St. Helena house description

Located on 1.5 acres, this beautiful wine country cottage is only 1 mile from the heart of downtown St. Helena. The entire home was lovingly renovated in 2007 to preserve the character and architectural detail of the original, dating back 1895. Luxurious furnishings, original woodwork, fir floors, high ceilings, and extensive use of rock-work, inside and out, make this a truly unique property.

The main cottage is about 2000 square feet. Two master suites, on opposite sides of the house, guarantee maximum privacy. Each has its own en suite bath. The french doors in the dining room lead to a small patio, our favorite spot for morning coffee. Deer can be spotted on the hill directly behind the house, and York Creek borders the property on the opposite side of the street.

Our home has its own wine cave, accessible from the foyer. Just like the big boys you'll no doubt visit, our miniature wine cave is built into the hill behind our house, and is the perfect place for wine tasting or a romantic dinner. No matter what the temperature outside, it is always nice and cool inside the cave.

This past year, we added a spectacular 1br 1ba guest house to the property, and the original tank house on the property was restored to become an indoor/outdoor porch. The tank house is nestled in the ponderosa pines and live oaks - we call it the tree house. Extensive decking has been added to join these three areas into a one-of-a-kind wine country compound. Guests have full access to the Tree House and deck area.

Please note that our property is located on a hill - the main cottage is all one level. There are exterior stairs leading up to a large deck, the Tree House and the guest suite/house.

The flat area across the street fronting york creek is also part of our property. In the winter and spring months the sound from the creek is amazing. Wild blackberries line the creek, and can be picked in mid-august (a favorite past time for locals), and make the best blackberry jam on the planet.

We do not recommend our property to people who are uncomfortable with stairs. Please note that we are a no-pet, non-smoking property (inside and outside). Our cottage and guest suite are not suitable for children.

If you are interested, please note answers to following frequently asked questions:
1. We do not rent for periods less than one month, and will respond only to inquiries for 1 month or more.
2. The cottage may rented separately, or with the guest suite, making it a 3ba, 3ba property.
3. The guest suite may not be rented separately (i.e. Without the main cottage/house).

Enjoy your trip to wine country!
