Miraloma Park is another of those San Francisco neighborhoods that provide a suburban feel right in the middle of the bustling city. Located in District 4, just west of Diamond Heights, Miraloma Park is tucked in between two large, open areas – Glen Canyon Park and Mount Davidson Park. Streets are curved, as is typical in the residential parks developed in San Francisco during the early 1900s; the community is quiet, despite the busy streets that border the neighborhood; and the hilly terrain affords many homes nice views of the surrounding area.
Miraloma Park is a residential neighborhood with a convenient location. To the northeast, on Portola Drive, are small shopping areas with the goods and services necessary for everyday life. To the northwest, West Portal also has shopping and interesting dining options. Commuters will find that both the Glen Park and West Portal MUNI stations offer quick transit options for getting around in the city, and the Glen Park BART station provides transportation throughout San Francisco (including the airport) and the East Bay.
Homes in Miraloma Park were built over a long time span, resulting in an interesting mix of architecture. The earliest homes were built on the lower slopes around Mount Davidson in the late 1920s. Many of these early homes are 2-story rowhouses, with the residence-over-garage design typical of many west San Francisco subdivisions. Development of Miraloma Park stopped during the 1940s, but resumed after World War II, resulting in homes with a contemporary, mid-century modern sensibility.
From boxy rowhomes, some with a hint of Tudor or Mediterranean personality, to contemporary mid-century homes, real estate in Miraloma Park offers a little something for everyone. If you are looking for a house for sale in San Francisco, but not interested in being in the center of the city action – come take a look at what homes for sale in Miraloma Park have to offer.
