Welcome to Twin Peaks
Private suburban neighborhood offering hillside views and tranquility
Twin Peaks demonstrates that San Francisco is so much more than a bustling city. While its busier areas garner much of the focus, San Francisco is home to a handful of quiet, suburban neighborhoods. In Twin Peaks, residents enjoy an almost fully residential locale. While it is easy to access nearby shopping and dining, there are few restaurants and stores in the immediate area.
Among its many unique characteristics are curvilinear streets, highly ranked schools, beautiful hillside views, and an even more breathtaking view for those who climb Eureka Peak. There is also a nearby playground, a relaxing day spa, several premium boutiques, and several noteworthy landmarks.
Real estate in the area is comparable in price to the rest of San Francisco. While pricing may be similar, the look and feel of condos and homes in this neighborhood are different. Homes are more modern than their Art Deco, Edwardian, and Victorian counterparts and establish a distinctly suburban vibe.
What to Love
- Peace and privacy
- Suburban feel
- Numerous scenic spots and landmarks
People & Lifestyle
Compared to the rest of San Francisco, Twin Peaks has its own personality and vibe. Streets and residential areas feel much more private and serene than almost every other part of the city. It is an excellent place for families and individuals looking to be set away from the super-busy parts of town and who want to enjoy a more relaxed pace of life.
While there are similar communities located outside of San Francisco, Twin Peaks provides the best of both worlds. Not only are locals residents of the City of San Francisco, but they also get to enjoy the suburban lifestyle that is common 20+ miles outside of the city. You really can have it all when living in this neighborhood.
