PRESERVATION HOUSE: 3 BDRM & ACREAGE, SILVERADO TRL, ST. HELENA

St Helena House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Acreage, Great Access To Wine Country

3 bedroom / 2 bathroom historic shingle house with antiques. Built in 1928 above scenic Silverado Trail, the historic home offers privacy above Napa River in oak woodlands. 0.9 mile walk/bike down a vinyard-lined road to historic St. Helena, 'Napa Valley's Main Street.'

We named the house 'Preservation House' because our focus has been to restore rather than modernize or remodel, both inside and out. Except for upgrades important for safety, like electrical service, kitchen ventilation, and fire protection, keeping the house's historic and authentic features is our goal. The house is 1,400 square feet and centers around an open livingroom-diningroom space with historic knotty pine walls and ceilings, in the tradition of a 1928 lodge. A large hearth with a woodburning stove adds to the cozy, intimate feeling of the livingroom, and both rooms are furnished with a mix of comfortable contemporary seating and period antiques and artwork. The woodburning stove is NOT operable because of fire restrictions in Napa Valley. The kitchen has a large refrigerator and historic gas stove that works beautifully (no microwave). A covered porch off the kitchen is a great place to enjoy your morning coffee and as a place to unwind in the evening. In the vernacular Italian building tradition, the house's downstairs bathroom is accessible through the covered outdoor porch rather than through an interior entrance. According to a historian of vernacular architecture, Arne Alanen, Prof. Emeritus, U. of Wisc., many Italians thought it was unsanitary for a bathroom to open into the first story kitchen and living spaces directly. Both the finished upstairs bathroom and utilitarian downstairs bathroom have a shower and the upstairs bathroom also has a tub. As throughout the house, the bathrooms feature authentic historic elements rather than remodelled features.

The house has three bedrooms with large operable windows, some with screens. There are box fans in each bedroom but no air conditioning. One bedroom has a king-sized, another has a queen-size, and the third bedroom has two twin-size beds. Upstairs there are softwood floors and an exterior entrance from the upstairs landing to the oak woodlands behind the house. Although we try to abate poison oak on the property, it is a native plant. Please be cautious of poison oak on the property.

We have several REVIEWS of our home on the OTHER well known vacation rental site, vacation rental 1223646.

NOTE: Price increase for reservations AFTER OCT 1, 2014. We allow up to 6 guests per night. If this does not accommodate your needs, please contact us.

Edward & Yvonne are the parents of four 'children.' We live between St. Helena and San Francisco. Edward is an architectural historian and we both love historic buildings of all kinds.

Edward Yarbrough purchased this house in 2013

The house has character and is uniquely of its time and place, a true Napa Valley vernacular house. Built in 1928, we are the third owners. The house is set on 4.35 acres on both sides of Silverado Trail and is bounded to the west by the Napa River.

It would be hard to find a property in Napa Valley more centrally located to the very best wineries, historic downtowns (i.e. St. Helena & Calistoga), or more bike-accessible than this property. Silverado Trail is the backbone connecting the finest wineries in the Valley and has continuous bike lanes. The house has the privacy of oak woodlands and vinyards, the Napa River Wildlife Refuge and historic Pratt Ave. Bridge while still being a quick walk, bike, or drive into historic downtown St. Helena - (website hidden)

There are great bike rental options in St. Helena.

Charming Stay

  • 4 of 5
Our group enjoyed our stay at the Preservation house! The house itself had many charming 1920's characteristics - including downstairs bathroom entrance from outside. The bedrooms were large and beds comfortable. The owners were very helpful and responsive during our stay. Our only complaint would be that the house is located very close to the main road so the traffic noise can be loud and consistent, even at night. The beautiful vegetation on the property helps block the view of the road, but not the sound. Overall, we had a great stay and would recommend this house to others.

Fun girls get-away. Fun time spent relaxing and reconnecting with co-workers. The house was warm and comfortable. The driveway was a little tricky to maneuver and the road was loud but it didn't seem to bother us much. Thank you Ed and family for sharing your house with us. God Bless.

Charming St. Helena House

  • 4 of 5
This house is fabulous. We enjoyed it on a nice winter weekend. The kitchen is perfect for light cooking. Owners even provided toast and eggs. Plenty of room in the living room to watch a movie or play games at the table. We also enjoyed the back porch on the outside of the house. You are a very short drive from downtown St. Helen. Would be a great bike ride. The bedrooms are up stairs they are all very comfortable beds and nice linens. We are planning our next trip in the summer!

Owner's Response: Sarah and her friends left the house in tip-top shape and were thoughtful from beginning to end. It was so encouraging to hear her kind remarks about the house during our communications before and during her stay and then again in this review. We really do hope she'll come stay at our home again. Thanks Sarah!

Great location and home

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the home for a girls trip for the weekend, It was in a great location to the main street and to the wineries. The home was spacious and a great deal for the amount of people you can sleep comfortably. We loved the outdoor area and the antique look and feel of the home. If you are a light sleeper it can be a bit loud because of the road but it did not bother us at all!
