Real Estate Details
Originally a summer cottage, this home in Woodside Glens has been updated and expanded with newer kitchen, baths, master suite and foundation retrofit while still retaining vintage design elements like the sleeping porch and wall of windows overlooking the yard.
This home offers a rare combination of convenient access to downtown Woodside and Woodside Elementary School, and hiking trails in the Joan Olson Open Space. With the recent updates to both cosmetics and infrastructure, this home is really turn key.
The home is set back off of Glenwood Avenue, with an oversized two car garage and flat area of artificial turf. Cross the whimsical bridge across the seasonal creek and a quick trip up the vintage stone steps brings you to the lower entrance. The house can also be accessed from Otis Avenue via a “secret gate”.
Inside, walls of windows overlook the yard and flood the interior with filtered sunlight shining through a canopy of oak trees. In the kitchen, a large sliding door to a private patio and skylights with shades allow one to adjust the environment from sunny to shade to suit the occasion.
Stairs from the living room lead to a private master retreat. Completed in 2017, the renovated master suite included a foundation and seismic retrofit. Partially below grade, this suite is naturally insulated, keeping temps cool in summer and warm in winter. It is also quieter than the proverbial mouse. The top quality appointments in the master bath and imported stone floors make this a luxurious sanctuary.
