The oldest house in north Napa, built for a well-known Western mountain man, has been completely restored and is now for sale.

The price: $1.85 million.

Known as the James Clyman house, it’s located at 2243 Redwood Road.

Listing agent Tim Hayden of Compass real estate described the property as a “beautifully renovated,” farmhouse that includes four bedrooms, plus a two-bedroom guest house and pool. It’s almost 3,000 square feet inside.

Steven Hasty and Johanna Hasty of Noble House Construction & Development bought the home in March 2020 for $535,000, according to property records. The seller at the time was the Rau Trust.

This renovation “is a great thing for the community,” said Napa preservationist and historian Kara Brunzell. “I’m thrilled that this one has been spared,” from further deterioration.

“I’m glad Steve has done this,” said Napa preservationist and historian Rebecca Yerger. “I think it’s wonderful. It’s past due to receive the care that it needed.”
