Oakville house description

This spectacular home is perched on a 23-acre knoll above the beautiful Napa Valley with 180 degree valley and mountain/forest views. Elegant yet very family-friendly, the home was designed by renowned architect Robert A.M. Stern. It features a huge master suite with his and hers dressing rooms, as well as two additional bedrooms with ensuite baths, one with a queen bed, and the second with twins that can be converted to a king. A gourmet kitchen with premium appliances opens onto a warm family room with fireplace. The house also features a wood paneled library with fireplace, huge living room with high ceilings and fireplace that opens onto a walled garden, and dining and breakfast rooms. A fully equipped exercise room includes weight and cardio machines. Outside, you can enjoy the late afternoon views of the valley from the Adirondack chairs on the terrace, then eat dinner overlooking the pines on Mt. St. John on the pergola-covered patio in back. After dinner, enjoy a fire in the outdoor fireplace as the day cools.

The stone pool house contains two large bedroom/sitting rooms with a king in one and twins in the other, plus fold out couches in each, along with ensuite baths. A kitchenette with sink, fridge, and microwave is perfect for guest breakfasts and lunch by the pool. The infinity edge pool is surrounded with lawn, and the spa is set among the natural boulders.

You can hike along abandoned mining trails, play tennis on the on-site tennis court, romp on the expansive lawns, or just relax under a tree or by the pool. World famous restaurants like the French Laundry are just minutes away, as are, of course, the greatest wineries in the country with their tasting rooms and tours.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2004

          About the owner: We are residents of both Washington DC and the Napa Valley; Derek is a director of a private equity firm and Sara is a retired attorney who does volunteer work.

          Why the Owner Chose Oakville:
          The Napa Valley is a very special and relaxing place, with perfect weather year round and plenty to do. This particular property is unique, with privacy and seclusion, unparalleled views, and proximity to great restaurants and shopping. We are wine lovers and the proximity to the great Napa Valley wineries is a plus.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          Our home is designed by renowned architect Robert A.M. Stern and built of the very highest materials, yet is comfortable and not too formal. It is an 'inside-out' home, where the outside spaces are as comfortable as the inside. The pool and spa area are spectacularly beautiful, with lounge chairs and umbrellas. We can play on our tennis court, work in our vegetable garden, take a swim or a soak in the spa, take a hike, or just relax in the hammock under an oak tree. Some of the best restaurants in the country are a stones throw away, as are the finest wineries.
