Custom Contemporary Living in Carneros 
New Construction



A custom contemporary farmhouse designed and built by Tom Trainor.   It is a world above traditional spec homes in quality and finishes.  The home invites  natural sunlight into every room with high ceilings and elegant, open interiors. Everything you need is in this dream home situated on a sizable and private one acre lot in bucolic Carneros, minutes from downtown, and 45 minutes to downtown San Francisco. 

Upon parking in your 3 car garage, you walk up an inviting walkway to your front door, where you'll immediately be struck by the soaring ceiling and custom monitor roof illuminating the elegant yet cozy great room. You'll find architectural features that marry classic design and modern amenities throughout the home.  This four bedroom ensuite home has a very thoughtful layout that allows space for larger gatherings or intimate evenings. The living room is anchored by a cast stone and terrazzo fireplace and pocket doors that lead to one of the two inviting covered outdoor loggias. In addition to the formal living and dining space is a media room through barn doors for privacy and surround sound for the ultimate entertainment experience.

The chef's kitchen offers unique wood detailing with extensive custom rift-sawn bleached white oak cabinetry. Off the kitchen is a large butler's pantry with extensive storage and counter space, the perfect prep area for any size event. A laundry room opposite the butler's pantry and leads to the 3-car garage equipped with EV chargers. The Primary Bedroom with soaring ceilings and outdoor access, with the primary en suite opens out to the pool and yard lending itself to waking up to beautiful views and the morning sun.

The adjacent pool house comes equipped with the second of the two loggias and a second outdoor kitchen for your guests. The pool house includes two full baths, one with outdoor access from the pool.  The 36' pool and spa are the focal points placed centrally to all outdoor activity.   It is surrounded by stately olive trees, gardens, and an original, sizeable, tall metal barn for storage or your own creation.

This home's distinct design is ideal for the family that wants all the latest amenities with the warmth of a contemporary farmhouse in an earthy style to provide balance, comfort, and modern living.

Virtual Tour


Napa is an old city by California standards, founded in 1847. It’s a place with a colorful past - a jumping-off point for 49ers bound for the gold rush, birthplace of famous leather, and neighbor to some of the most prestigious vineyards in the world. For the past 30 to 40 years, the City of Napa has been in transition. The city that was once known for its tanneries, prune processing and State hospital is now more known for its hospitality, fine food, and luxury hotels. While yesterday’s jobs came largely in heavy industrial pursuits at Kaiser Steel, Basalt Rock, Napa Pipe, and Mare Island Shipyard, today’s workforce is mostly white collar and the economy is increasingly based on tourism. Today Napa is becoming a vibrant and modern town with a respect for its past. You will find visually stimulating contemporary architecture just down the road from our protected historic districts, home to some of northern California's finest Victorian homes. Minutes from our many safe and comfortable neighborhoods are the popular Main Street "Restaurant Row," the West End, and the Oxbow District. Our award-winning "living river" flood protection project has made Napa safer while enhancing the ecosystem and providing stimulus to the economy and quality-of-life benefits. Napa is a city with a low crime rate, a high standard of living, clean air, and nearly perfect weather.
