About Cherry Cotter
We are a family of four residing in San Francisco. We love to go to St. Helena after a hectic week in the City; it provides the perfect respite from the San Francisco fog in the summer.
Cherry Cotter purchased this house in 1992
Why Cherry Cotter chose St Helena
It reminded us of the French wine producing regions and it was a lot closer!
What makes this house unique
Complete rest! The property's privacy, large outdoor areas, pool and eating areas offer such a beautiful setting to relax. It is also very convenient to wine tasting, shopping, and outdoor activities if desired.
Serene Home! The design of the home conforms to the outdoors perfectly. When inside, it still feels like you are outside because of the windows on all sides. Every room has beautiful views. When the sun sets, the fire pit outside is extremely cozy, and if you just want to burrow inside, the blinds throughout can be drawn for a very private night time feeling.
Perfect Location! Not too close to the hustle and bustle of downtown St. Helena, but not too far either. I like it being 10 minutes from Calistoga also since that is a very different town from St. Helena; a little more down to earth.
