Pristine Country Property and Modern Farmhouse

Welcome to open sky and stunning vistas – including views of Mt. Tam and Mt. Diablo on a clear day. This pristine country property is located in the coveted Carneros region which straddles Napa and Sonoma counties. Its unique location and proximity to the Pacific Ocean, by way of the San Pablo Bay, creates a special micro-climate that is perfect for a wine country farm. Equidistant from the downtown areas of both Napa and Sonoma, it is a dream wine country retreat in an upcoming neighborhood. Enjoy land for gardens, proximity to wineries, near a regional bike path, and an ideal setting for entertaining. 

In just over a decade this parcel has gone from “down home” to “luxe farm” thanks to the stewardship and vision of a renowned builder and a large animal veterinarian. The estate has been transformed into a property beautiful enough to host weddings or opulent dinner parties, while retaining its sensibility as a working horse farm. 

An elegant barn, outdoor arenas, and custom horse stalls combined with a high-end farmhouse surrounded by gorgeously manicured grounds make this property a rare find. 

Recently renovated, the farmhouse is thoroughly modern but relevant to the landscape and appropriately upscale in its rural setting. With stained cedar “board & batten” exterior and Ipe decking, the quality materials set the tone for the level of construction starting at the entrance of the home. The footprint of the original farmhouse has been transformed into a new foyer and upper bedroom, while the additions of a charming breakfast nook and private office create pleasant vignettes along an airy corridor leading to the magnificent Great Room. The stylish kitchen and living area open onto a covered outdoor living space. Here, the continuity of materials and finishes create an indoor/outdoor experience. Upstairs are three bedrooms and two bathrooms, all recently done to designer specifications. Throughout, the finishes and craftsmanship adhere to the highest standards.  

The immaculate barn was constructed with the specifications of a fine home. It has large scale chandeliers and high windows for diffused natural lighting, adding to the rustic yet refined ambiance. Because of the barn’s exquisite finishes, this beautiful building could easily translate to a pool house, guest quarters, entertainment barn or wine making facility for a hobby vintner. Among its multi-functional spaces, the barn includes a veterinary “med room” with refrigerator and laundry, two offices, a tack & trophy room, and even a wet bar and kitchenette for hosting social events.

Currently home to several award-winning horses, this visionary and functional barn was designed and built by a passionate horse enthusiast and an equine vet. The 4 indoor/outdoor horse stalls have custom-made steel gates for a designer touch. Stone pavers line the barn floors creating a handsome interior that is upscale and dignified. In addition to the indoor/outdoor paddocks in the barn, there are additional horse accommodations outdoors including covered stalls and an arena.

Additional outbuildings include a fully contained 2-room office with built-ins and a private covered patio; two well houses with additional space for storage; and a tractor/gardening shed with covered parking that could be an art studio. The landscaping includes a vast expanse of velvety green lawn, over 75 olive trees, gorgeous stonework, and an array of oaks – some of which were grown from acorns. Landscape lighting creates an inviting atmosphere throughout the property and a grand fountain takes center stage, uniting the farmhouse Great Room with the outdoors.

This home is tucked in a rare tableau of the Carneros’s coveted landscape. Surrounded by Mahoney and Ceja vines, the backdrop of this country property is of natural beauty. From sunsets to distant mountaintops, the estate makes the most of its unique location.
