There is something simply Californian about a Craftsman-style home. Characterized by its low-pitched gabled roofs with broad eaves, large front porches, and exposed wooden structural elements, the Craftsman unites the best of California living: elegant simplicity, a functional layout, the beauty of natural materials and an intense focus on detail and craftsmanship.

This extraordinary country residence in Woodside exudes all of the inherent charm of a classic Craftsman, both inside and out. Custom built, the 6,700-square-foot home is introduced by a wraparound front porch that doubles as an outdoor living room. Flawless details unfold inside with Brazilian cherry wood floors, fine wood millwork and perfectly selected stone finishes and lighting that recall the authentic Craftsman style. Interior spaces have been thoughtfully designed for comfortable family living and entertaining — including a voluminous great room, separate play room or media room, plus office and library, as well as a tucked-away billiards room adjacent to the wine cellar. Featuring four family bedrooms, the home encompasses a peaceful master suite with its own gym. Every bedroom opens to the outdoors.

Equally awe-inspiring is the setting. Nestled on approximately two acres, the stunning property is punctuated by a lovely Pinot Noir vineyard, vast stretches of lawn, and the privacy afforded by Wunderlich Park. An exceptional Woodside location, midway between San Francisco and Silicon Valley with access to the acclaimed Woodside School, makes this very special property a rare gem worthy of a visit.

Priced at $8,495,000, this home is listed by Erika Demma of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Woodside.
