Even while futuristic technologies are being developed across Silicon Valley, Green Gables remains an enduring connection to a pioneering California of long ago. It’s a bridge between then and now, a property steeped in Bay Area lore, created by a prominent San Francisco entrepreneur and sustained by generations of his family.  It bears the stamp of three blue-ribbon architects and an influential interior designer.  In 1931, the historian James Truslow Adams defined the American Dream as "...that dream of a land in which life should be better and richer and fuller, for everyone, with opportunity for each according to ability or achievement." As an example of that dream, Green Gables is as fine as it gets. 

 

Where the world gathers to change the world.

 

From the HP garage to the Apple Mothership, there has always been an important connection between real estate and innovation in Silicon Valley and the San Francisco Bay Area.

Titans of industry call it home while many of the world’s dreamers aspire to live here. Green Gables represents a one of a kind opportunity to acquire the best.

The Next Chapter

Green Gables' century-long commitment to natural, sustainable beauty, philanthropy, and the bonds of family have set the stage for the next chapter in an enduring legacy. Whether the mark you make here is personal or global, it will unquestionably be significant.

Green Gables offers an exclusive setting for you to entertain, retreat, strategize, socialize, and exercise.  As you travel up the long driveway with its low, fieldstone walls, curving through a park-like, private forest, your senses come alive. A symphony of crickets, frogs, and bluebirds replaces the noise of traffic; the spicy scent of eucalyptus fills the air. When you take in your first view of the main residence, you feel returned to a simpler, yet thoughtful time. Green Gables reminds us that there is still a haven in our overscheduled modern world to relax and feel safe.

Green Gables is the optimal location for a family compound or a discrete corporate retreat.  Here is the chance to establish an ancestral heirloom on the grandest of scales: a completely private, small-town neighborhood -- directly adjacent to one of the most celebrated areas in the world.  This is a place to make extraordinary, enduring memories for generations to come.  The exceptional experience of Green Gables is unrivaled, perhaps anywhere else in the world.

Green Gables is ready for its next chapter.  Will that be one of innovation, corporate excellence, artistry, equestrian delight, vineyards and wines, or simply familial peace and joy?"
