This Howard Backen inspired modern retreat in Ross on over an acre is reminiscent of a boutique winery in Napa with 5 bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms and beautifully landscaped grounds. Designed by acclaimed local designer Jennifer Tidwell of The Workroom, and flawless construction by Adamas Builders the home is the perfect blend of style and attention to detail. The dark wash wood siding sets the mood for this dramatic but cozy modern country vibe. The formal entry has soaring vaulted ceilings with exposed wood beams and paneling, double-sided fireplace, sitting nook and large deck with a concrete fire-pit for formal entertaining outdoors. The great room comprises the kitchen, dining and family room that are all interconnected with multiple outlets to the outdoor spaces with the spacious flat lawn on one side and a huge deck for dining and entertaining on the other. The indoor/outdoor flow is an integral part of the country living concept where the outdoors is really an extension of the living space. The kitchen feels like it comes from the pages of Elle Decor with custom rift white oak cabinetry, breakfast nook with a built-in bench with leather strap cushion seating, honed Calacatta Michelangelo marble, Waterworks fixtures, La Cornufe Range, Sub Zero fridge, freezer and wine storage. Upstairs are 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms including a private master suite accessed from its own windowed bridgeway with vaulted ceilings and a master bathroom that will make you drool. The oversized shower and custom Arabescato Corchia marble tub are the epitome of luxury and comfort. 

The property has many multi-purpose spaces that are convenient for the current trend of spending more time at home. There is a separate home gym with a full bathroom with a steam shower, a spacious man cave/ladies lair that could be a great home office as well as a separate 1 bedroom 1 bath cottage guest house with kitchenette. A massive 4 car garage provides plenty of room for multiple cars and storage for all of your gear, and additional wine storage space gives this property every creature comfort imaginable. There are also conceptual drawings for a pool to make this retreat the ultimate at-home resort experience. This property feels like a vacation home in the wine country that you can escape to and relax and rejuvenate in comfort and style in a tranquil setting amongst the Oak trees and rolling hills.
