The Finery of Filoli Estate
If the Filoli Estate looks familiar, count yourself among the fans of Dallas, the 80s television soap opera. Its Dallas days behind it, today Filoli Estate, a popular Menlo Park area attraction, is a slice of living history. Located in nearby Woodside, Filoli 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.
