Woodside, CA 94062
This mid-century Woodside gem is designed to showcase its surrounding natural beauty through walls of glass arranged around manicured grounds and a sparkling center pool. Soaring vaulted ceilings, French doors, and skylights fill the home with abundant natural light, and wood beams and panels unify the home. The convenient single-level floor plan features an open-concept kitchen, family, and dining area that was well ahead of its time in envisioning how entertaining would evolve to be a casual, hands-on affair. At the other end of the home, the tremendous living room is designed for quintessential California indoor/outdoor living with two huge sliding glass doors that fully open the space to the pool terrace.
There are 3 bedrooms and 2 baths, plus just across the breezeway are guest quarters with a bedroom and full bath, also ideal for an office. Beyond the rose-filled, one-acre setting, the home also enjoys access to nearby hiking and biking trails affording the opportunity to make the most of its enchanting locale. Ready to move in or remodel to your exact specifications, this remarkable home enjoys a location midway between San Francisco and Silicon Valley, is convenient to both Stanford University and Sand Hill Road venture capital centers, plus has access to top-rated Portola Valley schools.
