About the property

Architect designed home with 3 bdrms and 2 baths + cottage (1 bdrm, 1 bath)

Our modern home is located down a country lane just 4 blocks from Main street. It is Ideal for six guests who will enjoy a bedroom with an adjacent bath on each floor of the main house and the cottage, with its private bath. Eight guests can be accommodated using the 4th bed, located in the loft and sharing the 2nd floor bath. Main house and separate cottage are offered together in the Spring, Summer and Fall. This property is great for guests gathering for weddings, family reunions, special birthdays, as well as business meetings. Three different outdoor areas invite enjoying that great bottle of wine. Indoors gather around the fireplace, grand piano, and dining/conference table. Architectural planning creates spaces to get together as well as peaceful private areas to recharge. It is an easy, safe walk downtown as well as to a small park at the head of our gravel private roadway.

All beds have 100% cotton linens, feather comforters and pillows. The first floor bedroom has an antique, French- sleigh, king bed and adjacent bath with tiled shower. The airy, vaulted-ceiling 2nd floor bedroom has a king bed with deck and bath with tiled shower. Additionally, there is an American 1850's four poster double bed in a curtained loft. The private cottage has a queen bed and compact bath with a tiled shower and is a covered patio away from the main house.

A separate dining room is adjacent to the cook's kitchen, with its Thermadore gas range and Sub Zero refrigerator/freezer. Three uniquely different outdoor areas include a dining area off the kitchen with a Weber Performa charcoal barbecue; a shady spot off the living room with lounge chairs; and a sunny, crushed granite surface patio are with another umbrella/table.

The house features stained concrete floors, galvanized metal finishes, stucco, rustic wood beams, re-purposed barn doors and windows, and antique light fixtures. Furnishings include a beautifully restored bamboo living room set, as well as pieces that have been passed down through several generations. The living room has a smart TV("basic channels"), DVD/Blu-ray player, a wood burning fireplace, rustic chandelier and grand piano. Main house is air-conditioned.

About Byron

Eighteen years ago we came across a 150-year-old vacant lot hidden in the middle of a residential block in Saint Helena. We jumped at the chance to live there, and designed and built this contemporary home with a nod to the iconic western storefront with metal roofs and siding one sees around town.

Byron purchased this house in 1998

Why Byron chose Saint Helena

Location and privacy. Walk to wineries, vineyards, specialty food and wine stores, bakery & coffee shops, farmers market, playgrounds, great restaurants, cinema, luxury shopping, tennis & bocce courts and a health spa with a pool.

What makes this house unique

Modern, unique architecture in a close-in yet private location in a safe

upscale small town location. This comfortable gathering place allows guests to easily enjoy themselves without a car, creating a casual and relaxing atmosphere.

Great location new a lot of wineries and shopping

  • 5 of 5

Home was clean but would be nice to have some extra towels. Bedrooms were comfy and outside space perfect for enjoying some wine and friends. Showerhead needed replaced and owner was easy to reach and resolved quickly. Perfect location near all off Napa’s wineries and shopping!

Great location and accommodations for a girls weekend away!

  • 5 of 5

A total of seven of us stayed at the Napa Valley Hideaway for four days while on a long weekend trip and were quite pleased with the location and accommodations. The house is a quick walk to Main Street St. Helena which has a ton of restaurants, shopping, and things to do. The house itself was clean, roomy, and the beds were comfortable. The cottage is detached from the house, but is a 10 step walk through a little patio / courtyard to a door to the main house. There is no air conditioning in the cottage, however the windows opened allowed for a nice breeze to cool off the warm midday sun. The kitchen was small, but had everything you could imagine needing and more to make breakfast and dinners for all of us. We enjoyed drinking our morning coffee in the courtyard and settled in each night in the same. It was perfect for our group and we would absolutely stay there again.

A Hidden Gem in St. Helena

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here in April of 2017. This is the fourth year we stayed at this property. It meets all our needs, but the best is the location. It is off a quiet street in St. Helena and is about 4 blocks from Main Street. That is perfect for us because we can walk to our favorite restaurant, Cook. The house is spacious and well equipped. We don't do a lot of cooking but it has everything we need to have a light breakfast in either the dining room or outside on the patio. On warm afternoons, we love to sit at the outside table, open a bottle of wine and enjoy the Napa Valley climate. I always tell folks that the air is a little fresher and the sun a little brighter there! Do consider this property for your next visit.

Property was great. Clean and well kept.

  • 4 of 5

Our only complaint, there is one towel and one wash cloth per person for 3 days. No extras, no laundry soap to wash them. Everything else was great. We would probably stay there again.

We are located in a very pleasant off the road spot with an easy level walk to downtown's mid area. Across from our lane is a small park with picnic tables and benches.
