Featuring ethno-chic furnishings with a modern style, metro sensibility, and historic flair, this San Francisco jewel boasts quirky charm and unique architectural detail befitting its unlikely history. Built as a humble earthquake shack after the devastation of 1906, the simple structure was later relocated to its current site on a horse-drawn wagon. The dwelling underwent several additions and entered the SF housing register in its present configuration in 1919.
The serene guestroom features a queen bed, cozy chair, and an antique writing table and chair. There is a luxurious Turkman kilim wool rug over Berber carpeting. Also included are high speed wireless internet, 32" flat screen HDTV (local broadcast only) and a dual alarm clock with iPod docking station. Fresh, quality linens and towels are provided.
The shared part of the home features an open-plan living room/dining room, a well-appointed galley kitchen with an antique Wedgewood stove, microwave, toaster, and coffee-maker and a granite-tiled bathroom overlooking the garden.
Down the back stairs is an urban oasis with fruit and palm trees, lush foliage, native flowers, garden art, and a flagstone patio – the perfect setting for a gourmet al fresco brunch for two.
So luxuriate in the tranquil privacy of your room, sip morning coffee amid butterflies and hummingbirds, or simply relax in an easy chair and take in the delightful whimsy and eclectic fusion of antiques, colorful art and other collected treasures.
To make the most of your stay, you can count on personalized hospitality, friendly advice, and insider knowledge from your host, a Bay Area native and longtime SF resident.
