Dramatically situated on a coveted Forest Hill street and located in one of the most desirable neighborhoods in San Francisco, this tranquil residence represents the epitome of Urban/ Country living. The commanding hill-top view includes tree-lined streets dotted with Spanish Mediterranean tiled-roof homes in the foreground, encompassing the West Portal neighborhood, the southern districts of the city, Mount Davidson, and finally unveiling the beautiful Pacific Ocean in the far distance. Designed by renowned Bay Area Modernist Architect Henry Hill, in 1955, this home has been meticulously maintained by the same family for over 60 years. As you walk up the landscaped pathway with its well thought out plantings you are immediately aware of the architectural significance and dramatic presence of the home. You are welcomed into an open floor plan with a family room on the left which flows into a living room on the right….Great for entertaining!. There are walls of windows on all sides making the house light filled and taking advantage of the breathtaking views. On the right side of the entry you enjoy a gracious living room with an intriguing diagonal fireplace segueing into the dining area and remodeled kitchen with elegant wood cabinetry, new stainless steel appliances and handsome granite countertops. To the left there is a comfortable family room off which there are three bedrooms including an elegant master and en-suite tiled bath with great orientation to the rear patio and zen-like terraced garden. Close to Taraval and West Portal shopping and restaurants. Easy access to 280 Freeway.
