About the Property

1 Bedroom, !.5 Bath, Two-Story Custom House, City and Bay Views, Quiet, Privacy

Located on sunny Potrero Hill, this two-story, stand-alone custom house combines luxurious living with a convenient location and spectacular views.

The owners live next door.

The house was built in 2000. It has 1 bedroom and 1.5 baths and sleeps 2-4 people. It is fully furnished with designer built-ins throughout. The rental is a stand-alone two-story house.

You will be welcomed with a complimentary bottle of California wine, seasonal fruit and flowers from our organic garden, and a selection of gourmet coffees.

Upstairs, you will find an open plan living/dining/cooking area with vaulted ceilings, wood paneling, powder room, balcony, and wide city and bay views.

The gourmet kitchen includes a glass top stove, oven, microwave, dishwasher, and large refrigerator/freezer. All countertops are granite. There is also a granite table in the dining area.

The living area has a comfortable reclining window seat, futon sofa bed, and a 40 inch flat screen 'smart' TV with cable. It opens onto a balcony with panoramic San Francisco skyline and views of SF Bay, the Bay Bridge, Oakland, Berkeley, and the East Bay hills. The balcony also overlooks our large garden where you can watch hawks, humming birds, migrating song birds, and even the famous San Francisco Parrots.

The downstairs master suite has a queen bed, with garden, and East Bay views, and a full bathroom ensuite (including large granite counters and a view from the shower). Closet and drawer space are ample. The owners provide hand soap and shampoo as well as all towels and bedding. All tbedding is professionally laundered.

It is a 10 min drive to SF's two most renowned farmer's markets featuring local organic produce, meats, seafood, and crafts. We are also 10 minutes from the historic Mission District. It is 5 minute drive to UCSF Mission Bay, SF Design Center, ATT Baseball Park (Home to 2010/12/14 World Champion SF Giants!) and a 15 minute drive to SFO.

Plentiful street parking is available (with off-street parking also available for an extra fee) and there is a bus stop across the street for easy access to San Francisco's attractions.

The rental offers a high efficiency washer/dryer in the garage, high speed wireless internet and flat screen TVs upstairs and down with cable, and telephone with free local service.

No pets and non-smoking.

Car: Recommended

Sunny Potrero Hill is one of SF's most charming and quiet neighborhoods.

There is plentiful public transportation for access to all of San Francisco's attractions.

 

Owner info

About the owner: Emily is a San Francicso native, biologist/environmental activist. Dan is a software entrepreneur. We are both semi-retired. We live in the house where Emily was born and raised, which is next door to the rental.

Why the Owner Chose Potrero Hill, San Francisco, CA, USA:
When we moved back into my wife's home, we built the rental house for parents, family and friends. It was custom designed to take advantage of the views and to make guests comfortable and happy. Now we have decided to open the house for others to enjoy as well.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Potrero Hill is our home. We enjoy the quiet, the warmest weather in SF, the instant access to freeways and public transit, the proximity to Downtown, the Embarcadero, and the Mission District, and the many parks and gardens (some with panoramic views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Marin, and NW SF). The Hill offers a wide array of local independent shops and gourmet restaurants, all minutes from our home.
