Presidio Heights, San Francisco, CA 94118: Neighborhood SnapShot (4):

This is the fourth in my series on neighborhood snapshots of San Francisco.  While many neighborhoods in The City have their own "star" status and global recognition among travelers, there are many areas within the City that don't necessarily always make the headlines.  Presidio Heights is one of those neighborhoods to some extent.  OK...we've all heard of the "Presidio", but that's a whole different topic of discussion.  For now, here's a quick glance at one of SF's finer neighborhoods that borders the Presidio and takes pride in it's elegant yet understated presence next door to it's "big sister": Pacific Heights.  It's also home to one of my favorite "neighborhood" restaurants...Garibaldi's.

Nestled between glam Pacific Heights and the Richmond district, Presidio Heights is a rare neighborhood where luxury doesn't take a backseat to family friendliness. Affluent by any measure, homes here are beautiful and well-maintained. You will find an interesting mix of architectural styles in the large single family homes and there are some multi-unit buildings and condos to choose from as well. In addition to its outstanding collection of homes, many residents are drawn here for the neighborhood's proximity to the Presidio of San Francisco, offering nearly three square miles of gorgeousgreenery for recreational exploration. Being buffered by this outdoor expanse to the north imbues Presidio Heights with a quiet, peaceful atmosphere. Julius Kahn Playground sits just north of the neighborhood; established in 1923 to serve military families living at the Presidio, today it has new playground equipment, basketball court, clubhouse and playing fields, making it a popular meeting spot for Presidio Heights neighbors of all ages. When it comes time to run errands or venture out for a cup of coffee, Laurel Village on California Street is a charming and very convenient shopping center. Expect to dodge some strollers when you visit its array of shops, cafes, and grocery stores serving the area. Venture a bit farther West to take advantage of all of the Inner Richmond's amenities.
