Mediterranean Feng Shui Masterpiece Overlooking the Heart of Napa Valley
In the heart of historic Napa Valley, minutes from downtown St. Helena and just 65 miles north of the Golden Gate Bridge, sits one of Napa Valley’s finest private estates, known as “Villa del Cervo”, named for the Black Tailed deer native to the area and for the Chinese symbol of good luck, success and longevity.
Located up a private gated road, this splendid and level knoll-top estate, situated on approximately 22 acres, offers panoramic views of the valley and hillside vineyards.
As you meander up the paved driveway to Villa del Cervo, past a manicured line of fruit-bearing olive trees, Valley Oaks, Redwoods and Manzanitas, you arrive at a grand courtyard with a majestic stone wall of cascading water flowing towards the home’s front entry, another symbol of good luck and honoring the ancient principles of Feng Shui. A four car attached garage completes the home’s gracious entrance.
As you enter through the Honduran Mahogany entry doors of the 4 bedroom, 4 1/2 bath, main house designed by the acclaimed architectural firm of Walker & Moody, a sense of sophisticated elegance and uncompromised detail awaits you. The hand-honed travertine marble floors throughout the grand entry and up the graceful curved stairway to the upper-level, awaken your senses. Or, should you need assistance with your luggage, you might choose to take the elevator.
The grand formal entry opens to a lounge area and light filled kitchen. The chef’s kitchen is complete with 48” eight burner Wolf cooktop, two 36” Sub-Zero refrigerators and double Thermador wall ovens. The imported Calacatta Gold marble center island and Caesarstone counters are the perfect complement to the rich hardwood floors and custom painted cabinetry. Adjoining the kitchen is an office opening to the grounds.
Adjacent to the kitchen are the dining room and living room which both open to the spectacular outdoor gardens, pool and entertainment areas. The dining room features a Fleetwood vanishing wall that creates a seamless connection to the outdoor areas. A large stone gas fireplace and built-in buffet flank the 16+ person dining table and spectacular Italian Murano chandelier.
Adjacent to the dining room is a grand and elegant living room with 15-foot ceilings, massive stone wood-burning fireplace and lovely views to the pool, spa and garden through the four sets of metal-framed glass French doors. Like the living room, the dining room and kitchen boast 2-inch hand-hewn hickory plank floors.
Just off the living room is an ultra-custom 1400 bottle temperature and humidity controlled wine room with separate formal bar and an inviting lounge area. French doors open to a private outdoor patio.
On the opposite side of the main floor down a hallway past the kitchen is a walk-in pantry with back-up freezer, second office, formal powder room, and theater-quality media room with surround sound.
The large master suite is the centerpiece of the second level and a world unto itself. It features a stunning stone gas fireplace and 400+- sq. ft. outdoor patio with sweeping views overlooking the pool and gardens and the lush green hills to the west. A beautiful hand-carved door opens off the master to a private office. The upstairs elevator entrance is conveniently located just off the master bedroom/office entry.
The large luxurious master bathroom was thoughtfully designed to include two large separate closets, radiant-heated Calacatta Gold marble floors, a hydro-massage tub for two, double sinks with Caesarstone countertops and two separate water closets.
There are three additional bedrooms all with en-suite bathrooms, closets and custom built cabinetry, including a second master suite with French doors out to a large balcony and full bath with two sinks, separate shower and hydro-massage tub for two.
The fifth bedroom is being utilized as a gym and includes a steam room and shower.
Other features include a pool pavilion and architectural plans for a two bedroom, two bath guest house. The sellers are currently working with the county to meet permitting requirements.
