Our 100 year old, Edwardian home has lots of character and space, with a modern, renovated kitchen, parking, dishwasher and amenities. We are walking distance to Ocean Beach, Golden Gate Park, Beach Chalet, Sutro Baths, and the charming Balboa corridor neighborhood with great restaurants, an art-house theater, and cute shops. Our place is comfortable and kid-friendly and good for couples, families (with kids), big groups, and furry friends (pets).
Our single family home is large and full of character, with a gorgeous penthouse master suite with ocean views.
It has 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, and is approximately 1,600 square feet. It was built in 1923 and, although well maintained, it retains the unique architectural details from that era, including the original, refinished hard wood floors and decorative moldings.
While the home is suitable for young children or a family, it also works well for adults or a small group.
The main floor has a wood-burning fireplace in the living room and a spacious dining area. There is a large, recently remodeled kitchen with a dishwasher. We recently bought a new stainless steel fridge and 5 burner chefs stove (not feature in the pictures yet). The guest bedroom has a sofa bed that can sleep two (although its cozy). The children's room has a bunk bed plus a trundle bed, to sleep 3. There is a queen bed in the master bedroom, as well as a day bed in the living room, easily accommodating 8 guests.
The second floor penthouse/master bedroom is reached by a metal spiral
staircase and offers panoramic ocean views, a gas stove, and the feel of a separate, private apartment. Top floor also has a separate office and an en-suite bathroom with a large walk-in shower.
The garage has a washer and dryer that also has a small workout area (elliptical machine and other equipment) and an adjoining driveway for off-street parking.
The yard has a large deck with a gas-grill, dining table, tetherball and
comfortable deck furniture, perfect for entertaining. Below the deck is a small, pleasant yard with plants and a children's play area (including a playhouse).
We have a mid-size flatscreen with Apple TV (hulu and netflix), a stereo system, 2 functioning turntables, and WIFI.
You will have use of the full house and you can park one car in the driveway.
Our cousin lives in a separate apartment on the ground floor and can be available to help you and answer any questions as needed.
There is an apartment downstairs off the garage occupied by our cousin and her small dog, who also share the yard with you. She is a great resource for you to help with the house and any questions you might have about the city.
This is a house we live in normally and rent while we travel.
We have a San Francisco Short Term Rental permit: STR-0002219. Possession of a short term rental certificate certifies that the registration certificate holder agrees to comply with the terms of the San Francisco Short-Term Residential Rental Ordinance (San Francisco Administrative Code Section 41A). This ordinance does not require an inspection of the unit by the City for potential Building, Housing, Fire or other Code violations.
Dogs allowed but must be friendly with other dogs. There is a small dog in apartment off the garage. You may see this dog in the shared yard on occasion.
Also, must clean up after dog to avoid cleaning fee.
