Inviting and spacious move-in ready home, right by the shops and restaurants of West Portal! Great natural light from multiple skylights, elegant entertaining spaces, and a thoughtful floorplan that includes 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a dedicated office, family room, and a level, walk-out yard.
The main floor of the home offers a gracious entry foyer with double coat closet and handsome hardwood flooring throughout. A unique open staircase with two large skylights connects both floors. To the right is a bright and sunny living room with oversized windows and a wood-burning fireplace with a stylish tile facade. The living room opens into a formal dining room and eat-in kitchen, with two more skylights overhead filling the room with light. The chef’s kitchen boasts white quartz countertops, chic tile backsplash, rich wood cabinetry, and stainless appliances including a Viking Professional four-burner range and hood. On the peninsula is an oversized stainless sink and a breakfast bar for informal dining. Floor-to-ceiling pantry closets line the side wall for convenient storage. Down the hallway, past the linen closet, are three bedrooms and a full bathroom. The back two bedrooms are both generously sized with excellent closet space and large windows facing the backyard, and the third bedroom could double as a lovely nursery or small home office. The upstairs bedrooms share a bathroom with a shower over tub, elegantly renovated with designer gray tile and custom vanity.
Downstairs is an expansive family room with sliding door walk-out garden access and another full bathroom with shower over tub. The adjacent laundry room includes side-by-side new LG washer and dryer and stainless utility sink, as well as custom countertop for folding and storage. The fabulous master suite is a spacious getaway bedroom complete with built-in bookshelves, a large walk-in closet, and walk-out access through sliding glass doors to the garden. There is a beautiful master bathroom ensuite with a double vanity and sleek gray tile shower with glass door. On this floor is also a wonderful home office with a double door closet, and an additional large storage closet built in underneath the stairs.
Through the family room, one walks out to the patio area perfect for a BBQ, outdoor dining and entertaining. Beyond that is a cozy lawn surrounded by tasteful landscaping offering a nice amount of privacy.
Off this level is a roomy 1-car garage with a separate trash can storage area built out on one side. Extensive structural upgrades were made to the home including seismically upgrading the concrete foundation and installing a strong wall around the garage. In addition, there are numerous modern conveniences installed throughout including: CAT-5 wiring and ethernet, Nest thermostat, Ring video doorbell, custom motorized Hunter Douglas skylight shades, recessed lighting, and more.
Located on a quiet, residential street in a lovely neighborhood, this home is just a couple of blocks from the fantastic shops and restaurants of West Portal, MUNI train, West Portal Elementary, West Portal Library, Larsen Park & Playground, and a short jaunt to Stern Grove Playground and Meadows.

One of San Francisco’s hidden gems, West Portal gets its name from the Muni Metro Station which runs through Twin Peaks Tunnel. Since the fog (known by locals as “Karl”) stops near the West Portal neighborhood, this is a great place to live if you enjoy bright blue skies. West Portal is filled with beautiful, traditional homes that are incredibly spacious. The Muni Station makes it easy for commuters to access the Financial District, Google, and the always-vibrant Union Square. Plus, Silicon Valley is easily accessible via the Highway 280, making West Portal a nice, central hub no matter where you work. The West Portal neighborhood is ideal for the Bay Area resident who loves supporting local businesses. Find all your favorite books and shop for new ones at the BookShop West Portal, buy all your hardware needs at Papenhausen Hardware (opening soon after reconstruction), and find hidden musical treasures at The Music Store. These small shops (and many others) are what make West Portal such a tight-knit community. The Stern Grove Festival takes place every summer just outside of the southwest section of West Portal. Each Sunday from the beginning of June through mid-August, locals and tourists gather for a day of music, food, and fun. Even when the festival ends, there is still plenty to enjoy and explore at the Sigmund Grove Recreation Center including an off-leash dog park, several outdoor athletic courts and fields, a playground, and the Tracedro House, which is reservable for private events. Enjoy the best of easy commuting and fun activities when you live in West Portal!
