    Sum it up like this: swanky, understated, and quintessentially San Francisco.

Just inside the Presidio, Julius Kahn playground awaits the little ones.

    The cream of the crop: a Who’s Who of Famous San Francisco Architects designed some of the stately homes in Presidio Heights — Bernard Maybeck, Ernest Coxhead, Julia Morgan, William F. Knowles, and Willis Polk, to name a few. Many of the grand homes have been divided into condominiums over time, but single-family homes still abound.


    Getting Around in Presidio Heights

    A couple of bus lines skirt the neighborhood, and drivers who commute to downtown should dedicate a chunk of time in the morning to wrestle with traffic. Commuters to the North Bay have a relatively easy approach to the Golden Gate Bridge, but people traveling south or across the Bay Bridge will spend some time cooling their heels in traffic getting across town.

    More About Presidio Heights

    Presidio Heights made headlines in 2017 when one of its private streets was auctioned off to the highest bidder after taxes weren’t paid for 10-plus years. Awkward! The residents of Presidio Terrace got their street back when the City rescinded the auction sale, but those buyers are suing the City to rescind the rescission. Got that?

    But that’s not all that Presidio Heights is known for. It’s a neighborhood of grand-scale homes, where prominent local politicians rub elbows with their maybe-not-so-famous neighbors.
