HILLS OF SAN FRANCISCO
Barren hills as recently as the late 1860's, this elite residential neighborhood is noted for its fine homes, 370 feet above sea level, and spectacular views of the Bay. A plethora of architectural styles, combined with well-designed and manicured landscapes, create a magical atmosphere.
The lots in Pacific Heights were larger than those in other neighborhoods so that they might accommodate larger homes.
Fillmore Street is energized and hip, yet has an earthy undertone. Specialty shops, restaurants and a great little theater make this strip very popular amongst locals and tourists alike.
Pacific Heights walking tours are provided by the San Francisco Architectural Heritage, as well as house tours of the Haas-Lilienthal House.
Many fine examples of architecture can be found here.
