Located on a rarely-found lot of approximately seven acres, 1212 Bennett Lane features a 1+- acre of Cabernet Franc vines at its southern, sun-soaked edge.
The 3,676+- sq. ft. residence is approached by a wooden bridge and stone gate opening to a gravel drive and round, shaded motor court surrounded by fecund gardens enveloping the residence. A mature olive grove and central path lead to the home’s courtyard entrance and grand foyer approached through double doors.
Upon entering 1212 Bennett Lane, the immediate great room is captivating with its cathedral ceiling, wood-burning fireplace and stately picture windows framing perfectly the lush yard, foliage and vineyard beyond. The home’s grandeur continues to unfold; a gourmet chef’s kitchen and dining area are fitted with top appliances and verdant views, a library features cherry wood built-ins and opens directly to the yard through French doors, and two en-suite bedrooms offer luxuriant amenities, spa-like baths and serene privacy. The master suite, complete with double-door entrance and sitting area, has a generous walk-in closet with built in wardrobes and a master bathroom with dual vanities, jetted tub, walk-in shower and travertine floors with radiant heating.
An expansive backyard encourages indoor/outdoor living year-round. A sprawling lawn surrounds the central swimming pool while a wisteria-covered trellis offers a repose for al fresco dining located next to a built in-barbeque and stone-faced, wood burning fireplace. Rock-lined pathways meander through the grounds, inviting one to walk among the gardens, sitting areas and out to the vines.
A three-car garage, ample storage space, two private wells and a seven-zone Lutron lighting system further add to this rare slice of paradise in wine country at 1212 Bennett Lane.

At the northernmost area of the valley, nestled beneath Mount St. Helena, lies Calistoga — known for its hot springs, mud baths, spectacular views and luxury resorts. Compared to the polished ambiance of its neighboring communities, the thriving downtown area has a more western feel — but that does not mean luxury and relaxation are hard to find. On the contrary, Calistoga is known as the new playground for the rich and famous, with world-renowned resorts like Calistoga Ranch and Solage. Real estate values are on an upward swing as locals and wanna be locals invest in anticipation of the 2018 Opening of The Four Seasons Resort, and the Rosewood Hotel Group’s new resort which is due to begin construction in 2017 — so Calistoga will be home to the most luxurious resorts in Napa Valley.
In 2010, Calistoga’s AVA was established. It boasts the highest daytime temperatures in the valley and is home to many highly acclaimed wineries such as: Araujo, Aubert, Constant Diamond Mountain Winery, Checkerboard Vineyards, Chateau Montelena, Scharmsberg and Switchback.
For many who live here, they are glad to know, you will not find a fast-food restaurant anywhere. Instead Calistoga is home to delectable and satisfying restaurants like Solbar, which serves Napa Valley styled California fare with a focus on seasonal ingredients. One of the main attractions is Castillo di Amorosa, a 19th century castle that took 12 years to build.
Calistoga has spectacular views of Mount Saint Helena and the majestic palisades— it’s close to San Francisco and the Santa Rosa Airport and offers many opportunities for the wine connoisseur, lifestyle enthusiast, and participating in the growth of this flourishing town.
