Twin Peaks

San Francisco’s highest point was developed beginning in the 1960s. Mid-century construction, utilitarian buildings, and jaw-dropping views of downtown and the East Bay when the wind and fog relent.

    Twin Peaks Neighborhood Vibe

    Twin Peaks – as the name suggests – is the neighborhood immediately below the eastern side of Twin Peaks, with a reputation for cold, windy, and foggy weather. It’s a strictly residential area, with housing constructed starting in the 1960s. On a clear day, Twin Peaks homes are renowned for their amazing views. On a foggy day, though: forget it! The biggest draw for Twin Peaks homes is the stunning views.


    Popular Twin Peaks Home Styles

    Homes in Twin Peaks tend to be condominiums or unit buildings. There are a smattering of single-family homes in the neighborhood, but they are the exception to the rule. If you’re looking for a Victorian or an Edwardian, you won’t find them here — Twin Peaks was empty hilltops until the 1960s, long after those housing styles were out of production.


    Getting Around in Twin Peaks

    Bring your car! But if you can’t or don’t want to bring your car, the neighborhood is served by Muni bus lines. There is no light rail that serves the neighborhood. Adjacent neighborhoods are just a short walk down the hill, but a long walk back up it!

    More About Twin Peaks

    Would you like some fog with that coffee? Seriously, like many of our post-WWII neighborhoods, Twin Peaks assumes that you have a vehicle. There is no commercial center within the neighborhood, so you’ll be leaving the neighborhood by foot, bike, or some other means for all of your shopping (unless, of course, you only buy things online…). The Tower Market strip mall is probably the closest commercial center to the area, and the Diamond Heights shopping center is another option.
