Alamo Square guest house description

'Wonderfully unique' - just two words that only touch on the elegance and wonder that this unit invokes. A wonderful mix of both modern and antique furnishings adds the perfect touch to this unit's design, as do the stained glass windows found throughout the apartment. Both bedrooms are set very far apart ensuring privacy within your party. The kitchen is complete with beautiful wood cabinets and is sunny and spacious. There is a large family style kitchen table along with a dining table for those quiet dinners at home, or you can enjoy the evening on the quaint garden patio. The unit also offers a backyard with two ancient Sequoia redwood trees. Your stay at this beautiful unit will not be forgotten! The washer and dryer are shared and coin operated; the laundry room is located on the 1st floor.

It has been said of this building that it is 'one of three of the most significant architectural dwellings in San Francisco'. 'If San Francisco is the Rome of the colorist Movement, Alamo Square is the Vatican. The Square is the heart of the greatest collection of Painted Ladies and one of the most important collections of Victorian buildings in the world. Although it doesn't have a Saint Peter's, it does have an Archbishop Mansion.'
