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