This stately Craftsman Pacific Ocean view home designed by Christiansen Brothers and built in 1923 is beautifully situated on an oversized lot in the heart of the neighborhood, close to West Portal Village shops, restaurants and Muni Station! The wonderful garden entrance with sophisticated, colorful plantings and inviting walkway leads to the large arched portico with notable original front door and into the spacious foyer with handsome open-banister staircase. The magnificent formal living room with impressive walk-out terrace and ocean views boasts a wood-burning fireplace with exquisite "klinker" brick surround, coved and recessed ceiling, picture moldings and gleaming hardwood floors. The elegant formal dining room with striking light fixture and French doors that open into the kitchen is perfect for entertaining! The tastefully remodeled gourmet kitchen with recessed lights showcases all stainless-steel appliances including a Bosch gas stovetop and oven. Sub-Zero refrigerator, Bosch dishwasher, Carrara quartz counters and custom two-tone painted cabinets with fancy hardware. The huge, adjacent light-filled family room with breakfast area features French doors that open to the expansive walk-out terrace and gorgeous Pacific Ocean views. A convenient, delightful tiled powder room ends this floor.

The classic open-banister staircase with attractive carpet runner ascends to the upper level landing and hallway with built-in library bookshelves and the home's private living quarters. The spectacular master suite enjoys a massive private en-suite bath with walk-in shower, separate soaking tub, water closet with privacy door, large skylight and an amazing walk-out balcony with panoramic views to the Pacific Ocean, hills and trees. Two additional good-size bedrooms - one with a big walk-in closet and built-in bookshelves and the other with ocean views - and a second remodeled full bath with shower over tub end this floor.

The lower level includes a guest room/home office with built-in shelves, a third full bath, hobby/wine room, laundry room with utility sink, washer and dryer, and French doors that open to the walk-out deck and garden. The extraordinary private landscaped backyard with sweeping lawn, splendid mature plants and trees, stepping stone walkway, large patio and tradesman's entrance completes this truly special home!
