Castro house description

Classic 1899 Victorian, steps from Dolores Park.

Recently fully restored top-to-bottom, the flat has two handsome bedrooms, each with a queen bed, with lots of natural light, two full bathrooms, living room, formal dining room, and large back patio with outdoor fireplace and manicured garden. The kitchen is a chef's dream -- a classic motif with modern amenities which include a six-burner gas stove, large refrigerator, lit cabinets and refrigerated wine cellar.

This upstairs flat is approximately 1,800 square feet (170 square meters), has 14-foot high (4.3 meter) ceilings throughout, and can accommodate 1-4 comfortably. Brand new amenities include washer, dryer, refrigerator, Direct TV Satellite and Wi-Fi.

Take a movie at the Castro Theatre. Stroll through Dolores Park. Have the best burrito or crepe or falafel in the Mission. Get fresh groceries and pharmaceuticals 24/7. All within walking distance. As is public transit -Muni, BART and the easiest place to catch a taxicab in San Francisco.

The Lower Level Studio (ground floor level) is also available *see ad 'Spacious Victorian Studio' listing # 207712

                  Great stay at this classic Victorian home in Castro District of San Francisco! 08/31/2010

                  VRBO Bear stayed here:


                  This classic Victorian home in the Castro District was the perfect “den” for our San Francisco getaway. Bear with the steps leading up to the entrance – the charming décor and modern furnishings are totally worth it!

                  Whip up a bowl of honey using the vintage style appliances in the fully-appointed kitchen, and enjoy a meal at the large dining room table in front of a Victorian fireplace. Step through the French doors, and warm your paws at the outdoor fireplace on a cool San Francisco night.

                  Our sleuth of bears took full advantage of the Castro area, enjoying local eateries, walking to nearby Market Street, venturing to the Mission, and taking in the views from the top of Dolores Park. Castro was also a great jumping off point to grab mass transportation to other well known areas. From fortune cookies in Chinatown to chowder at Fisherman’s Wharf, we were really able to take in all that San Francisco has to offer.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2006

                  About the owner: I'm a San Francisco resident since 1999 and appreciate the beauty and character of the historical homes of San Francisco.

                  Why the Owner Chose Castro:
                  Live like a true San Franciscan in an 1899 Victorian which is located in one of the most vibrant neighborhoods of San Francisco where you get the local feel, from the creative arts to the array of savory foods from the diverse ethnic restaurants.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  I love the local feel of the neighborhood. Dolores Park, which is around the corner is a great place to soak in the sun and people watch. A short walk to the Valencia Street corridor and I can find almost any ethnic cuisine to fulfill my palate.
