Woodsy Estate in a Park-Like Setting High Above Silicon Valley

Location: Woodside, California

Price: $7,975,000

Located on an isolated hilltop, surrounded by woods, and set on 12 private acres, this estate may seem an unlikely find so close to California's tech-heavy Silicon Valley. The 10,000-square-foot five-bedroom main house is coupled with a stone patio, swimming pool, a two-bed guest house, a professional recording studio, a six-car garage, and a 3,000-bottle wine cellar to create one spectacular estate. Some of the interior color choices leave a little to be desired -- if post-modernism doesn't come back into vogue -- but a couple buckets of paint isn't much to tack on to the almost $8,000,000 asking price.
