Nestled in the middle of the internationally acclaimed Wine Country sits a rustic little villa recently remodeled with all the modern conveniences of a new home. We fondly call this getaway “The Nest” because of how it sits perched high above world famous vineyards. You’ll feel like lovebirds escaping to your own cozy romantic retreat watching the sunset over the award winning vineyards of the world famous Wine Country all while sipping the finest nectar in the world that this valley has to produce!
This exclusive one-acre property is located in the middle of the Wine Country. It’s rough rocky hillside was finessed by it’s former owner, a Sicilian artisan, who tamed the terrain carving out unique vista points with a series of rock walls and staircases reminiscent of his home county and the hillside villas of Tuscany. This little rustic villa was recently rebuilt to include modern amenities. It’s expansion was designed by a Marin architect to enhance one very important feature - the views! The home integrates clean modern design with a rustic touch, such as a rock wall kitchen, travertine floors and a cellar door to a loft bedroom as a nod to the terroir’s history. The property was excavated to help build part of the Winery across the road which is one of the oldest wineries in the valley, surviving prohibition. It’s an easy stroll to sample some of the valley’s history and tantalize your taste buds with a plethora of wines.
This cozy retreat is your home in the Wine Country. Rest, relax and enjoy the vineyard views as you curl up on the leather couch to take a Nap after a day of tasting in the hot sun. You’ll enjoy whipping up culinary creations while enjoying the vineyard views from the kitchen. There are new stainless steel appliances, granite slab countertops, and the cabinets are stocked so you can cook for you and your loved one and your guests. The bedroom is designed for Romance. Wake up warm and cozy as you watch the fog whisper through the vines or from your pillow stargaze through the skylight. The views make you feel like the lovebird you are enjoying all the sights and sounds of this beautiful valley. Escape to your little villa and enjoy all the best Wine Country has to offer!
About the home:
The crown jewel is the beautiful living room with high ceilings that boasts 6 picture windows overlooking the valley and vineyards below. Tastefully appointed area rugs cover newly laid travertine tiles throughout the house. The kitchen boasts a brand new stainless steel refrigerator, oven, dishwasher, microwave and coffee maker. Beautiful granite countertops adorn the kitchen counters and the bathroom sink. The kitchen cabinets hold enough wine glasses, plates & silverware for 2 people for a month, or for entertaining many guests.

The bathroom is truly one-of-a-kind! The clean lines, views of nature and floor to ceiling tile shower make it a comfortable, cozy space.
