Clarendon Heights

Ever wonder what it would look like if you re-built Pacific Heights at the top of Twin Peaks in the 1960s? Large, sloping lots that assume you have at least two cars. Bridge to bridge views. The land of former mayors and current moguls.

Clarendon Heights Neighborhood Vibe

Do you have a Keurig? A Nespresso? A butler to run out and fetch you a coffee? True to the post WWII-suburbia-is-the-future mindset, there are no shopping stores or commercial areas within the neighborhood. If you want to walk, it will be down the hill to Cole Valley or the Castro. Clarendon Heights assumes you have at least one car, and probably several.

 

Popular Clarendon Heights Home Styles

Lot sizes in Clarendon Heights tend to be much larger than most San Francisco lots, and because of the steep hills and terrain the lots can also be a little “irregular” in their shape. And by irregular we mean, “not rectangular.” Clarendon Heights consists of detached single-family homes, although in some parts of the neighborhood the homes are immediately adjacent to their neighbors. The neighborhood was originally built out starting around the 1950s, so you can find some stunning mid-century homes in Clarendon Heights.

 

Getting Around in Clarendon Heights

Clarendon Heights assumes you bought a car before you went house shopping. Or that you have enormous quads and love to walk hills. There are several bus lines within walking distance, but the neighborhood was built when cars ruled.
