The location of this estate is beyond prime. Woodside, with its mountainous and forested beauty, offers easy access to the Silicon Valley, and is already well known for claiming some of the most expensive real estate in the country. But even in such an enclave, there is still a hierarchy, and this estate sits at the top. Its acreage spreads over a sizable section of the area’s “Billionaires’ Row.” Indeed, Larry Ellison’s home is across the street.

This is a true “estate,” a study in over-the-top opulence. The main residence offers five beds and eight bathrooms; there is also a detached fitness center, hair salon and massage room; a separate executive office and conference center; and a two bedroom-suite guest house with a full kitchen.

Local real estate market followers are well aware of the increase in demand for luxury property: in fact, SFGATE dubbed 2021 the year of the luxury home, noting the striking uptick in prices as well as the number of high-end homes sold in the San Francisco Bay Area.

A 2021 report released by Compass confirms this. The Ultra-Luxury Real Estate Report compared sales activity of homes priced at $10M and above from 2020 and 2021 in 30 markets across the country including Tahoe and the San Francisco Bay Area. The data compiled points to shocking year-over-year gains in this already shockingly high-end of the market.
