Napa Estate California

13,000 Square Feet

Nestled along the crest of a 130-acre mountain ridge in the Napa Valley, sits an elegant, but casual, “camp-chic” estate. The expansive property contrasts layered modernity with a Spartan placidity—intelligently connecting the dwelling’s arrestingly detailed interiors with the lowland’s rugged surroundings.

An incredibly dynamic procession begins with a double-height great room linked to the covered porch by an expansive retractable glass wall and culminates at the dramatic infinity pool perched upon the mountain edge. Inside the main volume, a generous living and open dining room features an oversized sinuously curved Nakashima wood-plank dining table. Above this tableau, a shimmering chandelier provides a visual anchor and a soft twinkle echoing the starry sky.

The kitchen features a magnificent oversized marble island that provides ample room to prepare large family meals. The rich bespoke oak cabinetry is complimented by a handmade metal and seeded-glass pendant. The custom leather-wrapped breakfast banquette, stone table and vintage brass pendants, combine old and new for a serene congenial ambiance. Nearby, the wine room accommodates a substantial collection—a necessity for the Napa Valley lifestyle.

The private areas of the home include an impressive master suite with a unique carved bed, also by famed woodworker Nakashima, sited on axis to the breathtaking views. A cocktail table of petrified coal with polished top and bright zinc butterfly joints, by artist Jim Zivic, is flanked by rare mid-century walnut chairs. The lavish master bath opens to a private outdoor spa, offering his and her open-air showers and a romantic secret garden— all with infinite views of the peaked mountain tops—a bucolic experience laced with modern luxury.

At a comfortable distance, the two-bedroom guesthouse provides friends and family guests with indulgent privacy. The rustic character echoes the modest terrain, while referencing the chic modern vernacular of the main house.
