San Luis Obispo Bungalow Rental Photos and Description
1929 Mission Revival bungalow, 2 bedrooms, 1 bath
The house has kept it's charm while at the same time being updated. The size was increased when I bought it in 2000 and is designed to live off a courtyard protected on all 4 sides making it very private. It is on a deep lot which allows for it to be one-story. The kitchen is the heart of the home with room at the counter for 3 as well as 2 comfortable chairs and an ottoman. The range is a new dual-fuel Thermador. Two bedrooms each have their own character; both have queen beds with special mattress and pillow covers for extra protection. There are flat-screen TVs in each. The bathroom has just the right amount of vintage appeal with the original aqua color tile but the rest of the room is all new and improved. The living room is furnished with traditional pieces around the fireplace should you want to use it on a cold or foggy day on the coast. The house really lives off the back where there is a welcoming courtyard with a heater attached to the umbrella pole. Run the fountain if you like to hear the sound of water while you are relaxing. You are just a 10 minute walk from the center of San Luis Obispo in a quiet residential neighborhood.

About Karen Wren Mead
I have lived in SLO for 30+ years. My children are grown and live away and I have no pets. I love that I can walk out the door on a moments notice and lock the house and gate behind me. I am spending more time away at this point and rather than have my house stand empty, I have decided to let it out. It is still my primary residence and the things that are in it are very dear to me. The 2 big chairs and ottoman in the living room came from my childhood home (they've of course, been reupholstered!). A drop leaf table was my mom's and a secretary belonged to my grandmother. I personally needlepointed the seats of the dining chairs, there is art scattered throughout. There are pieces from my travels accessorizing each room. I hope that people who chose to stay in my home appreciate and respect it and feel as comfortable in it as I.

Why Karen Wren Mead chose San Luis Obispo
About 15 years ago I read about the movement to live in a downtown, whether it be Chicago, New York or a smaller city. The idea really appealed to me since I was living just south of town and as the area was growing, it was taking longer and longer to make the drive in to do errands.
After I began looking, it took over a year to find the house that spoke to me. However, this one I loved was too small at only 1100 sq. ft. so I added on and in so doing, got a large, modern kitchen. There is also a master suite at the back of the house but I will be keeping that locked off. The rest of the house is yours to enjoy!
What makes this bungalow unique
I chose this home because it is in the desirable neighborhood called the Anholm Addition. I have a copy of the building permit from 1929. There is a neighborhood market/deli and a little hidden park. A few blocks over on Foothill Blvd. there is a supermarket, gym, 2 coffee venues, Jamba Juice, multiple casual eateries and a wonderful independently-owned movie rental store. If you go the other way, you are equidistant to downtown with shopping, restaurants, theaters, etc. It is handy to the freeway coming both from the north and south yet there is no freeway noise. The neighborhood is friendly, relaxed and good for walking or biking.
