Napa Valley Straw Bale House
Positioned near the center of a level 1.9 acre lot, affording privacy & openness is this cozy Mediterranean styled home with views of Mt. St. Helena.. Inspired by a family trip to the countryside outside Venice Italy the property offers a lifestyle that is both comfortable & relaxed. Close to the town of Calistoga & minutes to restaurants, recreation and wilderness. Plenty of room to garden, add a pool or a tennis court. The home faces east to take maximum advantage of early morning light. The ancient Oak tree in the back yard shades the home & back patio from late afternoon sun. Many doors open to the outside, allowing abundant flows of fresh air. Extra thick walls filled with straw bales & steel frame construction provide the home built in 2003 with a high insulation value & an ultra-quiet interior. The rooms are generous in size and the atmosphere is casual. The modern kitchen beckons both the serious chef and the occasional cook. Also included is a barn-garage with upstairs.
