This lovely quiet 1 bedroom suite with separate living, dining, and kitchen areas is located in the heart of San Francisco’s most desirable destination neighborhood, Cole Valley.
Comfortably furnished and immaculately clean, the apartment is housed inside an Edwardian-style building and maintains many of the original features that makes this style so desirable in San Francisco: built-in bookcases, French double doors that separate the living and dining room; Bay Window.
Yet the plumbing and kitchen have been entirely renovated for the greatest living pleasure and ease. The large kitchen has breakfast seating and a private door that leads to the private patio and garden.
Enjoy barbecuing or sitting in the sunny backyard surrounded by roses and the scent of gardenias, humming birds and wild parrots flying overhead. There’s also a lovely view of Twin Peaks. The apartment is ideal for two guests but the living room has a double sofa bed ideal for two extra kids or one extra adult. Perfect place for romantic getaways, family vacations or business trips.
In fact, Cole Valley is one of the hottest locations to live for locals because both the bus and MUNI train are a convenient 2 blocks away, making it easy to get to around. The living area features a sofa that easily converts into a full size bed with included linens. An HDTV with full cable service and high speed WiFi internet ensures you will stay connected to the rest of the world.
