The farmhouse has a wrap-around porch that overlooks the vineyard and leads from the front of the house to the back, where there’s a swimming pool and outdoor entertaining area.

Stepping inside into the living room, a picture window frames the view while a high ceiling makes the room feel grand and open. Rough-hewn wood beams add a rustic touch, while black tiles have been used as a fireplace and television surround.

Behind the living room is the dining area and kitchen. Tiles laid in a herringbone pattern create a colorful backsplash that stands out against the white cabinets and white floating shelves. A wood and steel island (on wheels) can also be used as a dining table.

At the top of the stairs is a sitting area with views of the mountains in the distance. A balcony provides an alternative view of the living room below.

In the bathroom, a high ceiling makes the room feel spacious, while a tiled area is home to the walk-in shower and the freestanding white bathtub. On the opposite wall, a wood vanity is topped with a white counter and a large mirror helps to reflect light.
