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.

ReviewsWrite a review
This property is amazing! We spent a week there with our entire family ( 12 in all with 5 grandkids!!! ) and had a fantastic time!! The sights are exceptional, you are literally on top of the mountain. The views are 360 degrees and will make you feel relaxed and at home. Anything we needed, the house manager was right there to help. It was a perfect location for visiting wineries and attending delicious meals out. It was also nice to stay in, and enjoy a family dinner in one of the spacious dining rooms. The pool and poolhouse was a perfect set up for the grandkids. (not to mention the hot tub for the adults) This was a vacation of a lifetime and we look forward to returning on a special occasion in the future!

This was our first VRBO experience - there's simply no way they can all be this fantastic! House is classy but comfy. Views take your breathe away - they are stunning. Pictures do not do justice - they just can't - when you wake to overlook the entire valley there's no way to capture that. The house manager was attentive and helpful; owners quick communication and helpful as well. Our kids never wanted to leave - they were in the gorgeous pool most of our stay. I didn't want to leave either! If you are even considering this - BOOK it!!!! It's amazing!

Pastures of Heaven
John Stienbecks phrase, "Pastures of Heaven" best describes this property. It is a dream come true. Our entire family (12 counting kids) fit with rooms to spare. The weekend we spent there created a memory my children will remember forever. Don't look at anything else; book it. There will be no regrets.

Beautifully designed home and grounds above Oakville with great views of Napa valley. Easy access to restaurants and wineries, yet have privacy and complete quiet from the rush of the valley floor. We had five couples and every person throughly enjoyed our week stay. Far Niente; and Nickel and Nickel Wine Estates were the most interesting and informative tours that we had. They are both by reservation-but well worth it. Tom G.

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.
