About 265 Portola State Park Road

Situated on top of a wooded knoll overlooking Portola State Park, this compound offers both impressive privacy and a commanding view overlooking the park and to the southeast up to the top of the ridge, which gives inspiring sunrise views from the kitchen window with your morning coffee. The daytime soundtrack is Hummingbirds, woodpeckers, chipmunks, deer, partridges, rabbits, while your evening accompaniment is owls calling as the redwood forest quiets down for the night. The location, availability of high-speed internet access and features of this property make it an option both as a full time home, or a weekend escape from Silicon Valley. Woodside, Palo Alto and Los Altos are all within 30 minutes on lightly traveled roads. The property is made of up four parcels totaling 11.92 acres (per Assessor). Of that approximately 4 acres is fenced with four foot or taller deer fencing and an electric gate across the driveway. The 2720 square foot (per Assessor) main house was built in 1970 by the previous owner, and the quality of materials and workmanship is evident throughout the property. A foyer leads into an impressive living room with vaulted beamed ceilings and a stairway at either end. One leads to the two upstairs bedrooms, the other a spiral stairway to a loft overlooking the living room and a large window with treetop views. Below the loft is an office with a view overlooking Portola State Park. The spacious kitchen was added in 2008 with cabinets made of locally reclaimed wood, Subzero refrigerators, a custom 58 Lacanche French range, custom hammered copper hood, concrete and granite counters, a huge double island with a prep sink, and picture windows with canyon views. A two room suite with a sunroom and laundry room complete the first floor. Upstairs a primary suite and an additional bedroom provide for another great home office setup. A guest house with a kitchenette and full bath is located on the circular driveway, close enough to the house, but far enough for privacy. Next to that a converted barn, now a workshop with office has plenty of room for storage and hobbies. A two car garage has an additional covered parking spot on the right. Behind the garage is a shared water tank and a hydrant with hoses is in the middle of the circular driveway, convenient to all the structures. If farming is your thing, a large chicken coop and henhouse is just downhill from the house at the fence line, and housing and pens for goats sits beyond that. Don’t forget the treehouse! This is unlike most and has power and aluminum framed windows. A perfect hiding place in the trees, this will be a little easter egg for visitors.
