700 Kings Mountain Road

Originally marketed by Sotheby’s for $47.5 million in 2012, the Woodside estate dubbed “Woodhaven Manor,” which was built in 1988 and includes a 12,000-square-foot main home, a 1,200-square-foot carriage house and a 1,000-square-foot guest house on over 3 acres of land at 700 Kings Mountain Road, was listed for $28.888 million early last year.

Relisted for $23.988 million in February, the manor has just been relisted anew without an address for $21.8 million, or 54 percent below the original asking price.

The main home’s octagonal theme extends from the three-story rotunda, to the kitchen, to the true wine cellar for 12,000 bottles below.

And the manor’s 100-foot lap pool is punctuated by fountains and a gazebo.

    Needs lots of vines to cover the outside and the peach paint is so…1986…

    [Editor’s Note: Close, it was built in 1988 (since added above).]

      Come on, everybody knows that 1988 had slightly more tangerine shade of peach than 1986.

    Killer wine den. Kitchen looks to have plenty of sinks, abundant stoves, an oversupply of refrigerators and…. just 2 ovens? They hate baking or what??

      Multiple fridges, sinks, and ovens: maybe this is an ultra-kosher kitchen? In any case expect the next buyer to tear out that entire kitchen and redo.

      Lot is 3.4 acres. That’s gotta put a floor on the value of this place.

    Just also noticed no hood for the stove(s) and a weird fan like thingy above the lone old oven structure. Kitchen apparently could use a once over.

    Bloat and excess.

    If they drop it another 25% I’ll take two.

    Was looking at the median listing / median sales numbers on the site. Surely these are not apples-apples and are measuring two different sets of houses. As in measuring listing and sales events for the same moving timeframe:

    Area – Median Listing – Median Sales
    Skywood Acres – $1,110,000 – $3,850,000
    Portola Park – $39,500,000 – $3,800,000

    The black urinal really did it for me. Nothing says luxury like a quiet pee, though having to stand sure is plebeian.

    Wait, back up. Anyone see the coke scale in the “workshop?” It all makes sense now.

    Is that a lap pool or just a fountain? It doesn’t look deep enough to swim in and that protruding jet at the end would make for one helluva turn.

    Looks like a super sized Mc Mansion. Not totally awful, but at this price point I would expect much better.

    This is a tough one. Buyers at this price point would want to gut pretty much the entire thing and there are some floor plan quirks (the octagonal theme for example). Kings Mountain is not bad per say but is not the prime location for Woodside either.

    Compare this to 231 Winding Way that sold for $22M. Slightly smaller total square footage but brand new, 2.8 acres, architecturally significant with excellent finishes and by a famous architect, and in A+ Woodside.

    Even at $22M, no buyer would pick Kings Mountain over Winding. This one still has a ways to go before they get the price right.

    Nobody wants to touch anything that would need work that would require going through Woodside planning, especially at this price point.

    UPDATE: The list price for 700 Kings Mountain Road has just been reduced another $2 million and they’re now asking $19.8 million for the manor, or roughly 42 percent of the price at which it was being marketed back in 2012.
