Welcome to Presidio Heights

Residential gem adjacent to the Presidio National Park.

Situated in the northernmost area of San Francisco, Presidio Heights is an unusual community, smaller than a quarter of a square mile and bordering a national historic landmark. Since the Presidio was decommissioned as a U.S. Army post, it has become a distinguished place to settle down. Considering that most of the area’s homes were built for military personnel, you’ll rarely find studios or one-bedrooms (single-family homes are more common). Eclectic and historic, Presidio Heights is an exceptional San Francisco neighborhood.

What to Love

  • Plenty of parks and hiking trails
  • Upscale living apart from busy city life
  • Grand estates surrounded by lush parkland

Local Lifestyle

Life in Presidio Heights is as sophisticated as it is serene. Locals head to Clement Street to browse various shops and dine at fabulous restaurants far away from city noise and traffic. Those seeking respite from the buzzy city adore this neighborhood.

One of the community’s significant advantages is the parkland just north of the residential and commercial sectors. The Presidio gives residents plenty of space to get fresh air, jog, hike, or spend a blissful afternoon at the beach. Grab a laid-back drink after work, savor a quiet dinner with loved ones, and relish a gorgeous Northern California day at the park.

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

Your weekly shopping and dining needs are easily met within the community. You can do all your weekly grocery shopping at Cal-Mart, the Bay Area’s last independent and family-owned supermarket. Cal-Mart offers the freshest produce, an extensive selection of gourmet products, a full-service deli, a fantastic bakery, and a full-service meat department.

When cooking at home is not an option, there is Presidio Social Club. Come for brunch or dinner and order upscale dishes such as sunshine deviled eggs and caviar, classic Croque madame, and hand-cut wagyu steak tartare.

Find all your home decor needs, from light fixtures and rugs to hanging rattan chairs and Bennet chaises, at Serena & Lily San Francisco (your home will soon reflect your style). Treat yourself to a well-deserved pair of diamond earrings and snag some gorgeous enamel cufflinks at Meriwether.

Things to Do

While Presidio Heights is on the quiet side, it still provides plenty of fun pastimes and green space. One of San Francisco’s main attractions beloved by tourists and natives is the iconic Golden Gate Bridge. It’s perfect for a stroll, bike ride, guided tour, or simply enjoying a quiet, reflective moment. When a nature trip is in order, Baker Beach fits the bill. This charming one-mile beach features scenic bluffs, fishing spots, picnic tables, and gorgeous views of the Golden Gate Bridge.

Explore Presidio’s beginnings at The Main Post, where you’ll find cultural events and attractions, eateries, cafes, archeology sites, a green outdoor event space, and art installations by Andy Goldsworthy. There’s so much to discover; you can easily spend hours here. As you make your east through the park, you’ll come across Lucasfilm, an American film and television production company founded by world-renowned George Lucas. While Lucasfilm’s campuses are not open for public tours, visitors are welcome to visit and revel in the 17 acres of beautifully landscaped public space at the Letterman Digital Arts Center.
