Alamo Square Apartment Rental Photos and Description

SPECIAL OFFER 15% DISCOUNT FOR APRIL BOOKINGS

'Wonderfully unique' - just two words that only touch on the elegance and wonder that this unit invokes. Designed by the world-renown architect James Francis Dunn in 1890, the building itself is a main focal point of both tourists and residents alike. Only 1 block from Alamo Square Park and the famous 'Painted Ladies' housing row, this apartment is in the heart of downtown San Francisco. However inside is where your stay in San Francisco truly becomes exceptional. This 7-room unit features elegant rooms, high ceilings with wood beams spanning across the living room, hardwood floors throughout, and wool area rugs. A wonderful mix of both modern and antique furnishings adds the perfect touch to this unit's design, as do the stained glass windows found throughout the apartment. Both bedrooms are set very far apart ensuring privacy within your party. The kitchen is complete with beautiful wood cabinets and is sunny and spacious. There is a large family style kitchen table along with a dining table for those quiet dinners at home, or you can enjoy the evening on the quaint garden patio. The unit also offers a backyard with two ancient Sequoia redwood trees. Your stay at this beautiful unit will not be forgotten! The washer and dryer are shared and coin operated; the laundry room is located on the 1st floor.

It has been said of this building that it is 'one of three of the most significant architectural dwellings in San Francisco'. 'If San Francisco is the Rome of the colorist Movement, Alamo Square is the Vatican. The Square is the heart of the greatest collection of Painted Ladies and one of the most important collections of Victorian buildings in the world. Although it doesn't have a Saint Peter's, it does have an Archbishop Mansion.' This Mansion is located a block away from the 'Belle' facing Alamo Square park and just up 1/2 a block are the famous 'Seven Sisters' seen in every collection of photos depicting San Francisco. 1347-45 McAllister Street was designed by James Francis Dunn, started in early 1898 and completed at the end of 1900. It was built in the French neo-Baroque style as a tribute to the owner's great love, an opera diva from Paris. He had 2 'Juliet'(as in Shakespeare's Juliet) balconies constructed that are similar to the Paris Opera House boxes even today. The front of the building has 4 winged mermaids and Grecian urns of mythological significance surrounding the 2 huge oval windows at the very top of the building, behind which is a grand ballroom with a panoramic view of downtown San Francisco all the way to Mt. Diablo across the Bay Bridge, as well as weary gods holding up the eves, and finally museum worthy stained glass sea shell windows with gems spilling out over the balconies. The entry way is a huge tortoise shell with a ruby heart above it said to be 'like the piece that frames m'lady-in-waiting at the French court'. The building is a feature on the Double Decker bus tourists route, as well as walking tours of S.F., and is to be found in coffee table books on San Francisco architecture, magazines, and newspaper articles. The 'Belle' survived the great 1906 quake as it is built on bed rock. Look up James Francis Dunn for more photos and other unique buildings he erected in San Francisco during his career.

This property is located in Alamo Square, close to the famous Alamo Square Park and its Victorian houses 'painted ladies' surrounding it. The park offers amazing views of downtown San Francisco. The public transportation in the area is very convenient and will take you downtown in 15/ 20 minutes.

Quiet Oasis near Alamo Square

  • 4 of 5
  • Submitted: Sep 10, 2012
  • Stayed: Jan 2012
A two-bedroom and one-bath quiet oasis near Alamo Square, and is one of the historic houses in the famous "Painted Ladies" district. Apartment has lovely antique furniture, comfortable beds, ample kitchen and charming leaded glass windows in the living rooms that shimmer in the sunshine. The outdoor garden is an added treat - winter and summer in San Francisco. We entertained our San Francisco friends and family there. It felt like home. Near the terrific Fullmore shops and Japan Town. #5 bus runs in front of the house taking you near the Ferry Building or to the Pacific Ocean. We look forward to retuning soon.

Great Location, Average Apartment

Alamo Square is a lovely area. It's 2 blocks from Little Star, home of the world's best pizza. The apartment is fine and clean, but not as nice as the pictures. It feels a bit dark and cluttered like you are borrowing someone's house rather than paying for a rental property. I am a frequent Homeaway renter and am usually delighted, but I was a bit disappointed in this rental. The housekeeping gets 5 stars but maintenance just 2. The outdoor area needs some TLC. Based on the photos, it was one of the reasons I chose the house, but in reality it was not very appealing. There is a washer and dryer, but it is not located within the apt and it is coin operated. Also the security code and key system the landlord uses really needs to be improved. We were able to find on-street parking every night, but the street is quite hilly (so remember to park with your wheels pointed to the curb or you'll get a ticket). Our vacation was splendid, but we only slept (good beds) and showered (good hot water) in the house and spent our time in the city and exploring Yosemite.
