About the Property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 4 Baths, (Sleeps 8+)

We are a family of five who have lived most of our lives here in San Francisco. We have also traveled extensively and love to stay in the local neighborhoods in apartments or homes.

We love San Francisco and the uniqueness of each neighborhood. When we decided to raise our kids in the city, we
prioritized the ability to be close to restaurants, outdoor activities and the ability to walk/bike ride around town. Our place is not only very central but is is also in the flats which makes it very easy to just open the door and start walking to the inevitable activities and adventures the city offers. Plus, should we decide to drive somewhere, there is a calming factor of knowing we can just pull into the garage when we get home and we don't have to worry about finding a parking spot.
(Pictures of property may not be exact).

Keywords: This spacious, light filled home is located in the heart of Cow Hollow and features four bedrooms and four full bathrooms. Extensively rebuilt in 2000, the combined kitchen / living / dining room has vaulted ceilings, skylights, and a fireplace, making it the perfect space for entertaining guests or for a quiet dinner at home. Adjacent to this living area is a south-facing patio with landscaping and a water fountain where sunny afternoons can be enjoyed. The master bedroom suite includes a fireplace, walk-in closet, large soaking tub, and another patio. There are three additional bedrooms - two upstairs sharing a 'Jack and Jill' bathroom - and a separate fourth bedroom (used as office) with an adjacent bath. The upper bedrooms have access to a deck with great views of the Golden Gate Bridge. On the lower level, just off the main entrance to the home, is a wonderful entertainment space with a pool table and a separate, quiet movie/game/play room.

Car: Not Necessary

This location is in the center of all Northside activity and a fantastic home base for those that want to see san Francisco and the broader bay area, Napa, etc. A car is literally optional as most places can be reached by walking, biking or taking the bus. Incredibly easy access to the Palace of Fine Arts/ Exploratorium, the Presidio, the Disney Museum and to bicycle over the Golden Gate Bridge and have lunch in Sausalito. You can walk or bus to Chinatown and North Beach and Lombard Street....and so much more. You are literally a football's throw to the famous 'Triangle/Balboa Cafe' and in between Chestnut and Union Streets-where you will find San Francisco's best restaurants and night life. Never a dull moment and a fantastic location to experience SF in a very 'locals' way.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We are a family of five with three boys under 12. We are Bay Area natives and very proud of our city. We love 'playing tourguide' and would be happy to brainstorm around fun things to do in SF. We have traveled a bunch and know how great it is to stay in homes around the world and have a local contact to bounce ideas off of.

Why the Owner Chose Cow Hollow, San Francisco, CA, USA:
Location! Location! Location! It is crazy how close to everything this house is. When inside, it is a quiet oasis and cozy home and then when you open the front door you are instantly in the heart of all activity, restaurants, near parks, libraries, bike paths, etc. On top of that, there is no need to find a parking spot (as the house has an attached garage) or worry about feeding meters/getting tickets/moving your car. Also, Cow Hollow has some of the best weather in SF.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love our home as there is a 'great room' that gives us space to be together, play games and have friends over. It is 3300 sq feet and has a downstairs level that will entertain all types of people for hours. There is a pool table, foosball, and a movie room that is also a great escape. The house is spacious and has 'together' space but there are also plenty of nooks to escape to if you want to be alone. My favorite escape is taking a book to the outside balcony with a view of the GG Bridge.
