Location: Glen Ellen, California
Though it's no secret that we at Curbed lust after midcentury modern gems and otherwise historic homes, a contemporary one will often speak to our beating hearts. This Northern California vineyard estate is one of them—and would be perfect for the Silicon Valley power player who has everything.
Settled into the lush, majestic landscape of Sonoma County, the 5,500-square-foot, three-bedroom villa combines the best of traditional and contemporary styles. Its ivy-covered stucco walls, barrel-tiled roofs, and Venetian plaster surfaces reflect the home's Old World inspirations, while its sleek and clean interiors convey more modern considerations. The house features a wine cellar, screening room, gym, a secret garden and secluded spa off the master suite, and a guesthouse, making it a fabulous place to unwind—and entertain.
But, if we're being honest, it's the property's outdoor spaces that steal the show from the tiny-bit-cheesy house itself. The estate sits on 22 acres of sustainable land that includes premium certified organic grape vines (approximately three acres of Zinfandel and seven acres of Syrah), 60 olive trees, a fruit orchard, and raised garden beds. Solar panels alone power the entire estate, while a detached two-car garage features a Tesla powering station (of course). A swimming pool terrace overlooks the stunning panorama of the land. Wouldn't it be nice.
