This extraordinary, stately Spanish Mediterranean view home built in 1926 is proudly situated in prestigious Forest Hill, close to West Portal Village shops, restaurants and public transportation! The impressive gated courtyard entrance with landscaped grounds leads to the notable arched doorway and into a remarkable greeting hall with two-story open-beam ceiling and convenient coat closet. The magnificent sunken formal living room with open cross-beam ceiling boasts an imposing gas fireplace with original Batchelder tile surround, rich mahogany wood windows and gleaming hardwood floors. The stunning banquet-size formal dining room with built-in dry-bar and striking chandelier is perfect for entertaining! The amazing remodeled gourmet kitchen with huge work-island showcases all stainless-steel appliances including a Thermador Professional six-burner gas range with hood, built-in Thermador double-oven, Sub-Zero refrigerator and Bosch dishwasher, a barrel-front pizza oven, wet-bar with second dishwasher, granite counters, specialty custom wood cabinets with slide-out drawers, garden window, gigantic walk-in butler's pantry with warming drawer and microwave as well as a large six-sided breakfast room with direct access to the garden. The classic turret-shaped home office with gas fireplace and adjacent library with curved built-in bookshelves, a comfortable guest bedroom and full bath end this level.

The spectacular open-banister wrought iron circular staircase with stucco walls, stained glass window, original wall sconces and hand-stenciled open-beam ceiling ascends to the upper level with landing, hallway, coat and linen closets and a dramatic triple-arched opening overlooking the masterfully designed foyer. The sumptuous light-filled master bedroom suite with walk-out balcony and views to both Mount Davidson and Edgehill Mountain features a spacious sitting room and an enormous, luxurious bathroom with two pedestal sinks, claw-foot tub, separate walk-in shower and private water closet. Two additional good-size bedrooms - both with big closets and one with an expansive walk-out balcony - and a third full remodeled bath end this floor.

The basement level includes a wine cellar, safe, laundry room with sink, storage room, utility room and a two car parking garage. The walk-out landscaped backyard with patio, built-in seating, garden, dog run and tradesman's entrance completes this truly special home!
