Well actually the sound of construction and moving trucks!
Potrero Hill real estate has suddenly exploded. After months of no inventory there are now several nice properties on the market. If you haven’t explored the neighborhood now is the time.
I moved to The Hill (as the locals call it) in June and have fallen in love. The weather is great, the clerk at the dry cleaners remembers my name and the shopkeepers along 20th Street stand out front and speak to me as I walk by.
With the best weather in the city; it’s strategically located close to the 280 (easy access to the South Bay), the new mega biomedical China Basin and UCSF and it even has it’s own Cal-train Station. To top all of that, unlike SOMA and other parts of the city it has a distinct small-town feeling with a slew of great eating options, neighborhood parks with playgrounds and tennis courts and of course views of downtown and the water.
Here are some links that will help you explore The Hill (as locals call it) from the comfort of your sofa.
