Set at the crest of the hill, the main residence has panoramic views of Mount St. Helena from the main entry. The residence and pool house were designed in a traditional farmhouse vernacular, carried out in a mixture of stone and board-and-batten siding with standing-seam roofs of corten steel.

With just two bedrooms, a great deal of space was devoted to the home’s public areas, which included a library, large kitchen, family room and formal dining room topped by a distinctive barrel-shaped roof. Offset at an angle from the primary structure, the master bedroom seemed set apart from the home’s more public spaces.

Tucked into the steeply sloping hillside, the barn – fittingly painted barn red – was designed to store tractors and ranch trucks. The two-story structure also housed an office and exercise area in the second-floor loft, which opened directly onto the hillside’s upper slope. A wine cellar on the lower level benefitted from the hillside’s passive cooling.
