Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

This delightful 120-year-old farmhouse, overlooking a vineyard, sits on two acres. Recently renovated, the house is 3,000 square feet and can comfortably sleep 6-8 people in three spacious bedrooms. Two bedrooms are furnished with queen beds and the third with a king and a view of the vineyards. The remodeled upstairs bathroom is charming with a claw foot tub and pedestal sink.

The downstairs has a large front room, a dining room and a separate parlor that is great for gathering around the fireplace with family and friends. There is a large wrap around porch that has two twin beds, which also have a view of the vineyards. The porch is also a wonderful place to dine on warm summer evenings.

The award winning kitchen (Northern CA Kitchen Design Competition) has a farm table and large sliding doors that open onto a wisteria covered deck and seating area - the perfect place for your morning cup of coffee or evening glass of wine. The adjacent dining room provides an elegant extension of the kitchen and includes another cozy fireplace. A second attractively updated bathroom along with a laundry/mud room is located just off the kitchen.

About owner

I grew up in the San Francisco Bay area, but now live in Napa Valley and have for thirty-four years. As a child I spent many weekends visiting our family home in St. Helena.

owner purchased this farmhouse in 1935

Why owner chose Saint Helena

This house has been in our family for over eighty years. The house was built in the 1880's and my great-uncle purchased it in 1935 from a historical Napa Valley wine family. People have always loved gathering at the St. Helena house and we want that to continue for generations to come.

What makes this farmhouse unique

The wrap around porch has been the setting for many wonderful dinners over the years. Sitting on the porch eating and drinking wine, while at the same time looking over the vineyards along with the views of the eastern mountains - Priceless!

My experience at the house was spectacular. It is quite the special place. You feel right at home. It has everything you could ever want in your stay. Never would stay anywhere else when I come back to Napa.

Very special place for a very special weekend.

  • 5 of 5

Booked this lovely heritage home to celebrate a 60th birthday with some close friends. Jim was a fantastic host. A secret angel providing everything we could have asked for for our stay, including complete privacy. The home is spacious, recently updated, and super comfortable. We enjoyed our breakfasts while gazing over the vineyards. The location is fantastic. We walked several times into St. Helena for a meal, or to visit the local bakery. And the fully equipped kitchen/butler's pantry and formal dining room was perfect for the personal chef's dinner we had arranged. Thank you Jim. It was a wonderful stay!

Charming, Memorable, and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had an incredible 4-night stay at the St. Helena House last week. Jim's home is next to the beautiful Beringer vineyard, and we enjoyed drinking a bottle of wine in the backyard as we watched the sun set each day. This is a great location for walking to downtown St. Helena, which takes 10-15 minutes. Every morning we also enjoyed walking around the surrounding area, which offered beautiful views of the valley and steeper hills that led to neighboring vineyards. The 6 of us were very comfortable in the house, and Jim was especially helpful with suggestions for what to do and where to eat in the area. Jim was very responsive and coordinating our stay at the St. Helena house was easy. We would stay here again in a heartbeat! Thanks again for everything, Jim!
