Perched majestically above the Pacific Ocean with a commanding view of the Golden Gate Bridge, 140 Sea Cliff Avenue is an exceptional property in one of the best locations in San Francisco. Built in 1920 by renowned architect Sylvain Schnaittacher, the home was one of the finest of the era, and continues to be having undergone substantial renovations to add all the modern amenities while maintaining its original charm. With five bedrooms (four on one floor), four full baths and three half baths, a guest/au pair apartment, family room, and game room, this home is ideal for any family.
A gracious foyer with leaded windows leads to the large living room with beautiful moldings, a grand stone fireplace and French doors opening onto an expansive deck with a spectacular view over the water to the Golden Gate Bridge and Marin Headlands. The formal dining room can host large dinner parties or more intimate gatherings. The chef's kitchen has soapstone and marble counters, stainless steel appliances, great storage and a large breakfast area.
Hand forged iron railings lead you upstairs to four good sized bedrooms including a master suite that spans the width of the house with a view of the Golden Gate Bridge that rivals any other bedroom view in the world. All bedrooms on this floor have en suite access to a bathroom. The top floor has a wonderful family room with a wet bar, half bath, and a wrap-around deck that displays an even more enhanced panoramic view.
The lower level has a game room, temperature controlled wine cellar with a capacity of over 800 bottles, storage, and a full au pair or guest apartment. A gated driveway leads to the large open space behind the house and the two to four car garage, depending on car size. A romantic, private hot tub perched above the water’s edge completes this truly unique and magical residence.
