THE PLACE:

This 1100 sf house is a “must see” to appreciate all the upgrades and finishes in this tri-level contemporary chic home. It is nestled in the heart of Noe Valley one of San Francisco most desirable neighborhood and home of many famous Silicon Valley entrepreneurs. The house is a short 3 minutes walk (we timed it) to 24th street to get your morning cappuccino from one of the cafes or have dinner in one of the great restaurants - There, you will find many fine food markets, ice-cream parlors, juice bar, a candy store...

The house has clean lines, high ceilings, hardwood floors, open floor plan with a great flow. An updated kitchen opens up to the formal dining area that is perfect for entertaining while preparing meals. The kitchen features a classic 6-burner O’Keefe & Merritt gas range and oven, Bosch and LG appliances, plenty of storage space and a deep farm sink.

THE BEDROOMS:

The house has 4 small bedrooms + an additional den adjacent to one of the bedrooms that can be used for extra sleeping.

- BR1 sleeps 2 - The upstairs bedroom is an open space loft-like bedroom with a king size bed.

- DEN sleeps 2 - The den is adjacent to the upstairs bedroom and has two twin beds. Although the bedroom has no door from the stairs, the entrance to the den has a door. The slanted ceiling can be challenging for really tall people but kids LOVE the hiding nook.

- BR2 sleeps 2 - The main floor garden side bedroom is all windows and has a queen size bed.

- BR3 sleeps 2 - The main floor street side (small bedroom) has a single bed with a trundle that doubles it into 2 singles.

- BR4 sleeps 4 - The downstairs bedroom is also open plan with no door. It has a queen bed and a queen size futon. The 2nd bathroom is located in that floor.

GARAGE:

There is a garage but not available for parking. But you can park in the driveway as long as your are not blocking the sidewalk - Hard to believe, there is plenty of free street parking. Just watch for street cleaning days.

BACKYARD:

There is a spacious backyard with two decks. The deck next to the house has a gas barbecue grill and an outdoor dining table.

The second deck in the back of the backyard has a TINY finished cottage with a desk and a day bed. Because it is away from the house, it is quiet and great for an afternoon nap or some quiet work.

BASEMENT:

Nothing much interesting there, except that it is were the brand new washer and dryer are.

SOME OTHER FEATURES:

High ceilings

Bright and cheerful, multiple skylights bring in plenty of natural light

Hardwood floors on main level, carpet in the upstairs bedroom

Murano glass light fixtures and custom chandelier in dining area

Modern upgrades to bathrooms

Contemporary kitchen with name brand appliances

Kitchen Island provides a great space to entertain or for casual dining

Gourmet kitchen with 6 burner gas stove and dual ovens

Dishwasher

Microwave

Large custom buffet

Dual sinks in bathroom

Washer and dryer in the basement

Additional storage in basement/laundry room

The spiral staircase may be a bit challenging to very small kids but my kids as toddlers were fine going up & down the stairs as long as they hold on to the rail.

There's a space upstairs for young kids to play

With some toys & games. You may request other items & I'll see if I have them.

Guest Access:

-The room you're renting is your domain. You also have access to the kitchen, main bathroom, living room and deck outside. You do not, however, have access to the other bedrooms.

-If renting the entire house, you have access to the whole house

Interaction with Guests:

We love to meet guests and sit down for coffee if they're open to it. But we also respect their privacy. We will be there to answer any questions. We are out during the day and come home late, but we can make time if requested. As we are long-time SF residents we can point you to restaurants, sites or tips on how to get around like a local...

The Neighborhood

Noe Valley is one of San Francisco's most desirable and safe neighborhood. It is filled with a mix of Edwardian and Victorian houses. It is a wonderful, lively place. We recommend hanging out at the Saturday morning farmer's market on 24th street. Locals are friendly, approachable and laid back.

About Alexandra Veyrac

We've lived in this house for over 10 years. Alexandra and kids split their time between here and the wine country while Olivier lives in the house full time. Alexandra, an artist, pastry chef and interior decorator has lived in San Francisco most of her life. Olivier is originally from France. He has been in the States for almost 20 years. He is an independent Business Development Consultant for several high tech companies both locally and internationally. We both enjoy the wonderful things the city has to offer such as its restaurants, museums, shops and the bay and feel very fortunate to be living in this beautiful, diverse city.

Alexandra Veyrac purchased this house in 2000

Guestbook comments from the owner

HELLO!

During my family's stay at your home, we enjoyed every moment spent there.

From the first encounter to our check out, you both were very accommodating

to any of our request. Unfortunenately, we did not get the pleasure of

meeting you, Olivier, in person, but thank you for corresponding to me in

such a timely manner. Alexandra, you welcomed us in your home and provided

us with great recommendations within the area. This was the first time

booking a vacation home and because of such a wonderful experience, I hold

high standards to any other place we may visit. I hope to visit San

Francisco again and would not hestitate to contact you again. Thank you

again for an unforgettable experience!

Sincerely,

Alyssa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Alexandra's lovely home the weekend of my daughter's wedding. The house easily accommodated six, bridesmaids, the bride, me and the father of the bride who found enough room in the house to escape all the female activity. Alexandra was very accessible and hospitable.

Great family stay!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a long weekend at Alexandra and Olivier's home and had a wonderful time! They were very helpful with tips for kid friendly activities and restaurants (even favorite dishes!) and the house is well equipped for family with kids of all ages. The floor plan is very open and spacious, including the bedrooms two of which are loft style with no closing doors. Great for intimate groups.

We enjoyed our stay here immensely and comfortably fit 8 people with room to spare. A perfect intergenerational home.

Thanks!!

Perfect for large group!

  • 5 of 5

10 Golden Girls stayed the weekend to share our 50th College Reunion at USF. The house was perfect, well stocked with amenities and close to 24th Street restaurants and shops. The circular stairway was the only challenge but we managed to be cautious and remain safe! The group was totally satisfied with this renovated, lovely home!
