This AIA design award-winning residence combines the refinement of exquisite design, perfectly balanced with the warmth and comfort of rural rustic elements. Beautifully sited on 60 +/- acres, its serene hilltop venue offers show-stopping views of neighboring vineyards, protected open space and the valley floor beyond. Located only 10 minutes from the charm of St. Helena’s downtown, this modern sophisticated Napa Valley retreat magically embodies luxury, relaxation, and the simplicity of European country living that radiates on an intimate human scale. The main residence takes the form of a pocket village, with distinct living spaces cleverly connected to each other through intimate outdoor corridors that at night invite one to experience the stars, moon, and the silent air. This wonderfully versatile layout provides flexible living options as the owner’s needs evolve over time. A wine tasting room morphs into a media room; the tower’s lower level becomes a wine cellar or future in-law suite; the upper tower rooms, now an office and studio, later accommodate overflow sleeping or a meditation room. The layout and the remarkable consistency of materials redefines indoor/outdoor and creates a purity of form that embraces transition and invites one to go beyond the traditional. Needless to say, this inspired property boasts a long list of amenities and special touches, but its greatest luxury is the abiding sensation of the setting’s soul, its engaging sense of place, and its enveloping solitude.
