Defining a word such as “exceptional” for a home can be a complicated endeavor: outstanding, unusual, not typical, an unusually high degree of quality. My listing on Chiquita Road is exceptional on many levels. The incredible attention to each detail of living in luxury and comfort within this property is startling.
I have had the distinct honor to represent both buyers and sellers on multiple occasions at Chiquita Road, four times to be exact. Each time I have been pleasantly surprised by the various enhancements. Currently, representing the sellers, I am overwhelmed by the generous improvements that have been made to this property. They further elevate this home's status as one of the most refined luxury estates I have ever represented. You must come and see.
As you turn into the drive, you are immediately transported into an elegant old-world European estate with more than 70± stately olive trees dotting the landscape and shading the primary residence's entrance. You are hugged with the sense of finding a home, a place to retreat and relax with family and friends with all your private resort amenities.
Everything has been thoughtfully designed to bring both beauty and comfort to your everyday life. From the lush primary residence to the spacious pool pavilion with dining room and outdoor kitchen. With the cozy pool house and a large barn with a guest unit above, there is room for all to play, rest, and gather in a tranquil setting. All of the buildings wrap around the pool, lawn, and petanque court looking out to the cabernet vineyard and olive grove. It’s truly a magical setting throughout with custom details and quality finishes.
It is not often in one’s career that you have the honor and opportunity to represent a property through an evolution over 29 years. I have this honor with the sale of 886 Chiquita Road. In 1991 it sold for $325,000 as raw land. The owners built their family home, a barn, and developed a high-end Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard. When they decided to sell in 2009, I represented them, and it sold for $1,750,000. The new owner virtually tore down the existing home, except for the fireplace, and recreated an elegant European style home with a stunning pool, olive grove, lush landscaping, and remodeled the guest unit above the barn.
Even though I did not represent this buyer when he decided to sell, I was asked to represent the sale again in 2012. It sold for $3,150,000. The new buyers have improved the property yet again with a pool pavilion, pool house, outdoor kitchen, petanque court, raised garden area, and many more exquisite details. I did not represent the current owners as buyers, but I am now representing them as sellers with an asking price of $6,995,000.
This stunning estate encompasses the epitome of the wine country lifestyle. It is located minutes from the historic Healdsburg Plaza down a private gated lane on an elevated knoll overlooking the vineyard and surrounding hills.
