North Waterfront Real Estate

Defined by the geography of San Francisco, with the steep slopes of Telegraph Hill to the west and the waters of the San Francisco Bay to the north and east, North Waterfront is a small neighborhood with a big reputation. Home to the unabashedly touristy Fisherman’s Wharf and Pier 39, the North Waterfront is often the first stop for out of town visitors. A well kept secret, however, is that North Waterfront is also a neighborhood that locals may complain about but, in their heart-of-hearts, love to hate.

Hugging the coastline of the Bay, North Waterfront is a tourist mecca. It is also home to many San Franciscans who, despite the gaudy souvenir shops and gimmicky museums, enjoy the great views, fun dining options, proximity to Ferry Plaza, and handy public transportation that North Waterfront has to offer. Residents also appreciate the fact that downtown San Francisco and the Financial District are nearby – making the North Waterfront a great residential choice for city workers who are not interested in making a long commute.

Detached single-family homes in San Francisco’s North Waterfront neighborhood are few and far between, with townhomes, multi-family apartment buildings and condominiums dominating the real estate scene. Just steps from the MUNI, most North Waterfront condos and townhouses are close to stores, restaurants, and amenities; and many boast lovely views of the surrounding Bay.
