Listing of the Day
Location:, Woodside, California
Price: $12.395 million
The commute to and from Silicon Valley is infamously difficult, but imagine how sweet life could be if you could not only live about six minutes away from Sandhill Road, where all the biggest venture capital firms call home, and just a dozen or so miles from the headquarter campuses in Menlo Park. Such would be the paradise of inhabiting this home.
Not to mention the commute itself: “Driving home,” said listing agent Judy Citron, “you feel like you’re in Muir Woods, or the South of France.”
The property itself spans 7.7 acres of private manicured grounds, including a pool and poolhouse, several meditation spots, a fitness room, a guest house, several gardens, and a newly up-and-running Pinot Noir vineyard with over 400 plants (the first harvest was this year!).
And the house, a mid-century modern masterpiece, first built in 1958, was recently renovated to highlight its original charm, but include all the modern updates of a true tech-elite lifestyle.
“User-friendly” is probably the best way to describe its perfect streamlining of function and form. “Everything just glides,” Ms. Citron said. “The grounds, the house—everything is so manicured and flows in such a logical way. It’s absolutely breathtaking.” The renovation not only restored the home’s beauty, but its infrastructure as well: there’s an extensive new draining system that withstood the torrential rains of last winter, “which really speaks to the integrity and the future of the home.”
As to the panoramic views of the Bay Area: “You can see Stanford’s Hoover Tower, rolling hills, the Bay, all the way across the Bay—it just goes on and on. Because the house sits in its own microclimate, you can see the fog roll in toward the coast without obstructing the view. It looks like cotton candy—even on a rainy day you can see for miles—because the home is perched on a mountain that allows you to sit above the weather changes. It has its own little cove,” Ms. Citron said.
All this, and so close to town? “It’s almost unheard of in the Bay Area,” Ms. Citron said. “It’s jaw-dropping.”
The main house has four bedrooms, three full bathrooms, and one partial bathroom. It has two full kitchens. The guesthouse has one bedroom and one bathroom, along with living and dining rooms. The property includes a pool house with a full kitchen and fireplace, along with two changing rooms and one full bathroom. Total square footage: 7,272 square feet.
The main house includes two full kitchens and a wine room. There’s also a detached exercise studio with a Pilates area. The seven-plus acres of land feature a round pool, a patio, a Swiss Grill outdoor kitchen, a fire pit, a tennis complex, lighted brick pathways, an outdoor sound system, rose gardens, upper gardens, a motor court, and a Pinot Noir vineyard with over 400 plants.
Woodside is a quiet Bay Area town known for its beautiful homes and excellent schools. The home is located just six minutes from all the venture capital firms on Sand Hill Road, and is a short commute to Google, Facebook, and Apple.
