Chateau Belle Vallee. This custom estate, aptly named for its beautiful Napa Valley setting, is located in one of St. Helena’s prime rural neighborhoods and enjoys absolutely stunning views to Mt. St. Helena and sweeping vistas across neighboring vineyards. Approached via a stately tree-lined drive, the property welcomes arriving guests with an impressive central fountain, broad circular motor court and grand arched entry. The 4,553 +/- sq ft main home features large scale rooms with rich custom plaster walls, gorgeous travertine and wide plank walnut floors, handsome knotty alder doors and cabinetry, oil rubbed bronze Rohl fixtures, wood burning fireplaces and Restoration Hardware chandeliers. The residence enjoys 4 bedroom suites, including a sumptuous master with vineyard views, exercise nook, two walk-in closets, and a luxurious bath with free standing BainUltra jetted tub and elegant marble detail. One of the four suites doubles as a media room with built-in speakers. The public rooms include a chef’s kitchen with Calacatta marble counter, Viking Professional range, and Sub-Zero refrigerator; a family room with cathedral ceiling and full bar; a light-filled dining room with attached 700-bottle wine cellar; and a wonderful living room with tall pocketing doors that fully open onto a spacious covered patio, outdoor kitchen, fireplace, heated pool, spa and adjacent 700 +/- sq ft guest house. Anchoring the expansive back yard lawn is a 150 year-old concrete silo that, with modern temperature control, is the secret keeper of the owner’s most coveted wines and private wine tastings. Awash in the Napa Valley sun by day, or romantically aglow at night, this beautiful country home provides a sense of place that is distinctively wine country.
