This magnificent Spanish Mediterranean view home designed by architect B. Cooper Corbett in 1925 is perfectly situated on a gentle knoll and impressive block, close to West Portal Village shops, restaurants and Muni station. An elegant, lush garden entrance with brick staircase leads to a wonderful double-arched columned portico with notable front door and into an extraordinary lobby-like foyer with convenient coat closet. The grand formal living room with high ceiling boasts an exquisite wood-burning fireplace with original stone mantle surround, crown moldings, large picture windows, gleaming hardwood floors and French doors that open to a garden oasis. The remarkable banquet-size formal dining room with wall panel moldings and striking chandelier is perfect for entertaining! The splendid updated kitchen with comfortable breakfast area showcases all stainless steel appliances including a Bosch five-burner gas stovetop with Broan hood, built-in double oven, refrigerator and dishwasher, gorgeous quartz counters, painted wood cabinets with snazzy hardware, big pantry and direct access to the picturesque backyard. A terrific home office/fourth bedroom and a full bath with cast iron tub, pedestal sink and views to the yard end this level. 

A handsome wrought iron open-banister staircase ascends to the upper level landing with hallway, attractive ceiling light fixture, linen closet and the home's private living quarters. The spectacular master bedroom suite with Pacific Ocean views features a spacious walk-in closet with artistic leaded-glass window, a delightful dressing room with built-in vanity and closets, and an adjoining "vintage" tile en-suite bath with plantation shutters, pedestal sink, mirrored medicine cabinet, shower over cast iron tub and lovely outlooks to the garden. Two additional good-size bedrooms and a "Jack and Jill" full bath finish this floor. The lower level includes a laundry area with washer, dryer and utility sink, built-in storage and a hobby space. The beautiful landscaped backyard with tradesman's entrance, brick patio and step-up terrace with seating area, olive trees, sweeping lawn and flowerbeds with blooming jasmine, hydrangeas and pink breath of heaven completes this truly special home!
