Property description

Our AMAZING renovated seven-room, three-bedroom, 1.5 bath single family home in the Castro District in San Francisco is filled with original antiques and furnishings which provides an authentic Victorian experience. The property includes a private driveway with an automatic gate leading to a parking area that will accommodate up to 3 cars! Be aware that off-street parking is really essential if you’re traveling with a car in San Francisco – even if there is street-parking available, most residential neighborhoods limit non-resident parking to 2-hours.

The 4,000 square ft. garden with a detached garage, and potting shed is virtually unheard of in the City. The yard has a brick BBQ grill, and is filled with mature trees of all sorts including figs, avocados, and plums. The home was moved to its current location after the 1906 earthquake on a sled pulled by horses! The tool shed on the lower-level was originally the house’s horse stable, and was in use until the early 20’s. We purchased the home from the family that moved it to the property over a hundred years ago!

The front entry on the main-level leads to our beautiful living room with walls lined with photos of the original owners. Leaving the living room, you enter a hallway with a staircase leading to the upstairs bedrooms. Each room has a queen-size bed and is furnished with additional antique pieces. Adjacent to the living room you will find the dining room with a lovely round oak table that can be extended to seat six. Off the dining room is the third bedroom / office / media room with a queen-size sofa-bed, a 55” LED flat-screen television, HD cable, a Blu-Ray player, and a comfortable desk with an all-in-one printer for your use. Note: Although this is a 100 year-old home, it is equipped with all the electronic bells and whistles including a full automation / security system, and very high speed (50Mbs) WiFi internet access.

At the rear of the house off the dining room is a large “Julia Child” vintage kitchen which is fully stocked for cooking and entertaining. Just off the kitchen is a small foyer leading to a full bath and the staircase to the lower-level. On the lower-level there is a separate toilet, wash sink, and full laundry facilities. The laundry room leads to the former stable with access to the garden.

The garden is truly one of the best features of the property. It is literally a million-dollar lot that was never developed, and maintained as open space. This provides a unique tree-filled tranquil area that will make you forget you are in the middle of a bustling city!

Our home is on a tree-lined street in the heart of the San Francisco where you will find amazing shops, bars and restaurants. It is a wonderful area to explore on foot, and there is ready access to public transportation: Walk Score: 95, Transit Score: 98! The MUNI Metro Stop is 1 block away next to a terrific park with a great children’s playground; the Metro will have you downtown in 15 minutes. And, the historic F-Line, a short walk away on Market Street, will take you directly to the Ferry Building, Pier 39 and Fisherman’s Wharf. San Francisco Airport is 12 miles away and the house is easily accessed from the Highway.

We have lived in this neighborhood for over 25 years and we LOVE the area, and you will too!

We look forward to seeing you soon!

Our home is located in the heart of San Francisco's Castro District. Even though we are very close to the action, the house is on a quiet street directly across from the Valley Medical Center and 1 block to the Metro that can take you anywhere in the City within minutes. We have wonderful restaurants right outside our door!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Ken and I are always on the go! We are both in high tech, have 4 beautiful children and a granddaughter. We bought this house to preserve the land and the home.

Why the Owner Chose Castro:
This house was owned by my husbands long time friends and neighbor Lou and Marie. It had been in Marie's family for over 100 years. When Lou died we bought the house to preserve the land and prevent another San Francisco home from being destroyed. All of the remodeling was done by us and our friends and family who also care about preserving San Francisco.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love living in the Castro because it is so close to the highway, has wonderful restaurants, friendly neighbors, and is convenient to get to anywhere else in the City! The property is a fulltime rental!
