Property description

This apartment is located in the Marina district of San Francisco. It is ½ a block away from the Marina and beach. It has a view of Alcatraz from the living room and is on the second floor of a quiet, 5-unit building which is fully secured. It has hardwood floors throughout and a fully stocked kitchen. You can walk to Fisherman's Wharf, Palace of the Fine Arts, Crissy Fields, Golden Gate Bridge, Chestnut Street, Union Street and much more. The location is the best in San Francisco!

The sunny kitchen has a breakfast eating area, a gas stove & oven, refrigerator and microwave. The kitchen also has a small sun porch located at the rear of the condo which leads downstairs to an outside patio area and a no-charge washer and dryer. The kitchen is fully stocked with kitchen supplies including a coffee maker and tea kettle.

The spacious living room has an HDTV high-definition flat screen 48' TV, hardwood floors and amazing views of Alcatraz Island. The condo has free, high-speed wireless internet cable access.

The bathroom includes a glass-enclosed shower over a full soaking bathtub.

Free washer and dryer is located downstairs and accessed through rear sun porch off the kitchen.

The master bedroom has a new California King bed, which is very comfortable and a large walk-in closet. The bed linens are all high-quality, 100% combed Egyptian Cotton with 600 thread count. Two sets of french doors lead from the bedroom to the living room as well as from the bedroom to the central hall way.

This condo is located within walking distance to excellent, Zagat/Michelin rated restaurants located nearby on Chestnut Street (about a 5 minute walk). There are also a number of very hip and cool nightclubs located within walking distance up on Chestnut Street as well as Starbuck's Coffee, bakeries, and great shopping. Union Street is about a 15 minute walk away. The Marina Safeway is a pleasant 5 minute walk away. Crissy Fields beach is one half a block away and features breathtaking views of the Golden Gate Bridge along the promenade. (This is a view that is truly beautiful!). Also within walking distance is The Palace of the Fine Arts and Pier 39.

Car: Not Necessary

The condo is in the Marina just one half a block away from the beach. The Marina District is one of the most upscale and desirable neighborhoods in the City. Crissy Fields Beach is absolutely beautiful and includes a promenade which runs along the beach with stunning views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz Island, bike paths, picnic areas with BBQ's, lunch and coffee spots and pier fishing. You can also walk to the Palace of the Fine Arts (about a 10 minute walk) the Powell Street Cable Car pick up station and Fisherman's Wharf. Chestnut Street is a 5 minute walk away which has outstanding restaurants, cool bars, a movie theater and both boutique clothing stores and global brands. Trendy Union Street is a 15 minute walk away and has world-class shopping, restaurants, bars and personal services. Pier 39 is also within walking distance- about a 25 minute walk. You can rent bicycles and enjoy a scenic bike ride. Just head to the Marina Green, about 1 minute from the front door, and enjoy safe and wide bike lanes with no traffic to deal with. You can bike into the Crissy Field National Park (The largest natural city park in the U.S.) and ride along the beach right to the Golden Gate Bridge. Bicycles are on one side of the Golden Gate Bridge and pedestrains are on the other for safety and enjoyment. Walking or riding your bike across the Golden Gate Bridge is an absolute must do experience! One of my favorite day trips is to bike across the Golden Gate Bridge and ride into Sausalito. Have lunch in Sausalito which is a beautiful city full of great restaurants and art galleries. Then catch an afternoon ferry from Sausalito back over to San Francisco. You just park your bikes right on the ferry and enjoy a mini-cruise on the San Francisco Bay.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: I have lived in San Francisco for the past four years and am a huge SF Giants fan! I lived on the Peninsula for a time but am so glad to be back in SF. I attended San Francisco State University and have lived in a number of SF neighborhoods...I believe the Marina is the most beautiful, cleanest and safest neighborhood in the City. I hope you'll enjoy my home and neighborhood as much as I do! Staying here, you'll enjoy a quiet, clean home but I'm always close by in case you need anything. During your visit, I stay in the building in a separate sleeping room providing you with comfort and privacy.

Why the Owner Chose Marina District, San Francisco, CA, USA:
Some of the reasons I love this area and why I think you will too: you can walk to the beach and enjoy amazing Crissy Fields beach and promenade, excellent restaurants and bars are a 5-minute walk away on Chestnut Street, Safeway is just a 10-minute walk away. There are great biking paths as well as a movie theater, Apple store, spas and hair/nail salons within minutes from our doorway. Even though all these amenities are nearby, the neighborhood is very quiet and family-friendly. I own this apartment and it is in a building with 5 units total so it is quiet and very clean. Staying here, you'll experience what it's like to live like a true San Franciscan. While you are here, I stay in the building in my separate sleeping room so you have privacy during your stay.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The condo is charming with hardwood floors and a small sun porch at the rear. You can watch ships and sailboats as they sail on the Bay from the front window in the living room-truly beautiful! It is genuine San Francisco living at it's finest. Plus, on foggy evenings, you can hear the gentle sound of the fog horns on the Bay.
