Metallica guitarist trying to sell 2nd Sea Cliff mansion at $3M discount
When you’re standing on the terrace of 320 Sea Cliff Ave. overlooking cliffs tumbling down to China Beach and the vast Pacific Ocean, you don’t feel like you’re in San Francisco.
This elegant 1926 Spanish Colonial is one of about 20 homes with a waterfront location in the prestigious Sea Cliff neighborhood at the Golden Gate.
“It’s like being on vacation,” says listing agent Mark Levinson of Pacific Union. “It’s like going to Big Sur or Carmel.
Tucked behind a gated courtyard entrance, the four-bedroom, five-bathroom home is one of two Sea Cliff properties famed Metallica guitarist and multi-Grammy winner Kirk Hammett once called home.
Hammet first listed 320 Sea Cliff in 2017 for $16 million, then dropped the price a couple times before pulling it off the market. Hammet also owned neighboring 308 Sea Cliff that sold for $12.8 million in March. Now, 320 Sea Cliff is back on the market for $13 million.
The home has 5,200 square feet spread across three levels—all with large picture windows on the westside to take in the sweeping ocean views. Original details throughout lend to the home’s Mediterranean charm including a wood ceiling in the foyer, wrought iron chandeliers, a grand curving staircase, and gleaming hardwood floors.
The kitchen was remodeled with granite countertops, white subway tile, a large island and six-burner stove with two ovens. A breakfast nook is surrounded by bay windows with more jaw-dropping views.
d the posters in, I would always make sure I had a guitar and amp in that room for if they inspired me to play,” Hammett told the magazine.
A huge portion of Hammett’s collection was moved to the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, Mass.
