Built in 1995, the “Hill House” at 3000 Palisades Road has a beautifully fluid, geometric and abstract Frank Lloyd Wright-like design inspired by the nature that surrounds it--majestic yet intimate and organic. Perfectly placed atop its own hill just above the valley floor with 65 acres of its own private trails, this 4494 sf, three bedroom (two kings and a queen), four bath, two half-bath, estate property is only five minutes from the tasting room, boutique shops and galleries, restaurants and spas of downtown Calistoga. One bedroom and one bath are set off in a private studio suitable for guests, in-laws or an au pere.
The vineyard and mountain views are breathtaking, the mornings tranquil, the sunset serene. Expansive 220-degree views of vineyards, wineries, the Mayacamas, Mt. St. Helena and Table Rock vary continuously with the movement of the sun, treating residents to spectacular sunsets with colors that vary from vibrant pink to hues of orange and gold.
Features include Canadian red cedar-lined pyramid ceiling, hand-chiseled concrete columns anchored into the mountain, an open-hearth fireplace, Italian tile radiant-heated floors, Mahogany doors, stairs and railings, custom cabinetry and recessed windows that become living pictures of nature. A media room, large office, exercise room, and two-car garage make the home practical for extended stays. New furnishings inside and out are appropriate to its mid-Century modern design. A Sonos sound system streams music to speakers in seven rooms while four Apple TVs will keep guests connected to their favorite media. Gated and fenced, the exterior is surrounded by multiple terraces. Mature olive trees, majestic oaks and flowering manzanita trees give the landscaping a natural character that blends seamlessly with the surrounding woods. The oval pool is unheated.
No events, no pets, no smoking. Use of the Hill House is subject to the terms and conditions of a minimum 31-day rental agreement.
