West Portal Real Estate

San Francisco's West Portal neighborhood, an affluent, family-friendly neighborhood in District 4 (Twin Peaks West), is one of the city's hidden gems.  Developed in the early 1900s during western San Francisco's building boom, West Portal takes its name from its place as the western entrance to the Twin Peaks tunnel which, when it was completed in 1918, made the commute between the western neighborhoods in San Francisco  and the downtown area quick and efficient.

Unlike some of its neighbors, including Forest Hill Extension and Miraloma Park, which are primarily residential, West Portal is a mixed-use neighborhood that offers small town character coupled with urban amenities. A charming commercial district, centered around West Portal Avenue, features mom and pop shops, restaurants and cafes, and even a movie theater. West Portal is also a public transportation hub, with light rail and bus stops located throughout the area, making the commute into downtown San Francisco easy and convenient.

Beyond the business quarter along West Portal Avenue, West Portal is a sedate residential neighborhood with well-maintained single-family homes.  Most homes in West Portal boast what is sometimes a rare commodity in city living - a back yard.  Utilities are underground and many homes that are settled on the hillsides of West Portal have open views of the city below.
