St. Helena house description

Gorgeous wine country home - location, location, location. Just a 3 short block walk to downtown Saint Helena. Now, about our home...this home is a perfect vacation retreat. Located walking distance to everything in St. Helena. Just to tell you a little bit about our home...we live on the west side of the town known as St. Helena. This town is considered 'the Tony' of Napa Valley. We live three short blocks off of Main Street where all the shopping, dining, art galleries, wineries, etc. are located. You can virtually walk or ride a bike to everything. If you have a group with a lot of different interests this is the best place because everyone can find something of interest within walking distance. We have had many people come to view our home prior to renting and our home is the home of choice on every occasion. It is a gorgeous 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom home, with a designer kitchen, high ceilings, granite and French limestone touches. Outside we have an 'al fresco' dining area next to a koi pond with a trickling brook containing fish and our pet turtle 'Fred'. Here you will also find an outside gas fireplace and spa. We have planting boxes filled with fresh herbs, tomatoes, etc. You can pick cherries, lemons, oranges, pomegranates, apples and pears from our garden depending on what time of year you are here. We also have an outside industrial gas grill under a wisteria trellis for barbequing and dining. We also have a beautiful screened in front porch with outdoor furniture that seats 5 - 8.
