Positioned on approximately 3 park-like flat acres surrounded by majestic Redwoods, Oaks and a live creek is this custom home was built in 2006 and reimagined in 2016 with a stunning South Pacific contemporary feel. The compound evokes a cool Sierra Nevada meets a modern Fiji Islands resort feel.
The gated and fenced estate includes approximately 6,360 total square feet in the Main and Guest house under roof consisting of the main house with approx. 4860 sq.ft. of contemporary living space with 3-4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths and an approx.1500+ sq.ft. 2 bedroom guest home. An over 3000 sq.ft. 10 stall barn, a separate 4 stall barn, a 3 car garage next to the caretaker workshop. Other structures include 2 large sheds, greenhouse, large equipment storage area for the included work vehicles and tractor. The centerpiece of the grounds is perfect for a Short Dressage Arena (90 X 180 s/ft) or for riding and training. There are two courtyards with plenty of room to park dozens of cars. The main courtyard provides a stately arrival for family and guests while the rear courtyard is optimal for service and the equestrian facility.
A not small allure of the estate is a fully-functioning 10-horse barn located on the side/rear of the property. This secluded facility is softly partitioned from the main house by lush foliage, mature Redwoods and easy accessibility directly from the pool deck. There is parking for multiple trailers, trucks, and additional parking for guest vehicles. The barn was custom built and has an array of solar panels. It has ten 12’ X 14’ stalls with Dutch Doors leading out to large paddocks. The stalls have Stable Comfort Padded rubber mats and grills so that the horses can see each other from two sides. There is a stall set up as a wash stall and there is also a laundry facility. All the stalls are fully fenced in with Wood Guard. Each Stall has Automatic Waterers which are metered to monitor each horse’s water intake. There is a 12’ x 14’ tack room that also has a full large capacity washer and dryer. The adjacent storage area is perfect for grain and bales of hay. There is a spacious aisleway that is set up with safety cross ties to tack several horses at the same time.
Most importantly there is an excellent Short Dressage Arena (fencing removed) that can be used for training purposes. The arena is 115 feet long and about 66 feet wide (20 meters). The entire arena can be fully fenced in again. There is also a viewing platform with koi pond that will accommodate proud spectators comfortably as it has access to a fully functional kitchen.
The arena has a fully automatic sprinkler system (set up as 3 integrated zones). There are also two spacious grassy turnouts, each with an automatic waterer that can be interconnected if desired to create a single long turnout.
An impressive feature of this arena is that even after several days of significant rains, the water drains out almost completely within a couple of hours and the arena can be used for riding or turnout. At the end of the arena there is an area set up for parking.
There is mature landscaping around the entire arena that provides privacy and creates a peaceful setting for enjoying horseback riding. The barn has easy access to the riding trails which are part of the Woodside equestrian system.
There is covered space set up for effective manure management, providing for a clean and safe riding experience.
