This is an enormous section of the city known for its fog. Comprised of many “Full-Fives” (meaning five room attached homes), the Sunset’s housing stock generally consists of two bedroom, one bath homes with rooms built out at the garage level. For those of us from the Mid-west, these would be like basement rooms, but at street level. The Parkside Area homes generally have more detail than Sunset Homes, with slightly higher prices. Golden Gate Heights is known for its magnificent ocean views.
Until recently, the neighborhood has been pre-dominantly an Asian population. This is no longer the case, hosting a huge melting pot of San Franciscans young and old. This is reflected in the population, as well as the shops and fantastic cuisine.
Many homes built in the 1930’s to the 60’s. The architecture includes Mediterranean and Post-War Contemporary.
The main shopping area is Irving St. in the Inner Sunset.
