Sea Cliff home is 'turnkey perfection'
Updated 9:03 pm, Friday, October 11, 2013
Set near the middle of San Francisco's Sea Cliff neighborhood is a light-filled Spanish Mediterranean home merging practicality and luxury. The 2,400-square-foot four-bedroom home at 287 28th Ave. dates back to 1919 and includes a rear deck, decorative arches and a designer kitchen. Most important, the home is completely move-in ready, said Betsy Linder of Pacific Union Christie's International Real Estate, who is listing for $2.285 million.
"It's totally turnkey perfection," said Linder. "It's light. It's airy and it has great flow."
A Ficus tree dominates the front garden and a sandblasted glass front door opens to the foyer and living room. A wood-burning fireplace with black brick surround plays off the Dado baseboards and decorative crown molding.

"It's an easy, flowing house," Linder said. "I feel like I'm on vacation whenever I'm in there."
Behind the home are a deck and grass yard offering a mature tree and a swing.
"It's an oasis," Linder said of the deck that overlooks the homes and palm trees of Sea Cliff.
Top-of-the-line kitchens are common in luxury homes, and 287 28th Ave. is no exception. Viking appliances and a wine refrigerator are among the kitchen's amenities.
Located on the top level is a light-filled master suite that looks out at the vibrant front yard and Sutro Tower beyond. Dual closets provide ample storage space, while a remodeled bathroom and window box complete the luxurious bedroom.
Additionally, the top floor includes two bedrooms and a remodeled full bathroom and half-bath.
The lowest level of the home features a laundry room with a new washer and dryer, office alcove, family room and a utility room with extra storage. A full bathroom completes the ground level, which includes a one-car garage.
