Home of the Week: Spectacular Villa Montana Blends Old World Antiquities, Modern Elegance

Villa Montana
Villa Montana was built in 2003 but looks centuries older.

Quarterback Joe Montana was an undisputed superstar when he led the San Francisco 49ers to four Super Bowl wins in the 1980s.

Today, his palatial home in Sonoma County‘s Knights Valley is every bit a superstar among Bay Area properties.

Villa Montana is without peer: a baronial mansion with world-class amenities, set on an estate of more than 500 acres near Calistoga in one of Northern California’s premier wine-growing regions.

The main residence encompasses 9,700 square feet, blending Old World antiquities and the work of today’s finest craftsmen. It was built with massive, hand-hewn beams; ancient stone and terracotta flooring imported from Italy and France; carved Baroque wood portals; artifact Italian fireplaces; and authentic plaster frescoes by master French artisans.

Built in 2003, the home includes a great room, formal dining room, loggia, three bedrooms, three-and-a-half bathrooms, a sitting room, kitchen and breakfast room, media room, an office, and a wine cellar and tasting room.

On the grounds is a large guesthouse, gym, pool and spa, full-size basketball court, bocce ball court, skeet-shooting range, professional-grade equestrian center, olive farm, gatehouse, and caretaker’s residence.
