Forest Knolls
Homes for Sale

Forest Knolls brings to mind a few things: eucalyptus trees on Mount Sutro, houses built in the 1960s, and fog. This is a strictly residential neighborhood, close to the Inner Sunset but quite separated from it by a steep hill. Quiet streets, hiking paths on Mount Sutro, and houses on hillside stilts set Forest Knolls apart.

    Neighborhood Vibe

    There is no commercial district within the neighborhood, and getting around is easiest with a car. Almost all homes have a garage, and most homes have two car garages, but if driving isn’t your cup of tea (or coffee), then you probably won’t feel very happy living in Forest Knolls.


    Popular Home Styles

    The neighborhood consists almost exclusively of single-family homes, although there are some smaller unit buildings, and condominiums or tenancies-in-common in smaller buildings that have been converted. There is a proposed condo project that may eventually be built, but the neighborhood overwhelmingly consists of single family homes that were built in or after the 1960s.


    Getting Around 

    Car! There are some bus lines that serve the neighborhood, but as a general rule, and like many other District 4 (west of Twin Peaks) neighborhoods, Forest Knolls homes assume that you’ve already got a car.

    More About Forest Knolls

    Forest Knolls is immediately across the street from the Midtown Terrace neighborhood, but was developed several decades later and because of that it has a very different feel. Most of the homes in Forest Knolls were constructed in the 1960s and 1970s, although some lots remained vacant until later than that. There is a proposed condominium development on the north side of the neighborhood, but that project has been stalled for years. It is bounded along the southeast side by Clarendon Ave., while Laguna Honda is the western boundary, and the UCSF campus and open space areas act as the northern boundary of the neighborhood.
