Having completed five years of planning, design & build, notable Bay Area architect Lewis Butler’s vision of a modern vineyard masterpiece reveals now. Whitehall Estate is commandingly sited with views of the 14+/- sweeping, verdant acres of AVA Rutherford cabernet sauvignon grapes that surround.
At 6,700sf (10,365sf under roof), this modern Residence features elements rarely found in new homes: imbued infrastructure commensurate for a hotel or subdivision, and a steel-suspended, floating system for showcasing a wine collection. Large glass walls slide open to create seamless indoor/outdoor experiences with an “only-in-California,” Mid-Century ambiance of spaciousness and light.
At the centermost core of the Residence is an oversized 21st century Chef’s kitchen and a butler’s kitchen. The sun-drenched, outdoor pavilion features an open-air Kitchen and an infinity-edge swimming pool and spa.
The over-sized Master suite encompasses a spa-like bath, a voluminous walk-in closet and a private office or yoga/meditation room.
An adjacent Spa House of 776sf (1,400sf under roof) is flexible for use as an art space or yoga/fitness studio. Visiting guests, family or personal staff will luxuriate in the 2,250sf (3,000sf under roof), three-bedroom Guest House.
The Whitehall vineyard, newly planted in 2014 and in its fourth leaf, will soon enjoy its first harvest enabling the new owner to consider creating a private label Cabernet Sauvignon wine. The Whitehall winery license has been approved for a 10,000 gallon per year production facility.
