About the property

Location - location - location in this designer five room 1000 sq. ft. flat with gorgeous bedroom, living-dining room, modern bath, walk-in closet, dressing area, and gourmet kitchen which opens to a large back yard. It is located 1/2 block from Golden Gate Park and the N-Judah train to downtown and the beach, and Irving and 9th Street shops and restaurants.

Modern furnishings and designer touches in this art-filled 1912 Edwardian flat. The living, dining and kitchen look out to a large back yard. Entered through double arched doors, the bedroom has a turn of the century feel with large crown moldings, a stained glass window and fireplace (not operable) with a queen size bed, sofa and swivel chair. There is an entry room / library that can be used for yoga and mediation or as a work space. The flat has wi-fi access. There is a 42" HDTV and DVR in the living / dining room with Apple TV and a great DVD collection of classic movies filmed in San Francisco; a fully equipped designer kitchen with a professional gas range, refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave and appliances including a Keurig coffee machine and French press. A large walk-in closet is part of the modern bathroom and dressing area. The back yard is available for your use so feel free to have a small gathering or bbq with your San Francisco friends. There is a large Moroccan tile dining table that seats eight and a cozy seating area.

There are 13 steps from the street to the first level of the house where the flat is located. The large back yard is accessed from a small deck off of the kitchen. The garage, basement, laundry room, and the second and third floors are private.

The N-Judah train is the main East-West train in the city and will take you to downtown Union Square in 20 minutes. The N-Judah stops inbound in this order: UCSF Medical Center, the Haight Asbury, Cole Valley, Duboce Park / Castro, Van Ness (Opera and Symphony), Civic Center (City Hall, Asian Art Museum, transfer to airport BART train), Powell Street (Union Square), downtown financial district stations, and the Embarcadero (Ferry Building). It will also take you directly to the AT&T Ballpark, connections to the F -Line trolley to Fisherman's Wharf, and to Ocean Beach in about 15 minutes. There are also several bus line options for getting around to all parts of the city.

About The Owner

I've lived in San Francisco for 20 years, moving here from Santa Fe New Mexico via Philadelphia PA. In New Mexico I worked for a bed and breakfast, was a pastry chef, concierge and marketing director for a solar company. I graduated from Penn State University with a degree in Architecture and have been practicing as an interior architect on my own for 12 years. I'm a daily swimmer and enjoy biking around town, cooking, gardening and photography. I recently traveled to Hong Kong and Japan, Taos New Mexico, New York City, and to Marfa Texas to see the art installations of Donald Judd and Dan Flavin. I'm excited to host you in one of the most beautiful cities in the world!

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2006

This was a beautiful apartment close to so much. Steven was available whenever I had a question. The bed was comfortable, and the kitchen and bath were well equipped! I would recommend this place to anyone looking to stay in San Francisco. I didn’t need a car. I walked or ubered everywhere I went.

Lovely, beautiful apartment in a great neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is exquisitely decorated---it is friendly, warm, and filled with a number of small touches that make it delightful to stay in. The owner was terrific in communicating and making entry arrangements. The apartment is conveniently located close to the N-Judah, the Golden Gate Park, and a commercial district filled with restaurants and cafes. By far, this has been one of my favorite places to stay.

Great Flat in the Perfect Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I just finished our San Francisco vacation and stayed at this property. First of all, Steve was very responsive every time I emailed him with questions. We had a late arrival and I was a bit worried about finding the address and getting in, but it was seamless. The flat itself is beautiful and more spacious than it looks in pictures. It was perfect for us! We really enjoyed the San Francisco movies and watched one every night! My 14 year old is now a Hitchcock fan! We explored the city by day using Lyft and then walked in the Golden Gate Park and ate dinner in the neighborhood at night. We never felt unsafe and there were so many options for dining. Thank you Steve for a great stay. If and when we come back to the beautiful City by the Bay, we will definitely stay here again.

Steve is a great host and this apartment is spotless! Great location!,

  • 5 of 5

My husband had a shoulder replacement done at UCSF so we chose Steve's apartment for its proximity to the hospital. His gourmet kitchen is incredibly well equipped and perfect for us. The apartment is spacious and full of delightful designer touches. Everything is impeccably clean and well cared for. Walking distance to Golden Gate Park and just about any kind of restaurant you could ask for. We took LYFT when we needed to venture out. We will definitely stay here again, nice area, great host and lovely apartment!
