The current owners clearly had two priorities, the first being solitude: the house has just four bedrooms and no guest house, and it sits on over 55 acres, which is a heck of a buffer. The second priority is wine: in lieu of a pool, tennis court, bocce, or much in the way of landscaping, there’s a three-acre vineyard in “the perfect climate for producing Grenache and Syrah [….] The award-winning wine is bottled as Paredon” by Carr. (That link has more about how this property came to be.)

The house is a trademark Don Nulty Mediterranean villa, mixing the rustic (wood beam ceilings) with the fancy (arched windows, imposing mantels, vaulted ceilings, columns galore…). The listing mentions a “lovely formal dining room,” but it’s not shown, and if you like to cook, take a serious look at the lack of kitchen storage. Last but not least, a bit of contemporary decor would go a long way.

The bedrooms—two on the ground floor, a third and the master upstairs—are along the same lines.

As you might expect, there’s no shortage of appealing spots to enjoy a glass of wine alfresco.
