Views and Vines In This Extraordinary Napa Valley Estate, $16MAuthor:Philip Ferrato
Where: 7830 Silverado Trail, Oakville
What: A 6-bed, 7.5-bath, envy-inducing vineyard estate on 60 acres, hanging high above the Napa Valley within the historic Oakville AVA.
Impeccably designed by San Francisco architect John Maniscalco, the property hits all the right notes– views, vines and vegetables, bocce, tennis and a swimming pool, a luxurious guest house, and the main house with an outdoor kitchen. Plus a freestanding wine room. The approach to the house winds through the vineyards and old oaks, opening to a large parking area and entry courtyard.
The main entry (below) looks through the house from the courtyard– the compound is organized on two parallel axis– the courtyard connecting the structures and a long interior hall in the luminous main house.
The opposite side of the courtyard holds the 2000-bottle wine cave. The vineyards are planted with Cabernet– the grape that made the Oakville AVA world famous.
Below, breathtaking views over the Napa Valley.
