Balboa Terrace
Homes for Sale

Residents would tell you the unfortunates¬†live in the adjacent neighborhood, St. Francis Wood. Bounded by Junipero Serra and Ocean Avenue, Balboa Terrace is home to fully detached homes in a classic West of Twin Peaks neighborhood that’s not quite St. Francis Wood or Ingleside Terraces but fits perfectly between the two.

    Balboa Terrace Neighborhood Vibe

    Spacious single family homes on gently curving streets between Ocean Avenue to the south and St. Francis Wood to the north. The neighborhood is home to Aptos Middle School but otherwise is entirely residential. Large front yards with rolling lawns uninterrupted by driveways are a neighborhood feature — the neighborhood was built with alleys that serve garages on the less visible side of the home.


    Popular Balboa Terrace Home Styles

    You’re welcome to pick anything you like, as long as it’s a single-family, fully detached home. No condos, mixed-use or unit buildings to be found, after all — it’s not that kind of a neighborhood.


    Getting Around in Balboa Terrace

    The neighborhood builders envisioned owners with means, and at the time that meant at least one car and perhaps even two! While Muni light-rail runs along Ocean Avenue and West Portal isn’t too far, the homes were built with the assumption that you’ll be coming and going by car.
