Pacific Heights is one of the most prestigious and exclusive neighborhoods in San Francisco. This grand and elegant District 7neighborhood is quintessential old-school San Francisco, evoking a time when the city’s most prominent citizens celebrated their wealth and success with extravagant mansions and opulent lifestyles.
Today, the legacy of privilege remains and behind the mansion walls live business tycoons and philanthropists, entrepreneurs, and descendents of old California families whose fortunes were made during the Gold Rush. Built to impress, homes in Pacific Heights are elegant and boast some of the best views in the city including the panorama encompassing the San Francisco Bay and Golden Gate Bridge.
There is more, however, to Pacific Heights than grand homes and classic architecture. Fillmore Street is filled with high-end boutiques, sidewalk cafés, and good restaurants; while two public parks provide green spaces for relaxation and play. With convenient public transportation and easy access to Highway 101 (which follows Van Ness Avenue through the city) Pacific Heights is within easy reach of the rest of San Francisco and well located for commuters.
Real estate development in Pacific Heights began in the 1870s and the area is characterized by turn-of-the-century architecture, including traditional Victorians, turreted Queen Annes, and stately Edwardian homes. Although the large, historic mansions occasionally come up for sale, single-family homes as well as condos, townhouses, and flats can be found at a more affordable price!
Pacific Heights offers gracious cosmopolitan living right in the heart of San Francisco. Real estate in Pacific Heights is expensive, but proximity to the rest of the city and gracious homes make Pacific Heights property highly desirable.
