This lovely flat is ideal for executives,scholars,or vacationers who want to stay in a beautiful large flat and enjoy bay views of San Francisco. One of the most celebrated neighborhoods and world renown, the Gourmet Ghetto is within walking distance. This area is known for the high concentration of fine eating establishments including Chez Panisse by Alice Waters, the Cheese Board Collective, as well as the first ever Peet's Coffee & Tea. Gourmet dining, sidewalk cafes, bakeries, coffee houses, wine shops, boutiques, artisan home decor, galleries, and flower stands all lend the area a European ambiance.
