About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Modern, Loft Like Home In Quite And Hip Neighborhood

Designed by Bay Area architect, Johnathan Feldman, this is a light filled and spacious 3 bedroom home of 2200 square feet. There are TWIN SIZE beds in the both the children bedrooms and a king size bed in the master bedroom.

There is a walk in 6' shower and steam room as well as a bath tub in the master bathroom and a shower in the second bathroom. There is a large office on the second floor loft area which overlooks the garden and double story glass windows.

On the ground floor is open plan with a large, comfortable living room with 60' TV and built in surround sound. The gourmet kitchen which is fully equipped and overlooks the dining room and garden. There is a large playroom adjacent to the dining room with comfy bean bags, a play table and plenty of toys & books.

The playroom and dining room overlook a simple, little garden with a swing, grass and shady trees. A perfect spot for a mid day picnic of evening cocktail.

Our home is on block from Cortland St shops and restaurants, close to holly park and public transport and a few minutes to the Mission district.

Our home has been featured in numerous interior design blogs and magazines around the world. As designer owners, we are constantly moving furniture around, changing wall colors and switching things around. We will keep the photographs as up to date as possible :-)

*****Please note that we are unable to accommodate more that 4 people; I often get requests for parties of 6-8 adults and this is just not feasible in our home with 2 TWIN beds and 1 KING bed. This home is also our primary residence, so, we will not rent it out for any events, bachelor or bachelorette weekends.******

About melodie

I'm French, grew up in South Africa and have lived in San Francisco for the past 24 years. I work in interior design.

Our home was one of the first homes built on Bernal Hill back in 1865. We renovated the house in 2006 adding 800 square feet of living space in a modern loft like style with an open floor plan on the main floor and a central office space on the first floor.

melodie purchased this house in 2006

Why melodie chose Bernal Heights

We chose this neighborhood because of its charming, quaint and family friendly vibe. Bernal Heights is filled with creative people who have a passion for their community and neighborhood. Its a bit like a village right here in San Francisco!

What makes this house unique

Our house is filled with light! We have a massive skylight centrally located on the top of the stairs which bathes top floor, the living room and kitchen with light during the day and offers a beautiful view of the night sky and moon in the evenings.

I love to throw a kantha cloth quilt out on the grass in the back, lie down under the trees and relax on warm sunny afternoons, or sit on the back deck in the early evenings listening to the soft sounds of the neighborhood sipping a glass of sake(thats my thing!)

Beautiful Light Filled Modern, Family Home In Hip Bernal Heights!
average rating of 5.0 based on 2 reviews

Beautiful home, ideal location, every comfort.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of two couples shared this home for a week and were thoroughly pleased with it. The owner had taken great care to leave it spotless and amazingly de-personalized such that we never felt we were intruding on private space (which one often feels in this sort of rental). We are all veterans of house rentals and we all agreed that this one was the best we've ever had. One final note: even on a typical foggy summer day in San Francisco, the house was indeed light filled. Both architect and decorator can be proud of this abode.

A bright, open planned stylish house in an inner suburb

  • 5 of 5

The house is an architectural beauty with light streaming in at different times of the day. The styling and art work were tasteful and modern yet comfortable. The kitchen was well-appointed and the house roomy with three bedroom, bathrooms and large dining room/table. It was a quick walk to the local shops with a strip of trendy cafes, restaurants, groceries, and the like. Local transportation was also an easy walk. There was room to park our rental car off-street which was a bonus. We would stay here again and would recommend it to others.
