6 Quail Meadows Drive

On the market for $20 million in 2014, the ‘one-of-a-kind’ Woodside home at 6 Quail Meadows Drive was formally listed for $17.5 million early last year.

Withdrawn from the MLS in June and re-listed for $13.995 million in September, with ‘one’ day on the market and no reductions according to the official industry stats, the asking price for the 8,660-square-foot home with teak ceilings that reach 35-feet in height has just been reduced to an even $10 million.

    $10M seems to be dirt value so it will probably sell for over. Sadly if it does sell for dirt value the new owner might mow this nicely designed (albeit a little dated, but what design doesn’t age?) down and replace it with a standard tasteless faux Tuscan behemoth.

      I’ve never looked at Filoli and said to myself: “Gee, that design sure is dated.”

    You could, without irony, park a DeLorean here.

    This isn’t the real “Silicon Valley.”

    It was overpriced to begin with.

    The remodel was left unfinished.

    Not much of a view.

    The staging was sloppy.

    The yard is too small.

    There’s no parking.

    The photographer didn’t get the right angles.

    There’s too much crime in the neighborhood.

    It’s haunted.

    (what did I forget?}

      Flagstone planter boxes do not belong inside anyone’s home (I speak from experience).

      Not enough greenery. The dearth of trees.

        It’s way too close to 280 and the carcinogenic air it creates.

        There are better homes nearby that cost less.

      oh, yeah:

      It was the wrong time of year.

      It was the weather.

    Woodside is the unfriendliest community for property owners who want to rebuild or remodel or make any improvements to their properties. Woodside’s Architectural Site Review Board (ASRB) is a nightmare. Woodside’s Planning Commissioners are irrational at best . If the planning commission can’t find any excuse in the Municipal Code to block a project, they turn down projects based on imaginary assumptions. It is not uncommon to see Planning staff roll their eyes when commissioners make irrational comments to make up an excuse to turn down projects.
