Location: Napa, California
Price: $35 million
It’s stylish Napa home designed by the well-regarded architectural firm Cutler Anderson blends in-town privacy, modern architecture and a 22.58-acre vineyard known for its top-shelf Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot grapes.
It’s the kind of California wine country blend both out of towners and foreign buyers are often looking for when house hunting, said listing agent Cyd Greer, of the St. Helena office of Coldwell Banker Brokers of the Valley.
“These are people who are looking for a very high-end architecturally significant home with a lot of privacy along with wanting a high-end profitable winery,” she said. “This property has all three.”
The home on North Third Avenue, which is known as the Meteor Vineyard Estate, is within the original 1800s settlement of Napa’s founder, Nathan Coombs, Ms. Greer said.

“This is the vineyards,” she said. “This is the top vineyard in the Coombsville AVA region. It has been called the Grand Cru of the Coombsville region.”
She declined to release any number but said that the vineyard was “a standout in terms of profitability.”
Architectural and design features include wood paneling and floors, cedar shingles, large expanses of wood-framed floor-to-ceiling windows to take in the mountain and vineyard views—and flood the rooms with natural light. There are also ceiling heights up to nearly 40 feet, programmable shades, Douglas fir beams, skylights and butterfly-shaped metal roofs that direct rainwater into two-story waterfalls above the koi pond.
The dramatic two-story foyer opens to formal living and dining rooms with a two-sided gas fireplace and French doors to the grounds and dining terrace. An oversized office features an island for media storage, built-in cabinetry and extensive countertops.
The eat-in kitchen offers GeoCrete countertops with decorative inlays, edge-grain carbonized bamboo cabinets and paneling, a dumbwaiter, a butler’s pantry and appliances from Sub-Zero, Gaggenau and Miele.
Upstairs, the primary bedroom suite features built-in beech cabinetry, a fireplace, a sitting room, an office, a safe room, two balconies and a bathroom with a soaking tub. In addition, the second-floor east wing features two guest bedroom suites, each with a private balcony, and a playroom with additional sleeping space.
The lower level includes a nine-person theater, a 1,250-bottle wine room and a tasting room with a fireplace. The west wing of the home includes a gym and yoga studio and a lower-level guest or au pair apartment.
The three-bedroom guesthouse has a deck overlooking a heated plunge pool and the property’s vineyard, and is connected to the main house from the west wing by a 130-foot cedar boardwalk.
The property also has a grove of valley oaks with a 500-year-old tree, Ms Greer said. “The valley oaks have a beautiful spreading habit. They are very iconic in Napa.”

“You’re very close to the city of Napa,” she said. “It’s a beautiful and private pastoral setting, yet you’re five to seven minutes from downtown Napa. The convenience and privacy go hand in hand.”
