Five Homes with Fountains That Really Make a Splash

Whether classically detailed or uniquely sculptural, a fountain brings visual interest and the soothing sounds of water to any property. Each of these five homes — from the Hamptons to California’s wine country — uses a fountain to turn an outdoor area into a peaceful, luxurious oasis.

Historic Napa Valley Estate

Late-19th-century classicism pervades this estate, once a winery owned by Capt. Thomas Amesbury. In the luxurious 3,500-square-foot three-bedroom home, period features have been retained to preserve a timeless charm, while high-end materials and up-to-the-minute amenities have been added. The 10.69-acre compound also consists of thriving roses enveloping a fountain, a two-bedroom guesthouse, a pool and poolhouse, a carriage-style three-car garage and caretaker’s cottage, lush lawns, a tennis court, vineyards, an olive grove, and formal gardens with yet another fountain at their center.

Offered at: $15,000,000
