Just minutes from downtown Napa, this modern architectural retreat, built in 2005 by famed architect Farhad Ashftoeh, sits on just over 6 acres overlooking the signature rolling hills and your own cabernet grapes. Set far back from the street and behind unassuming gates, enter down the 400-foot driveway to this modern Mediterranean estate. The pebbled circular driveway boasts hundreds of lavender bushes, an orchard with exotic fruits, an organic vegetable garden, a calming fountain and sitting area to enjoy gardening, an afternoon glass of wine, or to entertain amongst nature. Behind imported Moroccan wood doors, enter to one of the few modern homes in the area, with the most up-to-date features and everything you need for fine Napa living. Soaring ceilings and Bulgarian limestone throughout the living room and dining room give this 5 bedroom 4.5 bath sleek home luxurious indoor/outdoor living. The common living spaces feature floor-to-ceiling windows and the dining room wall showcases a hand built ‘wine library’ that holds up to 1,000 bottles. The main floor’s open floor plan also consists of a family room, breakfast area, and open SieMatic kitchen with a Viking range and Sub-Zero refrigerator, two Miele dishwashers, and ceasar-stone countertops. Downstairs you will also find 3 guest bedrooms, complete with their own access to the natural surroundings, 2 full baths, and a powder room with a Venetian glass chandelier, laundry and 3-car garage. Walk up the floating stainless steel and metal handmade staircase to the second floor where you will find an open loft-like office, the master suite and an additional bedroom. The master boasts a huge walk in closet, vanity and a serene bathroom fit for a spa with heated floors, digitally controlled toilet and a separate soaking tub and shower. Additionally, French doors open to a private balcony overlooking the vineyard that spans the length of the room and bathroom. The backyard features unparalleled views of your very own 5 acres of cabernet grapes, planted in 2001, which produce wine rated at 94 points and have the capacity to produce over 700 cases of wine per year. Enjoy the hot days in the infinity pool, entertain around the sleek fire pit or, at the lowest part of the yard by the pool’s 20’ X 50’ waterfall, enjoy a dinner party with the outdoor kitchen equipped with Viking BBQ, fridge and sink. This home is a masterpiece in any city, but at just 7 miles from the Napa airport, it’s an irresistible haven in one of the most sought after areas of Northern California wine country. Truly an entertainer and foodies dream!
