About the property

2 bed, 3 & 1/2 bath farmhouse in the heart of Napa Valley w/ breathtaking views

This stunning farmhouse home is nestled on a western hillside above the beautiful Napa Valley with 180-degree views of the valley below. Both sophisticated and family-friendly, the home was designed by award winning and nationally renown architect Howard Backen and was featured in Architectural Digest magazine. From the minute you walk in the front door, it exudes elegant simplicity, a sense of intimacy, warmth, and a peaceful feeling of being in nature. The home offers expansive views from every room and long vistas open outward

toward the sun-drenched valley below. This home is both pleasing to the eye and restorative to the soul.

The gourmet kitchen with restaurant quality appliances opens onto an inviting living/dining room with comfortable seating areas and two fireplaces. The dining table seats eight. A covered outside porch parallels the living room and offers another peaceful spot for taking in the views or enjoying the outdoors. An outdoor fire pit completes the picture.

The large master suite includes a fireplace and sitting area. With its unusually wide window, it turns the valley view visible above the trees into a sunny slice of heaven. It has a king bed and his and her baths, as well as an outdoor shower,claw foot tub and mineral cold plunge. A second bedroom, with its en suite bathroom, has a full bed and single daybed, and is suitable for two adults or 2 children.

The charming studio pool house, which sits below the main house, includes 2 daybeds,and a king size bed, a full bath with shower/sauna, an office area, and kitchenette. It can sleep 4 additional guests. Outside the pool house is a wood-fired pizza oven, grill and al fresco seating for 8. Whether enjoying the mineral pool and hot tub, napping after a day of winery tours, or grilling a gourmet meal, this outdoor area provides aesthetic beauty and ease. Steps from the pool house, there is a fully equipped exercise room with weight and cardio machines.

The farmhouse theme continues with a picnic area, child’s playhouse and chicken coop. Tire swings abound. With its sweeping views, beckoning comfort and family friendly amenities, this perfectly located compound will have you coming back for more.
