Calistoga Real Estate

Calistoga Real Estate
To simply call Calistoga "the new St. Helena" is to gloss over the multiple reasons to pick the town of Calistoga all on its own - close proximity to San Francisco (via Highway 101 through Santa Rosa), close proximity to Santa Rosa airport, golden oak studded hills with amazing palisades formations, countryside relatively unmolested from residential and winery development. We could go on and on.

People in real estate are calling Calistoga the new St. Helena because there are country property options in Calistoga that are simply unavailable or unaffordable in neighboring St. Helena. And thanks to two high end resort hotels (and another two coming) Calistoga is developing the fine dining and entertainment people expect living in the Napa Valley.

It's still possible to get beautiful country properties for just under $1.0 million. And by the time you reach $4.0 million you'll see true estate quality homes. Raw land estate home building sites are also still available, something difficult to find in other cities.

We know you'll enjoy Calistoga as much as we do.
