Verona - Napa County

  
 

Sitting on a natural hilltop overlooking the famed Napa Valley and world reknown vineyards, dreams of Italy come to life as you approach Verona, a dramatic villa modeled after the famed homes in Tuscany and designed to reflect the wine country lifestyle in design and décor. Located behind gates at the end of a rising road right off Napa’s Silverado Trail, the rambling 5 bedroom home welcomes you with a courtyard lined classic Olive and Cyprus trees, and shares the entrance with the by appointment only Phifer Pavitt (Date Night) private tasting room.

Enter the villa through 100 year old polished wooden doors that once graced the famous Diamond Mountain winery and behold a grand room with high beamed ceilings, acid-etched concrete floors (with radiant heating), golden toned walls and old world wrought iron ‘candled’ chandeliers. At one end is the living room with oversized seating surrounding a hand-carved stone mantel and fireplace. To the right is a formal dining room with a wooden plank table and high back leather studded chairs sure to make any mal a royal occasion. In the center of the room is a digital baby grand piano sure to add a musical note to quiet family evenings or entertainment for parties and events. The final aspect to this grand room is the enormous chef’s kitchen -- carved wooden cabinetry hold every cooking and dining accessory you could imagine. The “wine” bar features a refrigerator plus a large serving and tasting area; professional stove and ranges; warming ovens surrounding a large marble topped carved island with wooden stools sure to be the heart of the home. Breakfast and casual meals can be served on the wooden farm table which overlooks the property. A full size ‘cook’s brick fireplace adorns one wall while giant cutlery décor lead to large butler’s pantry and prep area ideal for large dinners and parties.

The home – on 24 naturally landscaped acres – winding paths that flow down the hillside; terraced gardens abound with flowering shrubs, native plants and exotic grasses set amid tall mature trees; culinary gardens and fruit orchards that offer a rich harvest for every season – all organically grown.

Multiple French doors along the back lead to a covered patio extending the length of the house that overlooks the pool deck below with views of neighboring vineyards (Silver Oak, Twomey, Cunard, Close Pegase et al), the valley floor and mountains in the distance. The perfect spot for early morning coffee or pre-dinner sunset cocktails. As you walk down the winding steps to the pool, you’ll pass the bocce court sure to be a gathering place. The large pool and deck overlooking the valley is bucolic surrounded by trees and gardens. Comfortable seating, built-in BBQ and outdoor kitchen, plus pool lanterns and a wood-burning heater means you’ll enjoy hours of relaxing, dining, and entertaining all day and late into the night.

Back in the house, walk up the steps at the end of the living room to discover the game and media room. The perfect place to enjoy your favorite film (there’s an extensive DVD collection) or play one of the many board games. Ideal family fun at the end of the day.

Further down the hallway are two gust bedrooms. The first has a double bed and looks out over the pool. The second offers twin beds and is ideal for children with its sports memorabilia décor. They share a bathroom.

The third level features the Master Suite with a dramatic carved wooden bed, oriental rug, and relaxing settee. The master bath has a large Jacuzzi tub, glass shower, dramatic vanity with aged cooper sinks and faucets plus a ladies dressing table. Off the Suite is a private terrace overlooking the property where you’re sure to enjoy brandy under the stars.

Steps to the right of the living room fireplace lead to the wine cellar and tasting room where you’ll surely want to bring some of the day’s purchases from local vineyards for sampling.

The property also includes a separate two story guest house surrounded by its own garden and fountains. Upstairs is one bedroom with a small terrace overlooking the garden; a living room with additional sleeping quarters plus a mini-Kitchen. Don’t miss the family friendly Treehouse fort hidden just behind the guesthouse and vegetable gardens.

Verona is truly a wine country paradise where family and friends can enjoy the natural beauty of the land in a home built as a homage to the Italian heritage and countryside.
