There are houses, and then there are homes; places where design and nature converge to create that magical sense of place. You can't pinpoint why, but you know, when you stand in these places, that somehow the whole is much more than the sum of the parts; places that delight the senses, trigger your happiest memories & ignite the poetic soul. This Napa inspired Italianate custom villa nestled among magnificent oak trees and avocado groves is such a place. It sits on a shady creek/ravine by a jasmine covered wooden bridge surrounded by blackberry vines. Dreams are born in settings such as this! Gaze up the hills surrounding the villa to 14.5 acres of lush green healthy avocado groves which can be acquired with the 2.5 acre estate. Guests curve up an oak covered drive to a spacious green front lawn area perfect for a future vineyard. Romeo and Juliet balconies emanating from the home's guest casita overlook this front area. A deep teal vanishing edge pool surrounded by arbor covered patios lends curb appeal as well as perfect entertainment spaces by day or night. Views of the surrounding mountains, evergreens & groves are visible from all outdoor entertainment areas, & when the moon rises in the deep blue velvet sky and hangs over these mountains, the scene is surreal. The Master Bedroom's french doors lead to a stunning, grassy relaxation area under majestic oaks. From there, meander along blackberry covered trails down to the creek and honeysuckle covered bridge. Surrounding the creek are magnificent heat split boulders lending natural beauty to the landscape. Many of the property's rocks were heat split to create the custom rock work on the interior as well.
