I am digressing from Yountville today to bring you what I consider the best buy in the Napa Valley. The property is located in St. Helena, 9 miles north of Yountville. St. Helena
and its surrounds have the highest priced properties in the Napa Valley. 1242 Madrona Avenue is one of those quintessential older homes, the tax records say 1935, on the West side (that’s imortant to the locals) with many original features and touches that give these homes their charm. Besides the old vintage appeal, the lot is on a corner and over 10,000 SF, again per tax records. The only drawback, the remodel kitchen and family room add-on was not done with the same charm and grace as the remainder of the home and needs the right person/architect to correct the look and make it right.
The reason I call this the best buy in the Valley, the price $895,000. This home which was originally price at $1,299,000 about 6 months ago and once the kitchen area is done right would have brought around $1.5M at the height of the market 3 years ago. As many of you know who read this blog, the Napa Valley is a true enclave and has weathered this down turn well. There is always a demand for homes with that special look and feel here and “if Madrona was done right”, it will shine bright once more and command a much higher price.
