St. Helena house description

This beautiful mid-century modern home sits on the Rutherford bench in the center of the Napa valley. Located on 2.5 acres, (of which 1.1 acres are a mature Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard) and with views of the valley and Mt. Saint Helena, this is a place of peace and beauty perfect for the couple looking for a retreat, a young family looking for fun and freedom or a group of friends wanting to enjoy each other's company.

This 2800+ sq. ft. home has vaulted ceilings with giant windows that look out onto a garden with mature trees, vineyards and Flora Springs winery. The living room has a large wood burning/ gas fireplace for those cozy fall and winter days and nights. There are 3 beautifully appointed bedrooms each with private, newly renovated bathrooms.

For those who like to cook there is a fabulous new Poggenpohl chef's kitchen with a Sub Zero refrigerator and a 42 inch Thermador professional range. The kitchen also has a large island that seats 6 and a large and comfortable sofa that can be made into a king-size bed for additional guests if the bedrooms are not enough.

Walking out of the 8ft. sliding glass doors from the dining room or the living room will bring you into the garden. Have lunch under the rose and wisteria covered pergola that will seat up to 12 people comfortably, or wander into the pool area for a bar-b-que or a swim. The hot tub looks out over the vineyards and at night you can see almost every star in the galaxy. If you are tired, read a book in the hammock. If you want an activity, play bocce ball or shuffleboard. The children can busy themselves in the playhouse with the little-person sized kitchen or they can climb into the tree house over the pool and hoist the pirate flag. Walks can be taken up to Flora Springs winery or down one of a number of quaint country roads. There are also a number of bike trails and running paths for those who want more vigorous exercise. Lake Hennessy is about 15 minutes away for those who want to go fishing, or drive up to Mt. St. Helena for a climb, or wake up early one morning and take a hot air balloon over the valley with breakfast at the end. But, a trip to the Napa Valley is not complete without visits to our wonderful wineries. We are in walking distance of many including Whitehall, Franciscan, Kelham, Milat, Livingston, Hall, Heitz and Raymond- just to name a few.

                            I have stayed at this property a number of times and completely love it. It is absolutely gorgeous and well-maintained inside and out and I cannot recommend it highly enough, I only wish I could give it 10 stars! I find myself coming back here again and again, as other houses in the area simply don't compare. Many of my friends have stayed here on my recommendation, and all have been so excited about their visits here and it has exceeded their expectations as well. The owners are helpful, accommodating, friendly, and easy to work with. The house is newly-renovated with a beautiful new kitchen and redone bathrooms with custom Italian tiles. The home features large, expansive windows that look out to the grounds and the vineyards. The living room is well-decorated with a cozy fireplace. We never watch TV while we are there, but there are a couple of flat-screen TVs available. The grounds are immaculately landscaped with many areas of interest which makes it perfect for entertaining. Imagine waking up to the mist rising over the vineyards and having coffee on your private sitting area off of the master bedroom - complete with fire pit! Long lunches, BBQs, cocktail hour and dining with family and friends are perfect under the pergola. The hot tub and swimming pool area is completely fenced, so safe for families with small children, and faces the vineyards for a private, secluded retreat. The miniature wood house, tree house, bocce ball court etc. make this an extremely family-friendly environment that my two-year-old loves. I have booked this house for romantic,serene getaway weekends for two, family weekends with other friends with young children, and also for a shower weekend with girlfriends. It is completely versatile! It would be an ideal place to rent as a "base camp" while attending a family wedding in the wine country, and also for a honeymoon spot. It is just around the corner from Dean and DeLuca, and a short distance from the town of St. Helena, definitely walkable. If you are active, you can walk out the front door and ride your bicycles, take a run or walk through the vineyards. You will be in the heart of the wine country, with many attractions, restaurants, activities, but why would you ever want to leave this house! One tip - book as early as possible.

                            Recommended for: Families with young children, girls getaway, age 55+, people with disabilities, families with teenagers, sightseeing, romantic getaway.

                            I’ve stayed at this property multiple times, most recently with a group of friends over New Years. It’s the kind of place you want to keep coming back to. My wife and I got married and had our honeymoon here several years ago. It was the perfect setting--ceremony under the pergola, cocktails by the pool, dinner and dancing outside on the beautifully landscaped lawn—and a wonderful celebration for all of our friends and family. We are huge fans of mid-century modern design and architecture and this house is a prime example. The house feels light and airy, with large glass windows, and the flow between indoor and outdoor spaces is just right. The kitchen and bathrooms were recently renovated and are spectacular. The kitchen is a great hub for entertaining groups of friends. The grounds are beautiful, immaculately groomed, and surrounded by vineyards. One of the things we love are the many different nooks or areas where you can have good conversation, drink wine, play shuffleboard, read a book, or whatever you like! It is a private, quiet, and contemplative setting. And when you feel like going out, it’s a few minutes drive to downtown St. Helena, a charming town, with good shopping and restaurants. We’re fairly active, and a highlight of our stays is going for runs and long walks on the country lanes among all the local vineyards. You just walk out the front door, and it’s like you’re instantly in the Tuscan countryside. Sitting in the hot tub at night, watching the stars, in the midst of the beautiful vineyard is truly an experience not to be missed!

                            I loved staying here so much I've returned again and again...and I don't want to let my secret out to the world so it gets too difficult to schedule, but I will pay it forward and let someone else enjoy the gem like I've enjoyed. There is nothing like waking up here to the mist hovering over the vines...in the cold weather I build a fire and stare out the windows, in the summer, drink the coffee outside for a perfect start to my day and the heat comes early. I've had stays of quiet solitude here, some friend time (less solitude, more laughs) with al fresco conversations fueled by wine and lit by stars, and family weekends dragging the kids out pool for dinner after hours of swimming and lounging. The house itself feels upscale and friendly, modern -- inviting not cold and stark (feels Eichler-esque), clean, updated and well cared for and the gardens and grounds are as well. The landscaping and vineyards are enjoyed from both inside the home and outside. Ideal location near quaint main street St. Helena for restaurants and shopping but secluded enough down a country lane to feel like a million miles away from my busy city life. I always want to stay longer but real life calls. Ive rented VRBO houses in Wine Country, Tahoe, London and New York and this one stays on my favorites list. Pics are accurate, and are only 2D so the experience is even better than that pictured, description accurate, owners delightful and easy to deal with and trustworthy.

                            Nestled in seclusion among the best cabernet vineyards in the valley – this expansive wine country retreat was our ultimate family escape! We embraced Napa living in this inviting, light flooded home with elegantly simple modern decor (recently remodeled with a touch of urban sensibility, I might add!). We began each day sipping cappuccinos on the patio overlooking the Alioto-Pier vineyards in the warm morning sun and toasted our good fortune every evening with Napa's finest while dining under the grape adorned pergola! This house became our personal resort – playing bocce & croquet between dips in the vineyard pocketed pool & hot tub. With Dean & Delucca literally around the bend and the country glitz of St Helena within strolling distance – we were never far from culinary and retail temptation – only problem was that we never wanted to leave the property! A perfect place for a romantic escape, a family retreat or a social gathering... In a word, this place is bliss – an oasis for all ages and tastes.

                            This St. Helena retreat has been one of our favorite spots to visit for many years! Our honeymoon started with a week here and we have been fortunate to come back about every year since. (Now our 9-year son looks forward to our trips there.) The house itself is lovely to stay in, but the real magic here is outside the walls. A pool, hot tub, bocci court, shuffleboard, fruit trees, berry bushes & grape vines all allow for a lush setting with plenty of hidden little spots to tuck away with a book while the kids frolic sans shoes and enjoy their own private fort in the double-decker tree house. It is ideally located close to many vineyards and just a couple miles to St.Helena town center. There are too many culinary delights to list that are within minutes of this retreat! One must simply explore and enjoy. This is an incredible place just waiting for more lucky people to create special memories in an ideal setting!

                          Year Purchased: 1995

                          About: We are a family of 5 with 3 children under the ago of 12. Born and raised in San Francisco, our home in St. Helena has become a place of peace and solitude as well as a gathering spot for our friends and family. We are currently residing in Rome, Italy but, look forward to our return to St. Helena and our beautiful haven.

                          Why St. Helena:
                          The clean simple lines of this house bring you back in time to the freshness and fun of the 1960's. The home was build in 1961 with the most beautiful views over the Rutherford Bench, Flora Springs Winery and Mt. St. Helena. The property is flat and easily accessible to everyone. It sits in the middle of 2 acres with beautiful views and, for those few months in autumn during crush, there is the most marvelous scent of grapes. It is a special home away from home.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          Our home is unique in that it caters to everyone at every time in their lives. Because we are raising our own children here, there are the definite markings of childhood; a tree house, a play house, small fruit trees for small people, board games of all types, and little knick knacks here and there. It is also, however, a home for couples who want a little beauty and sophistication. Additionally, our home is wheelchair accessible, all on one floor and very easy for anyone with, or without mobility concerns.
