This luminous and gracious home is a sanctuary of calm set among the trees of Forest Hill, one of San Francisco’s best-kept secrets.
The heart of the home is the serene chef’s kitchen. Flooded with light, its treetop vistas create a sense of quiet seclusion, while gorgeous CaesarStone countertops, a six -burner, dual oven range, and tons of storage provide all the functionality a serious home chef could want.
A grand foyer leads to the living room which combines period details like a wood-burning fireplace, multi-pane windows and plaster ceiling moldings with LED recessed lighting. The dining room and attached sunroom look out onto the terraced garden below. Also on the main level are two spacious and well-separated bedrooms. The larger bedroom, with an ensuite bathroom, study-cubby and seating alcove, could easily accommodate beds for two younger children and still have room for play. Upstairs, an airy ante-room – idea as a home office or nursery — leads to the master bedroom suite, whose vaulted ceiling and clerestory windows create a space of dramatic volume. The walk-in closet is a delight, with bespoke shelving and ladder.
A wide staircase leads downstairs from the main level to a media room that opens through French doors to the deck. Plenty of room here for barbecue and outdoor dining. Directly accessible from the deck, a stone path winds between mature plantings and two level, grassy terraces to a shady bench below.
Forest Hill is an enclave of residences set along curving, tree-lined streets. Despite its tranquil location, 33 Marcela is only a 5 minute walk to the Forest Hill MUNI station and a five minute drive to the commercial centers of the Inner Sunset and West Portal. The Glen Park BART station and access to I-280 is just a 10 minute drive away.
