Available for five months beginning July 15, 2021, minimum stay one month. (WE ARE UPDATING THE LISTING with many more photos, please check back.) Two bedrooms, two baths, kitchen, living/workroom, glassed in porch and views from the entire north side toward the bridge and Marin Headlands. A half-block from Fulton 5 line and Golden Gate Park (Marx Meadow), also short walk to Balboa Line and Geary 38. Easy commute downtown, Hastings College of Law, San Francisco State, the University of San Francisco, and the University of California - San Francisco. Celebrate the ending lock-down by strolling to the park's thousand acres of gardens, trails, and cultural attractions, including its spectacular new museums, the de Young and the California Academy of Sciences. Take a leisurely walk through the park to The Beach Chalet for Sunday eats on the lawn. Transverse the park to grab coffee in The Haight or drive down to Java Beach, grab some picnic food at Safeway by the Sea, and explore The Great Highway. . Our solar-electric house has hardwood floors, French doors, a renovated kitchen, two bedrooms with standard-sized beds, and two updated baths. The master bath has a soaking tub and heated floor. Second bath, renovated in 2021, has a shower, new vanity and mirrors, and a wall/towel heater. Entry, living and dining room have restored gum wood paneling. It's furnished throughout with an eclectic mix of art, furniture and books collected over the years, but not so stuffy that you won't be comfortable. This house is completely furnished including linens and bedding, plenty of nice towels, old beach towels, plus clean and cozy kantha cloth throws for chilly nights. AMENITIES: all utilities & wireless, washer and dryer. Cleaning service is included every other week. Final Cleaning is also included. Ira says: Thirty-seven steps above the street, find a haven of quiet, privacy, and greenery under the ever-changing sky of coastal California. Enjoy wine and twilight on the glass-enclosed portico. Savor views of Mt.Tamalpais and the Marin Headlands, from the gleaming onion domes of the Russian cathedral to the towers of Golden Gate Bridge. Fall asleep to a chorus of bellowing foghorns. The terraced back garden is planted with flowers, sculptural succulents, herbs, greens, and berry bushes. A grove of acacias rises at its summit. Below, a sheltered patio makes a great spot for afternoon relaxation among the hummingbirds and butterflies. The house is convenient to public transportation and the city's network of bicycle routes. It's a short walk to the bustling "village" along Geary and Clement Boulevards. This is not a boutique enclave, but a living, working community with small markets and produce stores. A small discount market/wine shop is about eight blocks away, and "Safeway by the Sea" is just a short drive down Fulton. Liz says: We love our house and enjoy making it cozy. We don't consider these minuses, but please know this is a home, not a party house. You should be aware that summer days are often foggy in this part of town. Parking is on the street (we need the garage to store our car) but in this residential area that is not really a problem. There's no air conditioning, since summer temps range from 50s to 70s. Biggest plusses? It is very clean, comfortable, and (we think) welcoming. You will be transfixed by the view. We like all our neighbors, the singles, the elders, and the extended families. We have rented for the past nine years to the same couple who had a yearly sabbatical at Hastings College of Law, and it was a good experience for all.
