About Presidio Heights

For some it is Presidio Heights and not Pacific Heights that takes top honors for the most coveted neighborhood in San Francisco. Between Presidio Heights and San Francisco Bay is the 1700 acre Presidio National Park. It is the largest urban national park in the United States and it’s more than 22 miles of hiking trails offer incredible views of some of the most beautiful scenery in the world.

Perhaps it is the reduced access created by the National Park but Presidio Heights is a quieter, less busy neighborhood with tree-lined streets, parks and playgrounds, and families with children.The houses here can be just as grand as in Pacific Heights but here there is a greater sense of understated elegance. There are mostly single family homes in Presidio Heights and many have great views of the national park, the Golden Gate Bridge and the Bay.For shopping, Presidio Heights has Sacramento Street with clothing stores, restaurants, baby and children stores, and home furnishings stores. On the South-side of Presidio Heights is Laurel Village a well appointed neighborhood shopping center with many interesting shops, grocery stores, restaurants and cafes.

Here is an excerpt of our Pacific Union website’s description of Presidio Heights:

Presidio Heights is Pacific Heights without the pretension. While some of the grandest homes in the city are found in this neighborhood, including the cluster of mansions circled around the gated enclave of Presidio Terrace, Presidio Heights is very much a family-friendly community.

On most days you can find families with young kids picnicking in Presidio Park, or romping through the nearby Julius Kahn playground. Preschools in the neighborhood include the Montessori Children’s House and the Temple Emanu-El Pre-School. Local elementary School Claire Lillienthal scores in the upper 10% of all California elementary schools.

The older, established homes along the wide, quiet streets of Presidio Heights are mainly 2-story, large, and complete with front and back yards.

Purchasing property is a complex and legal process and this is even more true in San Francisco where the stakes are higher, buyers and sellers tend to be more competitive and things can sometimes get contentious. Real estate is competitive and if you want the best outcome, you need the best representation. You want someone that knows the ropes, knows the properties and knows the players. Perhaps most importantly you need someone that is respected and trusted by the top agents in the city, someone that is part of the core group of San Francisco Realtors that handle the great majority of luxury home transactions year after year; you want Peggy Economos and the team at
