Magnificent Sea Cliff view estate! This handsome Federalist four-bedroom, four and one-half bathroom home boasts a commanding street presence with a wide lot and a lush front garden. It spans three levels, has been meticulously renovated from top to bottom, and features incredible views of the Golden Gate Bridge and the ocean.
Past the wrought iron entrance gate, lined on either side by exquisite flower plantings, one enters the garden, which has two lush lawns perfect for recreation, and is surrounded by hedges and trees for privacy. This south-facing yard gets great sunlight year-round.
A brick pathway leads to a formal entry way, and double doors invite you into this special home. An expansive foyer features a grand wrap-around staircase with a leaded glass windows at the landing bringing in wonderful light, and an elevator, which serves all three levels of the residence. Gleaming and rich hardwood floors contrast with creamy white walls decorated with beautiful original moldings and millwork, and high ceilings lend an open and airy feel to the space.
To the left of the entry is the grand formal living room, surrounded by oversized wood windows facing south, west and north. To the right of the entry is an elegant formal dining room, adorned with picture moldings, and with a splendid oversized south-facing window facing the garden greenery.
The kitchen/family room is inviting and equipped with everything you could imagine for today’s modern living. There is a cozy breakfast area with an area for seating flanked by built in-cabinets and windows overlooking the treetops of the back garden, and a spacious family area for informal gathering. Across from the marble topped island is a Miele cooktop range with griddle, a pot-filler, a custom hood, a Miele dishwasher, two Miele built-in ovens, luxurious marble counters and a slab backsplash. To the right of the island is a pantry closet with endless built-in shelving. The kitchen circles around to the left with additional cabinetry and counter space, a stainless sink under the window, and deluxe Miele appliances: built-in plumbed coffee maker, microwave and warming drawer, a Miele refrigerator, and a separate full Miele freezer. At the back of the kitchen, next to the dining room entrance, is a truly luxurious feature: a full butler’s pantry with wet bar, adorned with stylish blue cabinetry and nickel countertops, with a second Miele dishwasher, sink, and a wine refrigerator. Also on this level is a coat closet and a chic powder room with a striking floating blue marble sink.
Up the curving staircase to the second-floor landing, a view of the Golden Gate Bridge and the ocean is visible over the treetops through double-height leaded glass windows. Off the landing is a handsome 1920’s den/library, featuring dramatic cathedral beam ceilings, a secret original bar, a built-in office area, a gas burning fireplace flanked by bookshelves, and north windows facing the dazzling outlooks of the Bridge and the water over the treetops.
Up a few more stairs are three generous bedrooms, each with ensuite bathrooms, including the fabulous primary suite. The left-most bedroom has a walk-in closet and a handsome ensuite bathroom, outfitted with rich wood paneling, a tub with a marble surround, and a separate shower with beautiful mosaic panel. This bathroom could be converted back to a jack-and-jill with the den if one wished to have four bedrooms on this floor. The middle bedroom also has a walk-in closet and features an attractive ensuite bathroom ensconced in gray and white marble, with a walk-in glass shower.
The expansive primary suite boasts three windows with stunning views of the Bridge and the water as well as an outstanding walk-in closet. The ensuite primary bathroom is simply gorgeous: outfitted in pale gray and white marble, with an oversized walk-in rain and wall jet shower, a separate soaking tub with in-wall fixtures, a Toto washlet toilet in the water closet, and a floating double vanity and built-in cabinetry.
On the lower floor is a fantastic family room, perfect for informal gatherings, with French doors to the back garden. There is a laundry room with stacked full-size washer dryer, sink, shelving and folding counter, a storage room, and a large utility room, perfect for a home gym or play area. A beautifully finished guest suite is off the family room, with a lovely bedroom with a double closet and an ensuite marble bathroom with glass-enclosed shower and built-in cabinetry. There is interior access to the roomy two-car garage (two garage doors) with ample built-in shelves for storage and additional parking in the private driveway. All floors are connected by an elevator.
Out the French doors is a charming back seating area around a bubbling fountain, surrounded by lush backyard landscaping. There is also a delightful standalone versatile greenhouse with room for play, gardening or family gatherings.
Rarely do you find such a combination of a premiere Sea Cliff location, picturesque views, a verdant garden, and a spacious estate on a wide lot with an intuitive, functional floorplan and luxurious designer finishes.
