Why the Owner Chose Calistoga, CA, USA:
We purchased the property for the vistas and views. It had an old farm house, garage, stable and hen house, and lots of weeds. It was truly a project of love to develop the property. We began by planting our Petit Syrah vineyard in 2000. Next we took down the stable and hen house and built a two bedroom, two bath (1000 sq') guest house. We moved into the guest house and donated the old farm house to our local volunteer fire departments for training. They couldn't burn it down because of the beautiful old old trees shading it, but they did train new volunteers on things like cutting holes in a roof during a fire. It was fascinating to watch. After tearing down the farm house, we began construction on the 3800+ sq' main house in 2004. Our goal was to have a farm house that blended well into the country atmosphere on the outside, but was exquisite and sophisticated on the inside. We think we achieved our goal. We moved in January 2006. The pool, landscaping, wall, fencing took another year, and we still have a few things we'd like to do. Finally, we turned part (400 sq') of the garage into the 'guys' space with pool table, etc. We find women are very good pool players too! Perhaps the best part of all, is that every window and door looks out to something beautiful. There are many different species of birds that return every year. Butterflies, and hummingbirds love the colorful flowers. We have lived in New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco most of our lives so seeing a clear night sky is both stunning and a celebration. We pick our herbs and many vegetables from our raised beds. We pick seasonal fruits from our fruit trees, and best of all, we raise a glass of wine from our own grapes to toast the beauty at sunset every night.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The beauty of the vistas across the valley floor is breathtaking. The ever changing light on the mountains to the west, north and east makes the property an artist's dream. Even though we are on flat land and can look across the valley floor, it feels like we are surrounded by mountains. As one travels north in Napa Valley, the mountain ranges on each side get closer and, we think, more beautiful. More practical benefits include both a steam bath and dry sauna, many wood burning fireplaces, including one outdoors and a kitchen in which any chef would have fun.
