As though rising among the St. Helena vineyards like a megalith, this unrivaled Napa Valley Modern Vineyard Estate on 20+/- acres is the rare confluence of world-class, modern architecture & design, the highest caliber construction and an enviable, ultra-private location within minutes from town.
Having completing five years of planning, design & build, notable Bay Area architect Lewis Butler’s vision of a modern vineyard masterpiece reveals now. Featuring dramatic 14-foot walls of brushed travertine to showcase the exterior and interior spaces, the Whitehall Estate is commandingly sited with views of the
"A singular example of organic architecture and modernist design in napa valley. A minimalist vision in harmony with its environment, destined to create a California legacy."
14+/- sweeping, verdant acres of AVA Rutherford cabernet sauvignon grapes that surround.
At 6,700sf (10,365sf under roof), this modern Residence features elements rarely found in new homes: imbued infrastructure commensurate for a hotel or subdivision, a curtain-wall system enabling colossal glass areas, elite Schüco window systems and a steel-suspended, floating system for showcasing a wine collection.
Whitehall’s architectural pedigree is first introduced at the iconic Gate House and again in the landscaped entrance courtyard, where high walls reveal an inlaid water feature by celebrated sculptor Archie Held, whose commissioned works are on display at institutions worldwide.
The monumental travertine walls continue indoors, where grand-scale entertaining rooms with soaring ceilings and 14-foot walls of glass and stone create stunning views of the enveloping lush vineyards and the mountains that surround.
Large glass walls slide open to create seamless indoor/outdoor experiences with an “only-in-California,” Mid-Century ambiance of spaciousness and light.
Earth’s elements such as hand-selected, figured French walnut surfaces and large-scale Italian porcelain stone flooring create natural art as well a sense of unified space. Every turn reveals dramatic, rolling views of vineyards and Napa Valley foothills, a counterbalance to Whitehall’s clean, modern lines.
The most remarkable living room revels in 14-foot glass walls showcasing rolling views of the lush vineyards and foothills that surround. Southern & Western glass walls slide open to bring outdoor sensations indoor. An Ortal fireplace with a steel surround occupies the focal point of the room. The adjacent dining area is positioned to benefit from the dynamic vineyard views.
Joining the remarkable living and dining areas at the centermost core of the Residence is an oversized 21st century kitchen and an adjacent, well-appointed family room. A hidden butler’s kitchen and pantry provide additional sets of appliances and copious storage -- fuel for entertaining family and guests, alike.
Whitehall’s principle entertaining spaces open to the majestic, outdoor pool pavilion, where the boundary between indoors and out is uninterrupted. Interior walls slide open and close to recess into adjacent walls to provide privacy between the large-scale entertaining spaces. The sun-drenched, outdoor pavilion is complete with a lava-stone fireplace, open-air Kitchen and a sumptuous, infinity-edge swimming pool and spa.
Whitehall and nature continue to be linked through its entertaining spaces: the enveloping vineyards contribute to the glass-walled, steel-suspended, floating wine showcase, architecturally dramatic by day and night. A media room/game room with substantial vineyard & foothill views features a wet bar to inspire playful diversion.
The master suite encourages essential relaxation to reset and recharge. Highlighted by bold accents of figured French maple, the over-sized suite encompasses a spa-like bath adorned in full-slab, Pentilicon honed marble, a voluminous walk-in closet, a sleeping area and a private office or yoga/meditation room with panoramic views of the vineyard and beyond.
At the opposite end of the Residence, a junior master suite accompanies two additional, well-appointed guest bedrooms. All three rooms feature outdoor spaces that link to the entrance courtyard, providing a distinctive, sweeping view of Whitehall’s domain.
With glass-windowed doors that slide open, Whitehall’s three-car garage provides additional storage and two points of interior access to the home.
With glass-walls facing the vineyard, an adjacent Spa House of 776sf (1,400sf under roof) is flexible for use as an art space or yoga/fitness studio. Inside, enjoy a full bath and steam shower finished with Riverstone clear bianco tiles. Steps ahead find the sports court and a neighboring putting green/helipad.
Visiting guests, family or personal staff will luxuriate in the privacy of the 2,250sf (3,000sf under roof), three-bedroom Guest House -- built to reflect the design and proportions of the Whitehall’s Main Residence -- and is accompanied by its own swimming pool, carport and lush lawn.
Technology and infrastructure further distinguish Whitehall. The on-site generator is capable of running all structures and their related elements simultaneously. The property has been outfitted with a reverse osmosis water-filtration system, three wells, and dedicated water supplies for the three structures, landscaping and vineyards. Advanced systems for lighting, window shading, climate control, entertainment, and security were designed for the most sophisticated owner, as the most comprehensive end-user requirements were understood and exceeded.
The Whitehall vineyard, in its third leaf, will soon enjoy its first harvest enabling the new owner to consider creating a private label Cabernet Sauvignon wine. The Whitehall winery license has been approved for a 10,000 gallon per year production facility.
Never before has a Vineyard Estate providing world-class, Mid-Century architecture & design, the highest caliber infrastructure and construction, as well as an enviable, ultra-private location within minutes from St. Helena been available for purchase.
Having completed five years of planning, design & build, notable Bay Area architect Lewis Butler’s vision of a modern vineyard masterpiece is ready for its new owner to begin the ultimate vineyard lifestyle, a legacy designed to be enjoyed from generation to generation.
Architecture should speak of its time and place, but yearn for timelessness
