When it comes to real estate, the mantra has always been “location, location, location.” But an ocean view—and specifically a view of one of California’s most iconic bridges—easily elevates a property from ordinary to extraordinary. This historic 1920 house, located in San Francisco’s Sea Cliff neighborhood, is just that kind of extraordinary with “postcard sweeping views from the Marin headlands to the Golden Gate Bridge.”  In fact, the view alone from the home’s outdoor terrace has the power to make you forget the fact that it is also located in one of the city’s most renowned and coveted enclaves, which some people affectionately call “Beverly Hills North.”

Originally designed by architect Albert Farr (best known for designing in Craftsman and Georgian styles),  the home is flooded with natural light throughout each of the four elegantly appointed levels. The 9,000 square-foot, 7-bedroom home “can be formal if needed for entertaining or a wonderful more casual home for large families,” according to the property description—and it’s easy to see why. The home has been meticulously remodeled, renovated and expanded by the current owner. Attention to detail and design play out in amenities such as an elegant cherry wood-lined elevator, a gas-powered hot tub overlooking the cliffs with speakers in the wall, a custom sculptural solid bronze railings signed by the artist and plumbing for future solar. Modern technology like a home audio system throughout and wiring for total Internet connectivity also add an element of contemporary comfort.
