The Inner Sunset neighborhood flies under the radar of many home buyers, but is absolutely loved by it’s residents:
Primarily a neighborhood of single-family homes, the oldest of which were built in the early 1900â€˜s , it offers a great mix of character and convenience.Â Originally settled by Irish immigrants, today it is an eclectic mix of old-timers, newer immigrants from Asia and Eastern Europe, and San Franciscan’s of every stripe imaginable. The N-Judah streetcar – offering convenient access to downtown – runs through the heart of the neighborhood, along the Irving street shopping and dining corridor before jogging south to Judah at 9th Ave on its way toward Ocean Beach. You’ll find almost every flavor of cuisine, from Indian to Italian, sushi, Thai, seafood and Ethiopian within walking distance. The Inner Sunset neighborhood is roughly bounded by Golden Gate Park to the north, 19th Ave. on the West, Golden Gate Heights to the south and Arguello to the east.
The University of California at San Francisco (UCSF) has a large campus with two hospitals on the south-eastern border of the neighborhood. University students make up a good chunk of neighborhood residents, and help contribute to a young and dynamic neighbhorhood vibe. Golden Gate park is always just steps away, with a carousel, Koret children’s playground, museums (including the De Young Museum, California Academy of Sciences, botanical gardens and Conservatory of Flowers), the county fair building and the Big Rec fields being just a few of the park areas that are at your doorstep.
