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.
Also included on the property: a separate 1-bedroom, 1-bath guest house, a barn-style 1,255-square-foot 2-bedroom, 2-bath second home with a cathedral ceiling and rustic modern kitchen.
“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.”
