Napa Ranch House

Featured at ArchitecturalDigest.com​

Destroyed in the October 2017 Nuns Fire, this home’s casual but elegant style was well-suited for the wide open spaces of the working cattle ranch that it sat on. The design’s board and batten siding with standing seam metal roof offered country farmhouse styling, while the six lift-and-slide doors throughout the main house invited a harmonious connection to the outdoors. The patio kitchen beside the infinity edge pool and the multiple spas, beckoned residents and guests to take in the vistas while at leisure. 16- x 12-foot barn doors were featured on the home’s attached garage. Accessing the site required creating a 3/4 mile road.

The owners have begun rebuilding, using the same team.
