This darling cottage (with gourmet kitchen & heated patio) is perfectly located 1.5 blocks off Fillmore Street; steps from fine dining, high end shops, neighborhood eateries, a gourmet grocery store, public transportation, and one of the city's best parks.
On the main level of this single family home, you'll find a newly renovated gourmet kitchen with counter seating for 3-4 that opens to a light-filled living room on one side and directly to the rear, a unique covered heated patio (complete with Lynx grill) with a dining table that can seat 10 comfortably.
Two bedrooms (master with a queen bed, and a kid's room with a twin bed) and a full bathroom with tub complete the main floor.
Downstairs is the third bedroom / den, with pullout couch, built in stereo and flat screen tv, and a newly remodeled 3/4 bath (stand up shower, no tub). The washer and dryer are on this level.
What makes this home so unique is its perfect location: 1.5 blocks from Fillmore Street, .5 to 1.5 blocks to 3 bus lines, 1.5 blocks South of Alta Plaza park, and a quiet setting. Double-paned windows, no upstairs or downstairs neighbors, and this one block alley (with little to no traffic) ensure that you'll have a peaceful night's sleep after exploring all that this city has to offer.
You'll have full use of the house, including washer/dryer, gas grill, internet, tv, etc. Please note that this is our primary residence and there will be clothes in the drawers and closets, as well as food items.
Interaction with Guests
If anything should arise, we will be accessible via cell, email, or text; likely 1.5 hours outside of SF in the Napa Valley at our weekend home. We have close neighbors on standby who can help in an emergency.
