Working Vineyard

SLO County, CA

This gorgeous ranch-style home is set in the middle of a working vineyard in northern San Luis Obispo County. Surrounded by cabernet sauvignon vines and sprawling valley oaks, this home feels like a personal retreat. It has an excellent solar orientation on the top of a rise with the vineyard falling away from it an all sides. It is kept cool in the hot wine country summers by whole-house ventilation, plenty of mass and properly sized window over-hangs. There is no need for air conditioning. The floors are exposed stained concrete with hydronic heat. A handsome metal roof and smooth stucco exterior contribute to its fireproof qualities.

This home sports an ICF-walled walk-in wine cellar with custom cabinetry. The entertainment possibilities continue with a back yard living area complete with a large outdoor kitchen, a wood-fired pizza oven, barbeque, a bocce ball court and a lap pool.
