Ever wanted to escape to a quiet farm, but still have all the cultural perks and pleasures of a city? Pick veggies from our farm garden, enjoy a lazy weekend in our wonderful backyard... The Fossel Farm's Large Garden Flat is a spacious, light-filled three bedroom flat with hardwood floors throughout, with views of the gardens from every window. Some nice big southern exposure windows give it great light throughout the day and the backdoor opens into the large backyard. There are three bedrooms plus large living room, a small kitchen with eating counter, and one full bath. The beds are 2 queen size beds each in their own bedroom, 1 queen size foldout couch in the living room, and twin bed in the third smaller bedroom which works great as a children's nursery if you are traveling with kids. There are wooden toys, special items, and picture books for the little ones. The bathrooms and the kitchen have tiled floors, and the kitchen has a dishwasher, as well gas stove, large fridge, toaster, and rice cooker. Zero-VOC paint throughout. The Fossel Farmhouse is an Edwardian style two level house, built in 1911, a bit rough around the edges here and there in proper urban farm style, but resounds with charm from every corner! It was renovated 18 years ago, with continuing improvements ever since, most of them handcrafted by your hosts. The exterior of the house is newly repainted with great fresh colors. Brand new top-of-the-line Samsung laundry machines at the back of the house in a greenhouse style laundry shed to share. The foundation is bolted and sheerwalled-very earthquake safe. Our Edwardian Farmhouse sits on a large fully-fenced double lot with a generous front yard, huge backyard, and two side yards. There is a copper firepit on custom brick hearth, art studio (private), two outdoor eating spaces, kids area (with treehouse, sandbox, toys a plenty, chalkboard wall, mermaid and dragon), wood lounge chairs, handcrafted double red brick pizza oven with grill (in process), outdoor carnival lighting, lots of potted plants (succulents, aloe, orchids, bougainvillea etc), and two shade umbrellas for the tables. The property offers very nice indoor/outdoor living. Fossel Farm's beautiful vegetable gardens consist of 25+ raised beds (always changing but some usual food plant suspects: chard, kale, mixed greens, arugula, potatoes, tomatoes, basil, strawberries, beets, beans, edamame, rhubarb, onions etc). As one of your hosts is also an expert in plant dyes, we grow specialty dyes such as indigo and madder, as well as a range of other color producers. We have our Angora rabbit "bun bun", and keep two active beehives on top of our art studio/shed-out of harm's way-but great for those who may be interested. You can enjoy some seasonal vegetables from our garden while you're here. Fossel Farm has an active urban farm rhythm with lots of activity around the property, as well as your hosts' dynamic livelihoods that extend out into the local neighborhood and greater city beyond. There is most always one project or another going on, though most guests will find it very peaceful compared to staying nearly anywhere else in the Bay Area. It has a quietude and calm that resounds despite its urban location. When we are here as your hosts you may well see us frequently, particularly if you spend time in the gardens. If you want to retreat however we are just fine with that as well. It's what you make of it. Right in the heart of the great little neighbo
