The Hagedorn Residence & Villa Vallecito
Vineyards and Winery, Vallecito
Alan and Ghee Hagedorn developed a scenic parcel of 30 acres to create a Guadalajara-style hacienda. The site provides breathtakng views of Lake New Melones and extensive vineyards. Ghee intended her home to be a place for luxury, fun and celebration, solace and introspection, or quiet socializing. Numbers of garden rooms provide the settings for many moods and activities, all with a sense of beckoning enjoyment.
The drawing shows the over all concept for the main living and venue area atop a stretegic ridgeline to maximize the panorama. Despite being a work in progress and planting simplications from the original design, this estate might be considered Ronald Kirk's signature residential landscape.
