SETTING: Angwin is a residential and viticultural community of about 3,000 residents in Napa County. This house is on more than 15 densely wooded acres on Howell Mountain. The mountain is home to an ever-growing number of wineries, including Ladera, Outpost and O’Shaughnessy. The area is dotted with state parks crisscrossed by hiking and biking trails.

INDOORS: The contemporary is divided into two tower-like wings, separated by a concrete courtyard. The first wing was built in 1993; the second in 2008, at which point the original wing was extensively renovated. Both are clad with stucco and corrugated metal and have walls of glass overlooking woods. The house was designed by Batter Kay Associates, a firm that specializes in contemporary architecture.
