‘Blue Sky Home’ in Wine Country

This house perched on a wine-country hillside gives away little when you approach it from the driveway — just a bold wall that reveals the owners’ favorite color.

Swing open the large, pivoting front door, though, and you’re hit by a giant view beyond a wall of windows.

The home, designed and built for a local family in the wine business, is Casa Cielo Azul — the “Blue Sky Home.”

“He designed the house to create a sense of surprise,” said Cyd Greer, the listing agent with Coldwell Banker Brokers of the Valley. “You don’t really have a sense of what you’re in for when you get there.”

Mexico-trained architect Juan Carlos Fernandez designed the modern home, which was built by contractor Mark Grassi. The owners, who recently sold a Napa Valley winery, asked for an easy-living space that incorporated the color blue.

The sophisticated and private home combines indoor and outdoor living with walls of windows that fold away to access an outdoor terrace with a fireplace and infinity-edge pool.

Touches of blue carry through the home’s design, such as blue tile in the master bathroom. It also has an outdoor shower, a spa, and a kitchen that centers on a very large marble island.

“When you’re in this house, it is very hard to take your eyes off this view,” said Greer. “It’s a very easy-living house. It just feels right.”
