Property description

The owners, an architect and artist, built this modern home over time on a hidden lot, conveniently located down a private lane just four blocks from Saint Helena’s Main Street. It sleeps a maximum of 8 guests with 3 baths.This has been our family home for 18 years. The interaction between the architecture and landscape design creates a relaxed California indoor/outdoor living experience.

The house features stained-concrete floors, galvanized metal finishes, stucco, rustic wood beams, re-purposed barn doors & windows, and antique light fixtures.
Furnishings include one-of-a-kind finds, such as the beautifully restored bamboo living room set, as well as pieces that have been passed down through several generations.

The living room has a flat screen TV with DVD/Blu-ray, a wood burning fireplace, 9' tall French doors, a beautiful chandelier and a grand piano. A separate dining room is adjacent to the cook's galley kitchen, which is outfitted with a wide range of utensils and kitchenware as well as a Thermadore gas range and hood, Sub- Zero refrigerator/freezer and a dishwasher. The first-floor bedroom has an eastern king sized bed in a French-sleigh frame and adjacent bath. This floor also has a laundry room with a washer and dryer.
The vaulted-ceiling second floor master bedroom has a cal king bed and ceiling fan and new plush carpet. Wake up to morning birdsong and sun light pouring through an antique window with wavy glass panes and an old key hole from its’ former life as a door. There is also a bath and secluded deck. Additionally, there is an open loft that shares the second floor with the master bedroom. The loft has new wool carpet, curtains for privacy and an American 1850's antique four poster double bed.

The separate cottage has a private entrance. It has a queen bed and bath with tile shower and is a short walk under a covered patio to the main house kitchen side door entrance.

All beds have feather comforters and pillows. The four bed sizes are eastern king, cal king, queen and a double.

The main portion of the house is air-conditioned, with the exception of the living room addition, designed to be cooled by natural ventilation through 9 foot high French doors with pocket copper screen doors. The cottage has an efficient and quiet Rinnai heater and ceiling fan (no ac). There is Wi-Fi throughout.

Outdoor spaces include a sunny front yard behind a privacy creating waxy-privet hedge. There is a casual, partially covered outdoor dining area with charcoal barbecue. This space is easily accessible from the kitchen and cottage. The living room views a heritage English walnut tree which shades the terraced area inviting you to relax on lounge chairs outdoors. A third, sunny outdoor patio area provides another table with umbrella and lounge chairs.

In summary, with six people, each two-some will have a bedroom on a separate floor or the cottage with adjacent baths. If complete privacy is not a concern, and there is a willingness to get cozy around the dining room table a maximum group of eight can be accommodated by using the 4th bed, located in the cozy loft bedroom on the 2nd floor that opens off the stairway. Curtains can be drawn to provide visual privacy.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: Eighteen years ago we came across a 150-year-old vacant lot hidden in the middle of a residential block in Saint Helena. We jumped at the chance to live there, and designed and built this contemporary home with a nod to the iconic western storefront with metal roofs and siding one sees around town.

Why the Owner Chose Saint Helena, CA, USA:
Location and privacy. Walk to vineyards, specialty food and wine stores, bakery & coffee shops, farmers market, playgrounds, great restaurants, cinema, luxury shopping, tennis & bocce courts and a health spa with a pool.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Modern, unique architecture in a close-in yet private location. This comfortable gathering place allows guests to easily enjoy themselves without a car, creating a casual and relaxing atmosphere.
