This landmark property, a significant preservation of St. Helena’s architectural past, is notable, not only for its remarkable origins, but for its gracious presence in the center of St. Helena’s historic west side. Built in 1886 on the Main Street site of the modern-day City Hall, this historically significant residence, designed in the classic California bungalow style, was moved to its current location on Stockton Street around 1959. The current owners have restored and expanded the home, meticulously retaining many of its original elements while adding modern amenities and aspects of the classic east coast Hamptons style, to create a stately residence of character and inspired design. The 3,042 +/- sq ft residence enjoys large scale rooms, tall ceilings, and 19th century details that highlight its vintage character. The first level features a wonderful double parlor, formal dining room with wood burning fireplace, family room with temperature controlled wine cellar, delightful kitchen with white shaker-style cabinetry and high-end stainless steel appliances, two guest bedrooms with a well-appointed Jack and Jill bath, and a light-filled study or fourth bedroom with nearby laundry room and service bath. The home showcases a penthouse master suite with private balcony, sumptuous Carrara marble bath and room-size cedar lined off-season wardrobe closet. An added feature is a sizable finished attic providing more storage space than one might ever need. The interior of the home comfortably flows into the many outdoor living areas and gardens including a broad wrap-around front porch, an expansive ipe wood deck, and a dining patio, all enveloped in a private cocoon of boxwood hedges, lawns, and beautiful established trees. Located just several blocks from St. Helena’s bustling downtown district, this exceptional property is a quiet symbol of timeless elegance and an exquisite heirloom from St. Helena’s rich architectural history.
