Alamo Square Real Estate
Located just north of Hayes Valley, Alamo Square is a modest sized neighborhood in San Francisco's Central North District (District 6). Centered around a park after which it was named, Alamo Square is probably best known for the iconic view of six beautiful Victorian homes, nicknamed the Painted Ladies, with the skyline of the city of San Francisco in the background. This scene has been made famous on postcards and television and is, perhaps, as widely recognized as a symbol of San Francisco as the Golden Gate Bridge.
Primarily residential, Alamo Square is a friendly neighborhood with a sense of community that includes a Farmers Market and a variety of neighborhood activities. While the center of the neighborhood is relatively quiet, a few markets and shops can be found on Fillmore Street, and Divisadero Street is a hotbed of eateries and nightspots. Nearby Hayes Valley also offers trendy boutiques, great restaurants, and plenty of entertainment options.
In 1984 Alamo Square was declared a Historic District and its architecture reflects that.The neighborhood is best known for its classic Victorian homes, as well as some lovely Edwardian style buildings, and the carefully restored single-family homes, condominiums, and multi-family apartments maintain a sense of "Old San Francisco".
