Polk Gulch House Rental Photos and Description

Home, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Beautiful loft located on lower Nob Hill.  Cable car, Union Square and the Wharf are within walking distance.  Great international restaurants, shopping and theaters close by.  There is a private garage, and the house has easy access to Marin and Chrissy Field.

This is a brick building from 1914 that has been updated for the 21st Century.  This property was home to renowned interior designer Robert Hutchinson for nearly 50 years.  Mr. Hutchinson bought the property in 1961 and turned the first floor into his studio, while he lived upstairs.  The second story, where you will be staying, has seen many designs over the years.  Once, it was Chinese red, another time it was black.  When it was featured in Architectural Digest in 1986, the walls and ceilings were tan and the flat was filled with tribal art from around the globe.  There will be vintage magazines on site that show the projects of Mr. Hutchinson.

Upon inheriting this home in 2008, the property was retrofitted for earthquakes, all electrical was modernized, and two retail spaces reimagined from 2009-2011.  Presently, the home blends extraordinary pieces by Robert Hutchinson with a mid-century modern, urban vibe.  This original furniture by Mr. Hutchinson includes the dining room table, the black couch, the petrified wood display table, and the kitchen and bedroom tables.  Also, as the house was being remodeled, many elements were preserved from the '86 design, namely, the master bedroom suite with fireplace, the entryway and vanities in both bathrooms.

The flat is just over 2,000 square feet.  There is an enormous master suite and a smaller guest bedroom. The living room is spacious and the kitchen is state of the art.  There are two full baths and a roof top deck with orchids and succulent plants.

Pleasant convenient place for a visit to San Francisco

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and two friends stayed here for seven days. We very much enjoyed our stay. It is a mere 1.2 miles from Fisherman's Wharf and closer to Ghirardelli's Chocolate Shop! The living space is on one floor about 20 steps above street level, except for the back patio which is a few steps higher. There is an attached garage also at street level in the back which was very convenient. Also, there is laundry in the unit. Most importantly, the mattress was comfortable and there was adequate hot water in the showers. Very few negatives--there is no bathtub, only two showers. I was in San Francisco for a dance convention and never thought to ask if there was a bathtub to soak my sore feet. Also, oddly, there is no door to the master bedroom. Our friends occupied the smaller bedroom in the front of the unit but one uses a CPAP machine and the other gets up several times a night. After the first night I used ear plugs and that solved the problem.

I would highly recommend this unit for a stay in San Francisco.
