About Jim Stone
Patti and Jim Stone split their time between Austin, Texas and St. Helena, California. We have been visiting the Napa Valley area since the mid 1970's and would love to share our favorite restaurants, wineries and suggested activities with you.
Jim Stone purchased this House in 2011
Why Jim Stone chose St. Helena
It was love at first sight with this beautiful and historic home right in the heart of the Napa Valley wine country. It’s close to everything we enjoy exploring here. And yet it’s a very private and quiet property surrounded by vineyards and a creek that flows year round. It’s just a short jaunt into the bustling and charming St. Helena, the beautiful Silverado Trail, and all the excellent food, wine and beauty the valley has to offer. It’s close to both serious hike/bike trails and old fashioned bike rentals, major bocce tournaments and the farmer’s market at the local elementary school, and a library with a five foot rocking horse in the children’s wing along with frequent book signings. Backing up to two historic Beringer vineyards, it’s fun to look up and realize the rows are full of workers quietly tending the vines. We have learned a lot about good farm management from our kitchen table. There are so many wineries old and new to learn about and enjoy. And so many sunny afternoons to then enjoy lazing by the pool. Coming from Texas, we especially love wrapping up in blankets by the outdoor fireplace and looking up at the billions of stars in the night sky. And yes, that is our own teeny tiny vineyard across the road from the house. Wanting to grow your own grapes is sort of contagious out here. We even had our first harvest last year. Which we have no idea what to do with, but are learning:) We love sharing our home with friends and family. We hope you will enjoy it too!
What makes this House unique
From the moment you walk in to the spacious yet homey entry, you feel the good energy of being in a house that has grown and been adapted for over a hundred years. Much of it is brand new. All of it is updated, but it has a history that hasn’t been forgotten or discarded. Or imposed. It feels like a real farmhouse because it is. We have seen the hand hewn redwood studs under the new shiplap for ourselves. It feels like a home base. A place where you can really relax. We love being able to be anywhere we want in the valley in no time at all. Some of the best wine and food in the world is ready to be savored here in some of the most beautiful country in the world. What is not to like??? Just pinch us! Then there are the age old vines just over the fence - so close you feel you could almost touch them, the creek that rushes with water year round, the original long side porch and huge walnut tree over the bocce court. We love lazing in the sun after a big night out, taking a dip in the pool, gathering around the table laughing and eating under the stars, playing billiard games punctuated with cheers for our favorite sports teams, staying up all night determined to finish a 1,000 piece jigsaw puzzle, walking to town or going for a long walk/run/bike ride followed by a visit to Model bakery for a rewarding treat. Finally reading that book we’ve been carrying in our luggage. Or, who knows, maybe we could actually sleep in for a change. Or work on that book we’ve been meaning to write. Or just hang out with friends we hardly ever get to see much less pay attention to. And we especially love that great outdoor fireplace at night for savoring all the above under the stars....just to name a few things! The northern California wine country is huge but this property is close to everything. And still a retreat.
