Explore this charming and historic vineyard estate
The only thing better than visiting a winery is living on one, and oenophiles can do just that at 1777 Inglewood Ave in Saint Helena. Situated on a 10.2-acre lot overlooking the Mayacamas Mountains, this verdant estate was built off of the pre-Prohibition era stone winery that Captain Thomas Amesbury erected in the 1800s. Today, the estate is home to over 7 acres of vineyards and a producing olive grove, making it the perfect setting for anyone who wants to try their hands at growing grapes or making their own olive oil. Far removed from the fast-paced frenzy of city living, this leafy, lush setting will help owners feel right at home within nature.
The estate is anchored by a regal stone residence with three bedrooms, three baths, and one half bath. Characterized by stone walls, French doors, and wood-beamed ceilings, the living room shows off a chic farmhouse sensibility. A floor-to-ceiling fireplace serves as the center of the room, while a cozy window seating nook functions as the perfect place to sip a glass of wine while reading a book.
Designed with chefs in mind, the airy kitchen comes with a large wood center island and state-of-the-art appliances. It’s located just steps from a formal dining room, where residents can easily host a crowd. After enjoying a meal, guests can head down to the bar for an after-dinner cocktail.
Situated on the second floor, the light-drenched master suite is outfitted with a fireplace, glass doors that lead to a patio overlooking the grounds, and a lavish bath with a deep soaking tub. The additional bedrooms are both well-sized and inviting, with large windows that frame the mountains and vineyards beyond.
There’s plenty of room to accommodate staff and guests alike on the property: additional housing options include a two-bedroom guest house, a one-bedroom caretaker’s cottage, and a pool house with its own game room. The striking grounds include a tennis court, a large green lawn ideal for picnicking or playing croquet, and a sparkling pool and hot tub. The undeniable star of the show, however, are the mazes and gardens designed by Walter Guthrie.
