At an unprecedented moment, and for the first time in its history, an exceptional sanctuary is available for the most discerning. Set on a sundrenched, tree-dotted slope of West Marin’s iconic Black Mountain, overlooking the Nicasio reservoir, West Wind Estate and Winery offers 32 acres of privacy and quality.
• This ultimate West Marin compound provides unsurpassed infrastructure for an off-the-grid experience: solar array, well and spring water, generators, electric car chargers, and private roads.
• Built with authentic, highest-quality Japanese construction, both the main residence and guest residence were designed to harmonize with the natural environment, blending the line between outdoors and indoors.
• Led by a world-renowned master craftsman, built with sustainable, energy-efficient materials such as old-growth Port Orford cedar, copper roofs, cherry wood floors, and integral-color plaster.
• West Wind’s winery and 2400 sqft wine cave – believed to be the only cave of its kind in Marin – include catering facilities and have hosted many events.
• Two acres of planted Pinot Noir and Cabernet Franc, as well as orchards of Italian olive trees and fruit trees, supply the estate’s wines and pressed olive oils.
• Multiple accessory buildings, such as an art studio/workshop, a Japanese Kura or treasure house (construction to be completed Spring 2021) and barn, offer many possibilities.
• Exquisite formal Japanese gardens, Koi ponds, and walking paths beckon.
• On-property recreational opportunities abound, including hiking, cycling, bocce, and swimming in the 50,000-gal pool.
• Equestrian facilities are nearby.
• Only 20 minutes by car to Hwy 101, and yet a world apart, West Wind Estate offers the ultimate retreat.
