PROPERTY DESCRIPTION

"Wonderfully unique" - just two words that only touch on the elegance and wonder that this unit invokes. Designed by the world-renown architect James Francis Dunn in 1890, the building itself is a main focal point of both tourists and residents alike. Only 1 block from Alamo Square Park and the famous "Painted Ladies" housing row, this apartment is in the heart of downtown San Francisco. However inside is where your stay in San Francisco truly becomes exceptional. This 7-room unit features elegant rooms, high ceilings with wood beams spanning across the living room, hardwood floors throughout, and wool area rugs. A wonderful mix of both modern and antique furnishings adds the perfect touch to this unit's design, as do the stained glass windows found throughout the apartment. Both bedrooms are set very far apart ensuring privacy within your party. The kitchen is complete with beautiful wood cabinets and is sunny and spacious. There is a large family style kitchen table along with a dining table for those quiet dinners at home, or you can enjoy the evening on the quaint garden patio. The unit also offers a backyard with two ancient Sequoia redwood trees. Your stay at this beautiful unit will not be forgotten! The washer and dryer are shared and coin operated; the laundry room is located on the 1st floor.

It has been said of this building that it is "one of three of the most significant architectural dwellings in San Francisco". "If San Francisco is the Rome of the colorist Movement, Alamo Square is the Vatican. The Square is the heart of the greatest collection of Painted Ladies and one of the most important collections of Victorian buildings in the world. Although it doesn't have a Saint Peter's, it does have an Archbishop Mansion."

This Mansion is located a block away from the "Belle" facing Alamo Square park and just up 1/2 a block are the famous "Seven Sisters" seen in every collection of photos depicting San Francisco. 1347-45 McAllister Street was designed by James Francis Dunn, started in early 1898 and completed at the end of 1900. It was built in the French neo-Baroque style as a tribute to the owner's great love, an opera diva from Paris. He had 2 "Juliet"(as in Shakespeare's Juliet) balconies constructed that are similar to the Paris Opera House boxes even today. The front of the building has 4 winged mermaids and Grecian urns of mythological significance surrounding the 2 huge oval windows at the very top of the building, behind which is a grand ballroom with a panoramic view of downtown San Francisco all the way to Mt. Diablo across the Bay Bridge, as well as weary gods holding up the eves, and finally museum worthy stained glass sea shell windows with gems spilling out over the balconies.

The entry way is a huge tortoise shell with a ruby heart above it said to be "like the piece that frames m'lady-in-waiting at the French court". The building is a feature on the Double Decker bus tourists route, as well as walking tours of S.F., and is to be found in coffee table books on San Francisco architecture, magazines, and newspaper articles. The "Belle" survived the great 1906 quake as it is built on bed rock. Look up James Francis Dunn for more photos and other unique buildings he erected in San Francisco during his career.

Cute Broadway Street 1BR

Cute apartment in a very good location on a steep street. Indeed no car is required here, many locations can be reach by foot or through public transportation. Had a very good time in Bernat's apartment and very much enjoyed the wonderful terrace with a prime view on the city skyline.

Noe Valley Mission 1BR

Decent apartment with garden and great location. Close to public transport provides easy access to downtown and airports with BART. Walking distance to the nice middle class neighborhood Noe Valley and the more exciting the Mission district. Serviceminded owner as quickly sorted out with a clogged sink. Big plus for just 2 minutes Mitchel's ice cream. Best ice cream in town!

Haight - Buena Vista Park1BR

Super location of the apartment, 17 min with the Muni and we were Market Street, bus leaves no wishes open right in front of Tür.Bett and sofa bed for tall people geeignet.Ausstattung the apartment! The only negative is the thin walls in the apartment ... The holiday guests over us had four small children to, but zero road noise as side street! 2 min walk and we were happy to be coming back to Buena Vista Park.Wir.

Haight - Buena Vista Park1BR

Bernart is very friendly and attentive to the tenants. For me it lacked a few drinks, a problem with the toaster that my host has settled in a few hours.

COMFORTABLE MISSION 2BR

We, 4 persons lived at this flat 3 nights. We are very satisfied. It was clean and it all worked well. There was a small problem to find a parking-place on the street, but after some serching we found it. It was easy to go by bus to Downtown. The bus-stop was some blocks from the flat.
