Luxury Outlook 2022
An ambitious exploration into high-end residential markets across the globe.
One of the most idyllic, picturesque areas in wine country, St. Helena is the heart of Napa Valley—home to some of the region’s finest wineries and restaurants, the world-renowned Auberge du Soleil Resort, and some of its most captivating estates.

Located on a private hill just above these legendary vineyards and wineries, this 21-acre compound consists of a 13,000-square-foot main residence, a two-bedroom guesthouse, a one-bedroom guest cottage, a pool and pool house, and a private vineyard. It is perfectly perched to revel in a regal overlook on its rarefied setting.
A long-gated drive culminates at a circular motor court accented with statuary and distinctive plantings. Oversized windows and glass doors with artful metal detailing introduces a stylish main residence with soothing neutral hues; striking light fixtures; superior-quality materials, finishes, and fixtures; and a seamless indoor-outdoor flow. The open-plan living and dining area basks in cinematic views and flows effortlessly to an expansive terrace where an infinity-edge pool seems to cascade into the idyllic valley below. The streamlined kitchen is expertly equipped and boasts unique decorative details. At the top of the home’s dramatic staircase, an equally theatrical view takes center stage in the primary bedroom, which features a gas fireplace, sitting room with wet bar, two spa-level baths, two room-sized walk-in closets, and a private terrace.
Other highlights include a 1,700-bottle wine cellar, a gym with a mirrored wall and sliding glass doors opening to the grounds and admitting fresh breezes, and a covered outdoor kitchen and bar. Although the estate is next door to Auberge du Soleil, visitors need not travel beyond the bounds of the estate. The main residence offers three luxurious guest suites, while a guesthouse with a full kitchen and a cottage with a kitchenette offer exceptional seclusion and autonomy—making Round Hill an utterly private and secure oasis for enjoying an unparalleled Napa Valley experience.
