About the Property

4-Bedrooms/2.5 Bathroom SF Flat

We have owned this home since 1996. We lived there for 15 years (our daughter was only a year old when we moved in 21 years ago) and still use it as our second home in SF. It is our urban family home. We remodeled the place over the years and know every bone in this flat. When you do send in a request, please tell us about yourself. We like to know who our guests are. You do not want to be just a name, we like to know if you are coming for business or vacation and from where. How many people and if there are any children if a family vacation. When you get there, you will also feel like it is your vacation home as we have organized and furnished it to make you feel at home. When you arrive, you are WELCOME HOME!!
N.B. Our calendar is updated daily. It is unnecessary to inquire if a specific date is available as if it shows available on the calendar, you can assume that it is.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1996

About the owner: We have lived in San Francisco over 20 years. We are native French speakers. We have traveled all over the world and recently lived in Buenos Aires for one year. We have one daughter. We speak French and Spanish fluently, and can understand Italian. We currently live two blocks from the subject property.

Why the Owner Chose Western Addition, San Francisco, CA, USA:
We lived in the subject property for 15 years until we built our current home a couple of blocks away. We remodeled the subject property from scratch 17 years ago and we maintain an office on the premises. It is our second home away from home.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We love this home and so does our daughter. She hopes that one day she will live there. She grew up in this home. We love the airiness, the large living area where we have spent many years entertaining our friends.
