About this listing
This quintessential San Francisco Victorian VIEW masterpiece is located in desirable Noe Valley, and blocks from the Mission. Recently remodeled, you will enjoy a comfortable and beautiful interior including a gourmet kitchen, marble baths and VIEWS.
My home is located on the boundary of Noe Valley and the Mission District - the most desirable neighborhoods in San Francisco due to it's sunny weather, close proximity to both freeways, shops and fabulous restaurants. My tree-lined street is highly coveted for its charm and quaintness.
The home was built circa 1885 by renowned San Francisco architect John Thomas Welsh. This treasure has been lovingly remodeled to meet the needs and wants of modern living while retaining it's original Victorian detailing and charm. The remodel has just been completed. The home, two levels over garage, has an abundance of natural light.
San Francisco Short-Term Registration Number obtained.
Interaction with Guests
I am available to answer any questions or if you need anything. Just text, email or call.
My home is centrally located in San Francisco. Easy and close access to both Freeways; Bay Area Rapid Transit, our subway, is 3 blocks away; Public Transit, MUNI, is 1 block away; and the J-Church streetcar is 3 blocks away. You can walk up 24th St. to the hub of Noe Valley to enjoy our quaint and charming neighborhood; or you can walk the other direction, down 24th St., to the edgy and vibrant Mission District where you will find new and exciting restaurants and shops. To get to my home from San Francisco International Airport, you can take BART (approximately $10.00 one way per person), a shuttle (approximately $20 one way per person), a taxi (various prices based on the number of passengers), or if you rent a car, it will take you approximately 15-20 minutes to my home.
Other Things to Note
I am delighted I can share this wonderful San Francisco masterpiece with others. I offer complimentary Keurig coffee with a variety of flavors of K-cups. There is a SmartTV in the living room with cable access; and another TV with cable access in the master bedroom. There is WiFi and CAT-5 throughout the house. The gourmet kitchen is fully equipped and there is no need for you to bring your hair dryer, towels, or linens.
My house is not child-proof, so it is not suitable for young children. Infants are welcome; I have a double stroller and one Pack 'n Play for your use. Children just starting to walk to five years are not allowed.
I have exclusive use of the back-yard garden. Guests have use of the deck off the kitchen and balcony off the back downtown view bedroom.

Thank you in advance for following the house policies. Please do not be intimidated or overwhelmed by them; as you can see, most of them are simply common sense policies. Since I do not personally know the guests that will be staying at my home, I think it prudent that I write down my expectations of guests' behavior so everyone will know in advance and there will be no surprises for me or for you. I have copies of the policies in a few of the rooms in the house in case a guest needs reminding. Please do not be offended by that. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you for treating my home with care and respect.

Originally from New York, I came to San Francisco to visit college friends and never left. I have owned my home for 30 years and recently completed the remodel; my beautiful Victorian home is a masterpiece and the way I always envisioned it to be.
Now, I'd like to share my work of art with other folks who would like to enjoy an authentic San Francisco experience.
