Up a private gated drive and past a shimmering pond, this glorious Tuscan-style estate offers the rare opportunity to live in luxury surrounded by 29 acres of productive vineyards and 500 olive trees.
Built in 2005, the property is zoned for agricultural and equestrian use. Designed for intimate gatherings as well as large-scale entertaining, the 2-story home has been the setting for many charity events. Combined seating for up to 100 guests can be arranged in the dining room and courtyard.
Situated within the Santa Rita Hills American Viticultural Area, Bob Jennings in our Santa Ynez Valley office is the listing agent for the estate at 4777 East Highway 246, Lompoc, offered at $9,750,000.
Cathedral ceilings, travertine-tile floors, and 5 wood-burning fireplaces set the coastal-lifestyle ambience for this fabulous villa offering views of vineyards and rolling hills from almost every room. In the dining room are two climate-controlled Sub-Zero wine cabinets that hold 65 bottles each. A separate temperature-controlled wine cellar accommodates 1,200 bottles.
Sprawling over 7,336 square feet, the home offers 4 bedrooms, 4 en-suite bathrooms, 3 powder rooms, and a 1,200-square-foot manufactured home/guest quarters, all on a 40-acre lot. The large kitchen with center island is outfitted with a 6-burner-and-grill Viking range, 2 Wolf ovens, 2 Miele dishwashers, plus a separate area for food prep with a wineglass dishwasher and ample room for storing wineglasses, silverware, dinnerware, and utensils. Furnishings are negotiable, and a security system is in place.
A long lap pool and a spa are centerpieces of the relaxing courtyard, which also has a wood-burning pizza oven and natural-gas BBQ for alfresco entertaining. The manufactured home on site has two bedrooms, two bathroooms, and a kitchen. It can be used as a guesthouse or caretaker’s quarters. The attached garage accommodates 2 vehicles. The grape and olive inventory is as follows: 25 acres of Pinot Noir vines / 115, 667, 777 Pommard clones; 4 acres of Chardonnay vines / Wente and Dijon clones; 500 Tuscan olive trees – Tuscan and Spanish Manzanillo cultivars.
The grapevines are leased in place for all producing vines for the next 9 years to Hall Family Wines in Napa. They use WALT Pinot Noir as their label.
