308 Sea Cliff Avenue
This circa-1922 Neo-Classical Sea Cliff home, perched high on the cliffs above the Pacific Ocean, presents buyers with a rare opportunity to create the home of their dreams in this highly sought-after San Francisco enclave. The setting offers both a sense of privacy and unobstructed scenery with sweeping, world-class views above the Pacific Ocean and the Marin Headlands.
The 4-bedroom, 4.5-bathroom home is rich with Old World architecture and retains much of its original period detail and charm. Enter through custom gates into a beautifully landscaped serene garden courtyard which sets the home back from the road for added exclusivity. Inside, you will experience a magical interaction of home and site. Huge picture windows frame visions of crashing whitewater, Land’s End at China Beach and the rocky cliffs jutting into the Pacific.
The floor plan displays bright light and pure continuity, with great potential to transform this beauty into a truly unique showpiece. A classically framed door with decorative ironwork leads opens into a foyer with a grand spiral staircase as the dramatic first impression in the formal entry. The living room, with its original classic moldings and woodburning fireplace, captures wide-open sea vistas through broad windows, while the adjoining dining room allows further enjoyment of the magnificent ocean views. On the entry floor there is also a garden-view family room, a large kitchen with a breakfast nook, a full bathroom and a half-bathroom off the foyer.
Upstairs, the grand-size master bedroom suite offers a woodburning fireplace, two dressing rooms and a "sun room" where one may relax and enjoy the spectacular ocean views and the luxurious sound of lapping waves. Two family/guest bedrooms, a full bathroom, a storage closet and a linen closet complete this floor. Downstairs, there is another third bedroom suite with remodeled bathroom, a large bonus room, a study nook and two large storage rooms. Outside, the very private garden is perched on a bluff overlooking the incomparable setting.
For those seeking a classic character home, this Sea Cliff gem awaits a new dimension of possibilities and distinguished living.
