Perfectly sited on 7.31 acres (tax records) in the desirable Carneros AVA, this gated estate is beautifully designed for a luxurious but casual wine country lifestyle. Consisting of a magnificent 4,600 sq. ft. (tax records) home, spacious guesthouse above the 3-car garage, saltwater pool, warehouse, reservoir and approximately 4.5 acres of premium Pinot Noir grapes, this property tempts the imagination with possibilities. Your own boutique winery, perhaps. Significant income potential. The main house is exquisite and offers the perfect canvas for imagining your dreams. As you step into the entry you will experience a hint of what this home has to offer, accentuated by volume and light. To the right you will find the formal living and dining rooms, which take advantage of views over the vineyard to the hills beyond. To the left of the entry is a spacious room, currently used as a rec room, which lends itself to many purposes — den/study, library, office — to name a few. Back through the entry turn right and enter the “great room” area. The custom professional “chef’s” kitchen features commercial grade appliances and exquisite finishes such as: •African granite countertops •Custom stainless steel countertops •6-burner plus griddle Wolf gas range •Sub Zero refrigerator and freezer •Sub Zero wine cooler •Pot filler faucet •Warming drawer •Combination oven/microwave •Dishwasher •Miele deep fryer The center island, adjacent to the open family room, provides the perfect space for friends and family to gather to cook and relax while sipping a glass of fine wine. The family room features a custom fireplace with French limestone surround. There is an office space off the kitchen and another room that is perfect for a playroom or storage. The left wing of the house is highlighted by a gorgeous master suite, with glass doors leading to the lawn and pool. The finely appointed master bath will make you feel as if you are a permanent resident at a luxurious spa and features a whirlpool tub, sauna, Italian imported fixtures and custom cabinetry. The bathroom floors are heated. There is an alcove off the master bedroom perfect for an office or sitting room. Two additional bedrooms with en suite baths, powder room and entertainment room complete this wing. Other highlights of the home include: •French limestone floors in the main living areas •Bamboo flooring in the secondary bedrooms •Imported Italian door handles •Imported Italian faucets •Salt water pool — heated — electric pool cover •”Gopher proof” lawns to front and side •Concrete raised foundation with crawlspace •Three zone heating and air conditioning with electronic filters •Radiant floor heating in bathrooms •UV filter windows •Sound proofed media room •Mud room and second powder room •All decks are Italian ceramic tile •Entire property is deer fenced •Well •Reservoir There is a two-bedroom guest apartment over the three-car garage with a full kitchen and bath. It has its own private deck overlooking the vines. The 4.5 acres of vineyard are a focal point of the property and are planted with premium Pinot Grapes — Pinot Noir 777 clone Entav 1103P. Entire vineyard was completely renewed in 2011. All work done by Carneros Vineyard Management, who also manages the vineyard. There is a yearly contract with Gundlach Bundschu who purchases the grapes. The previous owner of the land worked for over ten years in constructing the warehouse (Approximately 7,500 sq. ft. per the owner) and surrounding infrastructure. His vision was to build a working winery. It would be extremely difficult, if not impossible, to get approval to build this building and reservoir today. There is significant income potential here. Some of the features of the warehouse are as follows: •Concrete block construction with concrete roof tile •Concrete floors and apron parking pad •Commercial grade roller doors (some electronically operated) •Single-phase and three-phase power throughout
