Potrero Hill is an east San Francisco neighborhood located just south of SoMa and Mission Bay. Bound by I-280 to the east and Highway 101 to the west, this District 9 community is removed from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the city but remains accessible with convenient public transportation and easy access to the freeways.
Once an isolated industrial area, Potrero Hill has been discovered by San Franciscans looking for a city lifestyle with a laid-back atmosphere. While it retains a quaint, unpretentious character, new construction and the conversion of warehouses and industrial buildings into fashionable lofts and condos have infused Potrero Hill with a distinctive San Francisco vibe.
Friendly neighborhood shops, unique restaurants and small cafés, combine with industrial giants like Safeway and Whole Foods to make Potrero Hill an all inclusive neighborhood complete with all the amenities necessary for comfortable living. Families, couples, and young singles alike enjoy the mix of San Francisco city life with the casual convenience that Potrero Hill offers.
Homes in Potrero Hill are eclectic and more affordable than in many other parts of San Francisco. Classic Victorians, contemporary condominiums and lofts, and row houses with charming bay windows are but a few of the architectural styles represented in Potrero Hill real estate.
Fabulous views and proximity to shopping and dining keep property on the north side of Potrero Hill a bit more expensive, while many of the older homes in the southwest corner are less pricey and offer the opportunity for renovation.
