This upper level junior one bedroom apartment has individually hand-crafted woodwork throughout. The beautiful workmanship is carried through the entire unit, creating a nautical ambiance. Soak yourself at the end of the day in the deep antique claw foot tub. Or, cook yourself a warm meal as you look out over the rooftops of this quaint area. There is more closet and cupboard space than you will be able to fill and plenty of light pouring in from the east and west facing windows. There is a full bed in the sleeping alcove and additional sleeping accommodations are available by way of a futon couch in the living room. Located on Porter Street in the southeast part of San Francisco, this former Carriage House has a colorful past. Once a Speakeasy during Prohibition, it was later purchased and remodeled by a Merchant Marine who lovingly created an atmosphere reminiscent of a ship. Two units are available for rental. This a quiet location in a bustling city. There is plenty of street parking in this area, no parking permits required and no restrictions on length of stay, once you park your car. Excellent nearby public transportation makes this ideal for those who are afraid to drive the steep hills and one-way streets of San Francisco. The #23 bus line is a few doors down and will take you to either Mission Street or the Glen Park Bart Station. The Carriage House is located a 10 minute walk from Mission Street where you can catch buses to downtown and connect to just about any part of the city. Bernal Height's main shopping district, Cortland Avenue, is four blocks away (from the unit - right on Crescent, left on Andover) and contains numerous shops, restaurants, video stores, grocery stores, deli's, Laundromat, bank, bars, library and much more. Be sure to take a walk down Cortland and enjoy all this busy street has to offer. The #24 bus can be caught at Cortland and Andover; this bus will take you to Noe Valley, Castro and the Marina. The Farmer's Market is held on Saturday, just down the hill - farmers from the central valley come to sell their produce, flowers, herbs, chickens, seafood, honey, nuts and breads. Arrive early to buy the freshest ingredients.
