Property Porn: A Modern Farmhouse in St. Helena for $3.5M

By

If you ever dreamed of waving goodbye to the city in exchange for the quiet farm life up north, this St. Helena home might be the ticket. It has all the bucolic vibes but with polished amenities and no pesky farm animals.


An all new construction, this four-bedroom home is fashioned after the iconic farmhouse (it has a classic  board and batten exterior and a corrugated metal roof) but is designed for modern life. 

Olive trees and rose bushes surround the home and its ample spaces for outdoor entertaining, including a pool, patio and backyard where an outdoor kitchen is primed for Wine Country summer parties.

Inside, meanwhile, it's all R&R. In the master suite, vaulted ceilings lend the feeling of country charm; deep pile carpet feels plush between your toes; the bathroom has a luxurious freestanding tub, dual-sink vanity, and walk-in shower; and French doors open onto the pool.

For the chef of the house, the contemporary kitchen has all new stainless steel appliances, a built-in refrigerator, and a large custom island just waiting to be piled high with snacks. Sounds just perfect for settling down and making babies, no?

If you decide to go that route, call mom and dad and ask them to come and stay for a bit. The one-bedroom guesthouse has ts own bathroom and plenty of space (536 sq. ft.). It's nicer than most San Francisco million-dollar homes.
