This handsome Mid-Century Contemporary view home with classic corbeled roof and decorative balcony built in 1963 is tucked away on a wonderful tree-lined block in the heart of the neighborhood, close to West Portal Village! A lovely garden entrance with terracotta tile staircase leads to the notable front door and into a remarkable lobby-like foyer with vaulted open-beam ceiling and convenient coat closet. The grand sunken formal living room with bank of picture windows boasts an imposing gas fireplace with attractive mantel and marble surround, built-in bookshelves, recessed lighting and gleaming hardwood floors. The impressive, banquet-size formal dining room with recessed lighting is perfect for entertaining! The beautifully remodeled gourmet kitchen showcases all stainless steel appliances including a GE Profile four-burner gas range with oven, warming drawer and hood, KitchenAid refrigerator and Miele Incognito dishwasher, gorgeous custom wood cabinets with slow-close and slide-out drawers, pantry, rich granite counters and a spacious breakfast bar with storage. A terrific family room that opens directly to the walk-out backyard and a charming powder room with vanity sink, oval mirror and snazzy wall sconces end this floor. 

The spectacular open-banister staircase with high ceiling, dramatic chandelier and extraordinary wall of windows and stained-glass panels ascends to the upper level landing, hallway and the home's private living quarters. The splendid master bedroom suite overlooks the garden oasis and features an open-beam ceiling, wall-to-wall closets and an enormous en-suite ceramic tile bath with dressing room and a separate walk-in shower and tub. Three additional good-size bedrooms - two with sweeping views of hills and trees - and a second full tile bath with shower over tub end this floor. The lower level includes a laundry area with washer, dryer and utility sink, built-in storage cabinets, huge crawl space and a generous-size two car side-by-side parking garage. The sensational, park-like landscaped backyard with tradesman's entrance, expansive deck, built-in bench seating, terraced stone walls, lush plantings and mature tulip, camellia and rhododendron trees completes this truly special home!
