St. Helena house description

This property is located behind a grove of gracious old growth oak trees decorated with Spanish Moss delicately hanging from the limbs. The house offers complete privacy from the road. It is located on 3 acres of flat land which is landscaped with a very large lawn, flower beds and several blooming lavender fields. There is a newly installed salt pool with Jacuzzi and an oversized copper fire pit for nightly fires. The decks and over-sized patio provide ample room for outdoor dining.

The house has been newly renovated and has a clean, contemporary design. There is newly installed air conditioning/heat, wireless internet access, and phone service. The entry opens to a Great Room with a vaulted ceiling and windows on all sides, bringing the outdoors inside. A window seat on two sides provides seating around a Farmhouse dining room table which can accommodate up to 12+ diners. The living room area is next to a wood burning fireplace and a newly installed entertainment center.

The kitchen is open and inviting. It is fully equipped with everything a chef might need to make wonderful meals. There is an huge fixed window which looks onto the pool and lawn area for the chef’s enjoyment. There is also a gas barbeque outside for grilling.

There are three bedrooms and three bathrooms, all of which are newly remodeled. Two of the bedrooms are ensuite. The larger of the two, the master suite, includes a wood burning fireplace, ample closet space and a well-equipped office. The third bedroom has bunk beds and can accommodate two children comfortably. The house also has a large screened-in porch that can be used for outdoor dining, relaxing and even sleeping during the balmy summer months.

The property is located just a few minutes away from the charming town of St. Helena where there are enticing retail shopping opportunities and some of the best restaurants in California, including Tra Vigne, Cindy’s Backstreet Kitchen and Press. It is also only minutes away from some of California’s most important wine producing regions such as Oakville, Rutherford, Yountville and Calistoga. There are a multitude of wineries open for tastings as well as many wine tasting rooms in Yountville which represent several wineries in one location.

              Location

              Car: Necessary

              This home is in a premier wine producing region offering numerous wine tasting rooms as well as winery tours by appointment. Our home is centrally located to allow exploration of the famous Napa Valley region as well as the Sonoma Valley and Caneros District vitners. Napa Valley is also a gastronomical mecca with countless celebrity chefs residing here and opening signiture restaurants. The exquisite paring of premium wine and cutting edge cuisine is only matched by the heavenly setting of wine country.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1992

              About the owner: We are a family of four residing in San Francisco. We love to go to St. Helena after a hectic week in the City; it provides the perfect respite from the San Francisco fog in the summer.

              Why the Owner Chose St. Helena:
              It reminded us of the French wine producing regions and it was a lot closer!

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Complete rest! The property's privacy, large outdoor areas, pool and eating areas offer such a beautiful setting to relax. It is also very convenient to wine tasting, shopping, and outdoor activities if desired. Serene Home! The design of the home conforms to the outdoors perfectly. When inside, it still feels like you are outside because of the windows on all sides. Every room has beautiful views. When the sun sets, the fire pit outside is extremely cozy, and if you just want to burrow inside, the blinds throughout can be drawn for a very private night time feeling. Perfect Location! Not too close to the hustle and bustle of downtown St. Helena, but not too far either. I like it being 10 minutes from Calistoga also since that is a very different town from St. Helena; a little more down to earth.
