This impressive Spanish Mediterranean Sweeping Pacific Ocean view home, with storybook balcony, period shutters and red tile roof built in 1927 is tucked away on a wonderful block in the heart of the neighborhood! An inviting garden entrance with flagstone walkway leads to a gated courtyard with step-up veranda and notable original front door and into a spectacular foyer with coat closet, period "telephone booth" and convenient powder room. The magnificent formal living room boasts a stately wood-burning fireplace with classic mantel and coat of arms motif, multi-layered picture moldings, herringbone hardwood floors and a huge picture window with decorative balcony and amazing views to Lake Merced and the Pacific Ocean! The grand formal dining room with striking light fixture and step-down reading room with built-in seating/storage and sweeping ocean views is perfect for entertaining! The tastefully remodeled gourmet kitchen with recessed lighting showcases all stainless-steel appliances including a Viking Professional gas range with oven, Miele dishwasher, Frigidaire refrigerator and GE microwave, black quartz counters, custom cabinets with glass doors, large walk-in pantry with ample storage and a spacious breakfast room with built-in sideboard.

The dramatic six-sided, two-story open-banister staircase ascends to the upper level landing with hallway, skylight, charming walk-out balcony and the home's private living quarters. The stunning master bedroom with big walk-in closet and connected "vintage" tiled bath with walk-in shower, separate cast iron soaking tub and pedestal sink enjoys breathtaking panoramic views from the Olympic Club and Lake Merced to the Pacific Ocean and the Marin Headlands. Two additional good-size bedrooms, a gigantic sunroom/playroom with awesome views and a second vintage tiled full bath end this floor.

The lower level includes an enormous wood-paneled family room with built-in bookshelves and wall to wall closets, a huge laundry room and a third full bath. The remarkable, park-like landscaped backyard with deck, built-in bench, walking paths, patio, decorative fountain, stone walls and magical garden with mature plants and trees completes this truly special home!
