The former chairman of JetBlue, Joel Peterson, has sold his Silicon Valley estate to a crypto and blockchain investor for about $45 million. The transaction makes it one of the most expensive deals ever recorded in Northern California. Peterson’s Woodside property sits at around 11 acres.

However, Mr. Peterson put the property on the market in February 2021 for $49 million. The buyers agreed to buy the property about two months later. However, the listing agent, Arthur Sharif of Sotheby’s International Realty, alleged they negotiated an abnormally extended closing term. Additionally, prior to the closing, they had already moved into the property.

The listing agent did not disclose the identity of the buyer. However, the records point to Suna Said and her husband, Scott Maslin. Suna and Scott are the founders of the real estate investment platform Woodglen Investments and the CEO and founder of Nima Capital, respectively. Recently Nima Capital has been active in the crypto market. Additionally, Ken DeLeon of DeLeon Realty acted as the couple’s representative.

The Woodside property was crafted by a well-known local architect Bernard Maybeck. The property contains a tennis pavilion, a swimming pool, three guesthouses, various garages, a soccer field, and a barn, according to a Wall Street Journal report.

The primary Maybeck residence is about 6,000 square feet and has three bedrooms. On the other hand, the second property is a ranch-style residence, approximately 5,100 square feet, with five bedrooms. Mr. Peterson bought one house for roughly $6 million and began assembling the property in early 2000. Later, he added attributes to each side. By 2010, he had completed building the compound.

Peterson’s reasons for selling Silicon Valley

Mr. Peterson’s primary home is in Salt Lake City, Utah. The Woodside property has served as his home when he is in town to lecture at Stanford University. He noted that he lectures on real estate, leadership, and entrepreneurship at Stanford. Notably, it is a place for him, his wife, their seven adult children, and their families to gather for holidays and reunions. Additionally, he hosted a JetBlue leadership event at the Silicon Valley estate.

However, Peterson gave his reasons for selling the estate. He noted

Part of it is Covid. It has been over a year since I have been out there. We’re not able to gather there as much.

He further asserted that he is also trying to scale back as he ages. “You get to the closing chapters of your life and try to simplify.” Mr. Peterson, who stepped down from office last year, served on the board of JetBlue airways for over 20 years. He is 74 years of age.
