Richmond apartment description

This bright, Lake St. Family-friendly Garden Apartment, with it's beautiful garden and patio, is centrally located in a quiet neighborhood that is close to everything (public transit is just 1 block away).

The apartment is located on the ground level of a fully renovated 1912 Edwardian house, with its own private entrance off tree-lined Lake Street.

Great location right across the street from a kid-friendly/dog-friendly (slides, swings, play structure, dog walk) park with tennis courts and a lake. Presidio National Park hiking paths are also across the street. Beach is a 15 min walk, as is the De Young Museum and Golden Gate Park. Bike across the Golden Gate bridge and be in the Marin Headlands in 20 minutes. Clement St. restaurants and shopping are only two blocks away and public transit is just a block away (including express buses to downtown in the morning).

The Apartment is newly remodeled and fully-furnished. There are new carpets throughout, and new tile flooring in the full kitchen with dishwasher, garbage disposal, microwave, stove, and refrigerator. The kitchen with a dining island opens onto the living room; the doors open out to a bricked in garden that's perfect for outdoor dining or relaxing. The main bedroom, has a queen-sized bed and the second bedroom is furnished with a bunk bed with full-sized bed on the bottom and twin on top.

Wireless DSL is free as well as a land phone line. The bathroom is tiled with a vanity and shower. A full-sized washer and dryer is also provided. There is a Pack-n-Play and high-chair available for those with very young children. Parking is on-street (permit is provided).

The apartment is in a safe residential location just steps away from a wide-variety of restaurants and shops.

No smoking. Sorry, this is NOT negotiable.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 1995

          About the owner: After years of traveling internationally, we decided to settle down in San Francisco. It's now been (hard to imagine!) over 20 years. When we had kids, we also decided that it would be a great place to raise a family. We have not been disappointed. And as time goes on, we find that living in SF, especially the Inner Richmond/Lake St. is about as perfect a spot as we could imagine.

          Why the Owner Chose Richmond:
          We choose the location because of a combination of factors: it's quiet, safe, close to parks, public transit, and walking distance to restaurants/shopping/etc.

          The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
          Our Garden Apartment is really ideal for couples or smaller families with two children - both young and old. The apartment is located right across the street from a park that kids of people who have stayed here call the 'greatest park in the world'. Maybe a bit of an exaggeration, but if you have kids who like to swing, climb, or just feed the ducks, it's wonderful. The location also turns out to be incredibly great - basically 15 mins from everything, including the new California Academy of Science and the de Young.
