3100 Old Sonoma Rd , Napa, California 94558
A singular estate of tranquility, privacy, and majestic views in every
direction, this knoll-top Napa property redefines the word Home. A
legacy residence of peerless vistas and timeless quality, it is more than a
private retreat it is a lifestyle.
From the homes gently contoured site of more than 34 acres, the dramatic panorama embraces Napa Valley, Mt. Diablo, the San Francisco Bay, the storied skyline and sparkling lights of downtown San Francisco, and around to Mt. Tamalpais, Sonoma, and the gentle rolling hills of the Mayacamas. The view is a masterpiece, a painting that changes continually through the hours of the day and the pageant of the seasons.
Designed to maximize this spectacle, the residence is contemporary in character, with walls of glass opening onto generous patios, lawns, and decks. Exceedingly comfortable for very private day-to-day living, the home is equally suited to lavish entertaining.
From the entry gate, the driveway winds through the estates two-acre boutique vineyard pinot noir, merlot, and varietals that enjoy the rich terroir of the Los Carneros AVA and past the personal Ramspur winemaking facility. Arriving at the hilltop residence with its sweeping prospect, you are in a world apart.
With impeccable attention to details and finishes, from the Connecticut bluestone front landing and nine-foot entry doors to the soaring ceilings and polished travertine floors, the open-concept design extends through the homes stunning rooms to the dazzling vistas beyond. Every space, indoors and out, is fully realized for enjoyment. The gracious formal living room opens to a huge curved ipe deck. The kitchen is both a professional chefs dream and the social hub of the house, with an adjoining media center. The master suite, with tray ceiling, fireplace, office, luxurious bath and, of course, wraparound views, occupies its own wing. There are seven woodburning fireplaces, a wine cellar, a formal dining room that can easily accommodate 14, and a sublime top- floor library overlooking the neighboring Truchard Vineyards.
The estates grounds exceed all superlatives. Mature oaks and manicured gardens designed by acclaimed landscape architect Walter Guthrie, create a verdant backdrop for entertaining, recreation, and relaxation. In addition to the swimming pool, infinity-edge spa, and numerous terraces, there is a loggia complete with fireplace, pizza oven, and outdoor kitchen. Additional structures include the personal winery with patios and climate controlled rooms for fermenting, bottling, and storage, plus a studio building suitable for art, yoga, office, or gym. There is an oil-producing olive orchard, a rose garden, and a resident herd of goats to maintain the propertys grassy acreage.
Just five minutes from the nearest world-class winery, and ten minutes from Napa and the Napa County Airport, for general aviation, air taxi service, private and corporate jets, and charter flights, this is a quiet property, away from road noise and city hubbub. You can hear the birds that occupy the oaks and pass overhead on the Pacific Flyway. Hot air balloons float silently above the valley. Some days the marine layer settles among the hills so your private hilltop feels like an island floating in the clouds.
Close to hiking, golf, and fine dining, this legacy estate is a home for art and artful living. With exquisite privacy, convenience, luxury, and comfort, this is Napa County living at its very finest.
