VILLA CELESTE

celestial views from a substantial ridge-top estate
 
 

Ascend the rural, scenic Soda Canyon Road, pass through a gated entry, and drive on a winding, shared private road to arrive at Villa Celeste, a rarified and substantial ridge-top estate. Stroll the length of the grounds, from the southern end of the house to the trellised bower north of the pool, and marvel at the unsurpassed, celestial views of Napa Valley, and -- well beyond -- of the distant landmarks of San Francisco. The estate’s main structures amply ground its intoxicating panoramic vistas. The villa is sited on 67 acres and includes a two story, 5900 square feet main home, a large pool house, a 60’ pool with spa, and a four-car garage. Crafted in a timeless Mediterranean style, the property is rich in amenities and offers an abundance of grand spaces. A sampling of details conveys the high caliber of this estate: The main house features a spacious master suite plus three en suite bedrooms; a paneled mahogany library with 24’ ceiling, custom bookcases, and fireplace; a large, elegant living room with fireplace and a dining room with views of the valley; an alcove housing a full bar; a spacious chef’s kitchen with a large walk-in, temperature controlled wine cellar; and an airy family room with a soaring ceiling, a set of double French doors, and a fireplace.  The breakfast nook and family room give easy access to the dining terrace, outdoor kitchen, and pool.  The long black-bottom pool is served by a tasteful pool house which holds an en suite theater/media room with fireplace and hidden bed, and a separate indoor/outdoor full bar. The estate is blessed with abundant water that serves the lawns, gardens and trellised spaces – and could also supply the vineyard-plantable acreage. At night, with the valley below and the heavens surrounding you, you’ll be able to personally thank each of your many lucky stars.
