In the north of California there is a well visited region we all associate with beauty, style, exclusivity, and of course wine. My name is Mark Thomas and in am in the magnificent Napa valley at a residence which is as much a private luxury resort as it is an intimate home. Nestled upon its own hilltop, this spectacular California contemporary commands incredible panoramic birds eye views over rolling hills and vineyards. From here it is clear to see why so many flock to the region to experience the temperate climate, superb scenery and sample the finest wine the country produces.
From the security gate the driveway winds majestically up the hillside past the sculpture of the divining rods which is a homage to the gentleman who discovered the spring fed well and the pretty waterfall before reaching the large circular driveway. Here you are not only greeted with the expanse of the main residence but also seperate guest houses as this estate was designed to be as much a place to share the beauty of the location as a private home. From the moment you enter the home and are welcomed with the sweeping staircases.
It is clear to see why this newly constructed home took over 5 years to complete. The wonderful flow of this open plan living room dining room is enhanced by the stylish aesthetic executed which was by a recognized team of professionals in the design world. How this helps you is that everything you see here stays exactly where it is pristine and perfect. With fireplaces at each end of the room and superbly decorated with quality furniture and accessories expertly chosen and placed, this room and indeed the whole home is exactly how you want it.
