Ashbury Heights Neighborhood Vibe

Classic and quiet. You don’t move here to be seen. You move here to observe. It’s a neighborhood at the top of the hill, with Buena Vista Park on the east side and Cole Valley to the west. If you love hills, you’ll find it’s walkable to Cole Valley and the Haight Ashbury.

 

Popular Ashbury Heights Home Styles

Classic Grand Edwardians and Victorians that are fully detached mingle with duplexes, modern takes on classic homes, and a few scattered apartment buildings. Some of central San Francisco’s largest and most distinguished homes, particularly those that front Buena Vista Park on the east side of the neighborhood, can be found in Ashbury and Buena Vista Heights.

 

Getting Around in Ashbury Heights

Bring your calf muscles, a bicycle, or a car. There is limited bus service through the neighborhood, but the neighborhood was developed at a time when the original owners would never have wanted “public” transit running through their neighborhood.

More About Ashbury Heights

While the neighborhood might share part of its name and a street with the nearby Haight-Ashbury, the neighborhoods are about as opposite as opposite can be. One is relatively flat, home to lots of apartments and mixed-use buildings, and the epicenter of the 1967 Summer of Love.

The other is perched gracefully above it all, sheltered from the winds pushed around by Twin Peaks with stunning views, is home almost exclusively to single-family homes, and believes in the holy cultural trinity of Opera, Ballet, and Symphony.

Homes in Ashbury Heights are on the more westward-facing side of the hill, while homes on the more eastern side of the hill and those that face Buena Vista Park are known as Buena Vista Heights.
