                  Year Purchased: 1986

                  About the owner: Avid gardener and cook. Crazy about Trooper, the resident Tibetan Terrier. We live on property.

                  Why the Owner Chose Castro:
                  Best weather and centrally located.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                  Quiet solitude but walking distance to two of the hottest areas in the city - 'the' Castro and 'the' Mission.

Designed with your comfort in mind.
