Located within the distinguished Howell Mountain wine growing appellation and bordering on Beringer Bancroft vineyards, this California contemporary residence revels in jaw-dropping views of the expansive valley floor, the spectacular Mayacamas Mountains, and on a clear day, a glimpse of Mount Diablo in the distance. From its tranquil perch atop this ancient volcanic plateau, one cannot help but be moved at once by the magnificence of the vistas and the sheer calmness of the setting. The arrival experience is pleasurable, traveling along a charming country road past a rich tapestry of vineyards, stands of tall pine and madrone, and the historic stone La Jota Winery, with little hint of the dramatic destination that awaits.
The handsome 2 bedroom home and 1 bedroom guest house rest comfortably in their natural setting, providing relaxed indoor/outdoor living in an informal yet sophisticated atmosphere. The residence enjoys clean contemporary elements: integral color hydronically heated concrete floors, hand finished integral color plaster walls, Blomberg exterior doors and windows, Brazilian hardwood interior doors and a professionally designed lighting system built around the Lutron HomeWorks platform. The main home floor plan includes a spacious great room with French doors leading to the main view terrace; family/media room with surround sound and adjoining courtyard; kitchen with concrete counters, butcher block island, Subzero refrigerator, Viking range, informal dining area and barbecue terrace; master suite with sleeping porch; tower library; laundry room; and temperature controlled wine cellar. The 687 +/- sq ft guest house features a one bedroom suite plus a spacious living/office area, patio, carport and easy outdoor access to a spacious exercise room.
