Castro apartment description

Our central location gives you the best of everything. You can readily visit all the San Francisco tourist sights or go to Moscone Center for a convention. You can walk to famed neighborhoods like Haight Asbury and the Castro. Public transportation takes you everywhere you want to go. When you walk out of the building you will see beautiful skyline vistas. You will feel like you belong here. Our studio apartment is traditional San Francisco. The space is cozy and warm with abundant sun and natural light. The bed is a custom designed murphy bed that disappears into what looks like a wall cabinet. The living room has three of the most comfortable overstuffed chairs you will ever sit in. You will have a desk and an adjustable desk chair for your needs; we supply free Wi-Fi. For just hanging out, there is a new HD TV with free cable, including HBO. The apartment’s original art deco style is enhanced by a designer dresser, custom wall shelves and artist created mirrored clothes rack. Newly refinished oak wood floors add to the apartment’s richness. Our full separate kitchen has the original tile work. The shower is framed in original art deco tile (no bathtub). The apartment’s walk in closet provides a perfect separate place for all your belongings.

The kitchen has lots of counter space, table for two, a microwave, a gas stove with gas oven, a toaster oven and coffee maker. When you arrive, you will find freshly ground coffee beans and tea.

Our apartment is in the middle of an active neighborhood, in the physical center of San Francisco. Public transportation from our location is the best in town. There are three MUNI bus lines and the MUNI light rail within a two block radius. You can easily get anywhere on MUNI public transit from our location. The historic F line that features vintage street cars and goes from the Castro to Pier 39 is only a ten minute walk away. The Castro Theater, Haight Ashbury, NOPA, Duboce Park, Buena Vista Park and Golden Gate Park are all within easy walking distance. For your eating pleasure, you can walk and wander to Thai, Vietnamese, Mexican, Chinese, Indian, French, Mediterranean, vegan or seafood restaurants. Or, you can go to the local cafes for an omelet, coffee or a salad.

Truly, you may very well leave your heart here, in the heart of San Francisco.

          Location

          Car: Not Necessary

          Located between desirable neighborhoods of Castro, NOPA, and Haight Ashbury. Walking distance to each. Close to exciting restaurants and shops. Located in the physical and trendy center of the San Francisco with Public transportation to anywhere in the city from Ocean Beach to Downtown.

           

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 1976

          About the owner: I love this building and have lived in this building on and off for the past 37 years. Now that I am retired, I am back.

          Why the Owner Chose Castro:
          I have seen the neighborhood morph into one of the hippest in the city. San Francisco is a beautiful city. This apartment is at the very physical center. You can walk minutes to Castro, Haight Ashbury or the new NOPA neighborhood. The restaurant scene is fabulous with diverse offerings from all corners of the world. This area was recently featured in the New York Times May 6 2012 NOPA travel article. Truly close to anything your heart desires.

          The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
          The building is a solid Art Deco design built in 1940. I wanted to share how wonderful it is. For the first time I have fixed the apartment up with vacationers in mind. This apartment is the perfect spot to go out and hit the restaurant scene or to relax and soak in San Francisco or to use as a base while visiting relatives.
