This stately Spanish Mediterranean Pacific Ocean view home built in 1926, designed by prominent Bay Area architect H. C. Baumann, is beautifully situated on a prime tree-lined block, close to Terrace Park and West Portal Village shops, restaurants and Muni station! An exquisite landscaped garden leads to an enchanting gated courtyard entrance with original concrete park bench, decorative wall fountain and step-up portico with notable front door and into an impressive lobby-like foyer with dramatic turret staircase, open-beam ceiling, terracotta tile floor and convenient entry hall coat closet. The grand sunken formal living room with dining area boasts an imposing fireplace with elaborate period mantel, remarkable vaulted barrel ceiling, gorgeous parquet hardwood floors and large picture window with Pacific Ocean views. The stunning state-of-the-art gourmet kitchen with enormous work-island, double-sink, lunch counter and overhead pendant lights showcases all Thermador stainless-steel appliances including a six-burner gas stove with oven and hood, refrigerator with freezer drawer, dishwasher and microwave, white quartz counters with classic Heath tile backsplash, pantry, custom cabinets with slow-close drawers, separate wet-bar and charming light-filled breakfast area. The spectacular adjacent family room with four sets of French doors and arched transom windows, open-beam ceiling and original terracotta tile floor is ideal for everyday entertaining! A wonderful powder room with large cloak closet and original stained glass windows finish this floor.

The extraordinary spiral staircase with exquisite open-banister railing and 64-pane leaded glass window with vintage family crest ascends to the upper level landing and the home's private living quarters.  The sumptuous master bedroom suite with sweeping views to the Pacific Ocean and the Farallon Islands features custom wall to wall closets and a luxurious marble and tile bath with dual vanity sink, big walk-in shower and separate soaking tub. Three additional good-size bedrooms - all with custom closets - a large sunroom, and a second full remodeled bath with separate laundry station end this floor.

The lower level includes a spacious game/media room with recessed lighting, a "bonus" guest or exercise room, third full bath and a terrific private home office. The inviting and delightful landscaped backyard with attractive flagstone patio, barbecue area, side yard and tradesman's entrance completes this truly special home!
