About the Property
One Bedroom, Centrally Located with Divine Views in San Francisco
Don’t miss a chance to stay in a classic, 1920s building in one of San Francisco’s hottest, local neighborhoods. Magnificent views of the entire span of the Golden Gate Bridge, the Bay and all the way to Marin are right outside the window. A panoramic 360 view of the entire city beckons from the roof top and the building has a small shared garden in the back.
This cozy, sun-drenched apartment has been recently remodeled with Brazilian Cherry wood floors, Italian marble in the bathroom and stainless steel appliances. The entrance is on a flat street and the building has an elevator.
Walk to the Bay, Marina Green, the Presidio, Chrissy Field, Fisherman’s Wharf, North Beach and Chinatown. Chic Polk and Union Street shopping, abundant music and dining are right outside the door. Some of the City’s best wine bars and stores are down the street. I am the editor of a magazine that covers wine and restaurants and will gladly share my insider tips. Great shopping and dining on Fillmore and Chestnut are also an easy walk. The Cow Hollow neighborhood has a walk score of 98 and is the perfect place to experience San Francisco as a native.
Urban hiking opportunities abound on the architecturally stunning Russian and Nob Hill. Running and biking paths along the Bay are just a few blocks away. Easy access to downtown museums, Union Square, the Embarcadero and shopping as several major bus lines stop right outside the building.
The apt has a fantastic kitchen and big fridge if you want to cook it. It also has a flat-screen TV, CD system, radio and DVD player. Wireless is included.
The Golden Gate Bridge and wine country of Sonoma and Napa are easy to access from this location. The area is full of delicious restaurants, from the high-end Gary Danko and La Folie to great little Vietnamese places and little cafes. A great, organic grocery store is down the street for all your cooking needs and you can walk to the Farmer's Market at Ft. Mason. So you can dine out a huge range of restaurants or cook in with top-notch ingredients during your stay.
This is a high-request property. I urge you to email as I am not always able to response to phone requests. This property is not suitable for children or anyone under the age of 18. Thanks.

My apartment is across the street from Russian Hill, which is the ultimate locals' neighborhood. It is full of everything classically San Francisco: great wine bars, restaurants, organic grocery stores, cafes, great shopping, urban hiking and biking and lots of live music. You can walk to amazing high-end and simple restaurants, great coffee bars, galleries and nightlife.
Please no not call if you are interested in renting the place. I can't respond to the number of calls I receive. If you are interested, pls email me and if the dates work I will get back to you.
It is an easy walk to top destinations like Fisherman's Wharf, the Marina Green, Chinatown and North Beach. Transit is easy to Union Square and downtown museums, as many major buses stop right outside the apartment.
Cow Hollow is upscale, safe fun and architecturally stunning. I am a national magazine editor and have written about restaurants and the wine business here for many years and wouldn't live anywhere else. I will be happy to provide you with my list of insider food and drink destinations.
Year Purchased: 2010
About the owner: I am a food and wine writer and magazine editor, who was raised in New York lived in Italy for many years. I travel extensively and didn't always love SF when I visited. The food and wine were always divine but I think some of that had to do with generic downtown hotel locations. From the time I moved to my current area I have been in love with this City.
Why the Owner Chose Cow Hollow, San Francisco, California, United States of America:
The minute I saw my apartment I saw what it could become. For me, it's my little paradise in the sky with views that inspire me to write all day long. Unfortunately our roof access has been restricted. However the views from my unit are almost as good!
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
This is my actual home and not a secondary one. So it is cozy: read lots of great wine and unique art. I hope to make your stay as fantastic as possible with my insights on dining, drinking, hiking and enjoying our city. I might even leave you a nice bottle of wine to drink!
