À propos de ce logement

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
Lower Haight.

Description

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
Lower Haight.

First, the space you'll be occupying: bright and airy, clean and cozy. The attic (formerly used for storage, guests, and a playroom complete with trapeze) was remodeled in October 2012. The original plan was that it would be occupied by the daughter of the house who had decided to return to San Francisco from Italy where she had lived for 12 years. However, love won out and she returned to Italy in November 2012 for the Italian she left behind. She married the Italian twice in 2014 (once in SF and once in Italy) and a granddaughter was welcomed at the end of March 2015.

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. Sometimes--not always--there is a very shy, somewhat neurotic 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. Visitors should know that San Francisco is not car-friendly. Lots of traffic and parking at a premium. Public transportation or taxi/Lyft/Uber are much better choices.

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 40 years. I am an attorney on the path to retirement. and also a bicyclist so if you want some tips on great rides in and around SF, just ask. 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.

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

Non fumeur

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.

I'm an enthusiastic bicyclist who works as a family lawyer to keep myself in bike socks. Born in San Francisco, grew up near Stanford University, and moved around a lot before I got back to San Francisco in 1976. I've raised two children in this house and they've always claimed they grew up in the best neighborhood in San Francisco.

Since both my children live elsewhere (but have left their hearts in San Francisco), I'm now occupying this 4-story Victorian on my own--sometimes accompanied by my very shy dog, who prefers the Sierra foothills, where I often go on the weekends. I love meeting new people, but can assure you that you'll have plenty of privacy, as the Attic Suite is on the top floor and is quite separate from the main house.

I travel often to Europe to visit my daughter (here I am in the Dolomite region), and spent two years living and teaching in Africa. This is a wonderful city and a dynamic, friendly neighborhood that I feel fortunate to live in and share.
