Moving away from San Francisco after 12 years was not easy, but after 12 years of the fog, the homeless, and the impossible parking, the idea of a spacious house in the sunny suburbs sounded appealing. And when you discover that for almost the same price as a 2 bedroom condo in a decent neighborhood of SF, you can buy a large house on half an acre of land, surrounded by designated open-space dotted with old-growth oak trees and deer wandering around, it was a bit of a no-brainer.  This is the view from one of the bedrooms.
