170 Josselyn Lane, Woodside, California  94062

A long, gated driveway at the end of a private lane heightens the sense of seclusion that envelops this exceptional country residence and guest house. Custom built in 1999 for the current owners, the 3.38-acre property pays tribute to the classic beauty of Woodside with an ambiance that is decidedly country elegance. Stunning black oak floors, rustic wood beams, and subtle faux finishes define the warm and inviting venues for formal and everyday gatherings. At the heart of it all is a tremendous great room with chef’s kitchen, while the bedrooms are privately arranged in their own wing. Every room has direct access to the grounds where wraparound decks overlook the western hills and a sun-swept rear yard integrates a pool that blends in harmony with the natural setting. All around, heritage oaks dot the landscaping, bountiful rose gardens provide color and fragrance, and numerous trees are ready to spring forth in full bloom. This quintessential Woodside setting is located on one of its most sought-after streets, just one mile to acclaimed Woodside School and the Village plus midway between San Francisco and Silicon Valley.
