Famous the world over for its vineyards, wineries, and sunny weather, St. Helena is a popular home base for families with young children, retirees, and oenophiles alike. Set on a secluded lot and surrounded by perfectly manicured shrubs as well as orange and walnut trees, 1706 Spring Street in St. Helena is an inviting refuge that can function as a main home or vacation getaway alike. The exterior of the house is wrapped in Napa Valley indigenous stone, giving it an earthy look seemingly inspired by pieds-a-terre in the rolling hills of Tuscany.

Inside, the open-concept living space shows off high ceilings, custom steel windows, and clean lines throughout. Subtle shades of gray and white give the home an airy, inviting aesthetic. Characterized by state-of-the-art stainless steel appliances and a curved center island, the kitchen serves as the perfect place to whip up a favorite recipe or make dinner with friends. A dining table is located just steps away. In the opposite corner of the room, a fireplace and couches serve as a gathering spot for friends.

Outfitted with two bedrooms and two baths, the house is perfectly sized for young professionals just starting out or retirees looking to downsize. The master bedroom, which features a vaulted gray ceiling, leads into a master bath with a deep soaking tub.  

Back in the living area, double glass doors on either side of the fireplace lead out to the backyard. A custom fire pit surrounded by chairs serves as the central focus of the alfresco space (s’mores and a glass of wine, anyone?). 

The yard is also equipped with a barbecue and a picnic table to make grilling and entertaining friends easier than ever. There’s even plenty of space for a pet, should would-be residents be dreaming of welcoming a new puppy or kitten to the family. A small separate building in the backyard can be reimagined as a workshop, art studio, or guest house.

Located within easy walking distance of downtown St. Helena, the house is perfectly positioned for those who want to peruse shops and restaurants on lazy autumn evenings. Realtor Ginger Martin holds the listing, which is currently on the market for $2.2 million.
