Nestled naturally into the undulating landscape of Wine Country, this estate was created over time and feels as much a part of the terrain as the trees and vineyards that surround it. Though the approximately 5,500-square-foot-residence takes its inspiration from timeless Old World villas with warm stucco walls draped in emerald ivy, rugged barrel-tiled rooflines, Venetian plaster surfaces, decorative wrought-iron accents, regal French doors, and clerestory windows – it is decidedly contemporary, with clean modern lines found throughout the sophisticated interiors with iconic views.

Anchored by a main level that includes a majestic great room and a superior kitchen, the three-bedroom home, with a wine cellar, a gym, and a lavishly outfitted media room on the lower level. As the land gently rolls downhill, it reveals a truly stunning view of the approx. 23 vibrant acres, vines and mountains in the distance.

Indoor and outdoor living are inextricably linked here. Bathed in gentle northern light, the master suite is accompanied by a secret garden and a secluded spa hidden behind a stone wall. Extending the living spaces of the main residence is a marvelous raised terrace ideal for both tranquil relaxation and the grandest of entertaining. The olive lined paths leads to the alluring swimming pool and its sunny terra-cotta-hued terrace which is overlooked by an inviting, one-bedroom guesthouse.

The manicured property is sustainable and autonomous, with raised garden beds, a family fruit orchard and 60 olive trees. Premium certified organic grapes – approximately three acres of Zinfandel and approximately seven acres Syrah – are included, with two wells and solar panels that provide 100 percent of the estate’s power. The detached two-car garage includes a Tesla powering station and an additional stone parking area blends into the landscape with stone walls and crystal clear fountains. The enveloping land also offers dedicated open space and equestrian trails.
