A Renovated Woodside Ranchburger’s Shy Second Story

Instead of razing this ranch-style home, the new owner raised the roof, adding a heap of space on the second floor and reworking the original floor plan downstairs. Located in Woodside, near Longfellow Elementary School, the 1957 home morphed via a to-the-studs renovation and addition following its purchase in 2009 for $315,000. Now weighing in at 3,621 sq. ft., the new listing’s asking price is a much heftier $675,000.


The entryway (above) is open to the dining room, which, like the front door, faces west. Also off the entryway — and behind a set of glass-panel doors — is a study:

The new stairwell, located off the kitchen and den, rises beneath a vaulted ceiling decorated with a wooden beam:

The French doors open to a deck on the side of the home:

Beyond the den windows: the 8,955-sq.-ft. lot’s back yard:

In the kitchen, which spans the centuries with antiqued cabinetry and modern appliances, there’s a farmhouse-style copper sink:

The master bedroom suite is downstairs:

The master bathroom is one of 4 full bathrooms in the home:

Sadly, the listing includes no glimpses of the second floor interior, but it describes the space as including a “media room, game room, and kid’s computer room.”  And there’s this view of the elevation:

  • What a waste of money for what will eventually be a tear-down.

    And who wants to enter a house into the dining room?

  • Photos and commentary don’t seem to match?

  • apparently they thought lipo and implants were more important than fixing the teeth and face lift. is it just me or is the house fundamentally ugly from the face?

  • Generally speaking, the commentary is above the referenced photo.

    And I agree, the house face is rather ho hum. But, they could only do so much with the outside. Without the bang, the bucks don’t matter so much.

  • Oh, that sink. Is so ugly.
