Property description

With out a doubt, this house is in the absolute best neighborhood/location in all of San Francisco. Imagine living directly across from the iconic Eiffel Tower in Paris or the Forum in Rome with a shimmering lake in the foreground! This beautifully restored Marina home has every bit of that and even more! Directly across from your living room window remains the last structured remnant of the 1915 Panama Pacific worlds fair: 'The Palace of Fine Arts,' or 'The Fine Arts Palace,' as it was once referred to. This fair was an epic event that commemorated the completion of the Panama canal and the rebirth of San Francisco from the disastrous 1906 earthquake and fire. The exposition consumed the entire marina district with structures, many of which were abandoned after the fair, leading it to be referred to as the 'Phantom City.'

With many of its luxurious amenities, this home offers 3000 sq ft of living space over three floors. The fully stocked large eat-in chef's kitchen has a Sub Zero refrigerator and Wolf Range. The spacious deck located off of the kitchen leads to the beautiful backyard where the entertainment room is located. Sliding doors open to the covered patio with barbeque, fireplace and dining table. The entertainment room features a 65 inch flat panel TV, beer dispenser, microwave, refrigerator, dishwasher and half bath.

The master bedroom has a breathtaking view of the Palace of Fine Arts and features a California king bed, walk in closet, flat panel TV, and blackout curtains. The master en suite bath features double sinks and heated tile floors. The second bedroom offers a king size bed, couch, and large closet/lounge area. The third bedroom has a full size canopy bed. Luxury linens and Turkish bath towels.

The romantic dining room/library has a crystal chandelier and shimmering silver walls. Enjoy a wonderful dinner or relax and peruse our library.

The living room is elegant, luxurious and irresistibly comfortable. Lounge by the fireplace and enjoy a glass of wine while being mesmerized by the breathtaking Palace View.

Retreat to the study to unwind and watch the latest movie or favorite show on the large flat screen TV.

This well-appointed home has all the amenities and location that one would need for an enjoyable San Francisco experience. You will have access to all entertainment systems, including Apple TV, TiVo, full cable line up, wireless internet, and Sonos music system throughout the home.

No parties or gatherings are permitted beyond the number of registered guests (6) allowed to stay. We are in a quiet neighborhood and want to respect our neighbors.

Please have a completed VRBO/HomeAway profile before requesting a reservation. In your request, tell us more about yourself and each guest who plans to stay and your plans during your visit.

Car: Not Necessary

Located in the Marina district of San Francisco, one of the most favored neighborhoods in the city and it's just ten minutes by car to Union Square but worlds away from the hustle and bustle. This makes it a perfect location that is truly second to none in San Francisco. The area boasts the finest weather, shopping, dinning, and social scene the city has to offer. We are just down the block from the local yacht harbor, beach and outdoor recreation areas, and a short distance to the famous Golden Gate Bridge. We are within walking distance to Fisherman's Wharf, Pier 39, Ghirardelli Square and Presidio National Park.
