Idyllic Meets Luxurious in This Outdoor Entertainment-Ready Stunner in Silicon Valley

For just under $5 million, owners get access to everything from an updated pool and spa to equestrian trails and an on-site personal vineyard.

It’s not every day that you come across a home that offers not only direct access to an equestrian trail and a vineyard, but a shimmering aquamarine pool, spa and fire pit...and then some. Lucky for those in the Silicon Valley market, such a home exists.

According to its listing on See Homes in Silicon Valley, 214 Raymundo Dr. in Woodside, California “combines modern architectural design with a quintessential country setting” and overlooks vistas of “the San Francisco Peninsula, Stanford Hills and Silicon Valley lights.” The 3,970-square-foot, five-bedroom, five-bath stunner is currently on the market for just shy of $5 million dollars, but in terms of outdoor entertainment options, we can see why.

Along with Sunnyvale, Cupertino and San Jose, Silicon Valley has made a name for itself as a market rife with houses whose amenities match the imaginations of the region’s tech innovators. This Raymundo Dr. estate keeps it modern yet rooted in the rolling California countryside, extending over three acres, including one acre planted with “premium Merlot and Chardonnay.” Time your harvest just right, and you can pull off a memorable DIY Wine Party with your own locally grown vintage, sure to keep guests buzzing for ages.

Or say early evening horseback rides along the gently sloping countryside are more your speed. As mentioned, the property features trail access via bordering Huddart Park. After taking in the trail, return home and entertain your guests with a night swim in the fenced and heated pool or in-ground hot tub combined with s’mores over the fire pit. Relax before bed by taking in the stars while reliving the high points of the day nestled in the posh, poolside cabana seating, nightcap in hand. And if, at the end of a sun- and fun-filled day, a guest or two needs to stay over, this sprawling California estate also offers a one-bedroom, one-bath guest house.

Daytime entertainment abounds as well. The idyllic-meets-luxe property features a full bocce ball court and plenty of level ground for near-endless play. Oh, and did we mention the on-site treehouse and playground for younger visitors (or the particularly young at heart)? Should friends and family seek to go “off campus,” the Raymundo Drive mansion is only minutes from nearby Woodside, one of the wealthiest small towns in the U.S. and home to restaurants including the Michelin-starred Village Pub, as well as Buck’s of Woodside, the go-to place for venture capitalist investments and power lunches in the Valley.

Don’t forget, however, that few around-town locales will offer the impeccable views and dinner party potential of this Silicon Valley escape. The ample, fenced-in and finished exterior space means that a Gatsby-approved soirée could extend into the early hours, should you desire. Visible from outside, a central fireplace in each of the three bungalows surrounding the pool area serve as welcoming beacons of a warm night’s sleep following your Party for the Ages.
