep sink, and a utility closet and ironing board cabinet. The dining room enjoys a built-in buffet with storage and direct access to the veranda. The living room features an extra-wide bay window with wonderful views, a large wood-burning fireplace, and French doors leading to the veranda.
The master suite boasts a private balcony and a walk-in dressing room with large mirrors and custom built-in cabinets, while the master bath features a limestone floor, a Villeroy & Boch soaking tub, and a stall shower with limestone surround, seamless shower door and a Grohe temperature-controlled shower faucet. The home also enjoys a guest suite with tall ceilings, custom built-in wardrobe closet and full bath; a half bath off the gallery; a laundry room; a 1-car attached garage; and an attic, accessed from the gallery, that is of adequate size to accommodate a 2 bedroom, 1 bath guest suite.
The property is served by a private well with a 10,000 gallon holding tank, a dedicated private power line, electrical solar panels that reduce the use of PG&E power, and a 2-zone heating system. The house is graced with gardens that include cherry, lemon, orange and fig trees, a parade of heirloom roses, and also camellia, daffodils and iris. To best understand the soul of this spot, enjoy a late al fresco breakfast on the veranda and luxuriate in the site’s blissful repose.
