It stands as the geographic center of San Francisco, but for those who call Diamond Heights home, it may as well also be its heart.
Named for the two hills that hold its houses, shops, restaurants and parks, Diamond Heights boasts the City’s most panoramic views. Maybe that’s one reason why, in the 50s, 60s, and 70s, developers flocked to this peaceful area to create a space where people could raise their children and put down roots.
In recent years, single-family home developments have started sprouting along the southern slopes of the area, offering residents unprecedented views of San Bruno Mountain and the Pacific Ocean.
Today, buyers nostalgic for a more laid-back way of life, lush, tree-lined streets, and single-family stucco bungalows and mid-century modern homes (Eichlers are especially coveted) are pleased to find that Diamond Heights ticks all the boxes.
In a Word
Diamond Heights delights residents and visitors alike with tree-lined stairways that connect its streets and reward climbers with breathtaking, 360-degree views.
Laid back and family-friendly, the area offers easy access to downtown and public transportation. And, with the Diamond Heights Shopping Center just minutes away from anywhere in the neighborhood and offering ample free parking, busy families enjoy easy access all of life’s essentials.
Diamond Heights was the San Francisco Planning and Urban Research Association’s (SPUR) first project in which redevelopment procedures were specifically engaged to develop the area with — rather than against — the natural topography.
Why Diamond Heights?
An oasis at the heart of it all, Diamond Heights redefines what it means to live in one of the most vibrant cities in the country. With its family-first attitude and laid-back atmosphere, those looking for ease and simplicity (without compromising on convenience) will be happy to make Diamond Heights their home.
