Inner Sunset

On the foggy side but not too far. With tongue in cheek, call it Outer Cole Valley if you really can’t stomach life west of Arguello. Classic Edwardians, modern transit, Golden Gate Park adjacent.

More About the Inner Sunset

The Inner Sunset neighborhood flies under the radar of many home buyers, but is absolutely loved by its residents.

The Inner Sunset is primarily a neighborhood of single-family homes, the oldest of which were built in the early 1900s, and it offers a great mix of character and convenience. Originally settled by Irish immigrants, today it is an eclectic mix of old-timers, newer immigrants from around the globe, and San Franciscans of every stripe imaginable.

The N-Judah streetcar – offering convenient access to downtown – runs through the heart of the neighborhood, along the Irving street shopping and dining corridor before jogging south to Judah at 9th Ave. on its way toward Ocean Beach. While some people will object to the noise, many buyers place a premium on homes that are a short walk to the N-Judah.

The University of California at San Francisco (UCSF) has a large campus with two hospitals on the southeastern border of the neighborhood. University students make up a good chunk of neighborhood residents and help contribute to a young and dynamic neighborhood vibe. Many UCSF employees also live in the neighborhood.

Golden Gate Park is never too far away, and this is a definite selling point of homes for sale in the neighborhood. A carousel, the Koret children’s playground, museums (including the de Young Museum, California Academy of Sciences, botanical gardens, and Conservatory of Flowers), the county fair building and the Big Rec fields are just a few of the many park destinations that are only a short distance from the doorsteps of Inner Sunset homes.
