After a little more than a year on the market, Michelle Pfeiffer’s estate in Woodside has sold. The appealing estate was initially listed by the actor in the spring of 2018, asking $29.5 million, and sold toward the tail end of last year for $22 million. Pfeiffer and her husband, producer David Kelly, purchased the place in 2004, for $12 million.
The 6,000 square foot house dates to 1940, and sports Spanish-style architectural design elements. It is strongly aligned with its landscape, presenting a vine-covered façade that echoes the lush grounds.
The home’s interiors are generally quite open, and also comfortably traditional. More assertive expressions include a large, formal limestone fireplace, but as a rule the living style is pretty unassuming, and comfortably familiar.
Plank oak floors, a step-down living room, an entertainment/media room with built-ins and a rail ladder, wainscoting, and a half staircase with a landing are a few of the home’s details. The décor mixes soft warm and cool tones, setting a fine balance.
The grounds are astonishing. Well over eight acres of land that is landscaped in the romantic style. A stall—either octagonal or decagonal—sets the equestrian tenor of the estate, and is designed around a central garden illuminated by a partially open roof.
Pfeiffer’s recent silver screen appearances have found her playing Queen Ingrith in Maleficent: Mistress of Evil; she will appear in the upcoming French Exit. She and Kelly wed in 1993.
