Located on a gentle oak-studded knoll  with idyllic views of rolling hills, distant mountains and a sea of vineyards, this 18-acre parcel offers an iconic Napa Valley setting with approved plans for a beautiful modern barn-style residential compound.  In less than an hour's drive, one is transported from the hectic pace of the San Francisco Bay Area to a peaceful and private retreat, providing a year-round haven for rest and relaxation.  Over the last two years, the sellers navigated the arduous and complex entitlement process with Napa County to produce a turn-key solution for buyers wishing to build their own customizable home, but without having to assume the risks and wait-times involved in the design and permitting process. The approved plans feature a 4-bedroom 6,180 +/- sq ft main residence, 2- bedroom 1,199 +/- sq ft guest house with kitchen, and 3-car garage, specifying a rough sawn cedar exterior, wood clad windows, and corrugated metal roof. The main residence showcases an impressive light-filled great room with large scale pocketing doors opening to the dramatic views, a luxurious master suite with generously proportioned spaces, a nearby study, an open chef's kitchen and family room, scullery, and wine cellar. The plans provide for an abundance of outdoor living space conceptually centered on the pool with integral spa overlooking breathtaking views, a bocce court, pool pavilion with outdoor kitchen, dining area and full bath, and stunning modern design hardscapes. The property also enjoys  a 1.87 +/- acre Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard planted in 2005 and yielding an annual harvest to produce about 150 to 200 cases of a single varietal wine.
