How many times have you driven past the rolling hills of Napa Valley, hand catching the wind out the car window, and dreamed of ditching the city for a more glorious, Wine Country life?
If you're ready to jump ship (or just in the mood for some masochistic fantasy-stoking), get a gander at this vineyard estate on the eastern valley floor in Yountville, where a meandering single-story home is just waiting for you to move in and invite everyone you know for a grand pool party with all the wine.
Stone walls flank the gate that opens onto the long driveway leading up to front double doors. Open them up, and you'll find a quintessentially Napa-style space, with organic elements and arched wood ceilings.
The open kitchen has stout beams and double islands; there is an ample dining area and a separate breakfast nook; and the living room allows for more laid-back gatherings with an arched window framing sunset views of the vineyard.
A sprawling master bedroom, too, offers panoramas of grapes in the sun, as well as access to the back patio. Curved windows and high ceilings continue into the bathroom with standalone marble soaking tub, large shower, and dual sink vanity.
In addition to three other bedrooms, a new bonus room allows for another space to host guests or even become an exercise or game room. Outside, another dining area with fireplace awaits, as well as a a trellised patio lounge, raised garden beds, fruit trees, and of course the lap pool to swim or soak with a glass of wine.
