Monterey Heights is an upscale, sophisticated neighborhood nestled between six larger neighborhoods on the western slope of Mount Davidson.
The homes found in Monterey Heights are stately and often centered on large lots with manicured front yards and large backyards. While the area is compact, there is a notable variation in architectural styles and sizes including contemporary modernist homes, Mediterranean villas and Tudor estates.
The quiet and comfortable neighborhood is home to family-oriented, and typically well-off, residents with few to no options for renters. Being a homeowner’s oasis, the traditional suburban experience is alive and well here. The “welcoming committee” is an active idea in Monterey Heights, as is the neighborhood association that runs on-going social and edifying events.
Although this residential pocket is tucked away in a hidden serene environment, its location offers proximity to all of life’s essentials. Its close neighbor, West Portal, provides shopping and dining options for Monterey Heights residents as well as a Muni stop that puts downtown San Francisco at their fingertips. Also at its southern boundary is a direct path to the I-280 freeway for residents that work outside of the city or want a quick weekend getaway route.
If you are looking for majestic views, magnificent homes and a protected residential San Francisco experience, then charming Monterey Heights is for you.
