If you’re able to pay $85 Million, you can buy Historic Silicon Valley Flood Estate, one of the largest remaining historic estates in the Peninsula. Never before on the market, this 9,000-square Colonial-style home on almost 92 acres of glorious land, has been in the same family since it was built in 1941.
Situated on 331 Green Rd, Woodside, California, this one of the most expensive homes in Silicon Valley comprising of nine bedrooms, 8½ bathrooms, 2 lakes, a pool, a tennis court, a Thomas Church-designed garden, vineyard and a three-stall barn. Additionaly, there is also a two-bedroom gatehouse and two-bedroom caretaker’s house with its own garden, and several old barns.
The land was bought in 1939, while the house was built in 1941 for James Flood, grandson of mega-wealthy Comstock legend James Clair Flood, and his wife Elizabeth Dresser Flood, who owned it, until her death in April, 2011, at the age of 94. Her death is actually the reason for selling the house, according to the Floods’ eldest daughter, Judy Flood Wilbur. ‘It’s the end of an era,’ she said. The Floods’ eldest son, James Flood, estimates that his parents spent $100,000 on the land and the building of the main house. But know, after 71 years, the house has an estimated price of $85 Million.
