The Excelsior Real Estate & Homes For Sale

Notable names: Jerry Garcia, Joe Cronin and coulda’ been a contender Pat Valentino. Mayor Moscone and Supervisor Harvey Milk were killed by Dan White, the City Supervisor representing the area at the time. The times, they change.

McLaren Park is your enormous public forest/park to the northeast while to the southeast the Crocker Amazon playground offers more sporting fields and playgrounds than you can count on one hand.

Streets named for world capitals bisect streets named after countries, offering an insight into the evolution and omission of place names. Streets named China, India, and Japan became Excelsior, Peru, and Avalon after the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882. Some things stay the same?

    Excelsior Neighborhood Vibe

    The Excelsior was mapped like many of the city’s southern neighborhoods in 1869, but didn’t have a population of note until displacement after the 1906 earthquake and fire rapidly accelerated neighborhood development. Mission Street is the commercial heart of the neighborhood and forms the western boundary of the neighborhood, while 280 bounds the north end of the neighborhood. I-280 increased the ambient noise level at the north end of the neighborhood, particularly when compared to homes that back up to Crocker Amazon playground or McLaren Park.


    Popular Excelsior Home Styles

    The Excelsior consists primarily of single-family homes with a garage on the ground floor and a living level above, built to the width of the lot which is typically 25 feet.


    Getting Around in The Excelsior

    The Excelsior is served by Muni bus lines, and homes on the north end of the neighborhood are about a 1/2 mile walk from the Glen Park BART station. The neighborhood offers easy access to I-280 at Ocean/Geneva. While you can certainly live in the Excelsior without a car, it’s a neighborhood that has traditionally been very car-dependent.
