Try out tiny house (350 sf) living San Francisco style in this romantic, award -winning Pavilion. Filled with light, quiet location, 10-minute walk to Glen Park BART station. Lush garden, pond, fence featuring all recycled materials and outdoor kitchen sink. Only available a few weeks throughout the year.
The Pavilion: A San Francisco Tiny House was completed in 2009. Tiny house living is not for everyone but the Pavilion will give you a chance to try it out. You'll find recycled and repurposed materials throughout the property, beginning with the custom gate, covering the walls of the fence and even inside on the dining/work table and wood steps. Architect David Winslow designed the space and Shirley Watts, artist and landscape designer, installed the garden and fence. The Pavilion has attracted architecture and garden tours from groups around the world and has been a frequent destination for many visiting architecture students. A rehabbed 1906 earthquake cottage, original to the property, sits adjacent but separate to the Pavilion, linked by an outdoor deck. A full time tenant shares the gate and accesses the cottage via the cobblestone path along the south side of the Pavilion. Please respect her privacy, as she will honor yours.
Guests can enjoy the full use of the Pavilion and garden. The double space parking pad in front is reserved for the tenant and owner but there is ample free street parking in the neighborhood. Just be sure to check street cleaning days.
The Meyer lemon tree between the Pavilion and the cottage bears fruit year round. Guests are encouraged to pick and use lemons on site. You'll find a red picker basket fastened to a telescope pole on the deck. Careful of the thorns. A great sport to pick the high hanging fruit.
The Pavilion, with its indoor-outdoor gas fireplace, is a perfect place to relax as well as serve as a launching pad for a memorable San Francisco stay. Easy access to BART and freeways CA 101, I-280. A 12-minute drive to SFO. Silicon Valley buses pick up and drop off at Glen Park BART.
I am a phone call, text or an email away from helping you with whatever you may need. Alternatively, a number of other individuals are available to assist you with any questions or concerns. I'm your first call. Full list and details inside Pavilion.
I hope I have made it clear that the sink for washing up dishes (not your bodies as there is a lovely walk in shower and sink in the bathroom) is located outside, adjacent to the patio.
Tiny house cooking. I do a lot of cooking and have acquired a variety of appliances that make tiny house kitchens functional: cook plate, electric saucepan, electric skillet, rice cooker, convection oven (new), microwave (new), electric tea kettle, immersion blender, even a standard blender.
The below-counter refrigerator has no freezer. There are no laundry facilities on site but Glen Park has several options close by.
Come with Tiny House expectations: small in scale but well designed.
