The secluded and serene 8.67-acre wooded estate, Vista Norte, nestled in the Mayacamas Mountain Range West of Oakville, is the product of an extensive restoration and landscape development project by a retired university engineering professor and nature lover, as his private tribute to John Muir. Offering complete privacy, the property is surrounded by planted terraced meadows and, beyond those, majestic redwoods and firs, and distant unspoiled mountains, and is protected by a gated entrance featuring a stone wall and pillars and immense century-old Teakwood wagon wheels. A long and winding paved driveway through the picturesque woods accentuates the privacy. The main house and the detached-but-nearby guest house are a blend of Craftsman and Mountain-Lodge styles. Features include a large farmhouse style kitchen and spacious great room containing two original stone fireplaces, refinished original wood floors and knotty pine walls & ceilings, and another stone fireplace in the approx. 1158 sq ft separate guest cottage and arts/crafts studio. Natural light abounds from numerous windows, glass doors & skylights throughout the home, guest house, and work spaces. The in-ground infinity pool and patio are surrounded with a stone wall perimeter, complimenting the stone wall landscaping. There is approx. 745 sq ft of patio-level veranda with massive Redwood pillars, including about 360 sq ft of covered outdoor dining area, for a grand total of about 4187 sq ft of indoor and covered outdoor living area. The stone wine cellar and an adjacent stone garage are both dug into the hillside, and this garage can be fitted to serve as a second wine cellar. There are two additional 2-car garages/workshops/arts/crafts spaces, several small outbuildings (approx. 1527 sq ft in total) with Redwood-log walls or Redwood board & batten siding, a quaint greenhouse surrounded by raised vegetable garden boxes and a half-mile of nature trails throughout the property. Located just 15 minutes from the Napa Valley floor, this property is waiting for your personal touches. Much more detail & videos available.
