About the owner: The house was built in 1912 and has been expanded and remodeled several times over the years. My late wife and I have been renting this apartment in the building to occasional guests for 14 years. I am retired and live in another part of the building.
Why the Owner Chose Noe Valley: I have owned and lived in this house for 29 years. I appreciate the neighborhood for the quiet and walking to restaurants and shops. Public transportation is close by that takes me downtown in minutes.
The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast: I love walking up to my home. The house is referred to as an English cottage and is very welcoming and freshly painted in yellow with green trim.
