With more than 400 wineries and tasting rooms, endless rolling hills of the beautiful romantic countryside and sublime weather all year long, it’s no wonder why Napa Valley reigns as the preeminent wine country destination in all of North America. Yet life in Napa is so much more than being one of the world’s most famous wine regions. It offers a lifestyle characterized by its small-town feel with big-city offerings. A casual yet refined sophistication that prizes a laid back luxury without compromise.
Quaint coffee shops, farm-to-table and Michelin-starred restaurants, thriving entertainment and visual arts, boutique shopping and proximity to both snowy slopes and ocean waves are just some of the extraordinary lifestyle benefits enjoyed by Napas lucky residents. Life in Napa is luxury on a grand scale this stunning modern farmhouse on the highly coveted Big Ranch Rd corridor is the quintessential Napa Valley abode.
The interiors of this 8,680 sqft home infuse modern features and clean lines with evocative rustic accents, including beautiful natural wood in the floors and a light earthy color pallet that is simple, serene and sophisticated. In the great room, a 19-foot cathedral vaulted ceiling creates a sense of grandeur that echoes the expansiveness of the California sky soaring above. The gorgeous surrounding nature and vineyard views are embraced through the floor to ceiling glass doors and an exquisite marble fireplace is a glamorous contrast to the pastoral shiplap walls.
Modern country glamour reigns supreme in the elegant and spacious chef’s kitchen. In the local farm-to-table spirit, spend an afternoon tending your raised vegetable garden, bringing in the days haul to prepare a feast of fresh and delicious local favorites on the gorgeous Calcutta countertops. When entertaining larger groups, the two butler pantries will come in handy and while Cabernet may be king in this valley, you’ll have a flavor for every palette on hand in your 650-bottle temperature-controlled wine cellar off the dining area.
In the main house, four spacious bedrooms suites, stylishly appointed and filled with California sunlight from oversized windows overlooking the beautiful gardens and romantic country vistas. Two of the suits are dedicated masters with generously sized bathrooms clad in ultra-chic Carrera or Calcutta marble.
Equal to the main house in style and comfort, the 1,000-square-foot poolside guesthouse will delight guests with a private retreat to call their own. In addition to the two-bedroom suites, each with a private entrance, an alluring outdoor living room offers a perfect space to comfortably luxuriate in the perfect climate, complete with a full wet bar and 72” TV. Across the pool two towering, stately palm trees stand boldly above the skyline adding a dramatic tropical flair to the rural landscape.
An essential element to any California lifestyle is embracing the great outdoors and this property offers ample opportunities to take advantage of the near-perfect year-round climate. Nestled between the main house and guesthouse, conveniently next to the edible garden, is an incredible alfresco dining area complete with a full outdoor kitchen that includes a built-in grill, bar, and a cozy wood-burning fireplace. Toast the Napa Valley sunset with glasses of local Cabernet and saver the countryside atmosphere from under the wooden pergola covering.
Countless more outdoor living opportunities can be found throughout the property. Begin the day with the relaxation and satisfaction that come from tending your own vegetable garden. There is something indescribably delightful about enjoying the fruits of your own labor and the double raised beds make the work that much more enjoyable. Spend the afternoon playing a few rounds on the bocci ball court as dinner sizzles on the nearby grill. In the evening when the sun has set a slight chill turns the night air crisp, gather around the fire pit to enjoy the fellowship of friends and family under the brilliant starry sky.
