This phenomenal, light-filled one-level Ranch-style Pacific Ocean view home built in 1952 is beautifully situated on a premier oversized corner lot and wonderful tree-lined block in the heart of historic St. Francis Wood! A walled, gated entrance opens into a stunning garden oasis with sprawling lawns and an inviting brick walkway that leads to the notable veranda with incredible original front door and into an impressive foyer with center hall floor plan and two convenient coat closets. The spectacular living room with huge picture windows and sweeping views from the Olympic Club to the Pacific Ocean boasts a wood-burning fireplace with gas starter, massive limestone surround and stone mantel, chic wall sconces, recessed lighting, built-in ceiling speakers and gleaming hardwood floors. The banquet-size dining room with remarkable 12-pendant chandelier and terrific sideboard with ample storage and slow-close drawers is perfect for entertaining! The exceptional, state-of-the-art gourmet kitchen with picturesque outlooks and adjacent walk-out patio with two electric heaters showcases all stainless steel appliances, including a Wolf five-burner gas stovetop, Viking oven and microwave, Sub-Zero refrigerator and Bosch dishwasher, gorgeous soapstone counters with subway tile backsplash, handsome rift-sawn white oak cabinets with slow-close and specialty drawers, pantry, big work-island with lunch bar and a delightful breakfast corner with built-in banquette.

A comfortable, spacious family room with built-in media center, a fabulous laundry room with washer, dryer, utility sink and folding table, and an attractive marble tile full bath with walk-in shower and pedestal sink end the social wing of the home. A wide, expansive hallway with dramatic skylight and linen and shoe closets leads to the sumptuous private living quarters. The grand master suite with marvelous Pacific Ocean views features a fantastic custom walk-in closet with built-in clothes racks, shoe cubicles and dresser drawers with overhead shelving, and a private marble tile bath with radiant heated floors, dual vanity sink with mirrors and medicine cabinets, and a luxurious walk-in shower. Four additional good-size bedrooms - all with tremendous built-in custom closets and motion sensor lights, two with views to the courtyard and one with views to the Pacific Ocean - and a third tiled full bath with separate shower and soaking tub end this floor. The amazing basement level includes a stupendous four-car parking garage with workbench, abundant storage and a nice, built-in elevated gym space. The large, wrap-around park-like level landscaped yard with lush lawns, blooming garden, mature plants and trees, great night lighting and a separate side patio with natural gas-plumbed barbecue completes this truly special, one-of-a-kind home!
