20-Minutes to Everywhere: Neighborhoods in District 5
San Francisco’s District 5 – home to cultural centers like the Haight-Ashbury and Castro neighborhoods – is located smack-dab in the heart of the city. With entertainment, dining and shopping options galore, as well as a mix of family friendly neighborhoods, the district is one of the most desirable in San Francisco.
The Haight-Ashbury is might be the district’s most famous neighborhood. It’s well known for its quirky shops along Haight Street and proximity to Golden Gate Park, as well as its storied “Summer of Love” past. Some of the city’s finest Victorian homes are located here.
The Castro, the LBGTQ center of San Francisco, is also an established and historic neighborhood. Along Castro Street, residents enjoy access to shopping, entertainment and dining, as well as stately renovated Victorians.
But the district is also home to beautiful neighborhoods like Noe Valley and Twin Peaks.
SaveBoth offer an urban feel, while maintaining plenty of serenity, and the real estate market is bustling. Noe Valley and Twin Peaks offer a variety of refurbished homes, as well as new construction condos – and young professionals and families are flocking.
District 5’s Duboce Triangle micro-neighborhood is well-connected to the Castro, Haight, Mission and Downtown – and it’s a prime location for new condo developments. And Corona Heights and Ashbury Heights offer buyers a plethora of vibrant and beautiful single-family homes and Victorians.
This centrally located neighborhood is walkable; well-connected to all of San Francisco via public transportation; and the real estate is an eclectic mix of historic and contemporary. And those are prime reasons home prices in the district are on an upward trend.
