Magnificent Woodside Estate

A treasured piece of Woodside’s history, this grand Monterey colonial takes center stage on magnificent grounds of approximately 21 acres.

Built in the late 1930s and known as Miraflores (to view flowers), the estate retains its original character and the beauty of a bygone era. Numerous luxuries have been added over the years, including a stunning master bath as part of Designer Showcase House earlier this year.

The home spans three expansive levels with grandly scaled public rooms, a tremendous kitchen, as well as a recreation/media room and fitness center.

Personal accommodations are exceptional with a total of seven bedrooms, including two amazing master suites and a full two bedroom staff apartment.

Additionally, a separate guest/caretaker’s house is privately located on the grounds.

Completing a home of this magnitude are the extraordinary grounds with everything needed for outdoor enjoyment- pool, spa, newly re-paved tennis court and vast equestrian facilities. From its elevated position, the estate also has sweeping views across the western hills and out to the Bay and Est Bay hills. All from a close-in location that puts San Francisco and Silicon Valley within easy reach- an exceptional opportunity on rare Peninsula acreage.
