Have you ever dreamed of owning an one-of-a-kind luxury home in Napa without the fuss of dealing with a realtor, architect, contractor, and interior designer? Well now you can. Allow us to introduce you to MJC Development, an upscale housing creation company that recently introduced two new Napa Valley homes to the real estate market. MJC was founded in 2010 by Peter Magowan, Matthew Cook, and Andrew Johnston—three leaders in the finance, real estate, and construction communities—with Cook and Johnston overseeing the day-to-day operations.

MJC scours the Valley for the most prestigious properties. Once they’ve secured a stunning piece of land, they start from the ground up, building a custom, meticulously-crafted home. Locally sourced wood, stone, and steel are incorporated into the building and the team employs local craftspeople to create bespoke finishes and furnishings. The house is outfitted with world-class appliances and fixtures from familiar brands. Think Sub Zero refrigerators, Wolf ranges, Bosch dishwashers, Waterworks plumbing fixtures, Toto toilets, and Control 4 home automation systems.

Once the home is built, Jennifer Nagle Interior Design fills the place with interesting artwork, inviting couches, and everything in between. When the homeowners moves in, the only thing they have to bring with them is a toothbrush. The home comes complete with everything one could possibly need, from a state-of-the-art yoga studio to kitchen drawers filled with cooking utensils, silverware, and cutlery.

Each property is given a name, the two estates that were recently released to the market are Cunningham and Orchard. Both are designed for indoor-outdoor living with terraces, balconies, pools, and spectacular vineyard views. Cunningham, a contemporary farmhouse, is one of the most breathtaking properties we’ve ever seen. The home is 10,000 square feet with four bedrooms, four-and-a-half bathrooms, and a guest house with two additional bedrooms and two-and-a-half bathrooms. There is a wine cellar, library, yoga studio, outdoor kitchen with dining area and bar, heated swimming pool and spa, and two-car garage. The outdoor space is ideal for entertaining and could easily be perfect for a child’s birthday party or a milestone anniversary celebration.

Orchard, with 6,000 square feet, is a smaller property, but still with five bedrooms and five-and-half bathrooms. The home has a great room, wine cellar and wet bar, outdoor barbecue and fireplace, swimming pool and pool house with a bar and full bath, and two-car garage. All the MJC homes are meant to be an extension of the land and fit nicely into the landscape of Napa. There’s even the opportunity to make your own wine! The Cunningham house has a vineyard that is currently being managed by Steve Matthiasson.

A project of this magnitude takes MJC about two years from start to finish—Cunningham and Orchard are their fourth and fifth estates—that’s why prospective buyers should sit up and pay attention now. Another home in this unparalleled category may not be on the market for a couple of years. For Napa lovers and those looking for a second home, MJC’s exclusive estates are an investment worth considering.
