Diamond Heights

Inside Perspective

Towering above Noe Valley to the north and Glen Canyon to the south, the Diamond Heights neighborhood offers some of the best views in the city and is called an undiscovered gem by its residents. Browse our listings of Diamond Heights home for sale now.

Developed in the 1960s, Diamond Heights is a quiet, peaceful residential district. Charming, tree-canopied stairways connect the streets and provide steep shortcuts and breathtaking views. The neighborhood has the laid-back feel of a suburb within the San Francisco city limits. It is comprised of single-family homes, stucco bungalows, and midcentury modern dwellings (including prized Eichlers built on seven distinct floor plans). Harry Street Stairway, just south of Beacon Street, leads up to Billy Goat Hill, a local pocket park that provides stunning vistas.

Noe Valley is a short walk from Diamond Heights, and downtown San Francisco is a quick drive from the district. Shopping is confined to a retail center on Diamond Heights Boulevard and a commercial district on Portola Drive between Diamond Heights Boulevard and O'Shaughnessy Boulevard.
