North Panhandle

    North Panhandle Neighborhood Vibe

    You can’t swing a hipster in the neighborhood without hitting a trendy new restaurant or boutique. Nopa is a very walkable neighborhood, with plenty of locally owned coffee spots, restaurants, and corner markets within walking distance, particularly along the Divisadero corridor.


    Popular North Panhandle Home Styles

    Homes in Nopa are a collection of classic San Francisco Victorians and Edwardian single-family homes, as well as condos in smaller buildings from the same era, some unit buildings, and several larger condominium infill projects that have been completed in recent years. Nopa is an eclectic neighborhood, and the housing stock is a great reflection of that.


    Getting Around in the North Panhandle

    Several Muni bus lines serve the neighborhood, and residents on the east end of the neighborhood may choose to walk several blocks to the Duboce Park Muni stop. The neighborhood is also popular with commuters to Silicon Valley, who appreciate the proximity to company shuttles that pick up and drop off along Divisadero Street.

    More About the North Panhandle

    Just like the name implies, this neighborhood is north of Golden Gate Park’s Panhandle — the long, skinny section of the park that stretches between Stanyan and Baker. Bounded by Fell on the north side and Oak on the south, the Panhandle is only one block wide, with walking/jogging and biking trails, a playground, and a basketball court.


    North of this narrow stretch of greenery is the neighborhood encompassed by Stanyan, Fell, Divisadero, Turk, Masonic, and Fulton. It’s a collection of classic San Francisco Victorian and Edwardian single family homes, as well as condos in smaller buildings from the same era, some unit buildings, and several larger condominium infill projects that have been completed in recent years. NOPA, as it’s known, is an eclectic neighborhood, and the housing stock is a great reflection of that.
