What more could one want from a home than this 9,400-square-foot Tudor estate?
Built in 1928 overlooking China Beach in San Francisco's Sea Cliff, it has storybook curb appeal, elegant interiors—which include a home theater, gym, sauna, and indoor pool—and a quarter-acre of property (it's one of the neighborhood's largest lots) with a courtyard and manicured garden. And like any tranquil beachfront sanctuary worth its (sea) salt, it has wonderful ocean views.
A dramatic foyer announces the main level where picture windows highlight a modern crystal chandelier above a grand winding staircase. This airy space has direct access to the front courtyard.
The stately living area is made cozy with exposed wood beams, a period stone fireplace, and built-in shelving for books and collectibles. Glass doors open onto a brick terrace that overlooks the Pacific Ocean and Marin Headlands.
Take in a similar view from the formal dining room where more large windows frame a natural artwork of the sea and cypress trees. Ready for hosting guests, the dining room connects to the spacious kitchen, a more casual eat-in area, and breakfast bar. A family lounge overlooks the garden.
From the central foyer illuminated by a stained glass window, head upstairs to the private quarters. The primary suite has open-beam cathedral ceilings and windows on two sides that look out to the garden and ocean. This owners' retreat has dual baths and dressing rooms. Four additional bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and a library with a fireplace and private balcony complete this floor.
This house is plush with amenities. You'll find a modern movie theater, indoor pool, sauna, and gym with a full bathroom on the bottom floors. Car lovers will appreciate the gated rear driveway and motor court as well as a two-car side-by-side garage. An elevator connects all levels from the garage to the bedrooms.
Asking price: $14,500,000
