Could this San Francisco home be the perfect place to get stuck with your family during the coronavirus quarantine?

The three-bed, 2.5-bath remodeled Edwardian house at 2266 Cecilia Ave. in Inner Parkside offers everything you need to get your work done, keep the kids entertained and maintain emotional sanity.

Listed for $2.495 million, there are plenty of spaces carved out for working from home and distance learning. An indoor slide of the sort you typically find at a park runs from the main level to the basement. And views galore stretch across the rooftops of the Sunset neighborhood and out to the ocean.

“I have to say this is like the quintessential home for our moment in time, which I think is forever changed,” said listing agent Lynn Finnegan of Compass.

The home is within walking distance of the West Portal commercial district with shops and restaurants and Muni access. You can also walk to Stern Grove with its trails and an outdoor amphitheater and Golden Gate Park is nearby.

The sellers purchased the house in 2014 and fully remodeled it in 2015.

The sellers purchased the house in 2014 and fully remodeled it in 2015. “It was a wreck,” said Finnegan. “It was a studs-out remodel.” The owners added radiant heating on the main and upper levels, built-in speakers, recessed lighting, a new roof, a tankless water heater and more.
