Property description

This is our main residence and we are happy to offer it to guests of San Francisco during the time we are traveling. It is a very spacious and tastefully furnished house on multiple levels. It is in the southern part of town, very close to both 101 and 280, as well as 19th Avenue. Closest BART station Glen Park is 3-4min drive away. SFO airport is 15min to the South, the Ball Park and the Ferry Building are 12-15 min to the North.

The house is located halfway between two neighborhoods with their own distinct character - Glen Park and West Portal. Both offer a variety of restaurants and a short drive North will bring you into Noe Valley with yet more choices. San Francisco is - for some surprisingly - a rather small town, so a short drive will get you into a very different neighborhood within just minutes.

The beach is 12-15min away from the house. And if you want to leave the car behind, bus #23 will take you there without any changes.

And now about the house...
Large living room with a fireplace invites you to kick up and discuss the events of the day. Floor to ceiling windows as well as skylights fill the upper level with light. The living room offers sweeping views to the South - on a sunny day on one side you will see the ocean, on the other - the Bay.

Beautifully remodeled kitchen with all necessary appliances and tools. Adjacent breakfast room with a most unusual and fun feature - a huge white wall you can draw on! Beautiful patio just outside offers a quiet spot to relax in a retreat atmosphere. Large dining room with lots of space and a large dining table that can accommodate 8 people comfortably for a formal meal.

The spacious master bedroom with a Cal King size bed is on the top floor and has a large bathroom in suite. Beautiful views from the balcony.

Two newly remodeled and spacious kids bedrooms on the lower level - one twin bed in each and a bathroom right in front.

The house is unusual in the sense that there is plenty of room, yet only four proper beds - 1 Cal King and 2 Twins. There is plenty a lot of space though to put an additional mattresses or two, and there are two couches. Let me know the size of your party and I will respond with suggestions.

Car: Recommended

A few restaurants (French, Italian, Thai, American) are available in downtown Glen Park - 3min drive down Bosworth street or 10-15min walk.

Another dozen are available in West Portal, 7-8 min drive to the West of the house, as well as in Noe Valley, another 7-8 min drive to the North.

Our favorites s are:

Le P'tit Laurent on Diamond and Chenery, French

Regent Thai on Church strat 29th street, Thai

Eric's on Church str at 26th, Chinese

K's kitchen on Monterey and Ridgewood, Japanese

Tartine, Guerrero and 18th, French bakery - fabulous!

Bus 44 stops 3 blocks away - it will take you straight to Golden Gate Park and will deposit you in front of the De Young Museum.

BART (local fast train) has a stop in downtown Glen Park - it takes you to the city center (Union Square or the Ferry Building) in 10min. Parking is difficult in San Francisco, so leaving the car behind is not a bad idea. Walking to BART is 10-12min, the walk back to the house will take 15min as the street has two blocks of steep incline.

Highways 101 and 280 are very close - while you hear none of the noise the on-ramp is 2min away. The Ferry Building is 15min away by car. SFO airport is 15min.

The Zoo and Ocean Beach are 12min away by car as is spectacular Fort Funston. Bus 23 will take you straight there in 20min.

Twin Peaks outlook - not to be missed! - is 5min away. Glen Park, a beautiful natural canyon, is 3 blocks down the street.


Owner info

About the owner: We are a family from Europe - after many years of living at different places, San Francisco won our hearts and became our home. We are a family of four - Stoyan is a software industry professional, Irina has her own fashion design business (you can search for Paisley and Stripes) while Helen and Julia attend Chinese American International School. We recently moved to a new home 5 blocks away and can be of help on a short notice. We'd be very happy to share our knowledge of the area with our guests.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house has huge windows and lots of a skylights, so even on a grey day it is still filled with air and light. Beautiful views. And lots and lots of space.
