Outer Sunset Neighborhood

Located in San Francisco’s District 2, the Outer Sunset neighborhood represents one of the last areas to be developed in the city of San Francisco.  

The Outer Sunset is a family-friendly residential neighborhood which consists primarily of two-storey tract homes neatly organized in a grid-like fashion. Most of the homes in the Outer Sunset were built in the 1930s-1940s by developer Henry Doelger and consist of a very basic yet practical floor plan. The typical layout for these homes include a garage + storage on the first storey, followed by the living space (typically 2-3 bedrooms, 1 bath) on the second storey. Given the physical proximity of these homes to the Pacific Ocean, many Outer Sunset residents enjoy views of the Pacific; unfortunately these views are often obstructed by fog which is a common characteristic of homes in the Outer Sunset.

San Francisco’s Outer Sunset is bordered by the Golden Gate Park to the north, Central Sunset to the east, Fort Funston to the south, and the Pacific Ocean to the west. The physical location of the Outer Sunset makes it a popular neighborhood for surfers who enjoy nearby Ocean Beach, hikers, hang-gliders, and dog owners who take advantage of nearby Fort Funston, and other recreationalist who enjoy San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park.
