Private Homes house description

Offering beautiful views of the ocean, beach, and hills, this home is surrounded by towering trees and open space, all just 18 minutes from downtown San Francisco. The perfect combination of city and country, this non-smoking gem is tucked away on a wooded hillside, set high on a large lot. An oceanfront beach park is a 5 minute walk away, through this quiet, semi-rural neighborhood. You will see deer, birds, and other wildlife, while just minutes from San Francisco and many other Bay Area destinations.

The home is a large, spectacular, and modern seven-level, twelve-room, three-bath design, with many lofts, bonus rooms, hideaways, and decks, spread out over 4000 square feet. The innovative design features over 50 windows, glass doors, and large skylights; soaring open-beam ceilings to 20 feet high; two spiral staircases; and ample use of wood throughout. Beautiful yet casual and family-oriented, the house has two decks, a rooftop patio, a large and private two-level back yard, and a 'jacuzzi' bathtub. Views of the ocean, beach, forest, and hills surround the home -- through every window and from every deck.

All telephones have unlimited long distance (within the United States); wireless cable internet service available throughout the house. The kitchen is well-equipped; laundry facilities are conveniently located in the center of the house. A guest kitchen is located in the North Wing for your convenience.

The house is listed as 'five-bedroom,' but the unusual layout actually includes nine potential sleeping areas: two 'normal' bedrooms, a very large master bedroom suite; one large mostly-enclosed 'mezzanine' style bedroom; two sleeping lofts (accessible by ladder); an office; a family room; and a small children's playroom. Note that neither of the sleeping lofts is a proper 'bedroom,' as they are small and headroom is limited. Altogether, there are five queen beds (one a mattress); two twins; a sofa-bed; a futon-style foam mat; and several couches.

The home is set well back from the quiet, dead-end street, at the top of a 120-foot curved driveway. There is ample parking right on the property.

The location is along the ocean, a few miles south of the San Francisco Zoo (at the southwest corner of the San Francisco City Limits). It is in an outstanding location: very close in to everything, yet it has a 'retreat' feel to it, set amidst lovely ocean/mountain views, open space, and million-dollar homes.
