Balboa Terrace Real Estate

Constructed in the 1920s, Balboa Terrace is a gracious District 4 neighborhood in southwest San Francisco. Like its near neighbor to the north, St. Francis Wood, Balboa Terrace is an elegant residential park with pedestrian friendly walkways and underground utilities. In 1926, Balboa Terrace was featured in The Home and Garden Beautiful magazine as a show place of the Bay area.  

Balboa Terrace is a popular neighborhood for well-to-do professionals looking for a quiet, luxurious home that is out of the city fray but in close proximity to a convenient commute and every day amenities. Public transportation is nearby and access to I-280 and Highway 1, which runs along 19th Avenue, is straightforward. For day-to-day necessities, residents of Balboa Terrace shop at the nearby Stonestown Galleria or head into the West Portal neighborhood where small shops, services, and interesting restaurants abound.

Balboa Terrace is a neighborhood of well-kept single-family homes with beautifully manicured landscaping. Many of these homes were designed by San Francisco architect Harold Stoner and reflect the Storybook style of architecture, featuring turrets and balconies that offer an element of fairy tale and intrigue. From small, single-story English cottages to grand Spanish Colonial and Italian Renaissance Revival style homes, homes in Balboa Terrace are distinctive and charming – and no two are exactly alike.
