Curbed's Megan Barber takes a look at a chic modern farmhouse for sale in Napa County, Calif., that's brimming with 2018's top design trends.

Listed for $3,995,000 the 1962 structure was rebuilt by local firm Form + One Design in 2018. Its open floor plan's 16-foot ceilings and surplus of windows and skylights stream in sunlight and offer views from every room

Unlike the kitschy farmhouse tropes seen on HGTV, the 3,507-square-foot house is a natural extension both of California modernism and contemporary wine country architecture.

Wood beam, tongue-and-groove ceilings, a floating steel staircase, and a show-stopping walk-in wine fridge all provide detail in the main kitchen and living areas, but it’s hard to ignore the 1,500-square-foot flagstone patio and pool outside. Two master bedrooms (one upstairs, one downstairs) complement the airy guest rooms with clerestory windows and luxurious en suite bathrooms, and a separate living room, wet bar, and family room allow visitors their own gathering spaces.

Other details include locally sourced reclaimed wood, custom steel gates, and a picnic table from a 170-year-old fallen tree. A newly constructed 709-square-foot pool house offers another private suite, living room with fireplace, and two bathrooms, and the patio has a built-in propane BBQ that’s pool-party ready.
