Castro Real Estate

Flamboyant and energetic, the Castro District is the nexus of the gay community in San Francisco.  The heart of the Castro lies at the intersection of 18th and Castro Streets, from which the district extends for blocks in all directions, embracing most of Eureka Valley and continuing into parts of Duboce Triangle to the north and Noe Valley to the south.  The Castro District came of age alongside neighboring Haight Ashbury during the late 1960s, when the Summer of Love brought thousands of youth from all over the world, and the face of this corner of the world was changed forever. 

Although political activism has been alive and well in the Castro for many decades, the district is far more than a social statement, home for the GLBT community, or tourist destination.  The Castro Theatre anchors the community and hosts film festivals, special events, and a large variety of classic movies.  Interesting shops and cafes bustle with activity during the daytime hours.  At night, the Castro really livens up as the bar and club scene takes over.  The community is well served by public transportation; the Castro Street MUNI station is on the corner of Castro and Market and the 16th Street Mission BART station is just a few blocks to the east.

Despite the intense vitality found in the commercial district, the residential section of the Castro is comparatively sedate.  Most homes in the Castro are well maintained and there is a nice selection of housing options, both detached single-family homes and multi-family apartments and condominiums.  Some of the most interesting homes in the Castro District are the meticulously restored Victorians.
