Homes

Pacific Heights features a wonderful variety of designs to suit the needs of those looking to invest in a new home.

Where to Live

Originating in the late 19th century with smaller Victorian homes still visible today, sizable period-piece homes amass the streets of Pacific Heights today. Mission Revival, Queen Anne, Edwardian, and pastel-painted Victorians richly characterize this area into what many perceive to be the epitome of San Francisco style. Condos and apartments are available for rent but be prepared to pay a big price to reside in this privileged abode.

Where to Eat

Variety is the spice of life in restaurants for Pacific Heights. Italian, Mediterranean, French, and Indian, all favored and frequented by locals here. New sandwich houses and cafes regularly pop up to keep up with residents ever-changing eclectic tastes. For a real culinary experience, try a French-Vietnamese sandwich shop on Fillmore Street that locals rave about.

What You'll See

Scattered amongst the many International and American tourists taking advantage of the esthetic opulence of curb appeal are perfectly coiffed and dappper locals navigating their way through the neighborhood's streets with ease. Upscale shopping keeps long time residents and what locals refer to as, "Old Money," in high rotation. Tourists stop in the middle of busy streets to wonder in awe of scenic views.

Friday Night Fun

Though considered a downtempo section of the city when the sun goes down, there are several restaurants that have locals dining and reveling in the relaxed atmosphere. Locals check out bars along Fillmore Street on Friday nights, which are usually crammed but are a great place to network. For those who enjoy cinemas, Clay Theater, one of the oldest art-houses in the city, has midnight showings of independent and foreign films.

The Perfect Sunday

Though mostly catering to women, high-end European boutiques and shops are in high demand during day light hours. Specialty shops like stationary, home goods, and rustic antiques are really the true gems of this neighborhood. For dog walking, frisbee-throwing, and general lazing about, Alta Plaza Park boasts tremendous views of the city while Lafayette Park is where locals go to walk barefoot while in business suits on conference calls.
