The Space

It’s much more than a single room, a little less than a whole house. Welcome to the Pierce Street Suite, which occupies the entire top-floor attic of a 1896 Queen Anne Victorian, right in the heart of San Francisco’s uber-requested neighborhood, the Lower Haight / Duboce Triangle.

First, the space you’ll be occupying: bright and airy, clean and cozy, we've just remodeled our attic floor, a project which was completed in October 2012, and had been originally executed for the daughter of the house, who picked up and returned to Italy in November. of 2012. She married the Italian twice in 2014 (once in SF and once in Italy) and a granddaughter was welcomed at the end of March.

Her loss is your gain. Ask me about it when you get here over a glass of wine; it's a good story.

This attic is...well, everything you'd want a remodeled Victorian attic to be: sloped ceilings, lots of skylights, with original redwood flooring and walls. There's a modern, deluxe bathroom with a huge tiled shower. There's also a small but serviceable kitchenette with a mini-fridge and microwave, so you can make coffee, tea, drink wine, heat left-overs from San Francisco's wonderful restaurants and eat snacks. There's a separate bedroom with a cozy sleeping nook, with a super comfortable queen-sized bed and ample space for clothes. The main living area includes a work space with writing desk, loveseat (that pulls out into a twin bed), and a bookshelf full of books, many of which are in Italian. The space is perfect for 1 or 2 people, who appreciate quiet and privacy, but also enjoy having a local host around. While the attic can theoretically accommodate three people (using the love seat pullout or a single futon), the third person is generally limited to a child over the age of five.

I was born in S.F. and have been living in this house since 1976. There's a private washer and dryer in the basement should you need them. Sometimes--not always--there is a very shy dog named Clipper, so anyone allergic should know this. But she's very sweet.

Now, the neighborhood. Objectively, it's probably one of the city's best locations: the Lower Haight is easy walking distance to the Haight, the Castro, the Mission, the Fillmore, Hayes Valley. Two blocks to the left is the spacious, sunny Duboce Park, and two blocks to the right, the legendary Alamo Square with its Painted Ladies. There's more public transportation than you will know what to do with: buses and streetcars will easily take you downtown, to Golden Gate Park, or to the Marina / Chrissy Fields.

The Pierce Street Suite is a very special place. It was created with a lot of love, and this house has been occupied by the same family for more than 35 years. Since I am now an empty-nester, I often have out of town friends and/or family members staying in the main part of the house. I look forward to meeting you and making your stay in the World's Best City something to remember and cherish.

Other Things to Note

The attic is designed for two adults so the third person is normally limited to a child over the age of five.

House Rules

California is in the midst of a serious drought so I ask that you shower quickly and be aware of your use of water.

Please treat my house as you would your own.
I'm a little compulsive re. lights and heat being turned off when no one is around.

No smoking please.
Since the attic sleeping area is right above master bedroom, shoe removal is appreciated.

There are space heaters. However, please do not use a space heater and the microwave at the same time.

Have a wonderful visit.
