Castro house description

Our spacious Victorian home was built in 1898. With its high ceilings and bay windows, you'll feel like a true San Franciscan. The house has a large comfortable living room and formal dining room with seating for 10. The large bright kitchen was just remodeled and includes all stainless steel appliances, convection oven, microwave, dishwasher and granite counter tops. Glass patio doors lead from the kitchen to our lovely level (unusual for San Francisco) and private backyard. The deck is perfect for relaxing and comes equipped with a gas barbecue, garden benches and a fire bowl. A custom-built tree house and swing set are perfect for children.

We have four spacious bedrooms which can be arranged to suit your needs, three on the upper floor and the fourth on the main level. A new luxury bathroom on the upper floor includes a large air-jetted tub, frame-less glass multi-head shower and enclosed laundry area. There is also a smaller full bathroom on the main floor. A mix of antique and contemporary furnishings makes our home a comfortable haven. We also have a TV/VCR/DVD/Blu-ray with surround sound and a CD/radio/stereo system that plays throughout the house or in one room. We have WiFi with high speed internet and cable TV. We have a one car garage which could be made available. We also have many amenities for children if you need them. We have wonderful neighbors and other friends close by to offer help if requested. This is our primary residence so it has everything you need to feel at home. We have one hypoallergenic dog that does not sit/lie on any furniture in the house and there is no smoking inside. Our home is a wonderful base to explore and enjoy San Francisco.

The house is ideally located between the lively Castro district and the historic Mission district. We're also a short walk to the 16th St Corridor with many fine restaurants and 24th St, the cozy commercial center of Noe Valley. Sightseers and SF residents come to our neighborhood for the sunny weather (no fog), culture, history and food. We are two blocks from Mission Dolores, the oldest building (1776) in SF and the oldest church in CA. Our home is a short walk from great ethnic Mission restaurants. We are also a couple blocks from the historic Castro Theater, Castro restaurants and nightlife. We are steps away from lovely Dolores Park with tennis, basketball, a children's playground and sunbathing depending on the season.

We are less than half a block from public transportation to all the major sights. It is a 10-15 minute train or car ride to Fisherman's Wharf (Pier 39), the historic Ferry Building Market, Union Square shopping, the ballet, the opera, museums, Ferry to Alcatraz and the SF Giants' New Ballpark. If you decide to eat in, there are multiple grocery stores within a few blocks. We are a short ride from the The Golden Gate Bridge, the Marina, golfing, surfing, miles of beach and everything you could wish to explore in San Francisco.

San Francisco is also a great home base for everything in Northern California. Napa/Sonoma Wine Country (1 hour); Skiing in the Sierras (2.5 hours); Sausalito (20 minutes), Muir Woods redwood forest (45 minutes). A short drive across the Bay Bridge gets you to Berkeley and Oakland. A short drive over the Golden Gate Bridge takes you to many points in Marin County. Beautiful Carmel and Monterey (Aquarium and Whale Watching) are only two hours away.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2002

              About the owner: Anthony is orginally from England and works as a structural engineer. I worked in financial services before becoming a full-time mom to our two children. Our daughter, Alessandra, is 10 years old. She is known for her near-constant smile and her voracious reading. Our son, Cole, is 8 yrs old and is a chatty charmer. Anthony and I have traveled extensively and we are looking to continue this with our two children.

              Why the Owner Chose Castro:
              This is a wonderful location to experience San Francisco - restaurants, night life, sun, close to the sights and the famous Castro neighborhood.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Location is very safe and convenient for walking to nearby attractions or catching a train into downtown to explore more of the city. Our house and yard are very kid and family-friendly. There are grocery stores, coffee shops and other essentials very close by. Street parking can be difficult - we have a garage you can use.
