Nestled alongside a gorgeous Cabernet vineyard, this handsome custom residence on a full half acre enjoys ideal southerly sun exposure and magnificent vineyard and mountain views. Considering its impressive privacy, exquisite gardens and country feel, it's easy to forget that this in-town property is located just 6/10ths of a mile from St Helena’s Main Street, and comes complete with all the conveniences that "city" living affords, The arrival experience is marked by lush and mature landscaping, clearly evident from the street view. As you pass through the gated cobblestone courtyard, layers of gorgeous greenery appear, perfectly framing the classic Mediterranean home. Once inside, you are greeted with double volume ceiling height and views through the house to the vineyards beyond. With no doubt, you are in the heart of Napa Valley.

The spacious living room seamlessly transitions to the kitchen, creating a great room effect while also providing direct access to the backyard and wrap around covered terrace. Adjacent to the living room is the formal dining room with 20-ft ceilings and stunning views of the pool and nearby vineyard. Not to be missed, the luxurious and private downstairs master suite features an oversized walk-in closet and a spa-like bath with lovely Calacatta marble detailing, two separate vanities connected by a large rain style shower, and an oversized bathtub with views. Near the entry, there is a spacious office with a floor-to-ceiling display cabinet and potential to become a fourth en suite bedroom. There is also an elegant powder room, separate full bathroom, and laundry room located downstairs. The second floor includes two additional bedrooms, both en suite and designed to accommodate king beds. As you gravitate to the outdoors, one appreciates the large pool and spa, perfectly framed by the dramatic views. A 1000+/- sq ft wrap-around terrace adds significant covered space for year-round outdoor living.
