Incredible hilltop views of Western Hills on one side and Jasper Ridge Preserve on the other in this one-of-a-kind centrally-located private retreat surprisingly close to it all!

What the seller loves about this home
It can be summed up in 4 words - Scenic. Secluded. Private. Central. We love the quiet, serenity and beauty of our own private sanctuary in Central Woodside. Adjacent to the 1,189-acre Jasper Ridge Biological Preserve, our stunning 6-acre estate sits on top of a knoll and offers breathtaking views of the Western Hills, northern vistas and Jasper Ridge. We have amazing wildlife and love waking up to the songs of the vast numbers of birds. The surrounding gardens provide color year-round and include many native plants, a lavender garden, mint, rosemary, thyme, several Princess Flower plants, Camelias, Azaleas, oodles of Daffodils in the Spring, a magnificent Japanese Maple Tree, and a wide range of heritage trees. The location is ideal - very close to Interstate 280, VC Hill, Stanford and surrounding towns, San Francisco and Silicon Valley. The 4 BR / 4.5 BA home combines the craftsmanship from its roots as a hunting lodge/retreat with the functionality and style brought through recent upgrades. This home has many features you could not build in a home today like a massive fireplace, huge windows and glass doors. I love that there are spectaculars views from every room including the offices, each bedroom, the kitchen, the dining room, etc. I love working from home because if the magnificent views in the upstairs office. The views from the master bedroom look out into the gardens and through the beautiful climbing Wisteria onto the Western Hills. We love sitting on the deck sipping sundowners gazing at the sunset and entertaining dinner guests on the spacious front porch. 'Being home' is the best part of our day!
