About this listing
This home has belonged to my family since it was built in 1922. Our home is bright, comfortable, clean and spacious. There are hardwood floors throughout and lots of windows to let in fresh air and light. With a large living room, formal dining room, and a kitchen stocked by folks who love to cook, we find ourselves spending a lot of time in the front of the house. The backyard is accessed from the kitchen, and is equipped with a propane BBQ, table and chairs, and a wonderful play structure for the kids.
The master bedroom has a half-bath and a comfortable queen bed. The second bedroom is the kids' room and has two beds, one full and one twin. The playroom is accessed through the second bedroom and is stocked with toys sure to please young children of a variety of ages. The third bedroom is used as a home office, with high-speed internet access (wifi). The full bathroom has a shower over the tub and has been updated with period details.
We adore our home and neighborhood, and hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.
Interaction with Guests
We are always available by phone, text, and/or e-mail.
Our block is very quiet, neighborly, and family friendly. We are walking distance to the many shops and restaurants on Solano Avenue, as well as the Gourmet Ghetto (Chez Panisse, The Cheese Board, Cesar, Epicurious Garden, etc.). Public transportation is easily accessible and there is plenty of parking on the street and in the driveway. Tilden Regional Park is a short drive up the hill, and San Francisco is about 20 minutes away. There are endless options for cultural events, music events, Farmers' Markets, museums, galleries, hiking/biking, water activities, etc. If you let us know what you're interested in doing, we'd be more than happy to offer recommendations.
Our neighborhood is very walkable (83 out of 100 Walk Score), and there is a local bus and train system as well. While walking and biking are great options, we would recommend having a car to fully appreciate all that the area has to offer.
This property is strictly non-smoking, indoors and out. We do not allow pets during rental stays, though we do have a service dog and a cat - please let us know if allergies are a problem.
There are two couches which can be used for additional guests. Please inquire before booking if you will have more than 4 people in your party.
This is our full-time residence. We travel when our home is being rented by others. We love our home and hope that you'll enjoy it as much as we do, as well as treat it with the same respect that we do.
