Resting majestically on a prestigious cliff-side lot overlooking the Pacific Ocean in San Francisco’s exclusive Sea Cliff, this magnificent four-level residence is nothing short of world-class. Built in 1920, 164 Sea Cliff Avenue was designed by notable Bay Area architect Albert Farr, who integrated significant elements of Georgian and French Renaissance architecture into the home’s design. A tasteful and complete renovation has preserved the property’s original ambiance while incorporating the latest modern comforts and conveniences.

The view, awe-inspiring from every level and terrace, offers a panorama of the Golden Gate Bridge, Pacific Ocean, Baker Beach, the Presidio, and Marin Headlands. Notable details include a custom wood paneled elevator that services all levels, impressive crown moldings, oak hardwood floors, custom light fixtures, air conditioning, Crestron audio and automated lighting systems, water filtration system, and additional custom features that exemplify the abundance level of quality present throughout the home.  

The magic begins in the foyer as one is greeted by a beautiful staircase, and by arched doorways leadings into the formal living and dining rooms.  The grand-scale living room hosts a gas fireplace with Calacatta marble surround, and offers spectacular views through its wall of windows.  French doors open to a terrace bordered by stone planters and solid bronze railings.  From there, a stone walkway leads to smaller terraces and a hot tub, which are perfectly perched along the cliff side.

The dining room, its formality enhanced by a beautiful chandelier and sconces, overlooks a tranquil garden and fountain.  Pocket doors open to a more informal dining area adjacent to the gourmet kitchen appointed with custom cabinetry, high-end appliances including a 6-burner gas range and grill, Calacatta marble counters, honed limestone floor, and custom-forged copper sinks.

The upper levels are devoted to resort-class bedrooms and baths, including the master suite. The master suite is a retreat unto itself where seating areas accented by a gas fireplace provide a tranquil retreat, as well as two walk-in closets. The luxurious master bath hosts dual sinks with Waterworks fixtures, an oversized soaking tub, and a glassed-in steam shower.

The penthouse level basks in the light of a large skylight over the stairs and hallway. There’s a spacious guest suite, two additional bedrooms, a bathroom, and office. A large, wood paneled pent room hosts a gas fireplace, Juliette balcony, and breathtaking views.

The lower level of this amazing impeccable home features a 1,000-bottle temperature-controlled wine and tasting room, an exercise room, a spa bath with sauna, and a family media room that opens to the gated motor court and includes interior access from the three-car garage. 

164 Sea Cliff Ave is located on a coveted block in the exclusive Sea Cliff neighborhood and is undoubtedly one of the finest homes in San Francisco.
