If San Francisco is Baghdad-by-the-Bay, its Sea Cliff neighborhood is Beverly Hills-on-the-Pacific. Sited west of the Golden Gate Bridge with views of the ocean, the Marin Headlands and the Golden Gate, the swank enclave exudes an other-worldly quality. And frankly, this listing does nothing to bring it back to earth. Which is not a bad thing. Built in 1927 and remodeled under the guidance of Ken Fulk in 2009, the 3-bed, 3.5-bath Spanish-Style house came on the market today, asking $6,995,000 and somehow, we don't see it languishing unsold. It's really an incredibly luxe 2-bedroom with a big master suite looking towards the killer view, a large second bedroom suite, plus a ground floor guest room- next to the garage, the media room and the wine cellar. The kitchen's just the right size and opens to a family room (probably the house's original dining room) and there's a suitably grand living room. The back of the house has been re-configured to make the yard more accessible, which shares space with the driveway, but they play well together. We'd be very happy in that glassed-in pergola looking out towards the bridge- even in the fog.
