Bella Oaks conveys a sense of timeless luxury without being pretentious, successfully marrying rustic and refined characteristics. The exterior of the main house’s rugged fieldstone and light gray stucco walls, 10’ wide veranda, and weathered metal roof belie a warm, welcoming Old-World charm with a relaxed feel. The distinctive use of natural elements, deliberate lines, and soft faded colors creates an elegant and comfortable home that offers commanding views of the surrounding foothills and vineyards from nearly every room. The interior favors calm, light grays, and warm antique whites. Painted shiplap, subway tile, industrial lighting, rich wood and venerable iron details tie together the combination of styles that embodies this picturesque historical narrative. The banister to the ground level floor and to the third-floor suite was custom made by Napa Valley ironmonger, Joe Lafarge, who painstakingly created a design inspired by a home in Italy. Nearly every element of this bespoke home is custom made. The functional style features numerous built-ins, all crafted by one of California’s most talented woodworkers, Garth Miller. From its columned cabana with white-painted ceiling beams and fireplace to its board and batten carriage barn, this versatile compound blends a century of American design into a single transcendent whole. A lush garden surrounds the home with roses, gardenias, hydrangeas, and olive trees, as well as a verdant lawn between the farmhouse, cabana, and barn. Balancing aesthetics and functionality beautifully, 1301 Bella Oaks offers multiple outdoor entertaining areas, gracious interiors, and practical design elements. A stunning rendition of a timeless classic, the French Farmhouse.
