About the Property

2 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom With Ocean View Close To The Beach

Original hardwood floors and many many furnishings dating from the early 1950's when Aunt Irene first bought this house. Enjoy the corner window with breathtaking views of the ocean and sunset.

Fabulous new kitchen appliances and granite countertop in the kitchen, along with a breakfast nook set in a charming 1950's style checkerboard tile floor.

The bedroom configuration is one with California King and one with a Queen bed. The living room sofabed also accomodates two, so up to six guests can spend the night.

There is a piano, fireplace (not to be used for fire) and a dining area.

The bathroom contains all new fixtures in the style of this 1950's era-home.

The backyard includes a deck with access from the kitchen and a stairway leading to a large open landscaped area filled with sand and polished pebbles. When you don't have the energy to walk one block to the beach, you can still enjoy the sand right in your own backyard!


There is a downstairs in-law unit which is rented out on a permanent basis. The in-law unit has its own entrance and shares the two-car garage but has no access to the upstairs unit when the doors are locked.

Location

Car: Not Necessary

The Sunset district is San Francisco's southwest quadrant and this house is located one block from the beach. Surfers and other beachgoers stream by the house every day in search of a glorious day at the beach. Many restaurants are within walking distance on Noriega Street, the main street in the district.

At the north side of the Sunset district lies Golden Gate Park, which contains many attractions and is larger than Central Park in NYC. At the south side of the Sunset district lies the San Francisco Zoo. The entire district spans almost 800 square blocks and features many of San Francisco's top-rated restaurants featuring cuisine from all corners of the world.

Access to downtown is readily available via Muni bus (the 71 passes by on Noriega Street) or via streetcar (the J or L cars are both within a few blocks of Noriega). All of these routes end up downtown, where you can walk to Chinatown, the Financial District, North Beach, Fisherman's Wharf, etc.

The City is a walker's paradise (and it can be a drivers' nightmare) so consider walking and using public transportation. Simply Google your desired location and follow the simple directions.

The house features a parking garage for one car if you choose to bring a car.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: I grew up in this house, which belonged to my Aunt Irene and Uncle Al, from the day they bought it in 1954 until I recently inherited it. I live in the area and want to enjoy this beautiful home myself from time-to-time. So a vacation rental is my way of sharing the pleasure I've gotten from this house with others.

Why the Owner Chose Sunset District, San Francisco, CA, USA:
Growing up in this neighborhood during the 1950's and 1960's, I recalled it being cold and foggy most of the time. To my surprise, for the entire year 2013 that I've devoted to remodeling this house to restore its prior glory, the weather has been beautiful. Sunny and warm each time I've come. The number of people walking past the house on their way to, or from, the beach has also increased dramatically as a result of the weather shift. That has led to more restaurants opening up nearby, producing a very lively neighborhood during the day and a nice quiet area at night.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
As time goes by, we will continue to add to the charm of the house by bringing in more personal touches, such as family photos of Aunt Irene, Uncle Al and others in the family tree. For now, enjoy the blond wood furniture that was so popular in the 1950s and that checkerboard kitchen floor.
