The Finery of Filoli Estate
If the Filoli Historic House & Garden looks familiar, count yourself among the fans of Dallas, the 80s television soap opera. With its Dallas days behind it, today the Filoli Estate is a popular Menlo Park area attraction and a slice of living history. Located in nearby Woodside, the Filoli Estate sits on 654 acres anchored by a Georgian country house and an exquisite English Renaissance garden. Considered one of the finest remaining country estates of the early 20th century, the estate's 16 acres of gardens are world-renowned, both for their design and the horticultural practices to which they adhere. The elegant home is filled with 17th and 18th-century English antiques. Don't miss a chance to see the butler's pantry, kitchen, wood-paneled library, and ballroom, an exquisite backdrop for five murals of San Francisco artist Ernest Peixotto.
