About the owner: Emily is a San Francicso native, biologist/environmental activist. Dan is a software entrepreneur. We are both semi-retired. We live in the house where Emily was born and raised, which is next door to the rental.
Why the Owner Chose Potrero Hill: When we moved back into my wife's home, we built the rental house for parents, family and friends. It was custom designed to take advantage of the views and to make guests comfortable and happy. Now we have decided to open the house for others to enjoy as well.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Potrero Hill is our home. We enjoy the quiet, the warmest weather in SF, the instant access to freeways and public transit, the proximity to Downtown, the Embarcadero, and the Mission District, and the many parks and gardens (some with panoramic views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Marin, and NW SF). The Hill offers a wide array of local independent shops and gourmet restaurants, all minutes from our home.
