In California’s Napa Valley, the French country-style compound of Steven Bochco — the late TV producer behind “L.A. Law” and “NYPD Blue” — has quietly surfaced for sale at $8.5 million.
The estate, which is currently owned by Bochco’s widow, Dayna, spans 47 acres in the western hills of Oakville. It’s being shopped around off-market and includes a European-style main home, guesthouse and olive grove among expansive vistas and rolling vineyards.
Manicured gardens approach the ivy-covered haunt complete with three bedrooms and a handful of formal living spaces in 4,600 square feet. Everything is light inside, from the tan walls to the tile floors to the white coffered ceilings in the indoor-outdoor dining room.
Other highlights include a voluminous great room, center-island kitchen, library and cozy lounge. Upstairs, one of the bedrooms expands to a Juliet balcony overlooking the hilly landscape.
The backyard is a space all its own. Dotted with terraces, dining areas and small lawns, it expands to a flagstone patio with a swimming pool and spa.
Bochco, who died in 2018 at 74, won Emmys for “Hill Street Blues,” “L.A. Law” and “NYPD Blue,” which ran for 12 seasons on ABC.
