St Francis Wood Real Estate

St. Francis Wood is a very exclusive residential neighborhood near the heart of San Francisco, yet as far removed from the hubbub of activity as any neighborhood could possibly be. Often praised as one of the country’s finest examples of a residence park, Saint Francis Wood had its beginnings in the early 1900s. Strict building and architectural guidelines, then and now, have assured that St. Francis Wood is – and should remain – a community of gracious tree-lined streets and palatial homes on large, tastefully landscaped lots.

Spacious front yards, a tranquil setting, and classically styled homes give St. Francis Wood the feel of small-town New England, without the distraction of shops and businesses. Within walking distance of St. Francis Wood, however, is West Portal, which is the commercial hub of the area and bustles with activity. Commuters will find that the Civic Center, Financial District, and downtown San Francisco are easily accessible via public transportation (with a convenient station in West Portal) or surface roads.

Homes in Saint Francis Wood are among some of the most elegant that San Francisco has to offer.  Careful planning and attention to detail created an aesthetic balance of architectural style, and very specific CC&Rs (Covenants, Conditions, and Restrictions) ensure that this harmonious balance will be maintained.
