Oceanview Real Estate

Originally an agricultural community in southwestern San FranciscoOceanview is one of the first neighborhoods to be developed in the city’s OMI (Oceanview, Merced HeightsIngleside / Ingleside Terrace) district.  Despite the suggestion of a view hinted at by its name, Oceanview is landlocked without an ocean in sight. In actuality, Oceanview takes its name from the Ocean View railroad station that served passengers traveling between San Francisco and San Jose in the late 1800s. Today, Oceanview is a culturally diverse neighborhood with a rich history.

Located just north of I-280, Oceanview is primarily a residential neighborhood with easy freeway access. Public transportation is also fairly convenient with both the Daly City and Balboa Park BART stations just a few miles away. A few small neighborhood shops and businesses serve residents, but the primary commercial district for Oceanview residents is the nearby Stonestown Galleria, which boasts a full complement of services including restaurants, grocery stores, banks, and department stores. 

Oceanview has an interesting assortment of homes, with most being single-family homes – although a few flats were built after the 1940s. Early properties, dating from the late 1800s, are detached Victorian or Edwardian homes. Later years brought Sunset District style row houses, developed by builders and entrepreneurs for quick and inexpensive construction, placed on standard sized lots. Perhaps, however, some of the most historic and interesting homes in Oceanview are the handful of small earthquake cottages that served as homes for refugees after the 1906 San Francisco earthquake and have survived to this day.
