Property description

Modern luxury meets Napa Valley Wine Country ranch style in this beautifully remodeled property on 17 acres in a private valley 1,200 feet above Calistoga. The home is an elegant yet comfortable fully updated and beautifully decorated 6br/6ba modern ranch-style home on 17 private acres that share a common border between Napa and Sonoma Counties. The ranch is within minutes of the best of both Napa and Sonoma wineries and is the perfect place for family reunions, groups of friends, or companies looking for a private, yet accessible retreat.

Walking into the home you'll be immediately impressed by the warm oak flooring accented with beautiful art and mid-century modern touches. The main gathering area to the right as you walk in includes a slate fireplace, large Italian sofa and designer finishes as well as a second seating area with four club chairs overlooking the grounds with large Live Oak trees.

The adjacent dining area comfortably seats 12 and is also steps away from the fully stocked chef's kitchen, set apart by a 165 year-old 5" slab of California Walnut used for additional seating or a convenient serving area. With its commercial sized refrigerator and freezer, two dishwashers, 150 bottle wine refrigerator, Miele automatic coffee maker, and virtually every small appliance imaginable, any chef will love this kitchen!

The home includes six large suits, each with its own private bath. Five of the suites have King Beds with extremely comfortable mattresses and linens. One suite has two queen-size beds for additional sleeping capacity. The bathrooms are fully stocked with luxurious Restoration Hardware towels and Napa Valley Soap Company bath amenities. Four of the bedrooms have 44" wall or furniture-mounted LED TVs with DirecTV. All have blackout drapes for complete privacy and comfort.

The home has a 3-zone central air and heat system, Wi-Fi, DirecTV, and a Sonos sound system that channels your music throughout the home, as well as on the front patio and rear pool area.

The outside backyard of the property includes a 1-acre fenced area with large, deep fully modern solar heated pool with built-in lounging deck and spa surrounded by Restoration Hardware furniture and numerous shade umbrellas for relaxing days. By the pool area is a large Weber propane grill and Kamado ceramic egg smoker. Sonos speakers provide the opportunity to create that perfect ambience!

The front deck is also complete with Restoration Hardware outdoor sofa, dining table and lounge chairs for relaxing and enjoying the view of the spectacular Mayacama Mountains. Along with the Sonos speakers, umbrellas and propane fire pit, it's the perfect place to relax in the sun listening to your favorite artists, enjoy breakfast as the sun comes up, or entertain guests for a truly spectacular gourmet dinner.

Down the walkway is a regulation-size newly refinished tennis court. The property comes complete with ample sports equipment, hiking trails, tree swing & hammock and so much more.

We've heard from so many who have rented this property that they originally arrived with restaurant reservations for each night of their stay only to end up canceling them and staying in to cook and enjoy the private time. They just didn't want to leave the property! We can also provide myriad resources for planning your trip, including a personal introduction to Melanie Schwartz of Booker & Butler, a Wine Country concierge who creates experiences that are adventurous, indulgent and uniquely your own.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: I was born in Midland, Texas to an oil man and his wife. The forth of four children and only boy. I attended Texas A&M and love to follow the Aggies sport seasons. I currently live between Texas and California, and prefer the dry Summers of California to the humid Texas Summer.

Why the Owner Chose Calistoga, CA, USA:
The minute a saw this property it reminded me of the Hill Country in Texas, with its large Oak trees, rock outcroppings, and Manzanita. Built by Richard and Marjorie Patterson (parents of the writer, James Patterson) in 1981, the residence was in pristine condition, although it was in need of an update. It took the better of 2011 to fully gut and remodel the interior of home to its current condition. In 2014 the pool and rear yard area of the house was remodeled. I love this property because it is so peaceful and quiet, yet very close to Calistoga. I love to entertain and this is the perfect house and property for it.

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
1. Private estate large enough for a big family to all be together without being on top of each other 2. It is 7 minutes down the hill to downtown Calistoga, yet when you are at the property it feels like you are in the middle of the country. 3. The property is perfectly situated to take advantage of the entire Wine Country, both in Sonoma and Napa Counties.
