St. Helena house description

This cottage style home is situated in a very quiet neighborhood and an easy walk to downtown St. Helena. The year round climate is wonderful and perfect for drinking wine on the front porch or in the privacy of the backyard where there is a BBQ and large eating area.

There are two bedrooms with a Queen bed in each and French Doors leading out to the private serene backyard. The beds are high quality with 1200 thread count linens, down pillows and comforters. One bedroom has French antiques and a HD flat Screen TV and the other has American antiques and a beautiful iron bed that belonged to Chynna Phillips and William Baldwin. The house is equipped with an Eternal-On Demand hot water system for ample hot water. One bath is a ¾ bath and the other has a large step in tub and double shower heads. The third room is now an office.

The home is extremely comfortable and tastefully decorated with attention to detail. There are Oriental rugs through out the house on hardwood floors and art from the U.S.A., Spain, Russia, Italy and other travels. The living room has a HD flat screen TV, HBO and Apple Box for instant feed.

The country kitchen is designed for a gourmet cook with a 36 inch Wolf range with griddle, Viking refrigerator, wine cooler and butcher block island. It is well equipped. There are Italian dishes and copper pots/pans by Bourgeat from France. On hand are all the essentials to cook including oil, vinegar, salt, pepper and a selection of spices in addition to flour, sugar and all the baking needs.

                          Year Purchased: 1990

                          About: We are a retired couple who have lived in St. Helena for over 30 years. Being young at heart we decided to have three small homes in great locations. If we are not traveling in the summer you will catch us fly fishing on Rock Creek in Montana or in the winter sitting on the beach in Mexico (*San Pancho). We hope you enjoy our home in St. Helena.

                          Why St. Helena:
                          The reason we bought this house in St. Helena is that we love the climate and we love the access to the charming downtown area.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          Our renters that love to cook love our house! We have a gourmet kitchen with a Wolf range and an island great for prepping. You will have a choice of dining inside or outside, sipping wine and enjoying cheese in the front or the back, this house has a style that fits everyone.
