Restored and Expanded Classic Woodside Estate

355 Old La Honda Rd, Woodside, CA 94062, USA
$3,995,000

Description

Experience a reprieve from the fast pace of Silicon Valley at this extensively restored and expanded home. Just minutes from Highway 280 and Sand Hill Road venture capital centers, the setting is unrivaled for privacy and tranquility on approximately one acre of fully fenced and gated level grounds. Signature design features of the era, circa 1929, are restored intact with redwood-paneled walls, antique lighting, and Douglas fir floors. Additions remain true to the era with perfectly selected wall coverings, unlacquered brass fixtures from Waterworks, and even a high-end AGA gas range. The result is a blend of rustic charm with luxurious appointments across two levels with views reaching out to the San Francisco Bay and East Bay hills. The grounds are equally enchanting combining English gardens, vast level lawn, plus a chicken coop and vegetable and fruit gardens for your own farmers market. A rare offering indeed for Silicon Valley living.

 

  • Custom electronic gates open to a brick driveway with matching walkway outlined by a vast level lawn with ample space for play and entertaining; the restored exterior is a clear representation of the 1920s style of the era

  • Ground-floor foyer has original brick flooring and painted embossed wallcovering that replicates a stamped tin pattern from the 1920s

  • Upstairs living room – a signature of the home with towering cathedral ceiling with beams and trusses, original redwood-paneled walls, and focal-point fireplace of clinker bricks; hidden features include a top-floor secret room with Juliette balcony plus a redwood-paneled wine room with sink, glass-front cabinetry, and mirrored backsplash

  • A casual dining area and family room extend from the kitchen with library storage plus wall of built-ins with integrated banquette seating; 1920s-era fireplace is outlined in Motawi tiles; an adjacent butler’s pantry features a baker’s counter with inlaid marble slab, and a separate mudroom opens to the outdoors

  • Large brick terrace, approximately 1,000 square feet, perfect for entertaining, overlooks the gardens
