High speed wireless Internet, just bring your laptop to access movies and shows online or use your Netflix account on the TV.
This flat is in a three unit building with a separate entry door.
The flat is on the ground floor with the front door to the studio in the courtyard. Entrance to the courtyard is through a garden gate.
Parking is relatively easy in our area! We are a few blocks outside of the
restricted 2 hour parking (so you can park all day if you need to)
and we are in a residential area.
There is street cleaning one day a week, so you just have to check the signs.
Occasionally, you may need to park a block or two away, but we can provide
a map showing the next easiest places to park if that ever happens.
When we lived there, we had 2 vehicles, and never used our garages
(it's a 1939 building and they are a tight squeeze!). It was never a problem and we could regularly park within a block.
Don't forget to 'curb your wheels' on hills (any slope). There is a law in SF that you need to turn your wheels 'into' the curb (so that if your car came out of park for any reason, it would not go rolling into the next vehicle or down the road).
A leisurely walk to Golden Gate Park (De Young, Cal Academy, Japanese Tea Gardens, Botanical Gardens, Playgrounds, Buffalo, and so much more). Time your visit just right and be walking distance to one of the amazing and sometimes FREE music festivals such as Hardly Strictly Bluegrass.
N Judah Line (1 block away) - straight ride to downtown area.

About Anne McGinty
I am from Atlanta, GA and my husband is from the Bay of Islands, New Zealand. After attending Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut, I worked in Australia and traveled in New Zealand where I met my husband! We love San Francisco and loved living in the Inner Sunset. We have recently relocated to Sonoma County to raise our growing family and enjoy coming into the city periodically to walk the neighborhoods we know so well.
We originally lived in the Inner Sunset, then moved to Pacific Heights (which is also a great neighborhood, but with a completely different feel) and ended up moving back to the Inner Sunset. The Inner Sunset has a great location and is a wonderful neighborhood for living like the locals do. There are local restaurants for every budget from $-$$$$. And, we love being near Golden Gate Park because we enjoy the green space on a much more regular basis when it's right there!
Anne McGinty purchased this apartment in 2008
Why Anne McGinty chose Sunset District
We started our family at this building in the city and used to live in the top floor. With a growing family, we decided it was time for a little bit more space. But, this building and neighborhood is close to our hearts! The house was built in 1939 and we have tried to retain much of that charm. We painted the exterior of the building in 2014 from a peeling and old white to vibrant sky and ocean blues. In 2013, we added solar panels for the entire building. Little by little, we have been improving this property because we love it, the neighborhood and our neighbors! And, we hope you do too!
What makes this apartment unique
We fell in love with the space and how light and airy the place feels. Sometimes the Inner Sunset feels like one of the undiscovered neighborhoods of the city - it's GREAT and recently some very established boutiques and restaurants have decided to join this increasingly popular spot. The Inner Sunset is the main neighborhood for anyone working at UCSF, including new interns and residents! It's down to earth and you can grab a burrito for $5, but it also has some of the best award-winning restaurants in town including Ebisu (Japanese) and Marnee (Thai). There is an increasing list of delicious restaurants: Nopalito (Mexican), Pasion (Peruvian), San Tung (authentic Chinese), Social (Brewery), PPQ (voted best pho vietnamese in SF). So, you can eat on the cheap or go out for a slightly pricier dinner - go on a date or go out with your family! We love the peace and quiet with the close proximity to the boutiques and restaurants... It makes for a great walk home after dinner.
