Woodside Neighborhoods

Original post made on Dec 12, 2013

For more than 100 years, beginning in the 1830s, the area now called Woodside was gradually developed, first as sawmills that supplied redwood to build San Francisco, later as farms, small cattle ranches and vineyards.

This lovely small town feeling we have here in Woodside is like no other I know of. Here we can virtually ride our horses anywhere we want to and all the people we rider's come across respect that and in fact love it. It give people who are not familiar with horses the opportunity to touch and feel this most bold yet sweet animal. And those who are familiar with horses get to see each others horses. So we get to "show" our most prize possession. I adore our little Hamlet and I've loved riding and showing my Jordgee Girl, "The Arabian Princess" as she gotten to be known as in our Woodside.

from the articles -

"Residents love their horses, and aren't afraid to show it. Moreover, they love where they live because the animals are tolerated and even encouraged."

Wish I had lived there rather than here back when I had a string of horses and taught riding lessons. But, alas, for my high tech hubby, it was "too far north".

That said, you get so very much more for your money living in Woodside, as far as real estate goes, BUT the schools are not so hot, especially Woodside High and Sequoia High. I am sure that's why so very many people in Woodside send their kids to private schools instead. Which then does not make Woodside such a great real estate value in the big picture of hidden expenses
