The Space

Enjoy the Napa Valley lifestyle from your own private estate nestled in a hidden valley just minutes from the world's finest wineries, spas and dining.

This beautiful 5,500 square foot Mediterranean style house is nestled in a hidden valley on 40 acres with 10 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon, hiking galore, a private lake, orchard and heated swimming pool with integrated jacuzzi hot tub. You'll have all the comforts of home with complete privacy and security.

The property is only 6 minutes from Calistoga but a world away. The paved private drive winds 1/2 mile through meadows and forest where you'll see small deer, rabbits, wild turkeys and tiny partridges. Hike into its pristine forests or to the summit with a breathtaking view of Mount St. Helena. The lake wildlife includes ducks, geese, egrets and blue heron; night sounds are frogs, owls and fish jumping. And the night star gazing is astonishing.

The house features 5 bedrooms, 4 1/2 bathrooms, large living room, library, wine cellar, family room, pool room, large gourmet kitchen, workout room and large fully screened in porch next to the kitchen/dining area plus a laundry room. The family room has a 3D HDTV with BluRay DVR plus Nintendo Wii with 4 remotes and a few fun multi-player games, living room & gym have HDTVs too. All TVs are flat screens with DirecTV DVR.

The 5 bedrooms include the Master Suite with a California King bed and large bathroom with his and hers vanities, steam shower, large Jacuzzi tub and separate compartment for the toilet & bidet. The other 4 Guest Bedrooms have Queens sized beds (2 Heavenly Beds and 2 Foam tops) with a woodland or lake view. Two bedrooms have private bathrooms with shower and the other two share a bathroom with a jacuzzi tub/shower. See photos for more detail.

The private 2 acre lake can be enjoyed from the 12' x 8' dock pad or use either of the two boats (electric 2-seater bass boat and canoe). Lake is perfect for fly fishing or cast fishing. Fishing gear available on site. The lake is filled with bass & sunfish so you can choose to keep or catch & release like we do (no license required). Biggest bass we've caught and returned to the lake weighed 2 lbs!

Front and back lawns are nice for family gatherings. Indoor/outdoor living spaces with French doors and large redwood deck on the lake side of the house. The pool is 20' x 40' with a jetted hot tub and electric pool cover.

Hike and explore the entire 40 acre property on mowed trails through forest and meadows. The entire property is surrounded by 7' high deer fencing and gated at the entrance for security and to protect the 10 acre working vineyard - the Cabernet Sauvignon grapes grown here are used in the prestigious Artemis brand of wine produced by Stags Leap Wine Cellars. The wine makers, vineyard managers and workers come and go throughout the growing season - May to fall's Crush - cultivating the grapes to perfection.

Town of Calistoga is at the top of the Napa Valley and features many world class restaurants, hot spring pools, health spas and of course famous wineries everywhere. Stop by the farmer's market on Saturdays, check out the Napa County fair grounds and race track for events or book a mud bath or massage at any of Calistoga's 10+ famous geothermal spas.

Easy access by car to other areas include 20 minutes to St. Helena or Santa Rosa, 40 minutes to Napa or Sonoma or 90 minutes to San Francisco or to the Pacific Ocean.

If OK with you, our friendly cat, Abbey, will stay in the house to keep you company. She uses a "doggie door" to go in and out at her leisure, and the housekeeper will take care of her food. So nothing for you to do.

Special Events may be possible but must be arranged upfront. Parking for 6 cars on pavement, plus additional parking for events except during winter rainy season. Garden keeper and pool man come once a week, house keeper arrives twice a week for light cleaning and to change bedding (unless complete privacy is requested).
