Minutes from quaint Woodside restaurants and shops, Woodhaven stands in distinction, built to exacting standards and grand dimensions, nestled in a magical secluded glen beside 1,000 acres of protected parkland.
Midway between the sophistication of San Francisco and the vibrancy of Silicon Valley, Woodside is just minutes from Stanford University, San Francisco and San Jose International Airports offering the rare opportunity to live both amidst the quiet serenity of nature, and a short trip to the amenities and lifestyle of surrounding urban communities and top schools.
Architect Walter Chapman created Woodhaven Manor to accommodate 12,000 square feet in the main residence, a 1,000 square foot guest house, and a 1,200 square foot carriage house on its 3.44 acre lot. The main residence has 25 rooms comprising 4 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, a 12,000 bottle capacity wine cellar, 15-seat media room, and high tech home management system. Upon entering, the most striking feature is a three-story light-filled glass enclosed rotunda. The library, formal dining room, professional class kitchen, and living rooms extend from the rotunda in perfect symmetry on the first floor while the elegant bedroom suites follow pattern on the second floor. Amazing attention to detail is evident in each element of fit and finish with remarkable wood and stonework evident throughout. With current city limits of 8,000 square feet for homes built on 20 acres, the 12,000 square foot size of Woodhaven seems enormous. Yet the masterful design embraces one with a warm and welcoming atmosphere. A perfect venue for entertaining and large events, it retains the cozy warmth of home when social gatherings are over.
This marvelous home is the jewel in a crown formed of remarkable, award-winning gardens and landscape. The seclusion and beauty of the grounds perfect the sense of place, graced by centuries old oaks and meticulously designed gardens in a graceful topography. The large pool steals the show with its elegant fountains.
A magnificent home of this size cannot be replicated under current building size restrictions. For more information or to arrange a showing, contact listing agents.
