This is the finest residential property in Yountville

BlogAtoZ-YYes, we’re getting near the end of the Blogging from A to Z Challenge. Aren’t You thrilled? Today we’re heading up to the whine, whoops wine country to see what prices are doing far from the SF/SV axis of insanity.

And, Yoiks! This doesn’t look much different!  A generous but not ginormous house, on a comfortable, but by no means estate-quality lot. Perhaps the owners thought they were in Saratoga or something?

Extraordinary custom-built California craftsman style home. Two-story main house with 3BD/2.5BA; pool house with kitchen & full bath; pool/spa plus numerous special features. Top quality throughout. This is the finest residential property in Yountville.

130428-jefferson-bedThere isn’t much for sale in Yountville right now, and we wondered which best exemplified the market.  There’s a snouty looking condo, two cottages crammed onto one lot, a brand new place with some really tired-looking pix, a tornado-watch of charming trailer mobile homes, and this Extraordinary custom-built California craftsman style home. 

Or should we say this Extraordinary custom-built California craftsman style home that’s been sitting on the market for 116 days.  Built right when the bottom was Yanked out of the exurban market in 2006, Yet.

Yikes, what to do? How about You let us know what You’d pick if you had to live in Yountville?

    Is it just deja vu, or have we actually seen a wine country property (maybe St. Helena?) before that was the “finest” in the area? Maybe I’m confusing it with the uncompromising address.

    Can you really put a price on being able to walk to The French Laundry? Heck, maybe you can even get a chance to eat there.

  3. sfbubblebuyer Says:

    Sold in 2004 for 550k. So the house is worth 2.5 million? I doubt seriously that it cost 2.5 million to build that McVinyard.

    Nearly $1200/sf? Yountville is my favorite town in wine country, but that’s a ridiculous price.

    Did anyone click on the “brand new place with tired pix?” Whoever designed that one was clearly aesthetically challenged, or they didn’t how the front elevation would look after it was built.
