Few properties can compare with this palatial villa in the ultra-prestigious location in California. With a 63-Acre vineyard, devoted to Cabernet grapes, a large central 23,000 square-foot villa, a 1,900 square-foot cottage, with four-bedroom, and two large barns big enough to house over 100 cars! Located in the Suisun Valley, the villa was constructed in 2002 for Willis Johnson, the founder and CEO of auto auction giant Copart.
The buildings are created to resemble classic 1950s American Main Street-style architecture and external finishes. The retro style is complete with vintage signs and incorporates a diner, a gas station and working garage workshop. There is even a soda fountain. The large barn garages were built to house Johnson’s bludgeoning classic car collection.
The main villa is reminiscent of grand European mansions. There are six bedrooms, which include a massive 2,000 square foot master bedroom. The living room ceiling reaches up to 24 feet, and the kitchen quarters include four freezers and three ovens, and an indoor pool. There is also a wine cave that stores up to 250 bottles in a controlled temperature.
The luxurious decorations include handcrafted Venetian, hand-painted murals as well as the ceilings. The ornate marble fireplaces and a grand double-winding staircase add to the mystic and allure of the place. The extensive vineyards provide 150,000 bottles of Cabernet wine, rich on the palate, every year. The entrance driveway is lined with olive trees which produce an annual 80 gallons of the most delicate olive oil.
The asking price of $12.9 million represents exceptional value for its size, exclusivity and location, not to mention the 100 car storage space! The unique decorations make this lovely property even more attractive and valuable.
