**** Looking for a place to say while running the SLO Marathon?! Our home is about a mile from the starting line and is on the route! Great for runners and the supporting cast. It's about a mile and 1/2 walk to the finish line if the team wants to come see you finish. We did this last year. Great event. *********************************************
I grew up in San Luis and probably didn’t really appreciate all it had going for it until we moved away for about 20 years. The Bay Area is nice, but there’s something about the small town vibes of San Luis that keep you from missing the Bay Area traffic.
We bought the DownTown house in 2013, rented it out for a year, fixed it up, landscaped it, and moved in. First time we had ever lived in a downtown location. We actually felt kind of hip at times.
If you’re looking for a quiet get away by a flowing stream, this may not be for you! If you want the urban downtown experience in a laid back town, in a cute early 1900’s home, and are ok with the city noises - then this will definitely work.
Here's a few high points.
A cute, old house. Early 1900’s. Maybe 1914. A lot of original character. Great old vertical grain doug fir floors.
Upgrades – Like a new kitchen. New appliances. Countertops crafted out of 100+ year old barn wood.
Forced Air including Air Conditioning. Funny you wouldn’t think you need this in SLO, but downtown can get warm. AC is a plus.
Inside laundry center. It’s small, but it’s a nice convenience not usually seen in these old homes.
Location – Right downtown! It’s a fantastic launching pad for visiting the city and county of San Luis Obispo. It’s just a 100 steps from the back door to a hip coffee shop – Black Horse. Four blocks to the hippest coffee shop – Scout. A block to the best tri-tip sandwich at Firestone Grill. A great park right around the corner. Great hiking right from the front door. Gus Grocery Sandwiches a nice 3 block walk. Terrace Hill is a 2 mile loop with great views of town. Wineries within 10 minutes. Beach within 15 minutes. Bike from house. Great road and mountain biking trails. Great local restaurants.
Farmers Market every Thursday evening. Best Farmer’s Market in California. A block from the house. Bike night follows on the first Thursday of the month.
Plenty of parking.
