One of San Francisco’s most desirable neighborhoods, the Marina District sits in the sights of the Golden Gate Bridge, and boasts some of the most iconic views and charming avenues in the City. Bordered by the Presidio to the west and the Bay to the north, the Marina offers buyers a mix of single family homes, condominiums, and multi-family apartment buildings. Close to shopping, dining, and transit corridors via Fillmore, Union, and Chestnut Streets, all points in the neighborhood are also within walking distance to Fort Mason, Crissy Field, and Marina Green. Residents are a mix of young professionals, families, and older adults.
Nestled between its glamorous neighbors – the Marina District and Pacific Heights – Cow Hollow retains its quiet charm. Peppered with Victorian and Edwardian single family homes and flats in multi-level buildings, the neighborhood boasts vibrant nightlife and excellent shopping and dining. Named for the dairy farmers that were its primary industry in the 19th century, Cow Hollow is now home to a mix of young singles, married professionals, families, and retirees.
Pacific Heights homes tell the story of San Francisco. One of its best known neighborhoods, the area features some of the most spectacular views in the City, or anywhere, and some of San Francisco’s most historically impressive architecture. Properties in the area have significant price points (mid-to-high eight figures is not unusual). Pacific Heights residents are largely high-wealth individuals and families active in the City’s political, social, and philanthropic communities, many with longstanding generational ties to San Francisco.
Just west of Pacific Heights, Presidio Heights likewise features elegant homes on generous parcels. As its name suggests, the neighborhood borders The Presidio; its historic namesake planned community, Presidio Terrace, is just steps away from the trails, parks, and golf course that the national park has to offer. Presidio Heights is a natural choice for families; somehow grand and accessible at once, and a quick walk to Laurel Village and the Sacramento Street shopping corridor.
