The sprawling site, comprising seven residential buildings on 74 acres of land, has become the tech hub’s most expensive offering at $ 135 million.
“There may be no other property this size in the country that offers owners such an unusual combination of privacy, panoramic views of the Western Hills, and multiple living options,” said Brad Miller, one of Compass’ co-listing agents. said in a statement.
“The property is also surprisingly close to shops, restaurants and the school in Woodside, one of the richest and liveliest enclaves in the heart of Silicon Valley.”
Helen Miller, also an agent at Compass, is an agent on the listing.
The property, which is more than 23,900 square feet, is located in Woodside, California and is known as “Green Gables”. The building, built in 1911 for banker Mortimer Fleishhacker, has been in the family for five generations and, according to realtor.com, is one of the largest privately owned areas in the region.
Charles Sumner Greene and Henry Mather Greene, prominent figures of the arts and crafts movement of the early 20th century, designed the main house of the estate, which is still originally furnished in three of the bedrooms. The main house also features a common room with hand-carved furniture and large windows with great views of the Santa Cruz Mountains.
Other buildings on the site include a modernist six bedroom house from the 1930s, a “stone tea house”, a 1970s house with private pool, an estate manager’s house and two buildings from the 1860s have been updated.
The extensive grounds of the property have unique features, such as a freeform pool that is laid out around a colony of oaks and a Roman pool that is reminiscent of Roman ruins. The landscaping includes edible gardens and flower gardens, olive groves, a lily pond, and a reservoir with springs.
Green Gables has welcomed prominent guests throughout its history – a gala for the 20th anniversary of the United Nations was held here in 1965.
The list also points out the as yet unexploited potential of the accommodation for use as a vineyard, riding center or retreat for companies.
