When people visit San Francisco and the Bay Area they are always struck by what a spectacular place it must be to live. Since the cable car was invented in the late 1800’s, it made it possible to build homes on the hills of San Francisco, and the rest they say is history!
One of my favorite things about San Francisco and the Bay Area is that even though the area is small in terms of square miles- from one neighborhood to the next you can have a completely different experience so you feel like you are living in a much larger place. Living in Pacific Heights area, you are always within sight of the Bay and Chrissy Field, Sea Cliff is only 7 minutes away but there you are surrounded by Ocean Views and the mouth of the Bay, Nob Hill with it’s elegant apartment style buildings lends itself to living like you are on the upper east side of Manhatten, St. Francis Wood is a traditional neighborhood with lots of trees and grand style homes with easy access to the freeways and airport. If you want to live in a warmer environment outside the City, Marin with Mount Tamalpais always beckoning and Hillsborough with its traditional homes, wonderful public schools, ez airport access and equidistant access to Silicon Valley and the City are each wonderful choices too.
