Villa Hestia, Napa Valley, California

Villa Hestia

Listed at $9,300,000
MLS #21616942

Resting in a sea of vineyards and caressed by mature oaks, this world-class Napa Valley estate, “Villa Hestia,” has as its centerpiece a magnificent approximately 10,000 sq. ft. Tuscan-inspired villa. At once dramatic and tranquil, rustic yet sophisticated, and expansive yet embracing, the home, its surrounding grounds and amenities are nothing short of spectacular. Here on this gated and fully fenced nearly 13-acre California Wine Country estate, classic architecture, the finest materials, masterful craftsmanship, and inspired interior and landscape design come together. The result is as close to perfection as any discerning property owner could imagine.

The Alluring Patina of Age

“Villa Hestia” is constructed using techniques and materials borrowed from the past, skillfully adapted to the present, and promising to remain classic long into the future. The walls, for example, are of rammed earth, today termed “PISE,” or “pneumatically impacted stabilized earth.” Its value and effects include strength, endurance, insulating ability, and a rugged, weathered, Old World appearance. Massive, rough-hewn Douglas fir beams re-purposed from a 19th century warehouse in Portland, Oregon are used throughout the structures. Aged industrial-grade steel forms the staircase, and roofs are of corrugated copper.

A Design for Active Living

This is an estate designed for la gioia della vita, the celebration of life, and in the Napa Valley that includes the enjoyment of an indoor-outdoor lifestyle. Expansive pergolas, accessed via multiple French doors from many rooms,shade and overlook spacious terraces surrounding a nearly Olympic-length pool and adjacent hot tub. There’s a professional-quality tennis court, and an open-air kitchen and dining pavilion standing ready for al fresco repasts; no doubt making use of garden-to-table herbs and vegetables from the raised beds nearby. While family, guests and pets are comfortably accommodated in the 5 bedrooms and four and one-half baths of the main residence, there is also a beautiful and spacious guest house, and “Casa del Cane,” a dual kennel luxury dog house complete with grooming amenities.

Privacy with Accessibility

Located just minutes from downtown Napa, a mere two miles from the renowned Silverado Resort and Spa, and little more than an hour’s drive north of San Francisco, “Villa Hestia” provides opportunity as a permanent residence or as the ultimate home away from home.
