Tucked Away - Neighborhood Spotlight; St. Francis, West Portal

August 13, 2008

Once again First American Title is helping us in defining each neighborhood in the city.  As a homebuyer where do you want to live?  Here is a brief overview into the “Tucked Away” areas of the city

Quiet, residential, affluent and secluded, St. Francis Wood and West Portal are two of San Francisco’s lovely little secrets.  Curving, tree-lined streets absent of overhead wires help the neighborhoods quaint, village-like appeal.  The gates of the St. Francis Boulevard-Portola Drive entry and the fountain in the circular plaza on St. Francis Boulevard were designed by noted Beaux Arts era architect John Galen Howard.  Many St Francis residents have chosen the location for its relative proximity to the private St. Ignatius College Prep.  The neighborhood’s borders are defined by Monterey Boulevard, San Anselmo, Santa Paula and San Pablo Avenues, Portola Drive and Junipero Serra Boulevard.

 
West Portal offers smaller homes with neatly manicured lawns centered around a charming shopping district.  The commercial zone sits in the front of the entrance to the Two Peaks street-car tunnel.  My company, Zephyr Real Estate, has a West Portal location.  A funky Mexican Toreador Fonda, is a great place for dinner before crossing the street to the Empire movie theater for a flick.  To find the neighborhood, follow Market Street west until it turns into Portola Drive and drops down the back side of Twin Peaks.  Boundaries are 19th Avenue, Taraval Street, Claremont Boulevard, Portola Drive and Sloat Boulevard. Or just hop on Muni; West Portal is just one stop past Castro Station!
