A Tuscan-style estate on 19 acres in the Napa Valley with the promise of bountiful harvests is this week’s most expensive new listing on realtor.com®. Located in Oakville, CA, it’s now on the market for $26.5 million.
The listing hails the incredible property as “truly one of the most extraordinary estates to become available in Napa Valley in this decade.”
Built for the owner in 1994, the estate offers spectacular views of vineyards and mountains. Designed by architect Dante Bini, the home’s style reflects the owner’s native Tuscany.
So, grab a glass of vino and let’s tour the grounds.

The expansive compound comes with a main villa, guesthouse, caretaker’s house, and two barns. Also on the property are 6.5 acres of vineyards, Italian-style gardens, fruit trees, and an award-winning olive orchard.
The interiors are just as impressive. Decorated by designer Steven Volpe in collaboration with the owner, the impact is of a “Napa Valley dream estate.”
With 11 bedrooms, nine bathrooms, and three-half baths, the 12,700-square-foot main home is highlighted by a sumptuous salon with two fireplaces. In addition, there’s a spacious formal dining room, library, first-floor master suite, and exercise room.
The enormous kitchen features a sitting area as well as a fireplace. Other amenities include a wine cellar (of course!) and a media room.
Outside, the gated grounds include a pool, pergola, and stone bridge. Surrounding the grounds, Italian-style gardens of boxwood hedges, fragrant rosemary, and oleander dot the landscape. Along with the 100-year-old olive trees, cypress and colorful rose bushes add to the serene surroundings.
According to the Napa Valley Register, the owner has decided to spend more time traveling and wishes to simplify her life with the sale of the home.
The tasty property first popped up on the market about a year ago. Now, newly relisted, the Tuscan-style estate looks to be taking another sip of the market and its price outranked all others this week.
