Mason from the front and master bed-room. - beautiful recently re-modeled, 3,750 sq. ft., 2-story, 4 bedroom, 4 bathroom home with garage, features large, well-appointed rooms, natural light from large windows on all levels, a scenic garden with a koi pond, patios for dining.

Two families with children could enjoy their privacy, yet comfortably share amenities such as spacious breakfast and dining areas, living and master bed-room views of the Bay, Alcatraz, the Golden Gate Bridge and Ft. Mason. For families, corporate executives, professional groups, wedding parties, this location is perhaps the most convenient in SF. Though very near public transportation, many will prefer to walk or bike to dinner at such world class restaurants as Gary Danko, A-16, and Greens, shop the nearby farmer's market for fresh vegetables, grab a coffee at the Starbucks around the corner, pick up groceries at the market, or explore the many close scenic attractions - Presidio Park, Fort Point, Palace of Fine Arts, Disney Family Museum, Fisherman's Wharf, the Cannery, North Beach. You will also be within an easy walk of the many charming shops and exciting nightlife on Chestnut and Union Street.

Layout: The main floor includes a spacious entryway, formal living room with views of the Bay, a powder room a large open space where a formal dining area, kitchen and breakfast areas flow into each other. The house is WiFi enabled; with cable, HD TV, plus a landline for free local calls. French doors open onto a patio with a dining table and chairs plus a gas BBQ. Stairs lead to a large, well-established garden. A bank of windows look out over the tree and flower-filled garden and the fish pond. Additionally, a back interior staircase allows for a secure, back entry/exit to a separate, ground floor apartment (available at additional cost), the garage and Marina Boulevard.

A gently curving staircase opens to the top floor which features 2-bedrooms with full bathrooms en-suite, and two additional bedrooms which share a full bathroom. The master bedroom provides views of the Bay.

This magnificent house is located about half a block from the Golden Gate Yacht Club, the site of about half of the America's Cup events, and also the spectacular July 4th Fireworks Celebration. A group could happily enjoy festivities with little effort. One could participate by watching out the living room window, or a short stroll across the street would put you in the heart of the action.

About Virginia S./Brian Tseng

My husband and I purchased this house many years ago and raised our children here. We loved the beauty and convenience of the location and the size and floor plan of the house. Meaning, the living areas are all on one level and the bedrooms on another, the garage enclosed below. After extensive re-modeling we intended to sell, but could not let it go! Since this is one of the most desirable neighborhoods in the city, we believe that others will enjoy the experience as much as we have, and decided to provide this opportunity.

I also have a friend, Brian Tseng helping me as a co-manager for this property, so you may also hear from him in response to any inquiries.

Virginia S./Brian Tseng purchased this house in 1996

Book Club celebration

  • 5 of 5

Our book club (6 members) rented this wonderful Marina home for our 30th anniversary celebration in San Francisco. There was plenty of room for all (at our age we all want our own bed!) and the location was perfect for our exploration of the Marina, the Presidio, Golden Gate Park and downtown. Comfy relaxing space for our book discussion and an absolution stunning garden to enjoy.

Distinctive and spacious, with Bay views from the living and dining rooms, this re-modeled 3-story home is in a prime SF location for locals and vacationers. Across the street from the Bay, a site of the America's Cup Sailboat Races, it features views of Alcatraz, the Golden Gate Bridge and Crissy Field. This single-family home is situated for maximal convenience for travelers. Safeway and Starbucks are one half block away. Within blocks are Ft.

Along the way, see the Golden Gate and the St. Francis Yacht Clubs, and the Palace of Fine Arts. These sites can also be reached by taking the #28 bus from the bus stop around the corner.
