Luxurysafes Blog suggests: Mention the word “vineyard” and most people think of idyllic Tuscan villas, passing the centuries overlooking rows of grapes. This Whitehall Modern Vineyard in Napa Valley is as far removed from that as you can get. Set in St. Helena adjacent to 14 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, it has 6,500 square feet of clean-lined interior space, speckled with dashes of marble and features like the floating glass wine sculpture that looks open to the outdoors but is in fact climate controlled. The property also includes plenty of outdoor entertaining space, a sizable guest home with a pool, and a separate “spa house”, and while these are almost certainly renders of the final product, they’re impressive nonetheless.
A singular example of organic architecture and minimalist, modernist design, the Whitehall Modern Vineyard achieves true harmony and remarkable interplay between interior space and exterior landscape. Within and throughout three Estate structures, each space, element, amenity and accouterment complements its immediate and distant counterparts.
An award-winning team of architect, interior designer, landscape architect and master builder have combined their respective talents to create a residential masterpiece similar to none, setting the new standard for modern architecture in California’s Napa Valley wine country.

A sumptuous master suite features a spa-like, marble clad bathroom and private office with views spanning the vineyard & hills beyond. Three additional luxurious en-suite bedrooms enjoy indoor and outdoor spaces.
