Exemplifying the relaxed luxury of Napa Valley, this picturesque estate combines sophisticated style, serene natural elements, a vibrant palette, and enchanting views.
Minutes from downtown Napa, Yountville, and St. Helena, this more or less acre estate offers peaceful privacy, carefree stylish living, and breathtaking mountain, sunset, and vineyard vistas. It encompasses a chic contemporary residence, a welcoming guesthouse, a three-bay car barn, numerous outdoor living and entertaining spaces, and an alluring heated pool and spa surrounded by lush lawn, mature trees, an orchard, and gardens.
Offering 5,537 square feet of light-filled spaces, the single-level home has an inviting open floor plan that encourages effortless living and entertaining, all with an enviable view. Designed by architect Sandy Walker and built by Cello and Maudru, the home includes one well-appointed bedroom suite, two full and two half baths, a living room opening to a secluded stone terrace, two offices, a chef’s kitchen with an island and superior appliances, a butler’s pantry, a wine cellar and wet bar, a gym and massage room, and a soaring skylit sunroom that becomes a fluid indoor-outdoor entertaining space. Vaulted ceilings with hand-cut Douglas fir beams, white oak and limestone floors, serenely smooth plaster walls, sunlit French doors, and distinctive interior design by Barbara Colvin contribute to the rustic yet refined style for which California wine country is revered. “Disappearing” glass pocket doors allow for a seamless indoor-outdoor flow, and nearly every room enjoys a view.
The grounds—impeccably landscaped by Claudia Schmidt—are an idyllic backdrop for alfresco entertaining. Paths meander among an ancient olive allée, an oak grove with a fireplace, roses, dahlias, an orchard, and herb gardens; and a swath of emerald lawn surrounds the refreshing pool and spa. Visitors will appreciate the stylish freestanding guesthouse, which offers one tranquil bedroom, two baths, an expertly appointed kitchenette, a living area, laundry facilities, an outdoor shower, and easy access to a breezy arbor-covered loggia with a fireplace and a built-in grill.
