In 2019, Bill Falk and his wife Dina fell in love with a particularly dreamy property hidden in the famous Napa Valley wine region of Northern California and knew they had to make this “beautiful, tranquil and private” property their own.

The couple – he is go-to-market president of cybersecurity company Actifile and she is a landscape architect – eventually bought the 70-plus-year-old property for $2.3 million and then restored and renovated it, including a new patio and a 40-foot swimming pool. Now, just over five years later, the Falks are putting their completely remodeled property up for sale, asking nearly $5.2 million for it.

“We can’t think of a better place in the valley,” Bill and Dina said in a statement. “On many warm afternoons, a lovely cool breeze blows through the vineyards and onto our patio as if to say, ‘The day is done… sit down and enjoy it a little while longer.'”

Behind the gates, between two separate lots set on a scenic vineyard-lined road off Highway 29, the 1-acre estate includes a sleek, modern main house designed by Seattle architect Matthew Stannard of Stillwater Dwellings, a cottage-style guesthouse, and a restored and converted barn with an upstairs apartment and a downstairs entertainment area—a total of five bedrooms and three baths in nearly 3,500 square feet. There’s also smart home technology to remotely manage the property’s security, climate, lighting, and irrigation systems.

Particularly striking is the main house at the rear of the property, which includes two bedrooms with walk-in closets and bathrooms, as well as a living room with fireplace and a kitchen with custom birch cabinetry, Caesarstone countertops, a dining island and stainless steel appliances. Across a fence in front of the house is the two-bedroom, one-bath guest house. It features a living room with fireplace and large windows overlooking a private Cabernet vineyard, a kitchen with accompanying dining area and an office space with direct access to a one-car garage with laundry facilities.

Many festive events have taken place in the rustic, modern barn.

The rustic-style entertainment barn features a stage, bar and climate-controlled wine cellar downstairs and a fully equipped one-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment upstairs. Rounding it all out are Josh Chandler-designed grounds with gardens, fruit trees and water features, a pool and steel-clad hot tub, a fire pit for seating, a built-in Lynx grill, a bocce ball court and numerous spots ideal for relaxing and entertaining outdoors while admiring Napa’s famous hot air balloons.

Although the Falks say the property has “exceeded our expectations and holds too many memories to list,” the couple has decided to sell because it’s time to “move on, travel a little and figure out what’s next!”

The listing is done by Shana Rohde-Lync of Compass and Erin Lail of Coldwell Banker.
