Known as one of Woodside’s signature estate properties, the remarkable Hilltop House has been masterfully restored over the years retaining the integrity of the circa 1935 French chateau originally designed by Gardner Dailey. Presiding on 3.4 acres, surrounded by manicured lawns and lush gardens, Hilltop House is a tranquil oasis spanning more than 10,600 square feet. A classic turret and 75-foot-long gallery begin the sense of joie de vivre. The public rooms represent the romance and artisanship of the era, evidenced by pediments and elaborate millwork, with an emphasis on natural light and space for display of fine art. The palatial dimensions comprise 8 bedroom suites, including a sumptuous master suite plus two staff quarters. The kitchen and bathrooms are beautifully appointed, an old-fashioned porte cochere recalls the home’s early heritage, and a pool and tennis court add resort-inspired amenities. With a wonderful sense of country seclusion, yet just blocks to the Woodside Village, this legendary property is a world-class destination to call home.
