Woodside, the tony enclave beloved by billionaire Silicon Valley homeowners like Oracle Corp. chief Larry Ellison, is known for its landmark country mansions and equestrian estates. It’s lesser known for its collection of contemporary residences—but this rare three-acre architectural from Helen and Brad Miller of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Woodside offers a new vision of the Woodside lifestyle.

A tour of the property (if you could ever be so lucky) offers all the evidence you need. You’ll enter through a private entrance gate, where you’ll find a rich tapestry of immaculately kept grasses, heritage oaks, redwoods and rose gardens. A museum-inspired courtyard ushers you in the front door for your first impression: the atrium’s 30-foot ceilings and sweeping hillside views.

Set in a quiet private sanctuary in a prestigious Woodside corridor, the “visually stunning” home beckons with “incredible panoramic views of Western Hills” and wide open space, says Brad Miller.

“It’s been extensively upgraded by the current owners to create a showcase of indoor/outdoor design,” he adds.

The home, which spans 7,555 square feet and has four bedrooms, has been thoughtfully designed to efficiently flow from the foyer to the living room with high-ceilings and on to the dining room and an upgraded kitchen, touched with gorgeous Calacutta marble counter tops.  The kitchen also serves as the backdrop to the property’s gardens.

The North Wing was intended for entertaining—including a caterer’s kitchen, family room with walls large enough to accommodate artwork or a theater screen. In the West Wing, there’s a private downstairs bedroom and ensuite bath, a high-speed broadband office and finally, the oasis of a master suite, featuring two baths and a private garden.

The theme of entertaining continues outdoors, of course, with a multi-tiered pool and entertaining area and a large 2,140 square-foot detached structure with a 4-car garage and unfinished loft space. “It has wonderful guest house development potential,” says Miller.

Offering easy access to Sand Hill Road and I-280, this state-of-the-art contemporary presents a prime opportunity to be near business centers in Silicon Valley—yet still feel the protection of total privacy. At $13,950,000, it offers all of the splendors of Woodside living in a thoroughly modern design.

1015 Mountain Home Road is offered for $13,950,000 by Helen and Brad Miller of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, Woodside.
