Lakeside Real Estate

Lakeside is a long, narrow neighborhood in southwest San Francisco, located between the Stonestown and Ingleside Terrace neighborhoods. Despite its name, Lakeside is not next to the nearby Lake Merced, but it is very close to San Francisco State University and the Stonestown Galleria. Bordered by Junipero Serra Boulevard and 19th Avenue, two of the busiest streets in San Francisco, Lakeside is a well-kept and surprisingly tranquil haven in the midst of a bustling city. 

Despite its seemingly out-of-the-way location in the outlying reaches of San Francisco, Lakeside is actually well situated. In addition to a number of shops, services, and eateries at the northern end of the neighborhood, the Stonestown Galleria, which is literally across the street to the west, offers many conveniences and amenities (including Trader Joe’s and Macys). Public transportation, which includes bus service and light rail, is readily available making the commute quick and convenient. I-280 which links with points south and east is a few blocks away, and Highway 1 (19th Avenue), heading north toward Marin is just outside the door.

Developed by Stoneson Development Company in the years between 1936 and 1950, Lakeside was a pricy subdivision for its time, offering lovely homes and embracing the modern notion of putting utility lines underground. Although most of the homes are relatively modest by today’s standards they are attractive and well maintained. Several homes are a little more luxurious – including the “mansions” that the Stoneson brothers built for themselves. Many homes in Lakeside still sport the white picket fences that were considered a signature for the neighborhood in its early years, offering the neighborhood an old-fashioned charm.
