District 8 Modern + Mid-Century Modern Homes

Even the most casual observer can’t miss the impressive architecture in San Francisco’s District 8. The Transamerica Pyramid, Coit Tower, and the stunning high-rises that create the famous San Francisco skyline are all in this Northeast District. Virtually every public building in the downtown area was designed by a notable architect, including Frank Lloyd Wright, John Burgee + Philip Johnson, James + Merritt Reid, Timothy Pflueger, and Julia Morgan.

If you take a closer look at District 8, you’ll find interesting residential architecture as well. The good news for modernists is that San Francisco District 8 neighborhoods are full of fabulous contemporary, modern, and mid-century modern homes and condominiums. On Telegraph Hill and in North Beach you’ll find homes designed by prominent mid-century architects Richard Neutra, William Wurster, and Gardner Dailey as well as projects created by contemporary, award-winning architects Jim Jennings, William Leddy, Craig Steely, and House+House.

For Eichler enthusiasts, “The Summit” at 999 Green Street on Russian Hill combines the Eichler aesthetic with a luxurious condominium lifestyle. A few blocks away from the Eichler development, on Montclair Terrace, is a sleek Streamline Moderne home designed by Gardner Dailey, and just across the way from the Dailey home is a simple but dramatic residence by the exuberant Henry Hill.

If you are in the market for a contemporary, modern, or mid-century modern home, keep your eye on real estate in District 8. As is true with most of the real estate in San Francisco, you’ll find an eclectic mix of style. That being said, many well-respected mid-century and contemporary architects have designed homes in the Northeast District, so your chances of finding your modern dream house are good!

Contact San Francisco Modern, San Francisco Architectural Realtors, for top-shelf representation when buying or selling a modern or mid-century modern property in District 8 or anywhere else in San Francisco, California.
