This rare estate with commanding views of the Palisades Mountains is a stroll to world class wineries like Chateau Montelena and just minutes away from St. Helena and the town of Calistoga, famous for its luxurious resorts and spas and the new playground in Napa Valley for the rich and famous. The owner made many trips to Paris, the South of France, and Venice to source finishes and then designed a Villa to accommodate his acquisitions. “I was inspired by a famous Parisian Home, the Nissim De Camondo, which is owned by a great lover of beauty and perfection, who left a remarkable record of the 19th and 20th century “art of living” set in 18th century surroundings. The main home and guest cottage beckon the elite with an artistic sensibility for which quality; comfort, intimacy, attention to detail and privacy are paramount. A unique and spectacular property providing over 4 acres in a stunning setting with beautifully landscaped gardens, and vast stretches manicured lawns, perfect for hosting large gatherings.
Some interior moldings were hand cast using original pieces from the William Randolph Hearst collection, while others incorporated an assortment of 19th century plaster reliefs purchased in Paris. The nine fireplace surrounds, staircase railings contribute to the authentic environment of a 19th century country residence.
The main residence has four bedrooms, four full baths and one half bath. Truly a chef inspired residence, there are four interior and three exterior kitchens for a seasonal approach to cooking and entertaining.
Gracious limestone stairs deliver you to a Hollywood style pool, considered one of Napa County’s oldest and deepest pools. A beautifully appointed cabana house is complete with a large lounging area and fireplace.
Separated from the activities of the main residence, and tucked into the hillside is a private guest cottage with two bedrooms, each with its own en-suite bathroom. This spacious but open plan is an intimate haven for family and friends and will comfortably accommodate four people.
This chef-inspired residence has a unique seasonal kitchen design with four interior kitchens, two outdoor kitchens and a hearty organic garden, creating a wonderful wine country getaway year round.
The private formal grounds feature vast stretches of lawn, a Venetian garden wall finished with antique doors, parterre gardens and strolling paths, limestone stairs up to a Hollywood pool, spa and cabana house.
