MAIN LEVEL OF THE HOME
Entrance and Motorcourt
After accessing the gated community in Woodside, a second private electronic entry gate allows access to the property. A paved road winds down past native oaks and lush gardens to a lighted cobblestone motorcourt. Uplifting the scene are olive trees and decorative planter urns. The French provincial façade presents a warm welcome with balanced and symmetrical proportions, elaborate iron balconies and steep slate roof pitches with copper gutters and downspouts. Views of the surrounding forest unfold from the elevated stone entry porch with lantern lights as a garden provides a backdrop for a trickling stone fountain. The covered entrance shelters solid steel double front doors with glass insets.
Inside the residence, the entry parlor is filled with natural light from an arched transom over the front doors and a massive domed glass skylight set above the main staircase. Polished stone floors compliment the stunning egg-and-dart moldings. Sightlines of the lush grounds unfold through a wall of glass. The cascading staircase with custom iron banisters and rails ascends to the upper level and crystal drop wall sconces further illuminate the space.
