Lake Street

A thin sliver of streets as north as you can be on the west side of town without being in the Presidio. Compared to the Richmond, you’ll generally find larger homes on shorter streets with select homes opening up to back-door Presidio access. West Clay is an exclusive enclave of special homes within a special neighborhood.

Lake Street Neighborhood Vibe

People love the Lake Street district for the eponymous leafy, tree-lined street that runs through it. It’s family-friendly and also appealing to outdoor enthusiasts who appreciate having the Presidio within a stone’s throw of their front door. Sedate, but never boring, Lake Street is synonymous with quintessential San Francisco.


Popular Lake Street Home Styles

Stately single-family homes line leafy Lake Street, where the homes are on a slightly smaller scale than their counterparts in nearby Presidio Heights. Condos in small buildings, a few TICs, and multi-unit buildings are sprinkled throughout the neighborhood as well.


Getting Around in Lake Street

Public transit options aren’t abundant, but the 1-California bus line carries commuters downtown, and the 38-Geary is a few blocks away. Car commuters to the North Bay can wind their way through the Presidio to the Golden Gate Bridge; those venturing to the Bay Bridge or the freeways to reach points south will likely spend part of their day in crosstown traffic.
