When looking at a San Francisco map, getting from point A to point B can appear to be easy. The city is small as cities go, and from anywhere to everywhere appears, on paper, to be just a hop, skip and jump. Well, not exactly. Instead, it usually involves an arduous climb. But – hey! – that’s what makes San Francisco so intriguing and inviting. And one of the most desirable residential neighborhoods in San Francisco is Cole Valley.
Along with the nearby hills that shape it (Buena Vista Park, Ashbury Heights, Corona Heights and Parnassus Heights), Cole Valley contains some of the most picturesque (and most high-end) architecture in San Francisco. Tree lined streets prevail. There’s a calm, neighborly ambience. And yet you’re surrounded by luxury real estate and Cole Valley is always a smart real estate investment. Some of the most beguiling homes in San Francisco are located in Cole Valley and environs. Its residents love its rare combination of privacy and convenience, and it feels like a unique small town within a vibrant city.
Fantastic panoramas abound; that’s no surprise since “buena vista” – as in Buena Vista Park on Cole Valley’s east side – means “good view.” The views vary from property to property and even from room to room. Take your pick of the San Francisco downtown skyline, St. Ignatius Church, the Golden Gate Bridge, the Marin headlands, the Oakland skyline, San Francisco Bay, Mt. Diablo, the southern city and more. Cole Valley’s central location gives you quick access to all points in the city (ideal MUNI lines, including the N-Judah), and there’s no shortage of wonderful destinations at your feet: Haight Street, Cole Street, Golden Gate Park, Buena Vista Park, Kezar Stadium and UCSF Medical Center. Adjacent neighborhoods include Duboce Triangle, upper Haight, the Castro, NOPA, Clarendon Heights, Buena Vista, Parnassus Heights and inner Sunset.
If you’ve never explored these neighborhoods, one of our top San Francisco agents at Kindred SF Homes will be happy to guide you. It’s a great excuse for us to take a walk in the park, grab ice cream on Cole Street, or enjoy a historical tour of the Haight-Ashbury.
