Twin Peaks

From both Twin Peaks and Diamond Heights spread some of the most dramatic views San Francisco has to offer. A mix of low-rise apartment and condo complexes and single-family homes comprise this city-center location. Diamond Heights was developed primarily in the 1960s and 1970s and contains a number of sizeable apartment complexes. The Diamond Heights shopping district supplies the area with a newly renovated Safeway, Burger King, dry cleaners, restaurant and cash machines. There are plenty of hiking and dog walking trails in both Twin Peaks and Glen Canyon Parks.

Heading west up 17th street off Market and Castro you begin the ascent to an area known as Corona Heights. Exclusively residential this area of the City is anchored on the north by Buena Vista Park, on the East by Corona Heights Park and on the southwest by Clarendon Heights. Clarendon Heights is the gateway to twin Peaks on one side and West of Twin Peaks and the Sunset on the other. All of these areas offer unique vistas with amazing views offering up a different aspect of the City for residence to enjoy. Homes in the area range from Victorians and mansions to family homes, flats and apartments.

One of the key attractions to this area is Buena Vista Park. Originally known as Hill Park, the 36-acrea, 589 ft. – high slope became the first park in the city park system when San Francisco’s Committee on Outside Lands reserved the land in 1867.
