Woodside Residence

Woodside, Ca

The design of this residence, located on a wooded four-acre parcel, was based on the owners’ desire to have their home “look like it had always been on the site and still look that way in 100 years.” BAR’s design of the two-story home takes full advantage of natural light, ventilation, and verdant views to create a bright and airy living space with exterior terraces that open to the majestic landscape. The cedar shingled exterior, with stone base, painted wood trim, and copper gutters, pays homage to the owners’ east coast origins and fulfills their wish for a home that would appear classic and timeless. Materials from their previous homes are integrated into the design, including beams from a family barn in upstate New York, brick from a former California residence, and mango wood from Maui, their second home. A sophisticated wine cellar, detached poet’s studio, and detached garage complete this 9,400 gsf 3-bedroom residence in which the owners present lifestyle and past memories converge in a timeless and classic home.
