A Queen Anne cottage built in 1890, it looks small from our quiet, tree-lined street, but it has 3 stories and plenty of room. Each room is cozy and stylish, including a room designed for children. Has all amenities and all you need is close by.
Our lovely Queen Anne home dates from 1890, though its grown in size and sophistication over the years, as has the neighborhood. It's located on a quiet, treelined little street, one-way and only one block long, but within steps of everything one could want: many different bus and metro lines, "The Wiggle" bike route, bars, cafes, stores, and Duboce Park, one of San Francisco's best. On Walk Score it rates 100 as both a "Walker's Paradise" and a "Rider's Paradise"; it's also rated 89 for cycling as "Very Bikeable (some hills, excellent lanes)".
It looks tiny from the street -- it used to be called the "Doll House" by our close-knit group of neighbors -- but opens up to three floors. The ground floor is the "public" space with an open, sunny kitchen with modern, high quality conveniences, an open dining room that runs into a little sitting area next to the sliding glass doors that open onto a sunny little balcony. There's a gas BBQ on the balcony and a spiral staircase to the back patio (where there's a traditional egg BBQ). There's also a family room with a gas fireplace and large flatscreen TV, a library & office, and a full bath. The lower floor has the master bedroom, with its own master bath, and opens onto the backyard with a hot tub. Also downstairs is a nice little room with a built-in desk, a toddler's bed and its own full bath; there's also storage room a-plenty. The attic room is large with a Queen bed and a single, a built-in desk, and a sitting area with a TV & gaming console. The entire home is decorated with unique artwork gathered from around the world.
Please be clean and decent and respectful of our unique home. No smoking inside. We have a regular cleaning person who will come once a week; this is included.
Our home is occupied by Nico, a 50 yo environmental lawyer, Almudena, 40, an international human rights lawyer originally from Spain, their baby Diego, and Nico's two children from a previous marriage, Hannah, 15, and Isaac, 13. Ours is an engaged, dynamic, and athletic family. We ride our bikes everywhere, and the older kids are avid about their respective sports, synchronized ice skating and soccer
