Ideally-located on a quiet residential block in Monterey Heights, this bright, beautiful and meticulously designed Mediterranean-style residence blends the very best of high-end contemporary living with elegant architectural details of the past, offering over 3,300 square feet of “transitional style” living space on three separate levels.
No expenses were spared on the head-to-toe renovation completed in 2018, for this lovely single family home which features spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean, city skyline, and Lake Merced, as well as four private bedroom retreats, four and one-half bathrooms, formal living room, formal dining room, a stunning state-of-the-art Chef’s kitchen with adjacent breakfast room, a sumptuous grand-suite with west and east facing terraces, expansive family room, and a sun-filled southwest facing outdoor IPE wood deck with flowering front & rear gardens.
Enter the Spanish-style residence by ascending red brick stairs alongside gorgeous low-maintenance landscaping accented by lush succulents. A formal split-level entry foyer boasts original Spanish paver tiles and wrought iron railings with decorative details overhead including original crown molding and cornice work.
Step down to the right to find a sunken formal living room with refurbished parquet wood floors, original to the 1931 property, a new Heat and Glo gas fireplace, new modern light fixture, recessed lighting, and sparkling views of the southwest side of San Francisco and the ocean.
To the left of the living room a formal dining room boasts gorgeous water views through a large picture window, vintage Spanish paver flooring, and three distinctive Mediterranean-style window arches offer a peek through to the living room.
The dining room opens to a gourmet Chef’s kitchen with a quartz-topped breakfast bar. Here a state-of-the-art renovated kitchen offers a complete Thermador Professional Series stainless steel appliance package including gas range/oven, French door refrigerator with bottom freezer, dishwasher, and large stainless Blanco undermount sink. The kitchen is accented by an artisan stone-tile backsplash, gorgeous custom-tile flooring imported from Italy, high-end “Columbia” Canadian cabinetry and stylish pendulum lighting.
A glorious breakfast room is adjacent to the kitchen, featuring an alcove of Bay windows adding bright and sparkling vistas to your eat-in experience. A full bath on this level includes a custom tile shower, with Italian tile flooring. The bathroom is adjacent to a generously sized bedroom with parquet hardwood floors, fully outfitted closet, and windows with new Hunter-Douglas shades.
Head up a gorgeous stairway with vintage braided molding overhead to find two ensuite retreats, each with breath-taking views and outdoor spaces. The bedroom on the left is a fully equipped ensuite bedroom with large glass door leading to a generously sized veranda with sweeping and dramatic views of the city and ocean. The bathroom here includes granite vanity tops with undermount sink and beautiful wood cabinet base.
Step down the hall to find the grand-suite, a dramatic bedroom with windows and light coming from all four directions, as well as access through French doors to the large west-facing terrace and cozy east-facing terrace. The grand-suite is complete with two walk-in closets and a generous bath with dual sinks, artisan crafted tiles, oversized shower, and bathtub with Hansgrohe tub spout.
Descend to the lower level of the house through a stairway in the living room to find an expansive family room with gas Heat & Glo fireplace, powder room, and a large custom glass sliding door leading to a gorgeous, 15 foot by 20 foot IPE hardwood deck with modern designer’s railing, and lovely landscaped gardens.
In addition, the lower level boasts an entire guest suite wing, complete with ensuite bedroom and full bath, a fitness room, and an office with gorgeous west facing views. Also accessed on this floor is a pristine laundry room with full-sized front-loading Electrolux washer and dryer, sub-basement perfect for a wine cellar & additional storage, and access to the pristine garage & systems.
Well situated in Monterey heights, adjacent to St. Francis Wood; just a short 12-minute stroll to charming downtown West Portal or the underground muni stop, for a car-free commute to the rest of the city and myriad points beyond.

Monterey Heights is situated on the western slope of Mount Davidson. Stately homes with larger yards, front and back, characterize Monterey Heights, giving it a slightly affluent suburban feel, particularly those on Rosewood Avenue. Many of the homes are quite majestic, although there is a large spectrum of styles and sizes. Immediately southwest of Twin Peaks, this segment is nestled near St. Francis Wood, Sherwood Forest and Westwood Highlands. There is an active neighborhood association that even includes a "welcome committee" for new residents as well as social and edifying activities. This primarily quiet residential neighborhood has few retail or commercial outlets, which only lends to its quaint and charming character. However nearby West Portal is the perfect outlet for restaurants, shopping and MUNI access.
