Steel yourself before reading forward; this gorgeous Spanish Revival will most surely break your heart. Located in Monterey Heights—a tiny enclave bounded by Westwood Highlands, St. Francis Wood, Westwood Park, Balboa Terrace, and Mt. Davidson Manor—a well-preserved/renovated circa-1929 home lands on the market for a whopping, though expected, sum.
Featuring four bedrooms, two and a half baths, and 2,824 square feet, 180 St. Elmo Way benefits from a recent makeover while keeping period details intact. Highlights include the restored exterior with terra cotta tile stairs leading to the barrel-front arched turret.
Inside you will find a wood-burning fireplace with original tile, barrel ceilings, hardwood flooring, a renovated kitchen and baths, and a tiered garden in the rear. What once was a lovely yet humble single-family house is now, like the majority of homes in the city, a space reserved only for the elite.
Speaking of which, asking is $2,675,000. Expect the final price to come in well over that amount.
