Just southwest of Glen Park, the Sunnyside neighborhood is a family-friendly community in San Francisco’s District 4. Residential development in Sunnyside got off to a slow start in the late 1800s, but a housing shortage in San Francisco caused by the 1906 earthquake gave the area a boost and a building boom began. Today, Sunnyside is a neighborhood of approximately 2000 homes built over the many years between the late 1800s and the 1960s.
Sunnyside is primarily a residential neighborhood, although there is a busy commercial strip on Monterey Boulevard, which runs through the center of Sunnyside. Residents also have easy access to adjacent Glen Park, which features a business district with small shops, restaurants, and a gourmet grocery. Commuting from Sunnyside couldn’t be more convenient. The Glen Park BART and Muni stations are nearby and I-280 is directly south – providing easy access to all of San Francisco and the rest of the Bay Area.
Most of the homes in Sunnyside are single-family homes, ranging in type from Victorian to stucco homes – both detached and rowhouses – built in the residence-over-garage style so popular in western San Francisco during the 1920s and 1930s. There are also a number of duplexes and multi-family homes in Sunnyside, offering a perfect opportunity for investment or buying a starter home.
Sunnyside is a good neighborhood to keep an eye on for the house-hunter who is having trouble finding affordable real estate in a conveniently located San Francisco neighborhood. Listing prices vary in Sunnyside, but most are reasonable by San Francisco standards. If you are looking for a home that won’t take a big bite out of the budget, take a look the homes for sale in Sunnyside.
