Silver Terrace Neighborhood Vibe
On the northwest side of the neighborhood you’ll find the popular Silver Terrace Playground and Athletic Fields near the noisy freeways, but as you head east the sound soon fades and the elevation climbs until you are at the eastern edge of the neighborhood, perched above the Bayview with views of downtown and the Bay Bridge.
Popular Silver Terrace Home Styles
The neighborhood is almost exclusively single-family homes. Two-bedroom, one-bath homes above a garage level were a very popular original layout. In addition to this common layout, in some homes, rooms and baths are often added at the garage level, sometimes with a permit and other times without.
Getting Around in Silver Terrace
Silver Terrace is served by Muni bus lines, but is a very car-dependent neighborhood for the most part. The neighborhood does not have a commercial or shopping district; the closest places to shop are in the Bayview along 3rd St. and in the Portola along San Bruno Ave.
