More About Sea Cliff

St. Francis Wood is lauded as one of the nation’s finest examples of a “residence park.” The master-planned residence parks were landscaped plots designed to replicate the feel of suburban living in close proximity to downtown San Francisco. Residence parks featured curving boulevards, lush landscaping, and neoclassical ornamentation such as pillars, gateways, and sundials.

Sea Cliff Neighborhood Vibe

Often foggy, always fancy, Sea Cliff means quiet streets lined by stately homes on huge (for SF) lots. Sunny days provide stunning views to the north of the Golden Gate Bridge and the Marin Headlands. Manicured front lawns mean the homes are set back from the street a bit — a rare treat in our city. It’s one of San Francisco’s eight master-planned “residence parks,” with large public green spaces for residents and visitors alike.


Popular Sea Cliff Home Styles

With only about a dozen streets within its swanky borders, Sea Cliff was built in the early 20th century with large homes on large lots. Many are built in the Spanish Mediterranean style with stucco facades and terracotta roofs. Single-family homes predominate, although there are a few condominiums just inside the neighborhood boundaries.


Getting Around in Sea Cliff

The 1-California bus skirts the southern border of the neighborhood. But let’s get real. If you live in Sea Cliff, you’ll have a couple of cars in the garage and rely on them to get around.


What Our Clients Say:


Sea Cliff Real Estate Market Trends

Median Sales Price

Median sales price is calculated based on sold data and doesn’t account for seller concessions. Median price represents the point at which half of the homes sold for more and half sold for less. In smaller neighborhoods like many of those found in San Francisco, this metric is less likely to be influenced by extremely high or low sales prices that don’t represent the typical neighborhood home.

Days on Market

Days on Market indicates how quickly or slowly homes are selling in the neighborhood. The lower the days on market (DOM), the stronger the market is for sellers, all other things being equal.

Number of Active Listings

The number of homes available for sale in active status at the end of a given month. Fewer homes available for sale may indicate a seasonal trend or market dynamics that favor a seller more than a buyer.

Sales Price Compared to List Price

In strong or balanced markets, homes in San Francisco typically sell over asking. In a buyer’s market, homes will sell at list price or slightly under. If a home has had price reductions, the calculation is based on the last listed price.

Price per Square Foot

Price per square foot is most useful when the homes are almost identical in size, age, layout and other factors important to buyers. Our experience suggests it is a more valuable metric in larger condo buildings and less valuable for homes in neighborhoods built with a diverse selection of styles, sizes, and ages.

    Sea Cliff FAQs

    Where is Sea Cliff?

    Sea Cliff is a neighborhood in northwestern San Francisco, known for its stately homes, lush gardens, and spectacular ocean views. Sea Cliff is bordered by the San Francisco Bay to the north, the Presidio National Park to the east, the Lands End National Park to the west, and the Central Richmond neighborhood to the south. On an SFAR (San Francisco Association of Realtors) MLS (add internal link) map, Sea Cliff is identified as neighborhood 1F.

    Are there any notable historical landmarks or sites in Sea Cliff?

    Sea Cliff is one of eight master–planned residence parks in San Francisco, and its specific plan was developed by landscape architect Mark Daniels. Though the area’s first single-family home was built in 1908, the residence park was established in 1913. Sea Cliff has since been home to a wide range of architectural styles, and many residences there boast pedigrees of distinction. These include 50 Scenic Way, designed by architect Julia Morgan, known for the landmark Hearst Castle. Both 60 McLaren and 455 Sea Cliff were designed by Albert Farr, who specialized in Georgian and Craftsman styles. Willis Jefferson Polk oversaw the construction of 9, 25 and 45 Scenic Way. A Spanish Mediterranean at 224 Sea Cliff Ave, with its maze-like staircase winding down to a secluded beach, has a colorful history as a supposed hiding spot for millions of dollars in stolen art.

    What is there to do in Sea Cliff?

    You won’t find coffee shops, corner stores, or swanky restaurants in Sea Cliff. But if you’re a fan of beautiful residential architecture, meticulously kept gardens, and invigorating views of the ocean and Golden Gate Bridge, you’ll love it here. When the tide is low, you can stroll from Baker Beach to China Beach, a sheltered cove flanked by rugged cliffs. The nearby Lands End National Park is home to the Legion of Honor art museum, whose building was modeled after the Palais de la Légion d’Honneur in Paris.

    How does the community vibe in Sea Cliff contribute to its real estate appeal?
    Neighborhoods in San Francisco don’t get any more exclusive than Sea Cliff, where residents have included tech execs and celebrities like Sharon Stone and Robin Williams. The area’s prestigious homes and manicured gardens give it an air of elegance and opulence. Sea Cliff offers panoramic views of the Marin Headlands and the Pacific Ocean, making it one of the city’s most coveted locations for tranquil oceanfront living.

    Where can I find new construction in Sea Cliff?

    Like many San Francisco neighborhoods, Sea Cliff is essentially fully developed and complete, although you will still see the occasional re-development of existing structures or proposals for new mansions on existing lots. You can consult with planning and building department resources to check open and pending neighborhood permits and proposed developments (or just let your friendly Jackson Fuller Real Estate agent do it for you).
