Located in the Twin Peaks West area of San Francisco’s District 4, Monterey Heights is a small residential neighborhood on the western slopes of Mount Davidson. Like its neighbor to the west, St. Francis Wood, Monterey Heights is well known for its beautiful homes and gracious lifestyles set in a very comfortable, quiet corner of San Francisco.
Although Monterey Heights feels as though it is tucked away in a rather secluded portion of the city, it is not far from amenities and conveniences. In addition to a nearby Safeway on Monterey Street, the shops and restaurants of West Portal are just minutes away. West Portal also has a handy MUNI station, which puts the Financial District and downtown San Francisco within a quick and easy commute. Monterey Boulevard, which is on the southern boundary of Monterey Heights, offers a direct route to I-280, the main freeway that transects San Francisco and links with points north, south, and east of the city.
Real estate in Monterey Heights is an elegant, eclectic mix of architectural styles ranging from contemporary modernist homes featuring 2 story living quarters over large 2 car garages to Mediterranean villas and Tudor estates with large, lavishly landscaped yards. Monterey Heights’ hillside location also means that many of the homes have nice views to the west toward the Lake Merced and Sunset Districts.
With homes for sale typically listing for over $1M, real estate in Monterey Heights is not for the faint of heart. If your pocketbook allows, however, you might find your dream house on the quiet, secluded roads along the hillside of Monterey Heights.
