Location: Woodside, Calif.
Price: $19,950,000
The Skinny: The scorching-hot Silicon Valley real estate market has produced another blockbuster listing with this home in tony Woodside, an extremely high-priced community that has been home to tech giants like Larry Ellison and the late (but still somehow ever present) Steve Jobs over the years. The design by noted San Francisco architect Sandy Walker—who has designed homes up and down the Peninsula and whose work has been featured numerous times in Architectural Digest—is 1980s-era California Contemporary to its core. Almost 35 years later, it still works pretty well, with a pleasing open flow and airy, light-filled rooms. Exposed wooden beams contrast nicely with the light colors of the ceilings, which are pierced by numerous skylights. Floor-to-ceiling windows and atrium-like common rooms give the interiors an added sense of space, and the design reaches its logical culmination with a glass-enclosed shower and bath. The 10,000-square-foot home, which is owned by mutual fundie Harry Hagey, is asking $19.95M.
