Merced Heights

A tiny neighborhood, just two blocks by 12 blocks in size. But pay attention to the “Heights” in the name — that altitude creates views for days. It’s strictly residential, with not even a corner store in the mix.

    Merced Heights Neighborhood Vibe

    It’s a sleepy area with tidy rows of single-family homes. Proximity to Stonestown Mall and the busy commercial area on Ocean Avenue provide nearby shopping opportunities, but within the 2×12 block boundaries of Merced Heights, the vibe is all residential.


    Popular Merced Heights Home Styles

    Think post-WWII single-family homes on 25’ wide lots, attached to their neighbors, with a pretty standard stucco facade. Variety in this area comes from paint colors and landscaping — yes, many of the homes have a front setback, allowing for a touch of greenery. Typical homes are modest in size with two to three bedrooms, a garage, and a nice size yard.


    Getting Around in Merced Heights

    Those who don’t mind walking a few blocks can access the M-Oceanview train on 19th Avenue or the K-Ingleside on Ocean Ave. Nearby bus lines include the 28, 29, and 54. Car commuters can hop on Junipero Serra for easy access to I-280 to the South Bay.

    More About Merced Heights

    It’s a rare neighborhood in San Francisco that doesn’t contain even one corner store, but Merced Heights is one of them. A compact neighborhood, it measures two blocks by 12 blocks on the map, and while it’s park-adjacent (Brooks Park and the Merced Heights Playground are just across the street on Shields Street, the south boundary of the neighborhood), it’s a strictly residential area. Shopping is a stone’s throw away at Stonestown Mall or on Ocean Avenue.
