This beautifully maintained apt is located on the top floor of a two storey Art Deco and set back from the street amongst well maintained, manicured gardens. With a north-west facing aspect the apartment is spacious and light with an airy, tranquil ambiance, loads of character and packed with period features. The extra plus is the stunning, rooftop deck offering sweeping vistas of the cityscape and bay area. The room comes fully furnished with all modern conveniences. I will be also in the apartment through January 1st and will then we away for 3 months. I'm looking for a responsible, trustworthy, discreet and quiet house-mate to enjoy and look after this beautiful tranquil space like a home.

Hi I'm Chris and I'm seeking a quiet, trustworthy and responsible person to take care and enjoy this very special home from December 9th through April 30th. I will be away from January 1st through March 30th completing a composers-residency on the west coast. All the comforts of a lovely home and essentials provided. Gas and electricity are extra and NOT incuded in the rent.

About me

I'm a vocal jazz musician-composer-author-educator recently relocated back here after spending several decades based in NYC/PA. My work has afforded me extensive travel opportunities and continues to take me away from home from time to time as it will again shortly. I enjoy teaching, composing, gardening, the outdoors, nature, good food and wine, literature, art, film, sports and of course, music which is a pretty important and integral part of my life and career. I love the peace and serenity that this stunning apartment and rooftop, garden deck provide as well as the quick, easy access I have to shops, cafes, restaurants, night life and beaches. I'm looking for responsible, quiet house-mate who will enjoy and respect similarly.

Welcoming people of all ethnicities, creeds, gender, LGBT friendly.
