SF Gate covers Hillary Ryan’s Modern farmhouse in Napa

Modern farmhouse in Napa boasts mountain views

Four years ago work completed on a luxurious farmhouse minutes from downtown Napa. Now the estate with mountain views, sumptuous finishes and enticing outdoor entertainment areas can be had for $7.95 million.

“They designed the home as a modern farmhouse to illustrate what Napa offers,” said Hillary Ryan of Pacific Union Real Estate, referring to the couple who built 4128 E. 3rd St. “It’s about openness and entertainment elements, but also privacy and solitude.”

Set on nearly four acres of picturesque Wine Country landscape, the estate includes a two-bedroom guest house and a rustic two-story barn. The barn is currently used for entertaining, though the future owner could convert it to a horse barn or space for vehicle storage.

The main home boasts an open floor plan with dual-hung windows, recessed LED lights and tech-savvy inclusions like a Nest thermostat and Sonos sound system. Porcelain tile lines the interior, and a gas fireplace with electric starter warms the great room.

A 48-inch ILVE Italian range anchors an open kitchen finished with Silestone quartz counters and Kitchen-Aid appliances. French doors off the kitchen open to a covered patio set beside the sparkling, saltwater pool and spa stretching behind the home.

Across the water rests the two-bedroom guest house, a luxurious retreat for visiting friends and relatives. Like the main residence, the guest house offers an open floor plan, recessed LED lights and an outdoor entertainment area with a gas fire pit.

The main home culminates with an indulgent owner’s suite that includes a fireplace, walk-in closets and French doors leading outside. A Jacuzzi tub and marble-topped dual vanity accessorize the suite’s spa bathroom that’s highlighted by a 12-foot by 24-foot limestone shower.
