Balancing form and function, this wine country estate combines the rustic chic of California’s wine country with the Old World elegance of a classic French farmhouse. An air of coolness and sophistication pervades the interiors of the 4,329-square-foot residence, which are accented with natural elements, subdued hues, and luxurious finishes throughout.
At the heart of the home is a great room with a vaulted open-beam ceiling, dormer windows, and rich wood floors. It encompasses a kitchen, a living room, and a dining area.
A relaxed living area with custom bookshelves and a gracious stone fireplace lies just off the kitchen and opens to the dining area.
The kitchen offers two islands, sliding pocket windows overlooking the grounds, and Dutch doors opening to an elevated wraparound veranda.
The master bedroom and bath are spacious, peaceful, and classically appointed.
Plentiful windows throughout offer idyllic views in nearly every direction.
The home’s lower level includes guest quarters, a media room, and an impressive wine cellar.
This floor opens to a ground-level piazza leading to the estate’s lawn, pool, cabana, and outdoor kitchen.
The grounds encompass a verdant lawn and a garden flourishing with roses, gardenias, hydrangeas, and olive trees.
Spaces for lounging and entertaining are abundant throughout.
From an alfresco dining area draped in vines to an outdoor kitchen and a swimming pool accompanied by an open-air cabana with a fireplace, Bella Oaks possesses an inescapable joie de vivre.
