Calistoga house description

This elegant property has it all. A perfect summer or holiday home complete with wood burning fireplaces, beautiful colors and vistas that go on forever. Feel the serenity all the way to your bones when you stay at our family vineyard property. From the moment the gates open to welcome you into the drive behind the walls, you'll find the perfect combination of Napa Valley luxury and comfort. With spaces designed for coming together and for solitude, you can craft your stay to suit your family's needs. After a hike in the hills or a walk to a winery, return for a glass of wine by the fire or a swim in the pool. As the sun dips below the mountains, sit on one of the decks to gaze over the vineyards and delight in the changing colors of the sky. Gather on one of several decks to enjoy a glass of wine before moving to the dining room, which can comfortably seat 12, for a delicious meal, prepared in the state-of-the-art chef's kitchen, either by you or a private chef. After dinner retire to the library for a brandy in front of the fire or to watch a movie.


The next morning, plan you day in the valley as you sit on a deck or balcony with your coffee listening to sound of birdsong, contemplating the vistas of the vineyards and mountains, and enjoying the pines and old oak trees. There are several wineries in walking distance.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2000

              About the owner: We are a semi-retired physician and a business consultant.

              Why the Owner Chose Calistoga:
              We purchased the property for the vistas and views. It had an old farm house, garage, stable and hen house, and lots of weeds. It was truly a project of love to develop the property. We began by planting our Petit Syrah vineyard in 2000. Next we took down the stable and hen house and built a two bedroom, two bath (1000 sq') guest house. We moved into the guest house and donated the old farm house to our local volunteer fire departments for training. They couldn't burn it down because of the beautiful old old trees shading it, but they did train new volunteers on things like cutting holes in a roof during a fire. It was fascinating to watch. After tearing down the farm house, we began construction on the 3800+ sq' main house in 2004. Our goal was to have a farm house that blended well into the country atmosphere on the outside, but was exquisite and sophisticated on the inside. We think we achieved our goal. We moved in January 2006. The pool, landscaping, wall, fencing took another year, and we still have a few things we'd like to do (a fountain across from the front drive has just been purchased). Finally, we turned part (400 sq') of the garage into the 'guys' space with pool table, etc. We find women are very good pool players too! Perhaps the best part of all, is that every window and door looks out to something beautiful. There are many different species of birds that return every year. Butterflies, and hummingbirds love the colorful flowers. We have lived in New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco most of our lives so seeing a clear night sky is both stunning and a celebration. We pick our herbs and many vegetables from our raised beds. We pick seasonal fruits from our fruit trees, and best of all, we raise a glass of wine from our own grapes to toast the beauty at sunset every night.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              The beauty of the vistas across the valley floor is breathtaking. The ever changing light on the mountains to the west, north and east makes the property an artist's dream. Even though we are on flat land and can look across the valley floor, it feels like we are surrounded by mountains. As one travels north in Napa Valley, the mountain ranges on each side get closer and, we think, more beautiful. More practical benefits include both a steam bath and dry sauna, many wood burning fireplaces, including one outdoors and a kitchen in which any chef would have fun.
