Property Description:

This iconic property, dating back to 1890, was once the Esmeralda Winery, which made wine for San Francisco’s Palace Hotel. Under the stewardship of its current owner and through the artistry of Fisher Weisman of San Francisco, the property has undergone an extraordinary transformation, incorporating exquisite custom materials and architectural elements to create a residential estate of remarkable quality and character. The property, sited on a half acre parcel located on St. Helena’s west side, is centered around a 3,961 +/- sq ft main residence, featuring beautiful interior stone and Venetian plaster walls, hand finished oak floors, black walnut cabinetry, doors and woodwork, an AMX sound system, and LED lighting with Lutron Grafik Eye control system.

This historic home communicates warmth and sophistication throughout the space, from the living room with impressive vaulted ceilings and grand fireplace, to the formal dining room with coffered ceiling, chef’s kitchen, intimate library, and luxurious second floor master suite. The property boasts a spacious pool house with wine cellar, Rumford style fireplace, full bath, and wall of French doors that provide access to a distinctive European style pool with raised stone walls.
