Pacific Heights homes deliver commanding views of the San Francisco Bay and the city below with neighborhood hills rising from the Marina and running along an east-west ridge between the Presidio and Van Ness avenue. When Hollywood wants to film a chase scene, Pacific Heights is where they come for cinematic thrills.
Some of the oldest, grandest, and largest homes in the city can be found in Pacific Heights which features ample stock of Victorians, Edwardians, Mission Revival and homes in the style of French Chateaus. This is an affluent neighborhood, home to large, quiet consulates of Germany, Greece, Italy, Portugal, and Russia. Some of these former baronial mansions now serve as elite private schools. These include San Francisco High School, Drew School, Town School For Boys, Convent of the Sacred Heart (in the former Flood Mansion), and Stuart Hall High School.
Those lucky enough to live in Pacific Heights homes enjoy gorgeous parks, playgrounds, and, bounded by the Presidio, easy access to open space, and miles of hiking, running and biking. The main shopping district can be found on Fillmore Street, which runs north and south through Pacific Heights. Some of the chicest boutiques, choicest restaurants, one of a kind floral arrangements, patisseries, and designer yogurt can be found on Fillmore Street.
