    Buena Vista 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 Buena Vista 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 Buena Vista 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 Buena Vista Heights


    Buena Vista Heights is a relatively small area of San Francisco, encompassing several square blocks above Haight street surrounding the eastern, southern, and western sides of Buena Vista Park. Below Buena Vista Park lies the Haight-Ashbury.

    The Buena Vista Park neighborhood shares an MLS sub-district with the geographically small Ashbury Heights. Buena Vista Heights is on the more eastern side of the hill facing Buena Vista Park, while homes in Ashbury Heights are on the more westward-facing side of the hill with a view to Parnasuss Heights over Cole Valley.
