Ingleside Heights is part of what the city of San Francisco refers to as the OMI (Oceanview, Merced Heights, and Ingleside) neighborhoods. Rows of modest homes stretch along its streets, some with views - thanks to the hilly terrain. Although Ingleside Heights is primarily residential, neighborhood markets and small pizzerias add a touch of urban convenience to this ethnically diverse community.
Located in southwestern San Francisco, Ingleside Heights was once primarily agricultural. With the advent of public transportation and the need for affordable housing after World War II, Ingleside Heights and its neighbor to the north, Merced Heights, were developed bringing the possibility of homeownership to many middle class San Franciscans. Today, proximity to public transportation, easy access to I-280 which links the neighborhood to points throughout San Francisco and the rest of the Bay Area, nearby parks, golf courses, and shopping centers are but a few of the attractions that Ingleside Heights has to offer.
Most of the homes in Ingleside Heights are modest residences, built in the 1940s and 1950s. An interesting array of architectural style is represented, although most Ingleside Heights homes follow the formula of single story living quarters built over a garage. Having been developed according to an urban plan, most lots in Ingleside Heights are uniform in size and offer minimal front yards but comfortably sized (by city standards) back yards.
Real estate in Ingleside Heights tends to be more economically priced than many other neighborhoods in San Francisco, making it a viable option for house hunters looking for a modest home at an affordable price.
