Nestled amid the rolling hills, grandfather trees, and lauded vineyards of Kenwood, this peaceful 10-acre estate is a quintessential wine country haven with three residences, a heated pool aside entertaining pavilion, five acres of Cabernet vines, vibrant gardens, an orchard, a chicken coop, an olive grove, tasteful professional landscaping, areas of lush green grass, a bocce court, a fire pit and two wells.

Exemplifying classic modern Farmhouse charm, the main residence was rebuilt in 2011-12 and features a wonderful wrapping covered porch gazing out over the pool and vines to the hills; five bedrooms and baths; an airy great room with living, library, and dining spaces; an inviting kitchen; an office; and a chic covered rear terrace with view. Anchoring the home is a stylish, welcoming great room with a cathedral ceiling, a central fireplace, hardwood floors, a reading area with thoughtful built-ins, a dining area that easily accommodates 10, and walls of oversized windows and glass doors. The sleek open kitchen features an island with a butcher-block top and counter seating, soothing light and natural hues, and a La Cornue range. Just outside the dining area, a terrace includes covered and open-air space for sophisticated outdoor dining, a pass-through window to the kitchen with bar seating, and a warming fire pit—all with an inspiring view of the enveloping greenery. Not far off, tucked in a grove of mature oaks, is a sitting area with another fire pit.

On the home’s upper level, the owner’s suite is a calming retreat with a contemporary gas fireplace, a windowed sitting alcove, a dramatic view through an oversized arched window, and a relaxing spa-like bath with a soaking tub and a roomy shower. Each of the four guest bedrooms is similarly stylish and enjoys access to a luxurious bath. Other highlights include an enviable media room with a 4K projector, a 105-inch screen, and professional-grade sound; a quiet, contemplative office; a convenient new laundry room with storage cubbies; and a whole-house Savant media system.

At the heart of the estate, the refreshing swimming pool—heated in cooler weather—is a rejuvenating oasis surrounded by a sunny stone terrace. Perfect for outdoor entertaining and relaxing, the poolside gazebo has a fireplace and is outfitted with a built-in grill, a sink, an outdoor television, two refrigerators and ice machines.

The residences are connected by paved private drives and meandering lighted paths. Remodeled in 2011 in a charming style mirroring that of the main residence, the two-bedroom 1,200-square-foot guesthouse has a breezy front porch and a freestanding garage. The one-bedroom 800-square-foot guesthouse enjoys a wrapping covered porch. There is also a studio above aside the shop/warehouse attached to the equipment building that could be caretaker housing.

The property hosts five acres of Cabernet Sauvignon vines, planted in three blocks in 1999. Ned Hill of esteemed La Prenda currently manages the vineyard. Fittingly for a consummate California estate, the acreage also includes a grove of 120-year-old Mission olive trees. Amid the homes, vineyards, and trees are a colorful vegetable garden with a delightful vine-draped arbor, a thriving orchard, citrus trees, and a fully fenced custom chicken coop area.

Two wells provide water for the property—one filtered by a triple osmosis system and supplying the main residence, the other dedicated to agriculture. Heating, air-conditioning, and a Tesla electric vehicle charger are among the numerous modern amenities. Offering peace of mind are a gated drive, an industrial-grade Cummins generator with a 1,000-gallon propane tank, security and sprinkler systems, and a Tesla battery array for backup and power management.
