Woodside offers a secluded location with access to the Peninsula’s major business, recreational, and cultural centers. Residents value the town’s privacy, nature, large parcels of land, and diverse architecture — including many uniquely crafted estate homes tucked within the countryside. Home to the area’s most prosperous families during the 1800s, Woodside maintains its history and rural atmosphere with a small business district and quaint downtown that now attracts Silicon Valley movers and shakers, along with famed musicians and artists.
The Woodside Elementary School District is highly regarded. The local community of Woodside is near several prestigious private schools including Sacred Heart Schools, Menlo School and Phillip Brooks.
