This enchanting Craftsman-style view home built in 1931 is tucked away on a wonderful tree-lined block in the heart of the neighborhood, close to Forest Hill Muni station! The beautiful garden entrance leads to an impressive veranda with notable arched doorway and into a gracious foyer with romantic open-banister staircase and two charming coat closets. The grand sunken formal living with hand-hewn open-beam ceiling boasts a gas fireplace with mantel and natural stone hearth, recessed lighting, exquisite random-plank hardwood floors and delightful outlooks to a sylvan setting. The step-up formal dining room or optional family room with double doors, striking light fixture, elegant wood paneling and French doors to the walk-out patio is perfect for entertaining! The fabulous remodeled gourmet kitchen showcases all stainless-steel appliances including a Sub-Zero refrigerator, Bosch dishwasher, KitchenAid gas range and Monogram microwave, gorgeous Carrara marble counters, custom cabinets with snazzy hardware and slow-close drawers, big walk-in pantry and a large adjacent great/breakfast room with two built-in corner cabinets. A convenient tiled full bath with views to the garden ends this level.

The spectacular Craftsman staircase with leaded and stained-glass windows ascends to the upper level landing with handsome display shelf, hallway with skylight and the home's private living quarters. The extraordinary master suite with wide-ranging views from Sutro Tower to Twin Peaks features a gas fireplace, sitting alcove, two huge walk-in closets with custom built-in organizers and dresser drawers, and a spacious en-suite bath with dual vanity sink, towel warmer and large walk-in shower. Two additional bedrooms - both with views to surrounding gardens - and a whimsical black and white checkerboard tiled "Jack and Jill" bath with walk-in shower and pedestal sink end this floor.

The lower level includes a user-friendly laundry room with utility sink and folding table, a walk-in wine room, informal game room, exercise/storage room and parking garage. The walk-out, park-like landscaped backyard with expansive patio and fire pit, sweeping lawn, mature plants and trees, secret hideaway studio or playhouse and tradesman's entrance completes this truly special home!
