Our Tuscan Style Villa and Guest House is furnished with many works of art from around the world and hand painted murals to complete the ambiance. Enjoy a glass of wine on the covered patio while the three fountains echo in the courtyard. Parties or events not allowed. Pets welcome, $250 pet fee & signed wavier.

The space
Welcome to Aterno, a 33 acre working wine vineyard and luxurious vacation rental property. When the wrought iron gates open, you are greeted with nine acres of lush merlot vines on your left. Twenty rolling acres of beautiful cabernet comprise the other two thirds of this estate. All of the fruit produced here is sold to local, high end labels.

Two homes sit on the property with architecture inspired by Tuscan landscape. Travel up the quarter mile long, gently winding driveway to the Tuscan Villa, lined with over seventy Cyprus trees, growing at least twenty feet tall. Take in the surrounding views of gorgeous green countryside and rich vineyard landscapes as you reach the top. A shorter driveway lined with stone fruit trees and fragrant rosemary separates the Tuscan Villa from the Guest House, providing privacy for guests. Cyprus trees continue to surround the main home and guest house adding to the beauty and magnificence of this estate. The vineyard is steps away from the Villa, making this a unique and one of a kind experience for guests.

The entrance to the 3600 SF Tuscan Villa boasts grand hand carved wooden doors. Our Villa exudes elegance with fourteen columns that wrap around the villa and Spanish style roof. Beyond the front doors lies a clear view into the courtyard with three built in soft bubbling fountains and an enticing pizza oven surrounded with views of vineyards as far as the eye can see. Upon entering, you are greeted by travertine tiles, Central Coast sunlight and a beautiful Italian collectible chandelier supported by a hand painted el Fresca ceiling. Custom mirrors and a beautiful painting lines the walls of this grand entryway.

Past the entryway you will find the perfect place for happy hour. A gorgeous midnight black marble bar with purple accents, complete with a sink and barstools, invites you to sit and enjoy a glass of port or brandy from our custom wine glass collection. In the bar area you will also find a surround sound system that fills the entire home, inside and out, with your favorite music. Our four seater convertible poker table is the perfect place for card games and fun with friends and family.

Continuing into the home, the open floor plan is supported by elegant archways. As you step down into the sunken living room there is a baby grand piano lit by a stunning chandelier for all the music lovers in the family. Beautiful artwork and tapestries create a warm space that invites quality conversation. Cozy up on the couch with a cup of hot tea and a good book, or sit back and enjoy the soft glow of the fire while you sip on your favorite glass of wine or aperitif! The sofa in the living room also pulls out into a comfortable queen sized bed for guests to enjoy.

As you travel towards the kitchen, a second living space holds a wrap around leather couch and recliner with a TV and fireplace for family fun and entertainment. The open flow between the family room, dining room and kitchen allows for more quality time to be spent together. A Steve Kalar painted wall adds beauty and grace to this space.

The kitchen is fully loaded with granite countertops, a Wolf 6 burner range, large dual ovens, microwave, toaster oven and walk-in pantry. A large, 8 ft long island creates the perfect space to gather around and make memories with loved ones as you prepare a meal together. The overside island doubles as a built in bar to sit and converse with your favorite sous chef and enjoy charcuterie and a glass of vino. We invite you to entertain and break bread with your friends and family at our dining table that seats 8, and enjoy the 20 mile views through the double doors that lead out of the dining area as the sound of music and laughter fills the house.

Bedroom 1 has a queen sized bed with hand selected, solid wood collectible dresser and nightstands. Velveteen wine colored drapes let a soft light come through the window. Painted accents above the window and the hardwood flooring create an inviting warmth and there is plenty of closet space to unpack and feel at home.

Bedroom 2 holds two single beds with hand carved cherry wood frames. A sitting area with leather chairs makes a great place to sit and relax or change your shoes. The windows are dropped in gorgeous yellow drapery that casts a golden hue on the room and the ceiling is hand painted so while laying in bed you feel as though you’re staring into the heavens.

Bedrooms 1 and 2 share a full bathroom with a large walk-in shower and a beautifully tiled extra deep soaking tub, perfect for relaxing in this 40 acre vineyard home. A additional half bath just off the foyer features stunning artwork, custom mirror and vanity, and bold marble flooring.

Bedroom 3 is located adjacent to the kitchen and next to a full bath. This bedroom holds a comfortable trundle bed that can be set up as 2 twin beds or converted to a king bed, and is accented with cherrywood doors that can be found throughout the home. A full bath with glass top sinks is just off the kitchen and bedroom 3.

Entering the Master Bedroom, you are greeted by warm wood floors, a large walk in closet and a grand king sized bed. The hand carved solid wood bed frame, dresser and nightstands match the hand carved hearth and chocolate white marble that surrounds the fireplace.

The Master Bath is spacious with ample natural light, and continues the chocolate white marble, which houses his and hers vanity sinks and a beautiful jacuzzi tub set underneath a window with views of vineyards. An oversized shower lined with travertine tile boasts dual shower heads and a built in seat.

The Villa has a wrap around covered paved patio with bistro table for two, chaise lounge, two chairs and two love seats to sit and enjoy the views of Central Coast wine country.

Bask in the warm sunlight and take in the endless views as you sip your morning coffee on the patio, or take lunch outside and enjoy some of the best weather that California has to offer. The fountain based courtyard and large manicured lawn are a great place to entertain, or play a game of touch football with the family. Sit back, relax and enjoy the privacy of this gated and fenced thirty acre vineyard property. With breathtaking views from every angle, you won’t ever want to leave!

Taking the time to stargaze is a must! In the warm summer nights, the glistening stars twinkle above rolling vineyards. The Milky Way creates a beautiful blanket backdrop of stars as there is no light pollution. Enjoy this spectacular sight from the comfort of Aterno.

The Aterno Estate boast rolling slopes, broad terraces and loamy soil with spots of calcareous rock create the ideal condition for good grapes here. Good fruit is also largely due to the Templeton Gap, which is defined by it’s cooler nights produced by the ocean breeze that is blown in through the gap in the ridge line. The fog from the coast travels in during the evening and early morning, creating a pronounced marine influence that enhances the grapes, and then burns off during the day to let the warm sun in.

Travel down the driveway lined with fragrant rosemary, pomegranate and peach trees to the Tuscany inspired guest house. The two story Guest House features 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a terrace with views for 40 miles of beautiful vineyard countryside.

The quaint guest home has a gorgeous budding rose bushes that climbs the exterior of the home. The front door is solid wood and hand carved, covered by an awning that is supported by two columns. Columns continue to wrap the covered patio, adding an elegant and rich touch. Enjoy the shade on a warm summer day or step out onto the beautifully manicured lawn just off the patio, trimmed with hedges and dotted with twenty foot tall Cyprus trees. Take in the rolling vineyards and breathe in the fresh air.

Stepping inside, the living room is outfitted with a cozy couch and chairs, a solid wood armoire which houses a TV, and beautiful artwork collected from all over the world. Deep red tapestry drapes the windows and classic french doors open up and lead out to the covered patio. The couch in the living room pulls out into a comfortable queen bed for guests to enjoy.

The main floor living areas are divided by a large archway that supports the center of the house and creates an open flow between spaces. The dining room is furnished with a solid wood table that seats six. A unique, one-of-a-kind chandelier provides light overhead and the walls are adorned with artwork reminiscent of Italian wine county. Enjoy fine wine and good company with friends and family here.

The kitchen is fully equipped with a gas range, oven, toaster oven, microwave, dishwasher and fridge. A rolling island adds extra counter space to prepare meals, and a built-in bar with stools is perfect for enjoying a casual breakfast, or to converse with friends in the kitchen while making your favorite meal. Custom oak cabinets, tile floors, hand picked window coverings and beautiful views out of every window will transport you to straight to Italy.

The Master Bedroom is located upstairs and is outfitted with a comfortable king sized bed with high end bedding. Two windows open out to either side with views to the main house. Natural light and rich colors warm this cozy space. French doors lead out from the Master Bedroom and onto the terrace. We invite you to open up the French doors, let the breeze in and listen to the sounds of the countryside as you relax. The Master Bathroom is adjoined and has a large walk in shower and decorative mirror.

The second bedroom is also located upstairs with private access to the terrace. Two single beds with wrought iron frames are divided by a large window overlooking a bubbling fountain in this French country inspired space. Luxurious linens and window coverings add beauty, and an armoire and closet provide plenty of space to unpack and unwind.

A full bathroom is adjacent with a shower and tub, and continues the French country charm.
