Divine Napa Valley Compound, $15.5Author:Philip Ferrato
It’s everything you could ask for: A grand and airy main house built for entertaining, a trio of luxurious master suites plus a guest cottage, a pool and outdoor entertaining areas, all on a 2-acre lot on the Valley floor with a .25-acre vineyard planted in Cabernet Sauvignon, plus a 30-tree olive orchard and raised vegetable beds. And ready to move into with the proverbial toothbrush.
Casual even though it’s formally laid out and axial in plan, the house embodies a specific kind of Wine Country casual grandeur, with framed views, 19-foot ceilings and multiple entertaining spaces.
Between the formal dining area and the kitchen, there’s a butler’s pantry, a climate-controlled wine cellar, and a bar. Beyond the kitchen, a casual dining and seating area leading to the pergola and outdoor kitchen.
The Team: A multi-year, turnkey project designed by Willrich Architecture and Agins Interiors for MJC Development in collaboration with Westwind Construction Management, plus Rhyne Landscape Design.
Directly above the kitchen, a family/media room looks out over the property.
