Last weekend my family and I took a visiting relative to see some sights in the area, including to Filoli in Woodside. If you have never visited this grand & gracious estate on the peninsula, it’s something to put on your “must see” list.
The house is 36,000 square feet (thirty six thousand sq. ft.!), ten times larger than a “big” home. The house sits upon approximatey 650 acres, most of it in its natural state but more than a dozen acres beautifully landscaped with lawns, flowers, roses, bushes, trees, ponds and a pool.
Please enjoy some photos of our time at Filoli last weekend. Some of these were taken by me, but most were shot by my daughter, Clair Handy (used by permission, of course!).
The Filoli Center is located at 86 Cañada Road Woodside, CA 94062
Filoli is open Tuesday through Sunday for self-guided tours (docent led tours are Tues through Saturday). All donations, admissions, membership etc. go to preserving Filoli Center. For more information, please visit the Filoli website: http://www.filoli.org/
