October 12, 2012

40 Auberge Road, is a timeless contemporary home designed by renowned Architect Scott Johnson.  Robert Lieff, founder of Lieff Cabraser Heimann & Bernstein, purchased 21.5 acres in 1998– he wanted to build a home full of character, not the usual stock. He opted for a corrugated steel and glass home, which over the years has won plaudits for it’s design. Contiguous to Auberge Du Soleil, his property is truly a unique offering, built to enjoy the view of the famed Sonoma and Napa Valleys.

The main house is approximately 3,500 square feet and offers 2 spacious bedrooms with 2 ancillary rooms for an office and gym. Equally as breath taking is the outdoor space designed by both Roger Warner and Jack Chandler. Meticulously sculpted mature trees are preserved to enjoy but windowed to enjoy the magnificent views. A dramatic lap pool runs perpendicular to the structure. A 2-bedroom guesthouse, located below the main house won an AIA Award for design. Outside a magic garden sensation envelops onlookers for the meticulously sculpted, mature trees tat punctuate the property. Trees one might choose to enjoy from the sanctuary of the 75 foot lap pool that runs perpendicular to the main structure.

Topping off the amazing property is the 4 acres of Vineyards set on such exquisite terroir, that they birth Cabernet Sauvignon rated at a 93 from Robert Parker) and that yield is between 6.6 to 10 tons annually.
