“First Restoration Hardware Residence” for sale in Napa Valley

If you were the head of Restoration Hardware, you’d naturally be tempted to do a home remodel that was RH top to bottom. The company’s CEO, Gary Friedman, not only did just that with a home in wine country, he personally led the RH design team throughout the two-year process. The result is pure Restoration Hardware, from the linens to the landscaping.


Listed for $10.5 million by Hillary Ryan of our Pacific Union Napa Valley office, Eight Palms in St. Helena features a 5,140-square-foot main house and 630-square-foot guest house.


Friedman describes the walled compound as “a study in balance, symmetry and perfect proportions.” The creative site plan placed the home on a diagonal axis across the property, expanding the vineyard views and allowing for an estate-sized pool and a guest house. “Every aspect has been personally redesigned by Friedman to capture a quintessential Napa Valley experience,” says Ryan. “For example, the living room opens to the loggia overlooking the pool and the beautiful surrounding vineyards and mountains — creating an ideal setting for indoor/outdoor entertaining. The whole project has been so perfectly executed that the new owners could move in and host a party the same day; it even comes with a fully stocked wine vault.”


From majestic entry courtyard to multiple private gardens off the bedrooms, Eight Palms embodies the ultimate in privacy — and luxury. In the master suite, expansive dual curbless showers are positioned under a large clerestory skylight, separated by floating glass walls. Four of the home’s baths have outdoor garden showers. One of the garages has been converted to a wellness center with gym, yoga studio and outdoor massage room.


While Friedman isn’t promising Restoration Hardware will launch a luxury home division anytime soon, he sees this project as much more than an upscale remodel. “Eight Palms demonstrates that our brand can deliver value that transcends just creating and selling products, as we evolve towards conceptualizing and selling spaces,” he says.
