For many people Pacific Heights is the quintessential San Francisco neighborhood. Featuring block after block of large scale, architecturally-significant mansions and stately Victorian homes, (some of which have city or bay views to die for), this neighborhood is truly a noteworthy and unique San Francisco destination. While most people think of single-family homes when they think of Pacific Heights, there are also plenty of condominiums, tenancies-in-common, and stock cooperatives sprinkled throughout the neighborhood. Pacific Heights is also a global neighborhood, with many consulates located in the neighborhood, and plenty more diplomats and international heavyweights (and a few politicians as well for good measure) choosing to make their San Francisco home in the ‘hood.
Neighborhood businesses are upscale – as one would expect – with many designer clothing boutiques, independent bookstores, wine and spirit shops, and cafes serving the area. A night out could easily find you dining at one of the many delicious and acclaimed restaurants along Fillmore street or catching the latest documentary or foreign must-see at one of two independent movie theaters.
