A gently curving staircase opens to the top floor which features 2-bedrooms with full bathrooms en-suite, and two additional bedrooms which share a full bathroom. The master bedroom provides views of the Bay.

This magnificent house is located about half a block from the Golden Gate Yacht Club, the site of about half of the America's Cup events, and also the spectacular July 4th Fireworks Celebration. A group could happily enjoy festivities with little effort. One could participate by watching out the living room window, or a short stroll across the street would put you in the heart of the action.

About Virginia S.

My husband and I purchased this house many years ago and raised our children here. We loved the beauty and convenience of the location and the size and floor plan of the house. Meaning, the living areas are all on one level and the bedrooms on another, the garage enclosed below. After extensive re-modeling we intended to sell, but could not let it go! Since this is one of the most desirable neighborhoods in the city, we believe that others will enjoy the experience as much as we have, and decided to provide this opportunity.

My son, Brian Spiegel i helping me as a co-manager for this property, so you may also hear from him in response to any inquiries.

Virginia S. purchased this house in 1996

A Perfect Weekend in SF

  • 5 of 5

We had a great weekend in this beautiful home. Eight girlfriends got together in SF and everyone had a fabulous stay! You couldn’t have asked for a better location. Some went to the Renegade Craft Fair at Fort Mason and some ran the Mermaid Series 10k which started on the Little Marina Green, and no one ever had to get in their car! So much beauty, good food, and exciting events and all within walking distance. The view from the front is gorgeous and the yard behind is peaceful and secluded. We will definitely try to stay here again!

This was a perfect place for our family of eight to celebrate our 50th annivsrsary. Fantastic.

  • 5 of 5

The property is in a perfect location--great views of the Marina and Golden Gate, lots of great places to walk and bike. A great way to enjoy San Francisco in the company of other San Franciscans rather than tourists. Close to lots of nice, local restaurants and stores. If you chose to live in San Francisco (and could afford to do so) this would be the perfect place to reside. (And, with the availability of UBER, you are 2 minutes away from a fast, inexpensive ride to anywhere in the city.)

The house itself is a delight--nicely decorated, 4 bedrooms, probably capable of sleeping 10 or 11 (we were eight). The owner could not have been nicer, more cooperative, or--and this is important--more available.

All in all renting this house was the best possible choice we could have made--it turned a great trip into a fabulous trip--the trip of a lifetime.

Beautiful house! Great location!

Everything was super easy from the check in process forward! Our group had a wonderful time! We utilized the heck out of the kitchen and the backyard garden with fish was perfect! Would love to come back and stay here again!

Perfect Spot

  • 5 of 5

This home was in the perfect location for everything. We left our vehicles parked in the front and walked or ubered every place we needed to go. The pictures don't do it justice!!

Best Spot in San Francisco

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for all your help in making our vacation a success. The house is actually a large, elegant, and stately manor, which combines period furniture and artwork with modern enhancements. We thank you for every effort that you made in getting us through the system glitch; you were more than accommodating in your response.

With some club members having relatives in the Bay Area, the floor plan of the house allowed us to entertain the relatives without negatively impacting the other club members who were lounging around in other parts of the house.

The location of the house is perfect for visiting everywhere in the San Francisco area. We visited almost every site in the tourist pamphlets. Some of us even walked to the Golden Gate Bridge. Alcatraz can be seen directly from the house. We were in the center of everything. Transportation costs, per person, were minimal. Our decision to select San Francisco was a win for each of us; selecting the house was a win on steroids!

A Pleasant Stay by the Bay....

  • 4 of 5

We were comfortable and enjoyed our stay. We were disappointed about the limited use of parking in the garage and the driveway. Sorry the front entrance lacked a pleasant entry.

Distinctive and spacious, with Bay views from the living and dining rooms, this re-modeled 3-story home is in a prime SF location for locals and vacationers. Across the street from the Bay, a site of the America's Cup Sailboat Races, it features views of Alcatraz, the Golden Gate Bridge and Crissy Field. This single-family home is situated for maximal convenience for travelers. Safeway and Starbucks are one half block away. Within blocks are Ft. Mason, Chestnut and Union Streets, sites of many and award winning restaurants (Greens, A-16). Gary Danko's (Fisherman's Wharf area) is an amazing gourmet experience. 'Off-the-Grid' novelty food trucks rather for Friday Night public events at Ft. Mason Center, across the street, a block away. Sunday mornings at Ft. Mason feature a Farmer's Market, and at night, often, award winning plays at the Magic Theater.

Along the way, see the Golden Gate and the St. Francis Yacht Clubs, and the Palace of Fine Arts. These sites can also be reached by taking the #28 bus from the bus stop around the corner.
