St. Helena house description

Enjoy small town living coupled with all that Napa and Sonoma have to offer in this recently remodeled St. Helena cottage. Brought back to its inviting 1930's roots with period moldings and finishes, this home beautifully blends historic charm with clean lines and modern amenities.

The integrated living and kitchen area creates the heart of the home, with dining and lounging decks facing both front and rear gardens. The renovated kitchen features a restored Wedgewood stove, Carrera marble counters and a wine cooler. The decor throughout is inviting and inventive, distinguishing the home as a serene and sophisticated retreat.

The master suite, with a queen bed has a full bath, complete with a heated stone floor and claw foot tub, as well as a small study that looks over the garden. The second bedroom, also with a queen bed, has a full bath adjacent.

An old-world still at the rear of the property has been converted into a free-standing guest suite with full bath and reading loft, offering complete privacy just steps from the main cottage. Its barn siding and tin roof infuse the garden with character and charm.

The house is half a block from St. Helena's Main Street and lies within a five mile radius of dozens of signature wineries and restaurants. This proximity to Main Street gives you easy walking access(1/2 block - 4 blocks at most) to premium eateries, markets, and boutiques. A beautiful twenty minute drive over Spring Mountain finds you in Sonoma County, a lovely adjunct to your Napa Valley adventure.

We seek to keep our property in tip top shape by restricting rentals to a one-month minimum. Long-term rentals (3-6 months) are also welcome but NOT shorter-term(weekends). Weekly housekeeping included. No smoking, and sorry, no pets.

Keywords: Well-located cottage with mature garden and modern, relaxed vibe.

                      Year Purchased: 2005

                      About the owner: We are a San Francisco couple who became smitten with St. Helena when one of us had the opportunity to work there for a year. Our cottage is our favorite getaway. But when life and its obligations get in the way, we welcome renters looking for small town charm and a relaxing setting.
