Sea Cliff, a neighborhood that sits on the Northwestern cliff of the Richmond District bordering the Pacific Ocean, is one of San Francisco’s most desirable enclaves. Many of the homes in Sea Cliff rest on expansive lots, positioned to take in amazing views of the Golden Gate Bridge and ocean vistas. It’s the reason why many celebrities and famous personalities have flocked to its bayside cliffs, including Jefferson Airplane’s Paul Kantner, Metallica’s Kirk Hammett, Robin Williams, Sharon Stone, Eugene Levy, Cheech Marin, and photographer Ansel Adams. Due to its long history dating back to 1906, Sea Cliff is home to several architectural styles, including Mediterranean, Spanish colonial revival, French chateau, and Georgian manor. Homes here have been in the same family for generations, with most being kept in pristine condition to maintain the elegant character of the neighborhood.
This well-maintained classic 1920s Sea Cliff residence, recently listed for $10,980,000 by Joel Goodrich of the Coldwell Banker Realty San Francisco Pacific Heights office, follows in this tradition. The original exterior impresses with a beautiful street presence and grand entry. Inside the 3,420 square-foot residence, fine architectural detailing expressed in original hardwood flooring, exquisite mouldings and millwork exude timeless elegance. Sweeping views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Baker Beach, Presidio National Park, the Marin Headlands, and the dazzling waters of the Pacific Ocean are captured from many of the rooms. Four bedrooms and four full baths allow for plenty of space and privacy.
The home’s fabulous Sea Cliff location feels miles away from the hustle and bustle of city life, yet still close to all of the action and near the city’s booming tech and finance hubs with easy access to Silicon Valley. The beachfront lifestyle is also just a short drive away.
