Owner info

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. On a quiet one block street but an easy walk to public trains/streetcar/buses. 10 minutes by public trans to Union Square, Embarcadero, Moscone, City Hall, and financial district. Nice outlook to garden. Designed with your comfort in mind. Leave your car at home and take public trans/UBER/Lyft (parking is a chore in this neighborhood).
