Home of the Week: Simply Elegant Napa Valley Retreat

Noted Bay Area/Hawaii architect Shay Zak collaborated with his wife, designer Mary Moore, to create this Wine Country compound.

They combined their skills to create a vast, airy estate that blends indoor and outdoor spaces into a world of easy elegance and  streamlined simplicity.

Set in the heart of St. Helena, 1318 Stockton Street  is a celebration of natural materials. Wide-plank, solid-oak floors; Carrara marble; and view-framing black steel Fleetwood windows and doors define the functionally beautiful tone.

Among the highlights of the fully furnished home is an open-plan great room that incorporates the kitchen and dining area along with two living spaces.

On the upper level — home to four en-suite bedrooms — all rooms open to an expansive deck with views of the serene pool courtyard and the stunning mountain view beyond.

A nearby guest house features two en-suite bedrooms divided by a breezeway.

Award-winning San Francisco landscape architect Andrea Cochran designed the evocative outdoor setting of column boxwoods, tall succulents, fruit-bearing olive trees, fragrant star jasmine, and creeping fig vines. A private drive leads to the detached two-car garage.

The one-of-a-kind dream is listed by Gina Elliott at $5,100,000.
