Cole Valley condo description

This unique Cole Valley pied à terre has everything you need to make your stay in San Francisco both comfortable and convenient. Located on the most beautiful tree-lined street in Cole Valley, this completely renovated bi-level two bedroom, one bath unit encompasses the top floor in a quiet, three-story classic Victorian. This elegant living space is new to VRBO, and it is meticulously maintained by the owner. A smart, space-maximizing layout ensures comfort and privacy for two couples or one family (up to four adults, or two adults and three children). The first floor features a sunny and spacious hardwood hallway that joins a large eat-in kitchen with a spacious, furnished outdoor deck space, a queen-sized master bedroom, a full bath, and an elegant living room with a fireplace and an office nook. Upstairs, an airy, a-frame loft space boasts spectacular views from huge double sky-light windows. The loft can serve as a fully furnished sitting room, or can accommodate two adults in a brand-new queen-sized convertible bed. The length of the loft space can also accommodate an additional twin-sized aerobed. Luxurious details include new, one-thousand thread count sheets, down comforters and pillow top mattress pads, hypo-allergenic pillow covers, a HEPA air filter, a Brita water filter, and a fully-stocked kitchen with stylish dinnerware, plenty of wine glasses, modern stainless appliances, and a gas range.
Further amenities include high-speed wireless internet and cable television, a 37' flat-screen ROKU equipped LCD television in the living room, a 26' LCD TV in the master bedroom, with cable and a Bose wave radio in the kitchen.
The office nook has ample room for a laptop and papers (if you really do have to work!) and for a small fee we can make a laser printer available.

                  Car: Not Necessary

                  It's no longer a local secret that Cole Valley has become one of San Francisco's most desirable neighborhoods. We had our choice of neighborhoods to buy in, and as soon as we found Cole Valley we knew we were home. There is simply no other neighborhood that combines the wonderful eclecticism of San Francisco with the kind of safe, neighborhood feeling that we wanted. Centrally located between Golden Gate Park and UCSF, the prestigious medical research and teaching hospital, Cole Valley boasts easy access to all major tourist destinations via public transportation, but is within walking distance of all basic amenities. Both GG Park and UCSF are within three blocks of our flat.

                  Cole Valley is a unique San Francisco neighborhood with a sophisticated-yet-friendly local population of families, professionals, and 20 and 30-something hipsters. Even though you will want to take in all that San Francisco has to offer, you may find that Cole Valley's beautiful tree-lined streets, bustling cafes, gourmet food shops, and clothing boutiques are the most memorable part of your stay. After a flaky, freshly baked croissant and authentic cafe latte (served in a bowl) at La Boulange on Cole, you should plan your afternoon picnic at Golden Gate Park. Consider stopping by Say Cheese on for an unbelievable selection of gourmet cheeses and sandwiches, and if you forget anything, there's always Whole Foods directly across from the park entrance. On your way home you might want to try an old-fashioned cream soda at The Ice Cream Bar, where the soda jerks are serving up locally made, organic ice creams and artisinal sodas. After a massage and mani-pedi at Lavande, you might want to check out Grandeho's Kamekyo for some fantastic sushi. If you are looking for a fabulous Sunday brunch, cafe Zazie is always packed with a fun, fashionable crowd that turns up in droves for the famous French style egg dishes and sparkling mimosas. If you are considering a stay in Cole Valley, you won't be disappointed! It truly is the very best of San Francisco.

                  If you want to get around SF or the Bay area, you'll be pleased to find that the N-Judah light rail line is located one block from our flat. This line goes directly to AT&T Park (Go Giants!), Ocean Beach, Union Square, Market Street, the Powell Street Cable Car line and the Embarcadero. It connects directly to BART and CalTrain, enabling seamless travel to SFO, Palo Alto, San Jose, Berkeley and Oakland most of the East Bay. And less than a block away from our flat is an SFMTA bus stop, allowing connections to every neighborhood in the city. We prefer to use public transit to get around the city, since SFMTA is clean and fast.


                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2003

                  About the owner: Larry and Greta were educated at Stanford and Juilliard, and hold doctoral degrees in educational policy and music. As busy professionals who also teach, they divide their time between their home on the beach in Santa Cruz and their San Francisco pied à terre. Their interests include music, sports, travel, wine, and food.

                  Why the Owner Chose Cole Valley:
                  This Cole Valley pied à terre is a perfect urban living space that represents the best of what San Francisco has to offer. It's just enough space to be comfortable, yet is still easily maintained. The interior is colorful, sophisticated, and yet casual. The atmosphere is equally conducive to relaxing as it is to entertaining friends and family.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  The kitchen is the heart of any home, and this property is unique in that the kitchen is very spacious. The adjacent back porch is large enough to entertain 6-8 adults. It offers fantastic views of the city, but is sheltered by an enormous legacy pine tree that gives the space a feeling of privacy and serenity. The undated interior of the unit is tasteful and sophisticated, and the beautifully converted loft-space adds versatility and expansiveness, making it comfortable for two adult couples.
