This fabulous Spanish Mediterranean Pacific Ocean view home built in 1937 is nestled on a wonderful block close to Aptos Park and Lakeside Village shops, restaurants and Muni transportation!  A delightful garden entrance with inviting flagstone walkway leads to a gated courtyard with arched turret and notable original front door and into an expansive lobby-like foyer with coat closet.  The dramatic formal living room with cathedral ceiling boasts a corner wood-burning fireplace, a bank of windows with plantation shutters, built-in bookshelves, beautiful parquet hardwood floors and views to the park.  The exquisite formal dining room with gorgeous multi-layered tray ceiling and striking chandelier is perfect for entertaining!  The grand gourmet kitchen with huge work-island, breakfast area and built-in sideboard/pantry showcases all stainless-steel appliances including a five-burner gas stovetop, separate oven, dishwasher and refrigerator, quartz counters, custom two-tone painted cabinets, recessed lighting, tile floors and views to the garden.

The split-level staircase ascends to the upper hallway with linen closet, two good-size bedrooms - both with giant wall-to-wall closets and one with a walk-out balcony and views to the ocean - and a nice remodeled full bath with shower over jetted tub and vanity sink with mirrored medicine cabinet.

The next split-level includes an enormous family room with vaulted ceiling and fireplace and  a fantastic home office with privacy doors and amazing views to the Pacific Ocean, Olympic Club, hills and trees. 

The top level features a spectacular master suite with large dressing area, wall-to-wall closets, a terrific remodeled full bath with big walk-in shower, and sweeping views from the Marin Headlands to the Pacific Ocean and the Olympic Club.

The lower level enjoys a playroom/4th bedroom with private bath, a gigantic two-car parking garage with extraordinary workbench, laundry area with utility sink and ample storage. The impressive landscaped backyard with brick patio, covered pergola, artificial lawn and colorful flowerbeds completes this truly special home!
