Napa Valley will welcome its first Four Seasons Resort to Calistoga when Four Seasons Resort and Private Residences Napa Valley opens in early 2019. As of now, residential sales are underway on the 20 exclusive, full-ownership homes that will be part of the first phase of the resort development. The location, paired with a pleasant climate and vibrant social calendar year-round, makes Four Seasons Resort Napa Valley the ideal setting to immerse yourself in the best of Wine Country and an excellent home base to explore the region.
Construction of the hotel and 20 two-, three-, and four-bedroom residences has begun under the management and direction of Bald Mountain Development. One of the most unique offerings available to residence owners will be the winery and vineyard located on the property, which will be led by renowned winemaker Thomas Rivers Brown, recipient of 20 perfect 100-point wine scores from The Wine Advocate. Residence owners will collaborate with the winemaker in the winemaking process, from harvesting and fermentation to blending and bottling. Owners will also have the privilege of creating proprietary wine blends with Brown, tailored to their family’s individual preferences, as well as designing custom labels and gift boxes. The winery’s private wine room with individual temperature controlled wine storage, as well as a private tasting area, will be accessible exclusively to residence owners.
The residences are inspired by the agrarian heritage of the region and are offered in layouts of two-, three-, and four-bedrooms, and in single and two-story configurations. Designed with an open floorplan by famed resort architect John Hill, the homes feature spacious indoor and outdoor entertaining spaces, multiple lavish master suites, a two-car garage, and private terraces with sweeping views of the resort vineyard and mountain peaks studded with some of the most storied vineyards in the Napa Valley appellation. Residence owners may also choose a Four Seasons-approved furnishing package designed by St. Helena local Erin Martin Interior Design, and have the option of placing their residence in the short-term rental program with the resort. Pricing for homes begins at $3.5 million.
Residence owners will also enjoy VIP access to the resort’s incredible collection of amenities and activities, including a world-class restaurant, a spa, an indoor and outdoor fitness center with state-of-the-art equipment, and close proximity to the highly anticipated 47-mile Vine Trail that will connect the valley’s charming towns.
