Just an hour outside San Francisco, in the golden hills of the Carneros region, lies an 80-acre vineyard estate — and one of California’s finest equestrian facilities. Napa Valley’s Toyon Farm has recently hit the market with an $18 million asking price, and it’s worth every penny.
Coldwell Banker Global Luxury (with Cyd Greer at the helm) has the task of finding a new owner for the charming, sprawling estate that features 30 acres of producing vineyards, ideal for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay varietals. The unique soil produces premium grapes that are sold to acclaimed wineries like Saintsbury, Ancien and Alpha Omega, among others.
The farm boasts loamy soil derived from sedimentary rocks with spots of volcanic tufa and gravel, and is maintained by abundant water from two irrigation ponds. Another 3.45 additional acres on the property are also plantable.
Besides the exquisite vineyards, Toyon Farm also incorporates an expansive equestrian facility, covering roughly 39,000 square feet of covered space and modern boarding facilities.
The estate includes horse barns with nine grooming areas, three tack rooms, a state-of-the-art, covered arena, and an indoor lunging ring. There’s also a stunning entry courtyard with a tiled fountain, shaded sitting areas and a drinking trough, designed by famed Mexican architect Ricardo Legoretta.
The living quarters at Toyon Farm are equally impressive and carefully designed. The 4,000-square-foot residence was designed by Robert Keenan in an Old World-inspired style, and was completed in 1989. In 1994, the home was renovated by Marcel Sedletzky, bringing it to modern standards and breathing new life into its light-filled rooms.
Some highlights of this stunning residence include a cathedral-ceiling great room featuring a cozy wood-burning fireplace, a temperature-controlled, 5,500-bottle wine cellar and tasting room, three bedrooms and a three-car garage.
The Toyon Farm residence also incorporates a butler’s pantry and laundry room, a family media room, an al fresco dining patio with a wood-burning fireplace/barbecue, an in-ground heated swimming pool and hot tub, and a 2,000-square-foot estate manager residence.
The master bedroom features large windows, a wood-burning fireplace with a porcelain tile surround, two walk-in closets, a master bathroom, and access to the back deck and pool area.
