Saint Francis Wood
Built in the 1910’s on the southwest side of San Francisco, the neighborhood of Saint Francis Wood offers an atmosphere of luxury and elegance. St. Francis Wood keeps a low profile behind its ornate gateways and curving lanes with Eucalyptus shade trees and towering pines. The utility lines are underground, evidence that the original planners intended to create a distinctive home environment.
Developed for the affluent families of San Francisco, with homes designed by the prominent architects of the day, the showplace homes of St. Francis Wood range in style from Normandy farmhouse to Spanish Mission, Georgian, and Tudor. This quiet, residential neighborhood was built on the “city beautiful plan" promoted by popular architect of the time, Daniel Burnham.
While businesses are prohibited, St. Francis Wood residents enjoy easy access to both the West Portal shopping district as well as Stern Grove and Pine Lake Park. Stonestown Galleria, Highway 280 and Highway 1 are all accessed easily via 19th Avenue. The M-Ocean View and K-Ingleside Street Car lines takes residents to City College, San Francisco State, and West Portal, where commuters can connect to downtown destinations.
