Distinctive Sea Cliff Home - $3,695,000
745 El Camino Del Mar is a spacious, welcoming home on two levels, plus a partially finished basement with high ceilings that offers wonderful potential for expansion. The home has a lovely, traditional facade with gorgeous landscaping front and back. The formal entry ushers you into a large foyer with built-in shelving and flanked by the dramatic, curved stairway and leaded-glass windows. The floors throughout are a beautiful, rich-hued oak. The expansive living room is perfect for entertaining or just lounging by the warmth of the fireplace. The first floor also features a formal dining room, pantry, half-bath, and a kitchen with adjoining family room - a chef’s delight! The kitchen has a large storage/food prep island with second sink and bar seating, granite counters and backsplash, stainless steel refrigerator, microwave, Viking range with 6 gas burners, grill and stainless steel hood, Miele dishwasher, and custom cabinets. French doors from the family room lead to the serene, landscaped yard with bamboo, slate tile, and a mature lemon tree.
The upstairs can be reached via elevator or by ascending the grand, curving stairs. The master suite is north-facing and boasts wonderful views of the Pacific Ocean and Golden Gate Bridge. The master bath features a dressing area/walk-in closet and a bath with double sinks, stall shower, and separate tub for soaking. There are an additional three bedrooms on this level, one with an ensuite bath, and bedrooms 3 and 4 share an adjoining bath.
The home’s lower level offers lots of space and a wealth of possible uses. The 2 car garage with washer and dryer opens to the alley to the rear of the home, in traditional Sea Cliff style. There is space for additional parking in the driveway.

Stunning views of the Pacific as it pounds through the Golden Gate Bridge, the sweeping headlands of Marin across the gate, a wild and rolling golf course studded with towering cypress trees, and the open space of Lands End combine to lend the stately mansions of Sea Cliff a remote, wild feel. Stand on your deck in Sea Cliff; watch the fog roll in across the Headlands and you could convince yourself you are watching a scene in the Scottish Highlands. There is no place like Sea Cliff in the City.
With its massive multi-million dollar homes and expansive, manicured lawns, Sea Cliff maintains an air of privacy and exclusivity. Older custom homes reflect a fondness for Spanish Mission Style, French Beaux Arts, English Tudor, and Normandy style chalets. At the top of the hill overlooking Sea Cliff is Lincoln Park, with its immaculate golf course, and the beautiful Beaux-arts Palace of the Legion of Honor, a museum that showcases international art, popular exhibitions, and lectures.
Sea Cliff is perched above China Beach. A steep 104-step wooden walkway leads to a small, protected, pristine beach on the Golden Gate that is popular with families and young kids who frolic in the waters. Sea Lions bask on the nearby rocks.
Sea Cliff feels a world away, but a few blocks drive to the Outer Richmond, the retailers along Clement and Geary Streets provide plenty of shopping and dining opportunities.
