Classic elegance backed by architectural splendor
The prosperous neighborhood of Pacific Heights is an incredible part of the San Francisco Bay Area. Iconic, luxurious, classic, and filled with mansions, this neighborhood runs from The Presidio to Russian Hill, and the prime location is a positive factor for residents. Pacific Heights is known as one of the area's most affluent niches, and aside from financial statistics, it’s due in part to its history and a booming real estate market in the area. Property hunting here offers a mix of luxury Victorian flats, mansions, single-family homes, and high-rise condominiums / Co-ops with stunning views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Marin and Alcatraz.
Commuters choose to reside here due to the ease it provides for the technology, medical, and financial district jobs in nearby offices. Overall, the neighborhood has an upscale city / suburban feel, which is ideal for the families, actors, artists, and professionals that call it home.

Local Lifestyle

Pacific Heights is an upscale urban lifestyle community that is at the heart of the city. This neighborhood offers a sense of solace and sophistication in a diverse, down-to-earth urban environment. A place to raise your family, pursue your interests and grow as a person, the esteem that has been bestowed to the area over the years is highly warranted.

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

It’s clear Pacific Heights is an area that’s great for many things. But, an important thing not to glaze over is the culinary scene within the neighborhood. Cozy, family-style Italian meals can be had at Jackson Fillmore Trattoria. Classic is the focus here, especially when it comes to pasta, which is handmade fresh by their talented chefs. Other local eateries like SPQR serve Italian food too–it’s a local favorite–but in smaller portions, governed by an upscale tasting menu. Florio Bar & Cafe keeps that trend but deepens it a little, throwing in the spin of French brasserie cuisine as well. Italian food will likely become a favored cuisine of yours if it isn’t already. But, whenever you’re in the mood for something different, try fusion American cuisine served at The Progress. Menu items here are fun and curious, featuring ingredients like char-siu pork, shishito peppers, and bonito flakes, hinting at Asian inspiration.
Head to Fillmore Street Shopping for some retail therapy, where you’ll find an array of selections from health and beauty to jewelry, eyewear, home goods, and all the fashion-forward styles you could hope for.
