8424 SAINT HELENA HWY, NAPA, CA
Sold on behalf of the Liquidating Trustee – Between Rutherford and Oakville, on Saint Helena Highway – and in the very heart of the legendary Napa Valley – you’ll find a sprawling 5-acre estate with a 5,700 +/- square foot French farmhouse topped with a dramatic stone tower, from which you can survey your very own producing vineyard designed and managed by David Abreu. When you call this 5-acre vineyard estate home, you’ll be halfway to the 10-acre requirement to become a winery!
The estate’s extensive grounds transport you to another time and place, with a spot for every mood. The pool area is romantically walled, with olive trees and a lawn that call to mind a European park rather than a pool deck. Elsewhere, get lost amongst beautifully-manicured gardens, meandering trellised walkways, calming water features, seating alcoves and even a bocce ball court.
The European-style farmhouse was custom-built with materials imported from France, and features three ensuite bedrooms, three full baths and three half-baths. Two attached casitas boast one bedroom & one bathroom each. Arched doorways, stone walls, exposed-beam ceilings and old-world iron chandeliers express an ageless, immersive style that’s as beautiful as it is comforting.
But this home’s beauty is more than skin deep. The dramatic great room features a soaring, double-height vaulted ceiling, a massive marble fireplace and a large loft; the eat-in kitchen boasts Viking appliances, custom cabinetry, a built-in espresso machine and an enormous walk-in pantry; even the great-room-adjacent patio has separate living & dining spaces, a bar area, a stone fireplace and a built-in barbecue and pizza oven.
Premiere Estates Auction Company will be auctioning this gorgeous property on behalf of the liquidating trustee on August 4th, 2016…don’t miss your chance to own this unique, luxurious vineyard estate.
