Apart from the main house, Green Gables is home to a tennis court, three swimming pools and six other dwellings, each of which has given its own privacy and space among the natural surroundings. As another point of historic interest, one of these smaller properties is a home that was designed by renowned Modernist architect William Wurster in the 1930s.
A mixture of outdoor spaces can be found at Green Gables, including beautiful formal gardens that surround the main residence, expansive orchards and natural woodlands filled with shrubs and flowers native to California. The estate also has its own large flower and vegetable garden – think dahlias and roses, herbs, peppers and tomatoes – and its own sprawling reservoir that can serve the estate’s irrigation needs, giving owners the option of becoming more self-sufficient.

At 74 acres, Green Gables’ land size is almost unrivaled in the Silicon Valley region and allows for total privacy and seclusion within a beautiful landscape. At the same time, a range of local amenities are easily accessible; Woodside is home to the famous Buck’s of Woodside restaurant and a Michelin-starred pub. San Francisco International Airport is only a 20-minute drive away, Sanford University is ten minutes distant, and slightly further afield is the well-known Half Moon Bay, a 25-minute drive away through some beautiful coastal scenery.
