Silicon Valley Estate from 1911
Green Gables 74-acre Estate, has remained intact since its inception in 1911. The property is truly an extraordinary estate. The combination of man's and nature's best are brilliantly on display throughout this 74-acre Woodside, California, property which has remained intact since its inception in 1911. The creation of Mortimer Fleishhacker, banker and founder of Anglo California Bank and the Great Western Power Company, at the heart of Green Gables rests its magnificent main residence and gardens that remain home to this day for the Fleishhacker family.
The location of this property at the center of Silicon Valley, its size, and its provenance further distinguish Green Gables as a truly unique offering. Its 74-acre expanse is virtually unrivaled in the region, and the estate offers total privacy and natural beauty, yet is only 20 minutes from San Francisco International Airport while Stanford University is just ten minutes away. Woodside itself is Silicon Valley's wealthiest and most prestigious enclave and is among the oldest settlements on the San Francisco Peninsula.
