Sublime Retreat on The Silverado Trail, $7.95MAuthor:Philip Ferrato
Where: 3800 Silverado Trail North, St. Helena
What: A composition of weathered wood and stucco– balanced on native boulders with a highly finished steel structure– this beautifully finished retreat designed by San Francisco’s Pfau Long Architecture is built for both solitude and entertaining. Notably, the sophisticated, rough-hewn landscaping is collection of linked spaces throughout the property.
Inside, the main entertaining space opens to the outdoors with sliding glass panels.
Above the house, the compound includes an outdoor kitchen in a grove of olive trees (below) close to the pool. Further along is an outdoor shower and spa.
Back inside, the master suite is a retreat-within-a-retreat.
What We Love: Only 2 bedrooms, but 4.5 baths. No lawn, but there’s a petanque terrain.
