One of the first things you see when you look at this listing is a description that reads, “The residence of a renowned winemaker (think Ferrari Carrano and J Vineyards and Winery)…” which pulls you into wondering just who this winemaker is…until you notice the view. The panorama of the Alexander Valley welcomes anyone who stops in, suggesting that sitting down and relaxing with a good glass of wine and simply enjoying may be the most important thing at the moment.

The 6.6 acres that this Contemporary 3 story home sits on also features a swimming pool, and a two-car garage with two adjacent studios for hobbies, play, or wine storage.

Built in 1977, the main house is 2,613 square feet and makes use of the space with an open floor plan, clean lines, and plenty of windows to make sure that whether you’re relaxing in the dining room, or entertaining in the kitchen, the pastoral view is always on display.
