Twice a week, The Chronicle features a home on the market that caught our eye for its architecture, history or character. More photos: www.sfgate.com/columns/walkthrough.

Address: 2800 Lake St., San Francisco

Asking price: $3.499 million

Description: Dominating a corner lot in the picturesque Sea Cliff neighborhood, this four-bedroom Mediterranean home offers alluring curb appeal and a welcoming interior. A brick patio leads to the arched entry door of the tri-level house that includes a finished basement. Once inside, grand architectural elements like wainscoting and beamed ceilings are illuminated by the natural light pouring through dozens of windows. Task lighting beneath the hardwood cabinets and commercial appliances make the kitchen functional, while tile work and stone counters provide the aesthetics. Dominating the top floor, the master suite includes a bathroom with spa tub and glass shower.

Don’t miss: The public rooms. Divided windows in the living room frame neighborhood views, and a wood-burning fireplace with hardwood mantel warms the space. Coffered wall panels and dentil molding give the light-filled formal dining room stately grandeur.

Built: 1921

Square feet: 2,960
