This spectacular one-level Contemporary Ranch-style Pacific Ocean view home built in 1952, designed by renowned architect Thomas Ward, is perfectly situated on a sprawling lot exceeding 1/3 acre! The impressive, lush garden entrance with sweeping manicured lawns, mature plants and trees, inviting walkway and classic over-sized veranda with brick planter boxes leads to the notable front door and into a wonderful foyer with convenient coat closet. The grand living room with vaulted open-beam ceiling and dramatic chandelier boasts a massive wood-burning fireplace with copper hood and enormous brick surround, an incredible wall of windows and rich hardwood floors. The spacious, banquet-size dining room with vaulted open-beam ceiling, sophisticated chandelier, and tremendous built-in side-board with abundant storage is perfect for entertaining! The beautifully remodeled gourmet kitchen with recessed lighting, huge work-island with breakfast bar and three overhead pendant lights and a terrific butler's pantry showcases all Thermador stainless steel appliances, including a six-burner gas stove-top with hood, built-in double oven, refrigerator and dishwasher, a JennAir microwave, granite counters and stunning custom wood cabinets with pull-out storage and slow-close drawers. 

The amazing kitchen with direct access to the outdoors opens into a comfortable family room with gas fireplace, built-in grill and original "walk-behind" Art Deco wet-bar. The exceptional laundry/mudroom includes a washer, dryer, utility sink, folding table, second full-size refrigerator, wine fridge, walk-in pantry and a stylish remodeled full guest bath with vanity sink, commode with heated seat and big walk-in shower. The expansive hallway with additional coat closet and original linen closet with drawers leads to the home's private living quarters. The splendid master bedroom suite features a walk-in wardrobe with two wall-to-wall closets on either side, a dressing area with third wall-to-wall closet and a private en-suite "vintage" tile bath with vanity sink and separate shower and tub. Two additional good-size bedrooms - one with a classic built-in wall of bookshelves - and a third tiled bath with shower over tub end this wing. The extraordinary walk-out patio leads to a fabulous artist's studio/home office with open-beam ceiling and to a pressure-treated wood staircase that descends to a lower level with home gym and separate wine cellar. The remarkable, park-like landscaped backyard with vast patio, terraced gardens, mature cypress and oak trees and panoramic views from the glimmering Pacific Ocean and Farallon Islands to the Marin Headlands completes this truly special home!
