This spectacular Napa estate property has it all, from the glamour of its magnificent Tuscan-inspired home to the much-coveted grit of its volcanic hillside terroir. In Napa Valley many self-described “estates” are better characterized as all gate and no grapes, but this superb property lies on the opposite end of the scale in both style and substance. Approximately three acres of prime vineyard have been carved out of the property’s forty acres of eastern Oakville hillside. The estate currently produces a select bottling of ultra-premium Oakville Terraces cabernet sauvignon and, given its close proximity to Screaming Eagle, Rudd, and Della Valle vineyards, when the estate’s vineyards reach full maturity, the possibilities are intoxicating. As for the residence, it would rank highly in Michelin’s Green Guide, for it is private (yes, with a gated entrance), tranquil, luxurious, and perfectly sited, overlooking the heart of Napa Valley, with storybook views of Oakville and Rutherford vineyards, farms, wineries, and the lushly forested Mayacama mountains to the west. Should you wish to hold your own version of a Venetian masked ball and invite 100 or more of the regional glitterati, they could easily and comfortably mingle in the main residence’s grand Great Room. They could dine and dance under the stars on the expansive terrace, and promenade down the broad limestone stairs to enjoy the impressive azure infinity pool.
The property’s structures comprise the 4 BR/4.5 BA, 6,200+/- sq. ft. manor house, which also includes a voluminous cook’s kitchen, library, and study/den; the 2800+/- sq ft 2BR/2BA guest quarters, including a guest apartment with living room and kitchen, a comprehensive workout center, and maid’s/au pair quarters; a detached 1700 +/- sq ft garage capable of holding 6 cars; and a tasting room with wine cellar, wood burning fireplace and bath. Throughout the main residence, you will find hand-troweled “Imperial Plaster” walls, 2’ thick exterior walls, and 11 ½ foot ceilings. The Great Room, kitchen and study enjoy antique French Parafeulli terracotta floor pavers. The exterior of the home has been adorned with a tile roof, Honduran teakwood window shutters, and copper gutters and downspouts. These selected details are indicative of the unusual quality and thoughtfulness throughout. The estate’s many outdoor features include crushed granite pathways and patios, native rock walls, raised vegetable planting beds, a dining patio with wisteria-covered pergola, classic Mediterranean plantings, a fully fenced tennis court, and a hiking trail that ascends to the top of the property.
With a forty-acre parcel in the historical heart of Napa Valley, an established high-end wine brand (included in the sale), a manor home fit for a Duke, and a terrace offering princely valley views, this magnificent estate enjoys royal ranking among Napa’s most exclusive private destinations.
