This grand-scale, 4 bedroom, 4 bathroom, 2 powder room St. Francis Wood home offers an ideal configuration to accommodate modern families of all sizes with a spacious, open-plan main floor entertaining level, four ample bedroom suites, an enclosed home office, and an expansive back deck and rear lawn. Displaying plenty of curb appeal with multi-tiered front lawn terraces, a motor court, and an appealing modernized façade, 1365 Portola Drive is located in the prestigious St. Francis Wood residence park, which offers some of the finest architecture in the city, multiple parks, and scenic panoramas of western San Francisco. The home is fully detached with 3,307 square feet of living space, an oversized 6,372 square foot lot, and features a modernized gourmet kitchen; a flexible enclosed office / family room; and a 2-car side-by-side garage optimized with a Tesla Electric car charger and professional storage systems.
From the double entry doors, 1365 Portola Drive’s grand entry foyer leads to the stately living area with custom lighting, a central wood-burning fireplace, and ample sunlight from over-sized picture windows. An adjacent dining area flows to the back deck, outdoor space, and lawn – perfect for entertaining. The updated kitchen offers a breakfast dining area, ample custom cabinetry, quartz countertops, a tile back-splash, and premium stainless steel appliances with 5-burner professional gas range. A large guest bedroom with an updated en-suite bath and a convenient central powder room are also included on the main level.
Central to the home is a dramatic mosaic stone staircase that leads up to three additional bedroom suites. The primary suite offers a massive dressing room, a luxurious en-suite bath with dual vanities, and separate deep soaking tub and glass-enclosed walk-in shower with a blissful rain showerhead. The second and third bedrooms are well-sized and include wide closets with organizers and en-suite full baths.
Designed over a century ago by a collaboration of San Francisco’s most talented developers, planners, and landscape architects as a non-commercial residential park, St. Francis Wood is one of the city’s true hidden gems, offering double-size land parcels, an inspiring collection of world-class homes, several green spaces and four prominent parks for the private use of the residents and their guests. Its close proximity to fantastic West Portal shopping and dining destinations, San Francisco State University, Stonestown Galleria, and convenient transportation options — I-280, 19th avenue, and the MUNI Light rail — make this Portola residence an ideal family home in a coveted San Francisco neighborhood.
