Lifestyle


​​​​​​​District 2 is located in central west San Francisco, bordered by the Pacific Ocean to the west and Golden Gate Park on the north. It is more commonly recognized as the Sunset District, which originally consisted of sand dunes stretching out to the ocean.

It was originally a quiet district until after the construction of the Twin Peaks Tunnel in 1918. Early homes in those days were sometimes created out of abandoned streetcars. You can see a few of those historic homes still standing today!

Most of the buildings were neatly constructed in the mid 1940’s after WWII. You may think that many houses look the same from outside, but you will be surprised at the varying interior architecture, styles and designs that have been introduced to the homes.

The area is one of the foggier districts of San Francisco, yet offers the feel of a cute small town in the middle of the city. The N-Judah and L-Taraval MUNI light rail system lines are nearby, providing convenient access to downtown. Proximity to Golden Gate Park is always a plus as well. The Sunset and Parkside neighborhoods are family-oriented and have a community feeling with modest single-family homes, good schools, and many family-owned businesses. Golden Gate Heights, which rises above the flats, is a little more crafted and characterized by sweeping views, winding streets, and upscale homes.
