This immaculate St. Helena estate is the face of architecture firm Backen, Gillam & Kroeger‘s book From the Land which features farmhouses in the Napa Valley, hilltop homes, seaside retreats and lakeside hideaways.
On the market for $18,900,000 USD, the elegantly simple, rustic home is now looking for a buyer to live out its story firsthand.
A Home Fit for the Wine-Country Enthusiast
Situated on Pritchard Hill, 275 Long Ranch Road is a rare property, ideal for connoisseurs of the wine-country lifestyle. The property’s panoramic hillside views are complemented by an architectural design that melts into the serene surroundings. This seamless flow comes from the collaboration of top talent, inclusive of architect Howard Backen, designer Nicole Hollis and landscape architect Mark W. Bower. Together, they brought this 7,400-square-foot modern farmhouse to life.
Both magical and sensible, the main house features four bedrooms, three bathrooms and two half bathrooms. Oversized pocket doors blur the lines between indoors and out—combining the best of both atmospheres into one palatial living experience. The spacious primary room includes an en suite shower and bath, home gym and study.
Perfect as a rejuvenating private retreat or backdrop for a lively gathering, the grounds can accommodate guests in either of the two guesthouses, each over 1,100 square feet. The first guest home features a full kitchen, great room, bedroom and full bathroom, and the second is comprised of two en suites.
The home’s grounds are sprawling and luxurious. Outside, the landscaping blends with courtyards, terraces, outdoor fireplaces and an in-ground pool that overlooks the glorious and breathtaking valley below.
Part of the home’s enchanting candor is the seamless integration of natural elements within the interior of the home. Handsome, rustic wood beams accentuate the soaring ceilings, while walls of glass frame the picturesque landscape. Rich, illustrious materials and finishes cover every square inch of the home—hues of burnt orange and red are offset by soft shades of green and blue, complementing the built-in wood shelves and cabinets found throughout the home.
