Minutes from Downtown Calistoga, this 1940s residence is surrounded by nature and gardens designed by renowned Napa landscape architect Jonathan Plant. The property offers a peaceful environment for living and working from home, with a detached guest house as well as an artist studio/workshop in addition to the main house.
Set along a paved driveway behind private gates, the inspiring grounds include lush garden walking trails, mature redwoods and maple trees, and a shaded fern forest.
The residence is classic 1940 vibes throughout, with a metal roof, rich patina wood interiors true to the period design aesthetic, open beams, and high ceilings. The main floor spills onto expansive outdoor living decks where gorgeous sunsets over the Palisades and valley floor vineyards are fully appreciated.
The living room and formal dining room are designed in a great room style, with fir floors and a stone fireplace. The front entry opens to this beamed spectacular main room with peekaboo views of the eastern mountains of upper Napa Valley.
The kitchen is updated with custom cabinetry, open shelving, a stylish farmhouse sink, and quartz counter tops. An oversized kitchen island incorporates a butcher block counter, under-counter storage, and cookbook display shelving.
The kitchen opens to an informal dining area with retro honey-tone built-in cabinets and sideboard with period tile counter top, perfect for enjoying long morning coffees over garden and vineyard views.
A relaxing white and grey color palette and high-beamed ceiling complements the main bedroom, which has new carpet and fresh paint, mirrored wardrobe doors, storage, and access to the private view deck.
The loft is a true hide-away experience, with a picture window that overlooks the garden artist studio and lush forest beyond.
A one bedroom guest house, with wood frame design and a metal roof, is detached and accessed via stone pathways. The generous-sized space includes a sitting area, full bath, closets and view deck.
A light-filled detached artist studio and workshop doubles as a detached laundry room. The structure includes two additional storage and workshop spaces.
