Where we want to go
Description of our house
Ours is a typical San Francisco home on two levels (European first and second floors) with an additional bedroom-bathroom(shower) suite at street level. It was built in 1912 and has much original, unpainted woodwork and built-in cabinetry. We have now lived here 30 years and have remodelled the kitchen and bathrooms. Large rear garden, cast-iron wood-burning stove in the fireplace, new furnace (forced hot-air), piano, five adult bicycles, secret room with children's books and toys. Various recreational facilities can be removed or left in place, e.g., weight bench, full-size table tennis equipment.

= marks the location of this home
We are located north of Golden Gate Park (nice bike ride) and just south of the exclusive Sea Cliff neighborhood which sits above Baker and China Beaches and below Lincoln Park (playground, golf course, California Palace of the Legion of Honor, hiking trails, spectacular views of the Golden Gate Bridge). The three streets to our south, California, Clement, and Geary, are "high streets" (major shopping, restaurant, and services corridors, each with a bus line downtown to all tourist attractions). Easy approach to Golden Gate Bridge for drive to redwoods, wine country, rugged coast to the north, and to the south you can drive inland or down the coast to Monterey/Carmel, or across to Yosemite. For location enter "275 26th Avenue, San Francisco, CA".
Something about ourselves
We are very interested in a long exchange in London. We are open to as long as nine months if you need the academic year. We enjoyed an exchange of 3-1/2 months in New Malden and would be very happy again in a location at the end of the tube or within a short train ride of the centre.
