Overview

Duboce Triangle House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom, 1.5 Bath, With Private Parking in a Park-Like Setting!

Our AMAZING renovated seven-room, three-bedroom, 1.5 bath single family home in the Castro District in San Francisco is filled with original antiques and furnishings which provides an authentic Victorian experience. The property includes a private driveway with an automatic gate leading to a parking area that will accommodate up to 3 cars! Be aware that off-street parking is really essential if you’re traveling with a car in San Francisco – even if there is street-parking available, most residential neighborhoods limit non-resident parking to 2-hours.

The 4,000 square ft. garden with a detached garage, and potting shed is virtually unheard of in the City. The yard has a brick BBQ grill, and is filled with mature trees of all sorts including figs, avocados, and plums. The home was moved to its current location after the 1906 earthquake on a sled pulled by horses! The tool shed on the lower-level was originally the house’s horse stable, and was in use until the early 20’s. We purchased the home from the family that moved it to the property over a hundred years ago!

The front entry on the main-level leads to our beautiful living room with walls lined with photos of the original owners. Leaving the living room, you enter a hallway with a staircase leading to the upstairs bedrooms. Each room has a queen-size bed and is furnished with additional antique pieces. Adjacent to the living room you will find the dining room with a lovely round oak table that can be extended to seat six. Off the dining room is the third bedroom / office / media room with a queen-size sofa-bed, a 55” LED flat-screen television, HD cable, a Blu-Ray player, and a comfortable desk with an all-in-one printer for your use. Note: Although this is a 100 year-old home, it is equipped with all the electronic bells and whistles including a full automation / security system, and very high speed (50Mbs) WiFi internet access.

At the rear of the house off the dining room is a large “Julia Child” vintage kitchen which is fully stocked for cooking and entertaining. Just off the kitchen is a small foyer leading to a full bath and the staircase to the lower-level. On the lower-level there is a separate toilet, wash sink, and full laundry facilities. The laundry room leads to the former stable with access to the garden.

The garden is truly one of the best features of the property. It is literally a million-dollar lot that was never developed, and maintained as open space. This provides a unique tree-filled tranquil area that will make you forget you are in the middle of a bustling city!

Our home is on a tree-lined street in the heart of the San Francisco where you will find amazing shops, bars and restaurants. It is a wonderful area to explore on foot, and there is ready access to public transportation: Walk Score: 95, Transit Score: 98! The MUNI Metro Stop is 1 block away next to a terrific park with a great children’s playground; the Metro will have you downtown in 15 minutes. And, the historic F-Line, a short walk away on Market Street, will take you directly to the Ferry Building, Pier 39 and Fisherman’s Wharf. San Francisco Airport is 12 miles away and the house is easily accessed from the Highway.

We have lived in this neighborhood for over 25 years and we LOVE the area, and you will too!

We look forward to seeing you soon!

About Mary Nicknish

Ken and I are always on the go! We are both in high tech, have 4 beautiful children and a granddaughter. We bought this house to preserve the land and the home.

Mary Nicknish purchased this house in 2013

Why Mary Nicknish chose Duboce Triangle

This house was owned by my husbands long time friends and neighbor Lou and Marie. It had been in Marie's family for over 100 years. When Lou died we bought the house to preserve the land and prevent another San Francisco home from being destroyed. All of the remodeling was done by us and our friends and family who also care about preserving San Francisco.

What makes this house unique

We love living in the Castro because it is so close to the highway, has wonderful restaurants, friendly neighbors, and is convenient to get to anywhere else in the City! The property is a fulltime rental!

Thanksgiving Guest House

  • 5 of 5
We used Mary & Ken's house as a guest house for our family visiting from the East Coast for Thanksgiving. We live in the neighborhood, so this location worked absolutely perfect! The house was well stocked for hosting family, baking holiday goodies, and refreshing after long days out sightseeing. The location really is perfect, easy walking distance to everything you need. Mary & Ken (and the neighbors) were all very friendly and helpful. We will definitely book for out of town guests again!

Excellent location and super clean

  • 5 of 5
My family and my parents rented this house for five days in September. It was ideal for us (4 adults and two kids. Easy walking to lots of public transport and shops. It was nice to stay in a neighbourhood so we could feel like locals. Best of all it was super clean. Ken and Mary were really helpful as well.

Very Nice house and great owners who are involved

  • 5 of 5
We really liked our stay at the house. Ken and Mary are very involved with the property and communicated with us numerous times to be sure we were satisfied with the property. The neighborhood was safe and central. It was totally stocked. If we ever venture out there again, we will mostly likely stay there.

I posted a very long and glowing review of this property twice now. This is my third attempt so it's shorter because I don't want to keep typing the same thing over and over. Take a bike ride over the GG bridge, and then ferry back. Eat at Sotto Mare for the best seafood Cioppino you can imagine. Rent a car from Getaway and drive to Muir.

From the very first contact we received excellent service from Mary and Ken. They could not have been any more helpful, and this carried through the entire holiday. We were a family of four (grown up kids) visiting SF to celebrate my 60th birthday and we wanted to stay somewhere other than in an hotel. This place was perfect. It was really spacious, in a great neighbourhood and close to small stores, large supermarkets and all transport links. The parking was a godsend. Absolutely everything you could ever need was supplied. The laundry room was really useful as we didn't have to take too many clothes and so were able to fill our suitcases with our purchases! San Francisco was, as ever, wonderful and we all had a great stay. Thank you Mary and Ken for everything.

Owner's Response: Tessa and her family were great guests and just the kind of travelers we will like to host. They loved to explore and appreciated staying in a part of the city that many travelers don't get to experience. They were great at keeping in contact and left the house very clean. They are welcome back anytime!

We have wonderful restaurants right outside our door!
