Marina SF Homes for sale:
omes for sale in The Marina neighborhood often have stunning views of iconic San Francisco backdrops like the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz Island, Angel Island or the Palace of Fine Arts. This district is bounded roughly on the south by Lombard street, bounded by Lyon to the west and Van Ness to the east. If you remember any video footage from the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake, odds are what you saw was filmed in this ‘hood because it is primarily built on landfill debris from the 1906 earthquake and fire.
The good news is that The Marina is one of the flattest neighborhoods in town – a treat for runners and walkers both as they stroll through Ft. Mason, Marina Green, or Chrissy Field. The bad news, though, is that most of the area is on ground that will liquefy during an earthquake, a term known as liquefaction.
Homes for sale in the Marina District offer convenient access to the neighborhood shopping district along Chestnut street. The shops in the area are a mix of well known chain stores and quirky boutiques. If you’ve got a sweet tooth, be sure to try a cupcake at Kara’s on Scott street (a personal favorite of mine). The Marina is also a happening nightlife destination for young professionals, and some great restaurants (other than cupcakes) can also be found in the neighborhood.
Real estate in the Marina neighborhood consists of many single family homes for sale, as well as condominiums in smaller buildings and some medium sized apartment buildings. There are some smaller unit buildings as well. “Marina Style” barrel front homes and art deco style buildings are a hallmark of the area.
