The Painted Lady: Classic 1880 Queen Anne Victorian Flat

Experience the best that San Francisco has to offer in this 1500 square foot, classic, Queen Anne Victorian flat. It is perfectly located in the "heart" of the city, and a short two blocks from Alamo Square Park (home to the famous "Painted Ladies"). Along with being dog-friendly, the city views from this park make it the most photographed and filmed location in San Francisco.

Also within strolling distance are trendy restaurants and cafes, great shopping, and interesting attractions, including the famous Haight Ashbury District and the Castro. Or use our public transportation conveniently located steps away to discover the rest of the city. Museums, theatres, and most other attractions are within a short bus ride.

A perfect choice for a romantic getaway, vacationing with family or friends, or for the business traveler. The flat offers a large master bedroom with luxurious bedding on a queen bed, a smaller bedroom with another queen bed with equally lovely bedding, and two new, comfortable sleeper sofas (one in the formal living room and one in the family room) each equipped with a feather bed top. All sleeping areas can be completely closed off from other rooms for privacy. If you choose to test your own culinary talents, our spacious and fully-equipped kitchen will offer you everything you need; including a formal dining area that seats eight.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2005

                  About the owner: Jim is a second generation San Franciscan and Janice certainly feels like a native after moving to this amazing city over 15 years ago. Having lived all over the city and experiencing the different personalities of each area, they decided to settle in the vibrant Alamo Square Historic District. This section of San Francisco has one of the highest concentrations of Victorian homes and they were thrilled to purchase their own "Painted Lady" 6 years ago.

                  Why the Owner Chose Other San Francisco Properties:
                  Although once an impressive 3 level single family home, at some point this magnificent 1880 Queen Anne Victorian mansion was tastefully divided into 2 units (with an absolutely charming apartment off the back garden added later). With our lab mix Brodie, we occupy the top level apartment, with the flat conveniently located on the first level. Given the ideal location for accessing all the sites of the city as well as what this neighborhood itself has to offer, we knew the flat would be a perfect vacation rental.
