Monterey Heights falls inside the Twin Peaks District and is bordered by the scenic neighborhoods of Sherwood Forest, St. Francis Wood and Mount Davidson Manor. Stately homes line the winding neighborhood streets—a community prized for its suburban appeal amidst urban surroundings.
Single-family houses with spacious driveways rest along the quiet streets in Monterey Heights, marking a more tranquil and less dense enclave within the city. The neighborhood is nestled within the tallest hill in San Francisco at 938 feet, and next to the lovely Mount Davidson Park which features an unparalleled 360-degree vista of the city. Mount Davidson Manor comes into view as Portola Drive swings up the hill and descends westward. Free standing Tudors and Mediterranean-inspired villas with manicured lawns and plenty of greenery are commonly found in Monterey Heights. Nearby neighbors, Westwood Park and Westwood Highlands are similar in appearance and ambiance.
Downtown San Francisco attractions and I-280 are easily accessible from this convenient location. Although many homes in this area were built prior to World War II, they tend to be meticulously maintained and many enjoy scenic vistas of San Bruno Mountain.
