From original cooperage to modern living in Napa wine country: See this home
An original cooperage has been turned into a unique Napa Valley wine country estate, and it’s for sale for $5.195 million
The property at 1085 Lodi Lane in St. Helena was converted from a business making barrels and casks into a modern industrial residence about 15 years ago, the first of two renovations that made the estate what it is today, according to listing agent David Grega of Compass.
First, the cooperage was artistically made over by San Francisco-based Kuth Ranieri Architects. Then, in 2014, the current owners worked with St. Helena architect Peter J Collins to refurbished the entire property, including the addition of the pool, guest house and new landscaping.
With that, the onetime industrial space and 1.6 acres of land was completely transformed. The result is a 4,799-square-foot home with an open floor plan that makes great use of 20-foot ceilings, glass, concrete, metal, original tresses and wood cross beams.
There are four ensuite bedrooms, 4.5 baths, a media room, family room, guest house, outdoor kitchen, pool, spa and fruit orchard.
“In 2014 the current owners combined their regional sensibility with a cosmopolitan flair to modernize and refurbish the entire property to fit their needs and create a uniquely superb Napa Valley estate,” according to the listing.
The estate offers lots of privacy and grapevines are just a short walk from the house, which also offers valley views.
