This is a 5000 square foot home within a 5 acre estate in between Calistoga and St Helena, Napa Valley, California. The Selby Creek, which branches off of Napa River, runs along the length of the property. The home is in the middle of several Cabernet, Merlot and Sauvignon Blanc vineyards, in the heart of the most prized wine dirt in the valley.
In the back yard, you will find a lap pool, sun chairs, a house for the chickens where you can get fresh eggs as well as an orchard with a plethora of fruit trees: apple, cherry, lemon, peach, orange. We have a 3 bed organic vegetable garden which produces fresh herbs, fruits and vegetables. Lining the property is a creek which runs off of the Napa Valley River and separates the estate from Larkmead Vineyards. There is also a treehouse down by the river where you can enjoy couples yoga, a shaded lunch, tea, painting, or where kids can play. In the front yard, you may spend your afternoons strolling in the full rose garden which surrounds an outdoor fire pit where guests can roast marshmallows and look up at the stars. Adjacent to the house is a full barn, with a guest house, a ping pong room and a storage area.
