Few locales in the nation can boast a one horse for every five residents, but such is the claim of Woodside. Both the residents and the city government are attuned to preserving the rustic nature and charming ambiance of their small town in spite of its proximity to pulsating cosmopolitan centers like Palo Alto, San Jose, and San Francisco. Just 30 miles south of San Francisco, Woodside is more than an equestrian’s dream.
The town offers a tranquil residential retreat with a rural flavor that holds appeal for young professionals, retirees, and families. Beautiful homes of varied architectural styles and price ranges combine with a scattering of local retail and service establishments for a convenient yet secluded lifestyle. Sweeping lawns and rolling pastures are often graced by winding roads lined with large eucalyptus, redwood, and oak trees. Nestled against the eastern slopes of the Santa Cruz Mountains, Woodside offers country living at its finest in close proximity to major transportation arteries and the world-class amenities of San Francisco.
