District 4 Modern + Mid-Century Modern Homes

If the mid-century modern aesthetic is your style, your search for a new home may well begin and end in San Francisco’s District 4. Often referred to as Twin Peaks West, District 4 offers quiet neighborhoods, panoramic views, and a plethora of interesting architecture. Twin Peaks West was one of the last districts in San Francisco to be developed and, as such, is rich with modern and mid-century design.

For mid-century modern enthusiasts, the Diamond Heights area provides a peaceful suburban oasis right in the middle of the city. As one of the few modern tract-style developments in San Francisco, Diamond Heights boasts what might be largest concentration of mid-century homes in San Francisco, including a neighborhood of split-level and two story homes built by Joseph Eichler. Homes in this San Francisco Eichler development are highly desirable, but don’t come up for sale often. If you should find a gem in this area, be prepared to act quickly as competition can fierce and multiple offers are common.

Incredible views, extravagant ranch-style homes, and a history of flamboyant marketing characterize Sherwood Forest. Included in the mid-century modern line-up of this District 4 neighborhood is the “Dream House” of KGO Radio fame, located at 1 Cresta Vista Drive. Built in the early 1940s to promote the new subdivision, this Streamline Moderne home was constructed as a dream house for a fictional family who discussed their design wishes on a weekly radio show. After completion, the home was opened to the public and toured by thousands before finally being sold. Although most of the other homes in Sherwood Forest haven’t been as widely publicized, many are equally enticing.  Homes are primarily single-family dwellings on largish lots and include many mid-century California-ranches as well as contemporary custom-designed homes.

There truly is something for everyone looking for real estate in Twin Peaks West. From the elegant Residence Parks of St. Francis Woods, Forest Hill, and Balboa Terrace to the more mid-century modern and contemporary aesthetic of Midtown Terrace, Miraloma Park, and Diamond Heights; San Francisco’s District 4 is a fascinating architectural blend of fashionable style, eccentricity, and high design. If you are looking for property in District 4, be prepared to move quickly. As is true with so much real estate in San Francisco, properly priced properties don’t remain on the market long.
