Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
Visit San Francisco and stay in our stunning, panoramic view apartment, in San Francisco’s elegant Pacific Heights neighborhood. 1856 Green, No. 4 is walking distance to a vibrant shopping district on Union Street and just one block from some of the best restaurants In the world. The apartment is located on a sunny and quiet residential street in Pacific Heights, in the same block where author, Amy Tan, lived early in her career.
The sweeping views from the large living room and dining room offer dramatic views of the Golden Gate Bridge and the San Francisco Bay and are perhaps the highlight of this spacious two-bedroom property. The newly renovated apartment (to sleep six), has an architect’s touch, and includes a gracious living room and fireplace with flat screen TV’s, (and new sofa bed), formal dining room, brand new, complete kitchen, with Wedgewood china, Dansk flatware, and Dansk pots and pans, designed by Quistgaard; two bedrooms with Ralph Lauren linens, new mattresses; oriental carpets; great artwork; two newly renovated baths; and a private laundry.
The apartment has access to a shared backyard, and a wonderful, productive Meyer lemon tree. In the tradition of Alice Waters and Chez Panisse, you can pick your own lemons and make your own salad dressing, for a world class salad with greens from Northern California farms!
Just one block from Union Street, the heart of Pacific Heights, our location provides access to amazing shopping and restaurants, as well as coffee shops, bars, galleries, museums, parks, and churches, a frequent bus stop, and a major thoroughfare for taxis.
The apartment is an easy taxi ride to Union Square and the San Francisco headquarters of Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom’s, Macy’s, and Williams Sonoma; as well as to the Ferry Building and the new de Young Museum. Or you can venture out indeed all over San Francisco, to experience the hottest new spots in SOMA, North Beach, Nob Hill, or the Museum district. This is a wonderful home away from home for a couple, or two, a young family, or a corporate executive visiting the city on business. Discover San Francisco from our spacious and elegant apartment, enjoy world class views, an ideal location, and the ultimate in convenience!

About the Owner
Our family has invested in real estate in San Francisco for almost two decades, and one of our favorite properties is 1856 Green, in Pacific Heights. It is a small residential apartment building, on a quiet, sunny street, just one block from great restaurants and world class shopping on Union Street. I can’t wait to be living here full time!
The panoramic views from the large living room and dining room are glorious, with views of the Golden Gate Bridge and the San Francisco Bay. The high coffered ceilings, large rooms, and wide hallways provide a relaxed elegance to the environment. We have spent the last winter renovating the bathrooms and the kitchen, with high end appliances; choosing Ralph Lauren linens for the bedrooms; selecting and hanging chandeliers; installing wifi and cable TV; and selecting furniture and artwork from our home in Nashville. Voila! After a few daunting moments, it is perfect.
Could be better
My family arrived to the apartment after a long flight from Florida and could not get in, the people before us had not left the key. We waited for 40 minutes for someone to come let us in. The apartment was nice but some improvements could be made. There were not enough towels for 6 people and they were white but some had stains on them. There also were not enough drinking glasses, cereal bowls we ate cereal out of large cups. The glasses were very fancy and that was nice but just not enough regular drinking glasses. There was only 1 dishtowel to dry dishes with for a whole week that wasn't enough. The apartment had a sleeper which 2 of our younger daughters slept on but it was a small couch after you closed it up big enough for 2-3 small people to sit on and then 1 other chair and a rocking chair so we found ourselves in the evening while winding down sitting at the table in chairs to watch t.v. there just wasn't enough seating for 6 people. When coming and going from the apartment the apartment downstairs had a strong smoke smell and it would creep up the stairs and you could smell it pretty strong. There were only 3 rolls of toilet paper for 6 people for 6 days, we had to go buy more during our stay. There is a drawer in the kitchen with plastic bags take them to the store otherwise you get charged for every bag you use when bringing your supplies you need back to the apartment. This would have been nice to know while staying there. A couple extra pillows would have been nice also. We did cook a couple of meals at the apartment instead of going out and that is a possibility there are enough pots and pans. It would be nice if there were already coffee filters there for the coffee pot we had to go buy some to have coffee the first morning. The washer and dryer is great but a laundry basket would be nice to have. The beds were very comfortable. The apartment was clean for the most part but when we were leaving checking under beds for anything that we might leave we found an old sock that didn't belong to us so not sure if the cleaning crew is doing a good enough job. The view was priceless we did have some clear views of the golden gate bridge from the living room. This is a nice place to stay and convenient to transportation but just a few things here and there would make a stay so much nicer.
More than what we ask for.
I and my family arrived the first night of June and as soon we opened the door my son's, daughter and husband eyes lit up with awe and excitement. Immediately my 3 yr. old son couldn't stop himself from running back and forth down the long hall way that start at the entrance. It was like we had all found our little piece of happiness. I don't think I will ever get tired of waking up to the spectacular views of the city. This property was soooo accommodating to me and my family the only thing I needed to buy were groceries. We would definitely stay at this property again for our next visit. Thank you Dr. Manning.
My wife and I decided to spend a month in San Francisco and 1856 Green was a great choice. The apartment is located in one of the most accessible parts of The City and is walking distance to just about everything--especially Union Street, Filmore Street, and Chestnut. The unit has nice bay views from the living room/dining room which we found very peaceful and special. While we never cooked during our stay, the kitchen was recently redone with new appliances and is well-stocked with anything someone might need. The bathrooms, too, had been recently remodeled and were very nice. The bedrooms, living room/dining room, and entry hall were a little dated for our taste but were perfectly adequate for our stay, and the owner was very responsive to anything that came up. In summary, if you are looking for a great home base to get a real feel for San Francisco and all it has to offer, 1856 Green #4 couldn't be a better choice.
My husband and I and our young son had a fabulous time staying at this apartment for a week this summer.
The apartment is very open, lots of light, wide hallways and spacious rooms. Bathrooms are brand new and stocked with fluffy white towels, hair dryers, toilet paper, and even a few nice-to-haves like pretty seashell soaps. Kitchen was a joy to cook in - gourmet appliances, nice china, tons of space. Might only have asked for an easier-to-use coffeemaker and a few steak knives, but with Starbucks and great restaurants just a block away, it was no big deal. Bedrooms are spacious and comfortable with cool, clean linens and beautiful chandeliers. The dining room and living room were also very comfortable - cable, books, a fireplace, plenty of seating - we all felt right at home. In-unit laundry was a huge plus, especially with our little one. And of course, we loved the gorgeous view. We drank it in every day with my little one running to the windows to say, "Good morning, Golden Gate Bridge!"
The neighborhood is AWESOME. It's one block from Union Street, which has a ton of shopping, restaurants, and bus lines that take you wherever you want to go. You don't need a car in this city, but if you have one (which we did for some of the day trips we made), there's a parking garage two blocks away. Street parking is essentially non-existent, but with the garage nearby, that's not a problem.
It's clear the owner, Sherry, takes a lot of pride in this place. She was very clear in her communications for how to enter/leave the apartment; her contract was straightforward; and she was very easy to deal with. The apartment was very clean, and while we were there, she even had the carpet replaced in the stairway leading up to the apartment.
Overall, in our various VRBO experiences, this is another winner!
